Kidding Around at Symphony Space


Our first show on this tour begins in New York at Symphony Space for their “Just Kidding” family event series! It is a beautiful building and the people here have been fantastic. We had the pleasure of hanging out with Darren (the Director of Family Programs for SS) a bit yesterday and it was great to get to know him better. He really puts on a wonderful program for families!! To learn more about it, check out their website here:


Epic CD Release Party!!


We maxed out The Vera Project today during our KidQuake! CD Release Party. Over 350 people came out to celebrate with us. A lot of them even participated in a Not-Its! Nation KidQuake! by bringing non-perishable food items to donate to the Ballard Food Bank… ROCK ON Not-Its! Nation! Thank you for using your KID POWER FOR GOOD!


Wrocking at Charles Wright Academy!


We had a great show at the Charles Wright Academy today, proving once again that Tacoma ROCKS! We always have an awesome time when we play in Tacoma… Just take a look at the audience, how can you not have fun with a crowd like this?




Today, Edmonds Center for the Arts presented KIDSTOCK, a day-long family celebration from 10 AM to 4 PM. On the main stage, entertainment included Kindie Rock favorites such as Recess Monkey, Harmonica Pocket and yours truly, The Not-Its!. Also on stage was an award winning juggler Alex Zerbe and the ever- popular Zambini Brothers Puppets.
Look for this super fun event next year!


Romping on the Ridge


It’s been a while since we’ve rocked the PNA’s Ridge Romp, but today’s show was as fun as they come. There was a great crowd of families — kids were in the kid pit, and parents were on the edge with their cameras, filming their kids rocking out! Here is a shot of the crowd doing what The Not-Its! call their “Rock Star Pose” — The PNA hosts many fun family events. You can find out more about them here:


The Not-Its! Love Big Top Rock!


We are so proud to have been a part of something as inspiring as the Big Top Rock series at Teatro ZinZanni.

For the last two years, the ZinZanni Institute for Circus Arts (ZICA) has presented Big Top Rock, a new show concept combining the best in rock-n-roll for kids with circus arts, designed for specifically for kids and their families.

We look forward to the next time we play Big Top Rock and hope to see you there!


A Show of a Different Color…


Well, this is a first for us. For today’s show we had to leave Sarah at home – doctor’s orders! Even though we missed her dearly we still managed to have some fun – The Not-Its! Karaoke! We had a few guest singers join us to help us through the show. A great big THANK YOU! is in order to Lindsay McDonald, Sarah Nordlund (front and center in this photo) and Henry Adamson for your performances today!


The Big Top Rocks!!


We had another epic concert today under the big tent! If you haven’t yet experienced a “Big Top Rock” event at Teatro ZinZanni, you really must put it on your life-to-do list. These people know how to entertain both kids and grown ups alike! There is still time to get tickets for upcoming shows. For more information, check out their website here:


Birthdays in Burien!


Our show at the Burien Library today was F A N T A S T I C! There was a great turnout… Two families combined forces and planned their daughters’ birthday party around the show. They brought in balloons and had activities after we finished playing. Such a cool (and free!) way to celebrate a birthday! Rock on Avery and Clara!!
