To that end, the Orange County Center for Contemporary Arts (OCCCA) will play host to an open meeting about the girls camp on Saturday evening. The event will feature music, art and information about how to get involved in the project.
"Consider it our grand opening party," says volunteer coordinator Candace Hansen.

Up until recently, organizers were still looking for potential venues for the week-long intensive project, but that piece of puzzle has been found. "We got a space!" Hansen says excitedly noting the paperwork had just been signed. The OC Rock 'n' Roll Camp for Girls will take place at the Shoreline Baptist Church in Fountain Valley.

At the event to help them get there, Two Piece Extra Spicy, formed out of the Los Angeles Rock 'n' Roll Camp for Girls, will perform alongside ¡Aparato! and DJ Michelle. The Weekly's very own Exene Cervenka is set to exhibit artwork as well as other local artists such as Darla Diggs and Stephanie Riggs.
But the evening is not all about entertainment. "There will be a presentation about the program, information on how to get involved, and interactive tables along with the artists and performers," Hansen adds.
