Three female fronted bands play Hear Grand Island

All three bands performing tonight on Hear Grand Island are led by women.

It wasn’t planned that way. It just happened, said T.J. Roe, managing director of a series of summer concerts in downtown Grand Island.

Freakabout, the Lincoln team, hasn’t played Hear Grand Island since 2019.

“We’re excited about the return of Freakabout,” said Roe.

The band’s guitarist is Aaron Galvan from Grand Island.

Freakabout has a new member, and Roe has heard the band bring something extra. That said, the group has always done well at Hear Grand Island.

Freakabout, the band from Lincoln, made it to the top of today’s release of Hear Grand Island. The band includes guitarist Aaron Galvan from Grand Island.

So she hopes for a good crowd.

“I don’t know if we can compete with last week, but we always try,” said Roe, referring to the strong attendance for Rascal Martinez.

Kearney’s Stone the Thrones made his debut on Hear Grand Island last year. But the band members played Railside in other bands.

Maria Rodriguez, the lead singer of Stone the Thrones, is “fantastic,” said Roe.

“If you didn’t catch them last year, you definitely need to be there this time,” he said.

Estrogen Projection, the third group, is from Lincoln.

“Estrogen Projection is our first all-girly punk band we’ve ever had,” said Roe.

The group is relatively new. “So it’s their first time to Hear GI,” he said.

Roe doesn’t think the Estrogen Projection has ever “played such a big scene” before.

“So we’ll see when they fill up,” he said.
