The general public will be able to experience a bit of that community at Saturday’s show, when bands and former campers will cover songs by George Michael, Dolly Parton, the Carpenters and, yes, Crazy Town.
“The rules for interpretation are pretty open,” says Jones. “Either it’s a song that’s lyrically bad or offensive in some way and the performer has to change the words, or it’s a song that’s just really bad and they have to find a creative way to make it better. There will definitely be some great performances.”
“Take Back the Mic: Good Covers of Bad Songs” will take place Saturday, October 18 at 7 pm at Aurora, 276 Westminster St, Providence. The cover is $5. To find out more about Girls Rock!, visit girlsrockri.org.
