5th Annual Chicks RockFest Scheduled For April 8th & 9th At The Southgate House In Newport, KY

NEW PORT, KY. ( What: 5th Annual Chicks RockFest -
Who: 30 female-oriented bands from around the country
When: Fri. & Sat. April 8th & 9th, 2005
Where: The Southgate House, Newport, KY

The 5th Annual Chicks RockFest rolls into Southgate House this year for two nights of female rock on April 8th and 9th. Last year's CRF in Downtown Cincinnati drew over one thousand people to two different venues over two nights to see over thirty "female-centric" acts on three stages. This year's CRF promises all that and more, including vendors and other surprises, on three stages at the historic Southgate House in Newport, KY.

"The show is about females that are involved with the bands," says Chicks Rock founder Jenny "Jem" Schmidt on her reason for founding CRF. "It's not a novelty. It's not even something that hasn't been done before, like Lillith Fair. Well, this isn't your mama's Lillith Fair. But, what's better than putting a hot chick up there who says, 'Hey, come watch me. I sing. I play guitar'? Ultimately, it's all about having a good time. That's my agenda."

"There isn't a whole lot you remember when you organize a festival like this, but I do remember taking a minute with Rhonda Everitt (pale beneath the blue/rhe) who I knew had just had surgery less than 3 weeks prior. She showed up with a freakin' heart monitor/I.V. looking thing attached to her! I remember I told her she needed to go home, but she marched herself on into the Barrelhouse, propped her leg up onto the keyboard, played out her set and rocked the house! SHE KICKED BUTT LIKE SHE HAD 2 GOOD LEGS!"
