Joe's Live Brings Kids Concerts to Rosemont...

Earlier this year, the folks behind Joe's Pub on Weed St in Chicago planted a flag in the suburbs by opening Joe's Live at the MB Financial Park in Rosemont, Illinois. An immediate hit with a mix of pop, country and party bands, this Fall finds the venue entering completely new territory, albeit a realm that I personally have been covering here on the site for the past six years: the Kindie Scene. Kids Shows at Joe's will take place on select Saturday mornings at 11am, beginning September 24th with an appearance by Randy Kaplan. Future dates have been booked into December with what should be some familiar names to readers of THE ROCK FATHER Magazine, including Poochamungus and Miss Jamie From the Farm. Check out the initial lineup below...

With Comic-Con International (SDCC) getting underway in San Diego this week, families need a proper soundtrack filled with fresh jams. Just-released is INFINITY PLUS ONE, the latest album from Kindie superstar SECRET AGENT 23 SKIDOO - a record that brims with geektastic glory, covering subjects like Multiverses and Monsters. One song posits the question of whether the listener is a superhero or a supervillain? Personally, I'm probably a bit of both, but my victory laugh does indicate some nefarious tendencies. Want to explore your own super-aspirations? Skidoo just released the music video for "Secret Superhero," and it's Rock Father-approved! Check it out...

While the weather has been slow to change here in Northern Illinois, reality (and the calendar) tells us that summer is almost here. With the arrival of summer comes planning for those wonderful road trips - whether short weekend runs, or The Great American Road Trip to far-off locales. As always, you're gonna need a soundtrack, and following tradition, my friends at Sugar Mountain PR have assembled a Family Music Road Trip Playlist packed with tracks from 12 of their artists - available as a FREE DOWNLOAD from May 18-25, 2016, after which it will revert to streaming-only. Check out the full collection in the Soundcloud player below, right here on THE ROCK FATHER Magazine!

It's President's Day, and aside from being a day off school, possibly work, and a time to get great, limited-time savings on electronics, furniture and automobile purchases, it's also a day to remember the heritage of our Nation - The United States of America. One of my favorite cities has long-been Washington, D.C., and for their forthcoming album, ARE YOU LISTENING? Seattle kindie rockers, THE NOT-ITS! wrote a song about it. For this week only, you can grab a FREE DOWNLOAD of "Washington D.C." from the band's Soundcloud page. Stream it below...

Last October, I introduced you to SHARKY SHARKY, a guitar-heavy Kindie (perhaps, Kindie Metal) band out of Aberdeen, Scotland. This family-friendly offshoot of UK Power Metallers, ASCENSION is back on the attack, presenting their first-ever music video... the appropriately-titled "Bring the Rock!" I approve of this mission, and that's why I'm sharing their new video with you today. See it, and learn more of the legend of SHARKY SHARKY below!

Watch & Listen: THE NOT-ITS! "Dance With Me"

Seattle's THE NOT-ITS! have long-been one of our favorite kindie rock bands here at Rock Father HQ, and as part of The Kindiependent Collective alongside CASPAR BABYPANTS, RECESS MONKEY, THE BOARD OF EDUCATION, THE HARMONICA POCKET and others, THE NOT-ITS! have been leading the charge for legit family-friendly rock. On February 19th, the band will release their sixth full-length album, with ARE YOU LISTENING? hitting the streets with 10 all-new jams. This week, the first music video from the album has arrived, a hand-animated piece by Chris Looney called "Dance With Me." Check it out...
