Daisy Rock Girl Guitars is sponsoring the Girls Rock Austin (GRA) Showcase at this
year’s South by Southwest Music Festival (SXSW) in Austin, Texas. The original
girl-guitar company contributed to this fundraising event and booked the pioneering
all-female Daisy Rock rock/pop acts, The Bangles and Sick of Sarah, to rock the
stage at Cedar Street Courtyard on March 17, 2011.

GRA, part of a growing alliance of girls-only summer music programs all over the
world, is dedicated to mentoring girls ages 10-18, with a special focus on
underserved populations. All door money and donations from this event will go to
GRA's scholarship fund. The program helped foster the only Austin act on this white
hot bill, critical and popular sensation Schmillion, whose one year of inception has
been filled with events such as appearing in an Arcade Fire video and competing in
2010 SchoolJam Teen Battle of the Bands at NAMM in January.

The evening opens softly with SHEL, four sisters from Ft. Collins, CO, whose
classical training and sweet vocals flavor their alt country sound. They'll be
followed by Minneapolis rockers Sick of Sarah, a gutsy five-piece who are changing
minds everywhere about "girl bands" and say outright in their video on the Maurice's
site, "We're going to make girls not so afraid to play music!" Aforementioned
Schmillion follows, and then Seattle natives and sister act Smoosh will take the
stage, whose emotional and delectable music is maturing with them. Finally,
California pop trailblazers The Bangles headline the show, bringing their bright
vocals and hot licks to the songs the world loves so well.

“The Bangles rock, Sick of Sarah rock, Girls Rock Austin ROCKS, and if you haven’t
told a girl she can rock today, you should, and GO SEE THIS SHOW!” says Tish
Ciravolo, President and Founder of Daisy Rock Girl Guitars.
