Chicas Rockeras: Fundraiser a Big Success for Young Rockers

Last week’s energetic fundraiser at the Vortex LA for Chicas Rockeras, a rock camp based in southeast LA, brought some much needed funds for this day camp that hosted 50 young girls ages 8-17 last summer.

The exciting bill was headlined by the Alice Bag (and her Alice Bag Band).  Poet and ex-Brat lead singer Teresa Covarrubias and author and ex-Spitboy drummer Michelle Gonzales also made special guest appearances and read from their works. Singer-songwriter Phranc jumped in and joined the Alice Bag Band for a couple of tunes. The bill also included Trap Girl and Sister Mantos.

About Judy Ornelas Sisneros

I am a native Californian, born and raised in Bakersfield and eventually escaping to San Jose then San Francisco where I spent every free moment in punk and post-punk culture spaces before heading to LA permanently in 1989. I have also spent major time as an AIDS and queer street activist, which today along with my passion for punk/alternative music still informs my personal and social life. I love photography, film and playing punk/post-punk stuff on the bass. My LA Beat contributions are usually photos that give a glimpse into the vibrant art and music scene that makes Los Angeles such an amazing city to live in today.
