Event Spotlight: Women Who Rock

Get ready to rock the night away with some of Pittsburgh’s most talented female musicians at the first annual Women Who Rock benefit concert! On May 11, Women Who Rock will bring awesome live music and a crowd of passionate fans to Pittsburgh’s Hard Rock Cafe. Join in this opportunity to showcase the incredible talent of local female musicians while simultaneously supporting the funding of women’s health research.

Proceeds from Women Who Rock will support Magee-Womens Research Institute, the country’s largest independent research institute focused on reproductive biology and women’s and infants’ health. Your ticket purchase will not only guarantee a night of mind blowing jams from female musical powerhouses; it will also support research toward medical advancements in newborn medicine, women’s cancer, reproductive health, and much more.

Hit the “Pink Carpet” for a night of live music, cocktails, and a celebration of strong women from all walks of life! Enjoy music from country duo The Hobbs Sisters, soul powerhouse Lyndsey Smith & Soul Distribution, and the sensuous blues tunes of Jill West & Blues Attack. Emcee Michele Michaels, WDVE’s long-running DJ, rounds out the event’s roster of talented Pittsburgh women.

From 6:00 to 7:00pm, indulge in the VIP Rock n’ Roll Happy Hour featuring signature cocktails, complimentary appetizers, wine from Pittsburgh Winery, and beer from Neshaminy Creek Brewing Company. Then prepare to rock out when the concert kicks off at 7:30!
