Kidrockers: Where Mom, Dad & the Kids Listen to Local Indie Bands
Black Friday, Schmiday. Even with the impending recession, we know you dragged/dragging/will drag your kids to the various malls and outlets in the LA area the whole damn weekend. While you may enjoy the thrill of sabotaging your neighbors shopping cart in hopes of snagging whatever Elmo incarnation is hot this year (call me when he can do my taxes and empty the cat box), your poor offspring cannot be placated with more than one Hot Dog on a Stick. Trust us.
So, extend the Thanksgiving spirit to your children and bring them down to The Echo for another amazing Kidrockers bash. For those of you still in the dark, Kidrockers gives parents (and aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents, fairy godmothers, hell - anyone with a little one) the opportunity to mix great bands, kid-friendly comedians, and family togetherness with an awesome venue to radically transform your boring ol' Sunday afternoon.
This Sunday brings The Parson Red Heads(all 153 of them) and The Henry Clay People with hosts Greg Behrendt and Seth Herzog. Bring your cameras, your sense of humor, your thrill for the unexpected (last time the Deadly Syndrome plucked an 8 year old on stage to be a guest vocalist), and your wallet (my kid wears her "All Ages" Kidrockers t-shirt religiously) for an unforgettable afternoon.
