Girl Fest 2017

Girl Fest 2017 is proud to return to Lola's Room at the Crystal Ballroom for their 3rd annual event. This one day, festival-style event was founded in 2013 as a way to celebrate the talented, female artists currently making noise in the Northwest. Girl Fest 2017 will be hosted by Blossom, and will include performances by Coco Columbia, Karma Rivera, Neka & Kahlo, Haley Heyndrickx, Courtney Noe and students from My Voice Music's Student Mentorship Program. With a festival-style lineup, Girl Fest 2017 is excited to feature a wild array of genres; everything from hip hop, to alternative, singer songwriter, and pop infused modern jazz. The 2017 event is sponsored by XRAY.fm and Vortex Music Magazine.
   

Coco Columbia

Coco Columbia

Music school dropout, Coco Columbia, burst onto the Portland music scene in 2014. Her music fuses infectious indie-pop melodies, off-kilter rhythmic feels, dreamy-eyed electro-soul soundscapes and jazzy harmony to create her own brand of bumpin' space-age future-pop. Coco has shared the stage with bands such as Hiatus Kaiyote, Goapele, Robert Glasper and Knower.

Karma Rivera

Karma Rivera

Freshman to the NW hip hop scene, Karma Rivera has already made quite a name for herself. Since performing as headliner of November's "The Thesis" at Kelly's Olympian, Rivera has been making moves. She's ready to slay on the Girl Fest stage in January, with aggressive hip hop tracks and a style truly all her own.

Neka + Kahlo

Neka + Kahlo

Veterans of Girl Fest 2014, Neka & Kahlo craft vibey music out of a red brick apartment in North Portland. Rather than pushing a limiting trend or sub-genre, the duo serve as an intersection - trafficking in multiple styles and sounds - thereby dispensing with the need for additional labels. What you hear is the expression of their unique experience as humans who refuse to conform to any one identity alone.

Haley Heynderickx

Haley Heynderickx

The voice of Portland artist, Haley Heynderickx (pronounced Hendricks), is distinctly unique, with a sweet power and beauty that makes her music almost familiar to the ear. Her lyricism is raw and true. Reminiscent of the styles of Joni Mitchell, Joanna Newsom and Jessica Pratt, Heynderickx is not one to miss. 

Courtney Noe

Courtney Noe

"Courtney Noe, Grammy's 2017" is written in red lipstick on her bathroom mirror. "I literally envision myself rising out of the stage in Madison Square Garden before I go to sleep." Courtney's sound embraces the soul of Motown with the additive character of pop. Big band horns, orchestra strings and piano are heard throughout her music; the lyrics dripping with sass. 

My Voice Music

My Voice Music is a nonprofit organization based in Portland, Oregon that engages youth in music and performance in order to promote self-esteem, social skills and emotional expression. MVM's student band opened Girl Fest in 2016, and we are excited to welcome these extraordinarily talented girls back to our stage for the 2017 event! 

About Lola's Room

An oasis below the Crystal

The little sister of the historic Crystal Ballroom, Lola's Room is located on the second floor, directly below the Crystal. If you're a fan of DJ'd dance events, raging local rock showcases or intimate seated performances, then take a moment and bookmark this page.

The navigation menu at left is your roadmap to Lola's Room and the other offerings at the corner of 14th & Burnside. Check out what's coming up on the Events Calendar, let us host your next party or simply investigate our brewery, artwork and history.

A night at Lola's Room should always include a stop by Ringlers Pub or Ringlers Annex, where the vibe will fit your mood -- great pub fare, handcrafted beverages, engaging conversation, a good pool game, a rowdy party or a groovy DJ in a dimmed setting.

Never stop exploring! This website is a continual work in progress, and will develop over time. Watch for photo tours, sound samples from upcoming acts and much more. Meanwhile, be our guest, wander and enjoy!
