Like Broadway musicals about professional wrestling, music festivals bring unlikely groups of people together to stand side-by-side and watch a stage. Amass in service of music with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get one general-admission ticket to the Chickstock Music Festival (a $20 value) at Harold’s Corral in Cave Creek on Saturday, April 23 at noon.
Presented by Chicks with Picks, the Chickstock Music Festival bursts with impassioned blasts of female-fronted rock and country tunes from midafternoon late into the night. Founded by women wanting to cultivate the germinating talent of young Phoenix rockers sporting double X-chromosomes, Chickstock showcases the raw talent and charming twangs of female musicians. Headlining artists Jamie O'Neal, Sarah Darling, Black Carl and more ground the festival and hoist their local sisters into the spotlight alongside them, creating a night of evocative, original, glass-ceiling-shattering harmonies.
When not festing, Chicks With Picks runs workshops to aid artists in their acquisitions of wise career moves, such as songwriting tutorials and music-business mentoring. Chickstock funnels music into philanthropy by aiding a charity each year; this fest's lucky recipient is the breast cancer-oriented Save the Ta-Tas Foundation.
