After taking a year off, the One More Girl on a Stage music festival returns starting tonight, bigger and better than ever. Founded by local musician Kelly Thomas (Kelly Thomas and the Fabulous Pickups, The Tammy Whynots), One More Girl (OMG) is striving to raise $10,000 for the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk. 

Instead of hosting the festival at one venue, this year’s One More Girl benefit has expanded to six local venues in two cities over three nights. The lineup for One More Girl showcases female solo artists and bands with a female presence (mostly) from the Greater Cincinnati area. Many of them also happen to be some of the best acts in the region, playing a range of styles that includes everything from Hard Rock and Pop Rock to Bluegrass, Folk and many other variations on the Americana theme.

Below are the lineups, links to venues and performers and a few samples from the some of the acts.

One More Girl on a Stage kicks off tonight in Over-the-Rhine, with artists featured at four venues. There are no cover charges at any of the venues.
