Lauryn Hill, MC Lyte, lyricist Jean Grae, French Chilean MC Ana Tijoux, and acclaimed violinist Miri Ben-Ari will be the featured artists at DJ Beverly Bond‘s concert and conversation series ROCK! LIKE A GIRL on Saturday, April 5, 2014.

The first installment, which will be held at The Kennedy Center (2700 F Street, NW) is dedicated to women in hip-hop.

D.C.’s own all-girl Go-Go group Be’la Dona will serve as the official house band with Bev on the 1s and 2s.

Bev says of her series, “…The ROCK! LIKE A GIRL platform presents a unique vehicle for the voices of female artists who’ve led with shear integrity and respect for their craft; despite the difficulties of navigating an especially male dominated arena. …Together these incredible women will make HERstory and show what it really means to ROCK like a girl!”
