If you are under age 15, and you like to rock, Lacey in Tune and Timberland Regional Library’s Summer Reading program has you covered. The Not-Its, a Northwest “Kindie Rock” quintet, is composed of Sub Pop alumni and radical musicians who create kid-friendly harmonies infused with punk sensibility and rocking beats. Are You Listening, their sixth studio album, includes ten songs that comment in a kid-friendly way on politics, science, hygiene, espionage and veggies.
The Not-Its are composed of Sarah Shannon (former singer Sub Pop band Velocity Girl), Danny Adamson (rhythm guitar), Tom Baisden (lead guitar), Jennie Helman (bass player) and Michael Welke (former drummer of Harvey Danger). The musicians are parents as well – among them, they have ten children, ranging in age from 5-13.
