Rock N Romp

rocknromp.jpgRock-n-Romp is a family friendly concert series showcasing fantastic local-area musicians and bands. Shows are held during the day in a relaxed, kid-safe environment. The volume might be low, but the music is designed for parents and kids both in mind.

Kids enjoy the music, experiment with instruments, dance, or just enjoy the other activities available to them, and parents get the ever-so-rare opportunity to listen to great live music and enjoy a beer with other parents. Romps give parents who miss their social life a chance to get out, enjoy some music that might be new to them, and expose their kids to great bands in a safe, friendly local venue.

The next event is this Saturday at Ruta Maya Cafe, 4:30 pm and features Austin band The Channel, with Austin School of Rock (kids) band, After Math. All ages welcome!

Thanks, Paige!

    We went to the first Rock n’ Romp with the Spankers and it was awesome!

    Oddly enough, The Spankers are playing Ruta Maya the night before (this Friday) and I just ran into a video of theirs for “Tie a Yellow Ribbon on Your SUV” that I’ve never seen before over on Pharyngula hosted on YouTube.

    I didn’t realize that Scott Marcus is playing with them now. Looks like they’ll be back again on 10/20 at Saxon Pub if you can’t make it this week. I’m still bummed that Starfish imploded.

    Nice! I love that they keep playing Ruta Maya. I actually hadn’t listened to their music before the Rock N Romp they played — but now I’m totally a fan.

    The Spankers sunday gospel brunches at La Zona Rosa in the mid-late 90’s were legendary. I’ve got a few photos somewhere. I’ll have to dig them up and post them.

    Yes, ttrentham speaks truthy truth. The older Spankers stuff makes the new (still good) stuff look like absolute crap; it is so freakin’ awesome. Buy the older CDs (Live! and Spanks For The Memories), even if it means you forego nourishment or shelter. It’s that good.
