Music lovers flocked to Pearl Street Warehouse recently as Project Hera presented its Women Who Rock: A Tribute to the ’90s music festival. Thirty-one female artists from the DC area contributed their talents to the event which raised funds for Project Hera, a nonprofit organization aimed at promoting, celebrating, and empowering women and girls in music.
Project Hera is an endeavor born from a deep passion of women in music. Headed by DC music scene veteran Cathy DiToro (The Legwarmers, Party Like It’s, and So Fetch), the non-profit group dedicates itself to building and strengthening the local music community, while providing a safe and encouraging outlet for women and young girls.
At Pearl Street Warehouse on Sunday, Dec. 9, Project Hera will present Women Who Rock: A Tribute to the ‘90s with 30 local female artists.
