Want to find new bands to love, book them at your local all-ages venue, and put on a rad show on March 31? Us too! This program will walk you through the process of finding, contacting, booking, promoting, and producing an all-ages show! Learn everything from how to find bands, book them, create stage plots for soundcheck, craft press releases, and all the day-of-show know-how! This program does not offer instrument instruction or band practice, so it’s perfect for girls who want to approach music from another direction or who want to get involved but aren’t interested in playing an instrument…yet!
