For those women who always wanted to unleash their inner Patti Smith or Grace Slick, last weekend’s Ladies Rock Camp in downtown Oakland offered a weekend of concentrated rock. The three-day workshop included instrument instruction and songwriting lessons for 25 women at the Oakland School for the Arts. On Sunday, camp culminated with a showcase at the Oakland Metro Operahouse where six bands, formed only two days earlier, each performed an original song. The majority of the proceeds raised from the workshop and the showcase will go to benefit the Bay Area Girls Rock Camp, which has summer and after-school programs for girls aged 8 to 18 years.
