Price: Free to kids/$5 donation parents
The Memphis Rock-n-Romp breaks new ground this week with a rare winter edition featuring a high-profile headliner. The local group, which sponsors kid-friendly weekend afternoon live concerts for parents and tots, will inhabit the Center for Southern Folklore for its next event, which will be headlined by Brooklyn’s Gustafer Yellowgold (pictured). The band, whose live show mixes original songs and original artwork while telling the story of a friendly sun creature who settles on earth, is both the first national touring act booked at Rock-n-Romp and the most kid-oriented band to play the series. Gustafer Yellowgold was named their city’s “best kid’s performer” by New York magazine in 2008 and has been described by The New York Times as “a cross between Yellow Submarine and Dr. Seuss.” Also on the bill this weekend is Kindergarten Circus, a teen band from Murfreesboro, and Memphis’ own Yazoo Shakes. The Center City Commission is sponsoring this edition of Rock-n-Romp. It takes place at the Center for Southern Folklore (119 S. Main) from 2 to 5 p.m. Saturday, January 16th. Kids get in free, with a $5 suggested donation for adults, who must be accompanied by a child to enter. See for more info. — Chris Herrington
