Friday, March 4

Singer/songwriters Claire Stuczynski, Optimistic Apocalypse, and the bad-ass punk-rock lady Brit Soule, of Dysmorphia don’t bite on that whole “you’re really good for a girl” thing: They just are really good.

They’re some of the Erie area women who rock – not always gently, not always slowly, but always truly. And rock they will on Friday, March 4, when the Kings Rook Club presents Chickstock IV.

Chickstock has become an annual event that puts the spotlight on stalwart and talented female musicians from around the region.

It’s become an annual event that puts the spotlight on stalwart and talented female musicians from around the region, with past years’ lineups also featuring Stuczynski and other artists including Brooke Surgener and Whitney Wright.

Mind you, it’s not like any of the women on Chickstock’s past or current lineups really need too much help making themselves heard: They all have talents and voices that ring out loud and clear.

If you’ve not heard them for yourself, now’s the time to check them out. – Ryan Smith
