Weekend Watch: Recess Monkey at Jammin' Java

Filed Under:

Seattle kids' band Recess Monkey (brilliantly named) will perform at Jammin' Java in Vienna this weekend. Tix are still available for the 11 a.m. Sunday show - and can be purchased online (or by calling 703.255.1566, ext. 8).

These guys are the coolest schoolteachers-you-never-had, whose band has produced a handful of CDs and is embarking on a first national tour. Check out Recess Monkey's MySpace page to sample their sound.

UPDATE: I took Ava to the show, and it was a good one! Fun, smart, and not too precious. My daughter has developed a small crush on the drummer (whom she insists on calling "Ringo," as if all drummers we like must share the same name). Highly recommend buying their music and catching them the next time they come through DC.
