So my sister has started up a cool concert series in Toronto called Rockin’ The Cradle, the last Sunday of every month, at the Tranzac Club in Toronto. They are billing it as an event for people aged 0 to 100. They lower the volume, have activities and a dance space for the kids and book family friendly indie rock acts (and others).
I’ll let my sister explain it from her blog.
I’m just a regular music loving mama who loves being a parent, but misses going to and playing live music, so I decided to organize rock shows for parents that kids can come to and enjoy. These are all age shows that are appropriate for babes in arms, toddlers, children, teenagers, parents, grandparents, etc. etc. The only people who shouldn’t come are those who dislike children (there will be a lot of children in attendance)!
This month’s concert is on February 22 from 1-3 pm at the Tranzac Club (292 Brunswick Avenue) features Bry Webb from the Constantines and a group called Positive Thinking Seminar (at least I think they are a band ). The event is pay as you can and families are encouraged to come out. Apparently the Tranzac also serves a yummy Sunday brunch at that time.
I’ll be booting over there right after Podcamp Toronto wraps up and spending some time with my family listening to some great music.
