Want to rock out with your kids this SXSW while supporting a great cause? MyMusicRx has partnered with FADER FORT for the 3rd Annual YOU WHO Rock Show for Kids, which will take place on Thursday, March 19th from 10am until noon. On the lineup this year are The Zombies (acoustic) featuring Colin Blunstone and Rod Argent, The Heartless “Bathtubs”, Hey Marseilles, Stooges Brass Band, The Reverend Peyton’s Big “Dang” Band, Charlotte Brimner, Wild Ones, and Koo Koo Kanga Roo, with additional artists to be announced.
YOU WHO was created by Chris Funk of The Decemberists and his wife, Seann McKeel and includes an art activity zone for kids, a variety show format with sing-a-longs, interactive dance get-downs, original songs and more. To interest the budding young music listeners (and to satisfy the tastes of seasoned rockers who maybe don’t get out as much fora show as they did before they were parents), YOU WHO shows include a variety of genres. Featured bands play a set from their catalogue that they think kids will like, not necessarily “kid’s music”.
All proceeds from the event will help fund MyMusicRx’s bedside and online programs that deliver the healing power of music to kids facing cancer and other serious illnesses, whenever and wherever they need it most. YOU WHO shows are videotaped and made available to seriously ill kids and teens via the MyMusicRx.org website. To learn more about the organization, you can read our Q&A with Regina Ellis, the founder of MyMusicRx and The Children’s Cancer Assocation, here.
