+ About the Performance
This program was recorded 01/23/2016 at Symphony Space.

With an out-of-this-world sound evoking both the Go-Go's and 90s power-punk, Seattle's The Not-Its! mix crunchy guitars and smooth, four-part harmonies, for a show full of perfectly crafted pop gems about everyday kid stuff from the first day of school to taking a bath.

For over half-a-dozen years, The Not-Its! have rocked kids and families with their up-tempo albums and live concerts that give children their first "rock show" experience. This Seattle kindie rock quintet will have children and their parents on their feet and raising their hands for more from the moment they hit the dance floor! The show will have all the great Not-Its! songs the kids know and love, plus brand new songs from their forthcoming album, Are You Listening?

They are Sarah Shannon (voice), Danny Adamson (rhythm guitar), Tom Baisden (lead guitar), Jennie Helman (bass), and Michael Welke (former drummer of Harvey Danger). As parents, they add 10 children to the crowd, ranging in ages from 3-11. 

So grab your pink & black tutus and skinny ties and join The Not-Its! Nation!
