We love HOT WHEELS here at Rock Father HQ. No, they're not just for boys, as my first daughter thinks that those little cars and their Matchbox counterparts are just about the best thing ever. We'll delve into that in a future blog here on The Rock Father, but for now I have a video to show you courtesy of TEAM HOT WHEELS. It's their Guinness World Record-making run at a real-life Double Loop Dare. Yes, it's HOT WHEELS in real-life, and it's fantastic. The jump took place at the 2012 X Games Los Angeles with Greg Tracy and Tanner Foust at the wheels.

For our friends in NYC, Brooklyn is getting another family-friendly music festival as the HIP TOT MUSIC FEST will be taking place on the Second Sunday of every month, beginning July 8th. Sponsored by Plum Organics (my toddler loves their stuff), the fest will take place at Littlefield in the Gowanus section of Brooklyn. Check out the dates and performers below, then hit this link for tickets and more info.

It's still hard to believe that ROCK BAND has been around for five years already. Are you still playing? I'm out of the loop and out of shape, but am really tempted to boot up the XBOX 360 for some pro drums action on ROCK BAND 3. Here's the latest news...

Harmonix today announced that tracks from The All-American Rejects, Mudvayne, and Rise Against are headed to the Rock Band™ Music Store of downloadable content for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and Wii.

KinderAngst - Self-titled (Album Review)

Written by

There isn't a wide range of punk rock available for kids, and unless I'm mistaken, I thought that Chicago's THE BOOGERS were the only game in town. Not anymore as the Kindie Rock world now has another band of merry misfits raising their kid-sized fists in the name of rock N' roll and education. That band is KinderAngst.
