This week, Ragtag Cinema is showing The Punk Singer: A Film about Kathleen Hanna, and will donate a portion of the proceeds to CoMo Girls Rock!!!
There will be 2 screenings of the film:
Thursday, March 20th at 5:30pm
Friday, March 21st at 9:45pm
We are also excited to announce that camper registration for summer 2014 (June 9th-14th) will open on Thursday, March 20th at 5pm before the film. Come register in person from 5-530pm and meet with CoMo Girls Rock board members and volunteers and the camp coordinator from the Columbia Area Career Center!
As of last week, CoMo Girls Rock! is officially recognized as a corporation with the State of Missouri! We have a fancy certificate to prove it, and are on our way to file for federal non-profit status, pending many more hours of paperwork and coming up with the $850 filing fee. We made a little headway on that at the ice cream social fundraiser at Sparky’s last week. So many friends and community members came out to support and enjoy the best ice cream in town. Thanks to everyone who came and to Delia, Sam and Lucy for playing! We are still in need of more help so please check out our wish list page if you are so inclined.
Howdy folks! We have received several awesome submissions for the zine, but we need lots more so we are extending the deadline until September 1st. If you are one of those people who loves to do things at the last minute and were going to submit it at 11:30pm tomorrow night, by all means do that, but if you genuinely need more time we understand! When you are done with your submission please scan it and e-mail it to firstname.lastname@example.org, or hand it over to Leola, Luci or Amanda and we can scan it for you. For a little inspiration, here is one of the submissions made by Delia Rainey:
Hey everyone! We have been busy busy this past month. Organizing and problem solving and working towards making CoMo Girls Rock camp as awesome as it should be!
Here is just some of what we’ve been doing.
– We got stickers made! As you can see below they are super cute and super sticky. We will be passing them out and leaving them at local businesses but if we miss you and you’d like one for your laptop (or forehead) or other space just contact us and we’ll make sure you get some.
– We are working on obtaining non-profit status. This includes filling out lots of paperwork and making a super serious budget for future grant writing. Yay!
– Our most pressing responsibility right now is getting this awesome zine out! If you or anyone you know wants to write a piece, the deadline is Wednesday, August 15th. There is more information, including a questionnaire, in the previous post.
Also, we are having a get-together on August 12th to work on our zone submissions together! Learn more on the Facebook page.
Thanks so much for your interest. We couldn’t do this without your support! Check back soon for more information as we gear up for some really amazing events!
Stay awesome, and keep rocking!

GRC Interview questions:
Hey everyone! Amanda here. I’m on tour with my sister band Dubb Nubb and today we are in Portland, OR. This morning we stopped by the Rock n Roll Camp for Girls here to say hi and ask some questions about starting our camp. They were the very first girls rock camp and it was awesome to see their facility full of musical equipment, painted murals, show posters and full time staff members. It was super inspiring and they were glad to hear about our brand new camp. Dubb Nubb is touring the west for the next 2 weeks and we stop at the camp in Oaklad to play a lunchtime concert for the campers! We will take photos and video to share! Happy summer!
Thanks for your interest in Como Girls Rock! We have just begun meeting to plan a musical summer camp for teenage girls in Columbia for 2013. Please check our sponsorship and FAQ pages for more information. Come back often as we will update the site with upcoming events and ways to get involved.
