GirlsRock NC Rally: The Julie Ruin, Ex Hex, Mount Moriah, Shirlette Ammons, Pink Flag, Silent Lunch, Midnight Plus One, Cosmic Punk 

When: Sat., Oct. 4, 6 p.m. 2014
Price: $27-$29

SATURDAY, OCT. 4 Girls Rock NC has labeled its 10th birthday celebration a rally—fitting, as Girls Rock is as focused on activism and social justice as on rock music. During the day and at The ArtsCenter, there's a Girls Rock crash course with zine-making and media literacy workshops, plus a showcase of Girls Rock alums.

Then the party starts, with eight bands playing both rooms of the Cat's Cradle: Headliners The Julie Ruin make a rare public appearance, considering the struggles of legendary frontwoman Kathleen Hanna with Lyme disease. Mary Timony's new Merge trio Ex Hex also plays. Appropriately, though, the real strength here is local. There's Mount Moriah's refined country, Midnight Plus One's broiling psychedelic pop, and Pink Flag's riot grrrl. DJs Fifi Hifi and Play Play start spinning The Station's after-party at 11 p.m. See indyweek.com for a full story. 11 a.m.–2 a.m., $27–$29, girlsrocknc.org. —Corbie Hill
