The second summer session of Girls Rock Dallas starts July 15, and during that week, girls ages 8 to 17 learn instruments, form a band, write a song and play a showcase. They’re also offered classes on body image, women in rock history and team building, a truly immersive experience. As they did last summer, GRD is throwing a pool party at the Fraternal Order of Eagles (8500 Arturo St.) on Saturday as a way to draw support to the cause and get like-minded folks in a summer mood. Starting at 4 p.m.Saturday, there will be performances from 5050 Blue, Under Rage and Red Liquorish, as well as water balloons, volleyball, food and Jell-O shots. All ages welcome, and it costs $7 to swim. Visit girlsrockdallas.org for more info.
