WEEKEND PICK: Girl Authority CD Launch Concert!

My pick for the start of the weekend is a CD release concert by Girl Authority ( Friday night, June 1 at 7 at Lincoln-Sudbury Regional High in Sudbury. Tickets were selling very fast for this concert, benefiting The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. The concert celebrates the official release of the group's second CD Road Trip Tickets are $12 at the door and $10 in advance. Parking is free.

If Friday's concert sells out before you can get tickets, the girls are performing Sunday, June 3 at the Striar Jewish Community Center in Stoughton at 2:30 p.m. and will sign autographs after the show. Tickets are $10 for non-members.

*** And if you can't get tickets to either show, take heart, the girls have several shows planned throughout the summer ( to promote their CD. And on Sept. 1 the tween-teen group will make its national television debut on CBS' The Saturday Early Show.

Okay, for moms & dads unfamiliar with Girl Authority - it is a LOCAL singing group of nine girls (ages 10-15) each with an individual "identity" that ties in with their personalities: Tarr (Rock-n-Roll Girl), Alex (Fashion Girl), Jacqueline (All-Star Girl), Carly (Glamour Girl), Jess (Boho Girl), Gina (Urban Girl), Crystal (Country Girl), Kate (Party Girl) and ZoĆ« (Preppy Girl). They go to school, are Girl Scouts, cheerlead, play sports, play instruments, have fun sleepover parties and… just happen to make hit records in their spare time (more than 100,000 and counting of their CDs, filled with songs us parents grew up with & listen to now like the Go-Go's Vacation, Walking on Sunshine, We are Family, Christina Aguilera's Beautiful, Gwen's Hollaback Girl, etc...)

Earlier this month the group signed a deal with PorchLight Entertainment which has partnered with Rounder Records (the group’s label) to co-develop TV series, specials, Web site and direct-to-video programming, merchandising, and an original book series for the tween-targeted singing group sensation.
