This is a league of hilarious, insightful women. We tell our stories, make our voices heard, and raise money for local charities. Female StoryTellers was founded in 2012 as a way for women to share their stories and their voices and platform for women of Tucson to express themselves. We work to promote feminism and equality In our community by empowering women. Each month women are invited to share their stories in the form of a 10-15 minute monologue. Our theme changes every month, but our mission remains the same- give women a space to speak and share. In addition to providing this much needed space, we donate money to local organizations that promote women, children, and the arts in order to stay connected and give back to the community that we love. FST! Is incredibly grateful for the warm reception and amazing way the community has embraced us and we couldn’t be happier to be part of Tucson.

WHAT IS IT? Local bands that normally perform original material gather to perform a 20-minute set of songs by another band or artist. Simple enough, right? And best of all, every penny of the proceeds from the event is donated to TAMHA, a local service organization that connects local artists and musicians to health care and health care resources. Of course, that means that no band will receive any compensation for slaving away at practice for a month or two, only to learn a set of songs they'll probably never play again. But look at it this way: It's probably about the most fun you'll ever have doing charity volunteer work. BANDS BEING COVERED: Quincy Jones Foo Fighters Spy Songs Jethro Tull Joni Mitchell Siouxsie and The Banshees The Police The Killers

Grite-Leon (Gree-teh Lay-own) comes from the phrase “demanding a lion to scream” when translated from Spanish. Grite Leon (Gree-teh Lay-own) has a sound as unique as the bands they emulate. Spearheaded by founding members Eric Asturias and Andy Coronado, the band is a labor of love created by the two in early 2006. It would be a fallacy to say they are driven by their passion, it is more like an instinct, within their blood to produce the music they want. They have been described as sounding akin to Sublime, with Coronado lending guitar riffs similar to that of John Frusciante or Omar Rodriguez. Their sound is distinct, Asturias is a true poet, his lyrics reflecting experiences with women, drugs, and life. Many influences include but are not limited to Red Hot Chilli Peppers, The Mars Volta, Deftones, Carlos Santana, and Jimi Hendrix to name a few. Everyone in the band comes from varied musical backgrounds that when blended together creates something unique. Grite-Leon has been best described as a Latin Progressive Rock, however that does not do justice. Grite-Leon is like the theme park of bands. Every song is its own ride and has its own style.
