The new season of the children’s entertainment series Ridge Romp kicks off Saturday with The Not-Its!, a Seattle band that introduces kids to rock music.
With the success of their debut album, “We Are The Not-Its!” released June 2009, it’s clear they are on a mission to make kids dance, with up-tempo, power-pop hits families will love. Featuring the vocals of Sarah Shannon (of lauded ‘90s indie-pop band Velocity Girl), The Not-Its! combine crunchy guitars with smooth, four-part harmonies, all nestled within ‘fantastic danceable pop gems about gettin’ fancy, birthday parties, bath time and intergalactic play dates.’”
The show starts at 10:30 a.m. (doors open at 10 a.m. ) in the Phinney Center’s Community Hall (in the lower level of the brick building). Cost is $3 per person (child or adult), babes-in-arms are free. A family season pass is $35 for four people for six shows, October through April. Each show is approximately 45 minutes. All proceeds go back into hiring performers. Check out the full season schedule here.
And if you want to volunteer to take money or help with set up or clean up, you and your family get free admission for about 30 minutes of work.
