Kindie rock band Recess Monkey headed to Carrboro

Posted June 28, 2012

Over the next few weeks, you're going to hear me talk a lot about kindie rock star Justin Roberts' concert at the N.C. Museum of Art. It's July 21. Go Ask Mom is the event's activity sponsor.

But another truly great group is headed to the Triangle that day too. Seattle-based band Recess Monkey will play The ArtsCenter in Carrboro at 11 a.m., July 21.

This high-energy band made up of three elementary school teachers is known for its incredibly catchy songs (I seriously dare you to not spell the word sleepover this way - S-L-Double E-P-Over - after a listen to their song of the same name. Or repeat, as they do, "I saw a monster truck" from their song on the giant trucks when you see one pass by on the road).

You may have heard tell of Recess Monkey in Time magazine, People and USA Today or heard them on SiriusXM's Kids Place Live. I highly recommend this band and concert. My kids and I have been fans for years. And it pains me to know that I'm probably going to have to miss their North Carolina debut as I prepare for the equally awesome Justin Roberts concert later that day. (I'm still working out my schedule, though.).

To learn more about Recess Monkey, watch some of their videos on YouTube and check out their website.

Tickets are $9 for adults, $7 for kids and free for kids age 2 and under. A family four pack is $28. Click here for details on the show, which is about an hour long, and to buy tickets. It's best for preschoolers to elementary school aged kids.
