KIDROCKERS produces All Ages shows that bring families together to experience some of the most engaging and vital artists in indie music and comedy. Artists perform original (not specifically made for children) songs in a manner that is both authentic and kid-friendly.
It’s hard to imagine mature, self-respecting childless adults wanting — much less needing — to sneak into a kids’ show. But Beth Lorge has met such desperate grown-ups. New York Times January 2013
Erika Spring & Annie Hart (of Au Revoir Simone)
The Brooklyn indie pop group Au Revoir Simone features Heather D'Angelo (vocals/drum machine/keyboard), Erika Forster (vocals/keyboard), and Annie Hart (vocals/keyboard). Borrowing their name from a minor character in the Tim Burton comedy Pee-Wee's Big Adventure, the synth-centric group came together in late 2003 as a casual keyboard club; learning cover songs and making up new ones, sharing their life stories and having fun with sound. They played shows all around Brooklyn and downtown Manhattan in DIY spaces, apartments and bars. In 2005, Au Revoir Simone issued their debut album, Verses of Comfort, Assurance & Salvation. It was self-released in the United States and appeared on the Moshi Moshi label throughout Europe. Additionally, the song "Through the Backyards" was included in the season finale of Grey's Anatomy that spring, boosting the trio's profile. Au Revoir Simone's second album, The Bird of Music, was released one year later and led the way to extensive touring throughout the U.S., Europe and Asia and a European support tour with one of their favorite bands, AIR. The trio's third album, Still Night, Still Light, was produced by Thom Monahan (Vetiver, Devendra Banhardt, Lavender Diamond) and self released in spring of 2009. They supported the album with another year of touring and festival gigs as well as many more movie and television placements and collaborations with local and international fashion designers (Agnes b., Betsey Johnson, Kate Spade). In late 2013, they released their fourth album. Co-produced by the trio and Jorge Elbrecht (Violens, Ariel Pink), Move in Spectrums was issued on legendary producer Richard Gottehrer's label, Instant Records. 2013-14 took the band back to Europe, Japan, southeast Asia, across the U.S. and South America and to their home away from home, Paris, for a magical collaboration with Etienne Daho at the famous Olympia Music Hall.
SKI LODGE was on the list of "12 Acts to See" at CMJ 2013. "Ski Lodge updates early '80s bright, angular, occasionally dream rock, and there's a touch of west Africa in the mix ...." WSJ.
