Welcome Austin Chronicle Readers and Westwood High Alums

If you stopped by after (or while) reading this week's Austin Chronicle story on the Rockabye Baby! series, welcome. While I don't have a review of a CD from the series (though I've got about a dozen sitting around here awaiting a review of some sort), there's lots of other kids music info here. Dan Zanes, the Jellydots, Asylum Street Spankers -- they're all here, just search up there at the right or follow the links on the left.

If you live in Austin (and if you read the Chronicle, you probably do, natch) and you're not currently debating whether to see the White Stripes or the Arcade Fire on Saturday, September 15th at the Austin City Limits Festival, there will be a great kids and family music show at Ruta Maya starting at 6 PM with Laura Freeman, the Telephone Company, Joe McDermott and, all the way from Brooklyn, the Deedle Deedle Dees. Tickets are just $5, infants are free. The show is sponsored by myself and Bill Childs, who hosts a kids and family radio show at Spare the Rock, Spoil the Child. It'll be a great time.

And in the "small world" portion of the post, I, like Valerie Aiello, who came up with the idea for the Rockabye Baby! series, also attended Westwood High. But, uh, before her time.
