WOMEN ROCK! A Benefit Concert for Mildred's Umbrella

A celebration of women in art, music and culture.

Kicking off 2018 with a bang, Mildred’s Umbrella (MU) is teaming up with Rudyard’s British Pub and several local female-fronted bands for 'Women Rock,’ a fundraiser benefitting the theater company’s 2018-19 season. The inaugural concert will celebrate leading contributions of women artists and musicians in Houston.  
“We’re embarking on a challenging new phase for Mildred’s Umbrella in trying to align our mission with the efforts of women in our artistic community who have paved a path to continue to lift them up, celebrate them and hear their stories,” said Managing Director Rebecca Ayres. “This concert will join together some fabulous female-led music groups with women service organizations to highlight another aspect of how women influence culture; plus with our lineup, it’ll be pretty rockin’.”

Associate Artistic Director and Concert Coordinator Miranda Morris added, “In 2018, we plan to expand the scope of our work beyond the stage, and utilize the power of the arts to inspire and support women through a new, dynamic outreach program. To fund this new endeavor, it seemed only natural to partner with other great female artists and performers. ‘Women Rock’ will be an outstanding night of girl power (and great music!). We look forward to kicking off our 2018-19 season with such a large group of remarkable women.” 

Mydolls, one of Houston’s earliest female-led punk bands (1978-present), and Miears will headline the show, with performances by Lazer Kittenz, Pretty Vacant, Benita and Quinn the Brain. The benefit will also feature a silent auction with packages from local vendors and Houston-based female artists.

The funds raised from the evening will support MU’s theatrical productions, which promote both emerging and recognized women playwrights and directors, as well as a new reading series and outreach programs that the company will launch this season. 
 
The “Women Rock” concert will be held at Rudyard’s British Pub on Saturday, February 10, 2018. Doors open at 7:30 pm and concert will start with a pre-show set at 8:30 pm. Tickets are “pay-what-you-can” with a minimum of $10 per person. Presale tickets are available online at www.mildredsumbrella.com.
