Rock and Roll Girls 

Female rockers plug in and rock out.

Estrogen levels rise tonight at Chicks With Picks and Sticks, featuring nine local rock and blues bands fronted by women. The benefit for Genesis House (a Lorain women's shelter) includes performances by Tracy Marie, Becky Boyd, Robin Stone, the Jane Deans, Burning Sage, and Forté to Va Dare, which features former members of Odd Girl Out. Also, the Swamp Boogie Band reunites with former bandmates Gayle Pilat and Debi James for a set. "The focus is on the women," says Swamp Boogie singer Marcia Sindelar. "Everybody is so generous with their time and talent. It's really a beautiful thing."
Sun., Oct. 8, 5-10 p.m.
