I love heading out to Athens, especially for the music scene. Live shows are even better when the proceeds from the show go towards a great cause, like Athens' very own, Girls' Rock. This an organization that builds confidence and encourages creativity of female youth by empowering them through music during a week of summer camp. How awesome is that?

“All of the proceeds will go towards scholarships for girls who are unable to attend the 2010 summer camp unless they receive financial aid,” said Calley Payne, Girls’ Rock executive director. “The money will fund a girl’s attendance including food, supplies, insurance and instruction.”
So, you not only get to see talented artists performing, but you get to help out a great cause too. And that...ROCKS! See you there!
