Family-friendly Bad Things?


Summer has arrived in Seattle and last week’s show at the Rogue & Peasant kicked it in with a vengeance! We got a couple more for the summer season and the next one will happen next Saturday, July 7th at The Q Cafe in Magnolia. This is part of a great series of matinees that Artist Home is putting on that brings bands that grown-ups love into a kid-friendly environment.

As all you parents out there know, seeing great live music gets harder and harder once kids come along. It can be painful to see “kid-friendly” bands when you’re a discerning music lover with eclectic tastes. Well, no worries! These shows are for you. They happen on Saturdays between 4 and 7pm so you can rock out with your kids and then get them home in time for a proper bedtime.

Now, I know a lot of you out there have the crazy idea that we aren’t such a family friendly band, but kids love us and we promise to curtail some of our raunchier material and language. Our singer Jimmy the Pickpocket’s 17-month old boy Desmond will be rocking out in the front row with all the other kiddies so you know he’ll have to behave.

Opening the show will be one of our favorite local bands at the moment, Nu Klezmer Army so this is a no-brainer. Even if you don’t have kids you can come out, see great music and then go out for a night on the town. We only have one other show this summer and that’s not until August so come out and enjoy. You can get more information and RSVP here.
