Girlsrock! Screening/instrument Drive 

This weekend affords you two opportunities to support women in music. On Saturday, June 23, The Little (240 East Ave.) will screen "From the Back of the Room." The film chronicles female involvement in the DIY punk scene over the last 30 years, proving that the mid-90's Riot Grrrl movement was not the be-all end-all for women. By attending the screening you'll also be helping girls reach their musical dreams. Tickets for the screening are $9, and proceeds will go to Girls Rock! Rochester, an organization trying to start a summer camp to empower girls age 8 to 17 through rock music. Attendees of the film will get the chance to meet the Girls Rock! team, and learn more about its mission.

To further support Girls Rock, you can take part in its Gear Drive Sunday, June 24, noon-3 p.m. at NeedleDrop Records (304 Gregory St.). Help area women learn how to rock by donating any old instruments you have laying around.

The film screening starts at 12:30 p.m. For more information visit about Girls Rock, visit For more information about the film, visit
