What, When and Where: Wolfepack Art & Rock Show to benefit Girls Rock!, Friday at Commonwealth Press on the South Side.
#GirlsRock: Pittsburgh holds summer day camps, one in June at Wilkins School Community Center and one in August at Winchester Thurston school. The proceeds from the charity art created by local artists will go toward establishing the Sarah and Susan Wolfe Scholarship Fund. Go to WolfepackGoods.com to check out the art and support this cause.
In Honor of ... The Wolfe sisters, Sarah and Susan, who were murdered earlier this year in their home in East Liberty. "A lot of my friends are artists," said Matt Buchholz, "and after what happened to my girlfriend, Sarah, and her sister Suzy, the community wanted to come together to do something that they would be proud of. They both loved music and empowering girls, so the art reflects those themes. And cats. Sarah loved cats."
When I was a girl ... "They never had anything like this. I would have loved to have been able to get involved with other girls who liked music like I did," said Girls Rock! volunteer Carrie Battle.
#SEEN among more than 200 art-lovers, concert-goers and families: Rob Arment, Harrison Thurman, Mark Ramsey, Andrew Ellis and Becki Hollen. Girls Rock! bands We Love Animals and The Electro Cats both played at the family-friendly concert.
