School of Rock West Coast All-Stars + the Lonely H

Sunday, December 16

SIFF audiences thrilled this past spring to Girls Rock!, a documentary following chickadees ages 8 to 18 through an experience at Portland's Rock 'n' Roll Camp for Girls. Seeing Beth Ditto and Carrie Brownstein offer constructive and inspiring vocal and guitar lessons to the girls was as exciting as the end result when they lit up the stage. Good news for Seattle girls (and boys!) who want to rock out—Paul Green's School of Rock (itself the subject of a 2005 documentary) is set to open in early January. Rumor has it that the Philly teacher's local franchise is hosting open houses throughout December for interested kids and their folks. Living vicariously? Another rumor posits that the curriculum will start with "Jim, Jimi, and Janis." Groovy. All future rock stars should attend today's show, where kids from the

School of Rock West Coast All-Stars and Port Angeles young'uns the Lonely H show how it works when you've successfully wrapped those influences into your own stone-cold style.

Listen to a sample of The Lonely H's "Hair."
