Today’s news:

Kid rock! Super Sonic Kindie Music Festival makes waves on Saturday

Brooklyn Daily

For those kids about to rock, we salute you.

Hipster toddlers and their still-cool parents will groove out to children’s music singer Elizabeth Mitchell, Brooklyn’s own Karen K and the Jitterbugs, Jon Samson, and The New Raspberry Bandits at the Super Sonic Kindie Music Festival on Saturday at the Urban Meadow in the Columbia Street Waterfront District.

“We’ve hand-picked bands that in their own unique ways combine witty lyrics and beautiful music without talking down to kids,” said Tonic Kids’ Melissa Caruso-Scott. “Parents and kids can expect to to discover new children’s music they

will fall in love with and to also hear some time tested favorites.”

This year’s lineup is impressive.

Mitchell, a nationally acclaimed musician whose songs have been featured on cartoons and National Public Radio, will be playing songs from her latest album, “Sunny Day.”

And Carroll Garden’s Karen Kalafatas will turn the entire crowd into jitterbugs with her “delightful and funny” songs about milk and picking an outfit for the day.

For four hours, kids big and small alike can rock out to an impressive lineup while enjoying healthy snacks from cook smarter and making crafts with ArtsCetera.

And, of course, there will be face-painting.

The Super Sonic Kindie Music Festival at the Urban Meadow (President Street at Van Brunt Street in the Columbia Street Waterfront District), Sept. 24, 12:30–4:30 pm. Tickets, $15 (kids, $10). For info, visit
