Yo Gabba Gabba! has recently been posting some new videos online from some past episodes, and this one is too good not to share with readers of The Rock Father™. Back on March 9, 2010 (yes, two years ago today), the mighty WEEZER made an appearance on the 'Bugs' episode of Season 3 for a furry performance of a song called All My Friends Are Insects. Check out the video of the performance below, and rock out with the kids. =w=
Indie children’s musician Sukey Molloy has announced that April 24th will see the release of her third CD, I Am Happy! with Sukey Molloy.
I'm not sure how accurate the depiction is, but IFC's PORTLANDIA is a great show, and it's become what I (and many others) think of first when hearing of anything coming out of Portland, Oregon.

As a music and monster aficionado, I'm interested.
Being relatively new to the world of Kindie Rock, I was not familiar with Gustafer Yellowgold until yesterday, and it appears that my daughter and I have some catching up to do. This little guy came to Earth from the Sun and landed in Minnesota. Since 2005, he's been the subject of several multi-media tales, brought to life in hand-drawn music videos from cartoonist/songwriter/performer Morgan Taylor. His fifth DVD/CD package, Gustafer Yellowgold's Year in the Day is set for release on April 3, and after checking out a preview of a song and video called Pancake Smackdown, my daughter's first word was ''More?'' Check out the video below.
It's 55 degrees outside right now, and as the snow melts away, we can't wait for spring and summer. Sure, The Rock Father™ is all about the music, but we're also hardcore gardeners, and that's what makes this so intriguing: There's a band called ORANGE SHERBET that ''praise the delights of eating seasonal, locally grown foods!''
The award-winning Maestro Classics series has announced the release of their ninth album, a retelling of Stravinsky's L’Histoire du Soldat, presented for young audiences as THE SOLIDER'S TALE.

Dr. Konrad Czynski), and is presented with an illustrated, 24-page booklet. The Rock Father™ has more details on this new title after the break.
