ChiIL Mama's super stoked to be sponsoring this season's Beat Kitchen's Concerts for Kids. You can meet ChiIL Mama, Du-Jay and Sagezilla in person at many of the shows and pick up your own free, hot-off-the-presses ChiIL Mama button. Stop by, say hey, and chiIL out.
Some of our favorite kindie bands are playing. Check out ChiIL Mama's interview with Mindy Hester and ChiIL Mama's YouTube Channel and Vimeo Channel featuring numerous kindie favs, including live concert footage and interviews from Beat Kitchen.
We also highly recommend checkin' out The Hamburglars. We were on Chic-A-Go-Go with them last Halloween. Check out their show video HERE. You can see Sagezilla (punk anti-cheerleader) and Sir. Du-Jay (the knight) rockin' out on the right.
This week we should have new Hamburglers LIVE show footage up from the Beat Kitchen kick off earlier this month. We'll also feature an interview with Andy Roo who played last Sunday. We have great live footage from his Beat Kitchen gig, along with a give away of his new kids' CD that comes with crayons for DIY album art! How fun is that?!
There's plenty more to come, so check out ChiIL Out here at Chicago Parent. We'll keep you up to date on the windy kindie music scene, as well as theatre for kids and adults, and fun happenings around the city. ChiIL Mama knows life doesnt' end with birth. So, get out of the house, rock out with your kids, and have some family fun!
