2 hot family-music bands coming: The Not-Its and Recess Monkey

Got fans (young or not-quite-that-young) of The Not-Its and/or Recess Monkey in the house? 2 events ahead:

We recorded The Not-Its last year in The Junction – and this weekend, they’ll be back in West Seattle, in The Triangle. You can see them at the grand opening for Bright Horizons-West Seattle, the new child-care center at Link (which along with Bright Horizons is a WSB sponsor), along 38th between Fauntleroy and Alaska. The open-house event is 10 am-1 pm, with The Not-Its scheduled to perform at noon.

Then one week later – WestSide Baby kicks off this year’s Stuff-the-Bus diaper drive – which has expanded to “50 Drives in 50 Days for 50,000 Diapers” – with a benefit concert by Recess Monkey at the WS Baby donation facility, 10027 14th SW in White Center, 1 pm Saturday, June 25th. Bring diapers or money to donate, and you’re in.

They’re also recruiting people/groups to run diaper drives RIGHT NOW – not just for this year’s Stuff the Bus event (which will be on July 24th at Viking Bank in The Junction), but ASAP, because if they gather 50,000 diapers, they get a 2-for-1 match from Huggies, which means 100,000 more. E-mail shana@westsidebaby.org to talk about being a Diaper Driver. And bring what you can to the Recess Monkey concert on June 25th!

    The Not-Its are frickin awesome! I saw them in Arpil at the Mount Baker Community Club and the show was fantastic! Their cute little tutu wearing groupies are a riot. I hate to admit it, but I have found myself listening to the CD here and there in the car even without the baby…shhh.

    Not quite West Seattle, but The Not-Its are playing a FREE show with another great family band Lunch Money at Freeway Park across from Town Hall this coming Sunday, June 19 (Father’s Day). Town Hall event link
