KidRockers


I think this is such a great idea...KiDROCKERS (in their own words) is a concert series that brings some of the most engaging and vital artists in indie music and comedy to preform for kids and their parents. It's an all ages show and allows for parents to expose their children to some great music they would otherwise miss out on. This is not kiddie music in the Wiggles sense, but rather exciting, energetic music that both children and parents can appreciate.

In part I think it's for the kids--to help expose them to some great music, but really I think it's for the parents who used to enjoy going to shows but since having children don't get out as much. From what I can tell these shows are currently held in NYC--so if you're in the area check it out. Some of the bands who have preformed include Rogue Wave, Palmomar, Harlem Shakes, Los Campesinos, Locksley, Ra Ra Riot, and Wakey!Wakey! to name a few....admittedly I haven't heard of most of these bands...so what better way to discover new music? I think it's a play date.
