Calling All Hipsters-in-Training

On Saturday, Memphis Rock-n-Romp, an afternoon rock-and-roll show for kiddies and their parents — is opening its new season.

The shows, held in different backyards in Midtown, are a way of introducing kids to music of a non-juvenile variety, i.e. music parents can bear. The music is kept at an ear-friendly volume, and kids will be provided with a snack, while parents can enjoy a beer.

Saturday's show, from 2 to 5 p.m. will feature music from DJ Colin Butler, the River City Tanlines, and the Vending Machine. Admission is $5.

Other show dates are June 9th, July 21st, September 8th, and October 27th.
