A teen rock band from the western suburbs will battle four other women-led rock bands this weekend in Joliet.

Bloody Mary bandmates Rickee Divine, 16, of Carol Stream, Kat Cannons, 17, of Downers Grove and Ana Apollo, 17 and Hollie Wood, 14, both of Elmhurst, released their first CD, "Coming of Age," last year with Dark Star Records and the Sony label.

MoJoe's in Joliet will host part of Reverbnation's "Women in Rock" Battle of the Bands on Saturday. Bloody Mary will battle for the opportunity to open the Chicago stop of Revolver Magazine's Hottest Chicks in Hard Rock Tour on March 1 at MoJoe's.

The March 1 show will feature Sick Puppies, Lacuna Coil, Eyes to Kill and Cilver.

Bloody Mary has been playing around Chicago and the Midwest since 2010, playing original music and covers. Bloody Mary recently appeared on The Mancow Show. They are also working on an EP scheduled for release later this year.

Tickets for Saturday's battle of the bands are $10. Visit www.gobloodymary.com for more information.
