Girls who rock can’t do it alone.

That’s why 20 bands will raise money for the Willie Mae Rock Camp for Girls, a “School of Rock” for young women, by participating in the 3rd annual Willie Mae-ra-thon at four venues next weekend:

• On Thursday, May 28, the action kicks off at Union Pool in Williamsburg with noise rock band Parts & Labor.

• On Friday, May 29, the action moves to Public Assembly in Williamsburg with a show featuring experimental funk group Burnt Sugar.

• On Saturday, May 30, Brooklyn’s newest venue, Bruar Falls on Grand Street between Driggs Avenue and Roebling Street, will get a chance to show off, thanks to a show featuring art punk upstarts Taigaa and Pterodacty.

• And to prove that not all great music happens in Williamsburg, the final show of the marathon, on Sunday, May 31, will be at the Bell House in Gowanus with Babe the Blue Ox, Antietam (pictured) and the Last Town Chorus.

Show times and costs vary. For venue information, go to or call (212) 777-1323.
