The Columbia Museum of Art will host a celebration of girl power in the arts Sunday.
The Indie Spirit concert is part of a month-long schedule of events to coincide with the exhibitions “Georgia O'Keeffe: Her Carolina Story” and “Independent Spirits: Women Artists of South Carolina.”
Sunday’s concert is co-hosted by Girls Rock Columbia, a summer music program for girls that “cultivates self-confidence, challenges gender stereotypes, promotes positive female relationships, creativity, and leadership.”
The concert features local female musicians with a strong voice, including Paisley Suttlemyre, My Brother My Sister, Falling Off a Building, Debbie and the Skanks, and The Prairie Willows. Suttlemyre graduated from Dutch Fork High School in the spring and is now studying voice at Columbia College.
Never miss a local story.
My Brother My Sister is an indie punk band based in Columbia. Falling Off a Building is a Columbia band that has been together for more than a decade. Debbie and the Skanks are described as a garage rock band. And the Prairie Willows is a folk band that features the sounds of the fiddle, banjo, ukulele, wash board, tub, guitar, kazoo and “stompin’ Boots.”
The concert will be held from 2-5 p.m in Boyd Plaza outside the museum. It is an all-ages show and admission is free. A bar will be sponsored by The Whig and food will be available from The Wurst Wagon.
