    Recess Monkey Plays For World Dignitary, Screaming 6-Year-Olds

    RecessMonkeyHands.jpgYou know, when Recess Monkey recorded "I Went to the Zoo (w/the Dalai Lama)" on their debut CD, Welcome to Monkey Town, I don't think they were engaging in wish fulfillment.

    But the Dalai Lama is visiting Seattle in April as part of the Seeds of Compassion event and on April 12, the band is essentially going to be the Dalai Lama's opening act, a sweet gig if there ever was one. (Because, hey, nobody going to see the Dalai Lama is going to boo them for not playing "Stairway to Heaven.")

    And for those of you going to Recess Monkey's shows this weekend and a couple weeks from now as part of the recording for their upcoming July album Tabby Road or if you're just curious about the new album, click ahead, why don't you, and see the tracklisting...
    01 birthday bite
    02 pedal power
    03 sleepover
    04 the sandbox song
    05 kitty sister
    06 dr. wiggle
    07 kc in the clouds
    08 under my bed
    09 green monster
    10 my yeti's so cool
    11 robin the sugar goblin
    12 messy nessy
    13 boogie monster
    14 mummy don't allow
    15 little dragon
    16 monster truck
    17 wolfman

    Tracks 9 through 16 are a monster medley a la the Beatles' Abbey Road, natch. And in the end...

    I just got word that I was able to get 4 tickets to see the Dalai Lama and Recess Monkey on April 12th. Hurray! I'm thrilled for our homeboys--what an honor--and thrilled that my girls get to see His Holiness.
