Girls Rock Camp Guelph Fundraiser: Petra Glynt / Bonnie Trash / Eiyn Sof – Jan 27th @ eBar
Girls Rock Camp Guelph offers local female, trans, and gender nonconforming youth aged 10 – 13 a safe, supportive, and fun space to learn from experienced musicians, work towards a shared goal with a group of their peers, experiment musically, develop confidence, and play in a rock band for the first time! Girls Rock Camp aims to shape the next generation of Guelph’s creative community in a way that addresses the gender disparity in our thriving, but predominantly male, rock music scene.
Petra Glynt is the dreamy, operatic, synth-based alter ego of Toronto-based artist and musician Alexandra MacKenzie. Cutting her teeth as a vocalist and creatrix with punk trance bands Pachamama and Dentata, Petra Glynt is MacKenzie’s solo project, drawing on both her wizardly mastery of looping electronics and her intense alto vibrato that drips with neon and flickers with her deeply textured atmospheric sound.
Twin sisters that shred, creating songs that wouldn’t sound out of place on the “To Live and Die in LA” soundtrack. Soaring vocals, innovative ‘80s-sounding guitar wailing and programming – it all comes together to make songs that hint at nostalgia while looking to a dystopian future. The cool kids at the party have arrived.
Eiyn Sof is the project of Melissa Boraski who crafts catchy experimental pop tunes with just the right amount of texture and haze.
