Kindiependent. From the website, "Kindiependent is a collective of like-minded people who are passionate about cultivating a vibrant kids and family music scene in the Pacific Northwest. Through creative collaborations and community events, our mission is to develop a network of family-friendly artists and organizations that supports cultural innovation."
The "Share the Music Concert" is what looks to be the first of many collaborative events to come. It's also the release show for Recess Monkey's latest CD, The Final Funktier! Awesome! I just can't tell you how exciting this is for me! I love the fact that my family has easy access to so many great kindie bands and that they are actually collaborating and working together to share all their great music with Pacific Northwest families. The festival is going to be four back-to-back sets with four out of the five bands: Recess Monkey, Caspar Babypants, The Not-It's!, and Johnny Bregar. The concert is FREE! For more information, check out the new Kindiependent website. You can also get more information about other upcoming group events and you'll also find links for each of the five bands.
I'm hoping that once the word gets out, even more kids music bands located in the Pacific Northwest will join ranks with these guys. I can see Harmonica Pocket and Captain Bogg and Salty jumping on the bandwagon. Maybe this means that there will be a giant kindie music fest coming our way in the very near future? We can only hope. And of course, support these guys like crazy!!! See you there!
Update: Check it out! Harmonica Pocket has joined Kindiependent too! Told you they would!
