Ladies Rise Up and RockLadies Rise Up and Rock is a brand new music event featuring women making their mark in music in a variety of genres and styles.

The concert will be held next spring in Portland, Oregon at the prestigious Alberta Rose Theatre on Friday, April 11, 2014. Ladies Rise Up and Rock: Portland will be a retrospective show highlighting famous female singers from 1945 to the present day, headlined by local singer-songwriter Michele Van Kleef. The event is designed with patrons of the arts in mind, a chance to support independent women in this creative industry and relive music through its boldest eras.

The inaugural event took place at the Regency Lodge in San Francisco, California, on Saturday March 23, 2013 at 7:30pm, sponsored by AEG Live and BBC (Best Beverage Catering). Ladies Rise Up and Rock: SF featured headliner Fender guitar goddess Gretchen Menn, with SXSW artists folk-duo the Wellspring, bay area indie rockers Kiwi Time, and LA comedian and filmmaker Samantha Hale as Master of Ceremonies.
