Nearly two-dozen female fronted bands took over the Los Angeles’ Bootleg Theater this weekend to kick of the first-ever GIRLSCHOOL Field Day Event.

Founded by singer and multi-instrumentalist Anna Bulbrook (The Bulls, the Airborne Toxic Event), the three-day event showcased female musicians of varying rock genres, appealing to a wide range of both male and female fans.

Dead Sara’s hard rock set gave way to a frenzied mosh pit while Maria Taylor’s subdued songs inspired subtle sways. Fans of the so-called “dreamy grunge-rock” group crammed into the bar stage to witness a stellar guitars-only set from the women of Veruca Salt.

Fans who stuck around late Saturday night were disappointed Kate Nash was a no-show. Come to find out, the punk-rocker had to skip her DJ set due a violent altercation in her neighborhood, with police advising her to stay inside. Bit of a bummer for GIRLSCHOOL, but safety first!
