Charlie Faye & The Fanimals bring retro sounds to modern themes for kids and their families. The career musician and single mom was inspired by her and her daughter’s shared love of soul and pop music from the 60s. “So much of the music my daughter loves is stuff I’ve loved my whole life too," says Faye. "Old Motown hits, 60s soul and pop music… just songs with great grooves and great hooks.” So Faye began writing songs in that style with her daughter in mind.
Austin's Parker Woodland creates cathartic indie rock anthems for all ages (and the teenager in all of us). Families may remember the trio, led by justice activist and longtime Girls Rock Austin community member Erin Walter, from the SXSW "Spare the Rock" show in 2022 and KUTX Rock the Park in 2023. Parker Woodland's first full-length album, following up on beloved EP "The World's On Fire (and We Still Fall in Love)," is due out in 2024.
Austin, TX — If you're the parent of a young child, you're always looking for something fun to do with your kids on a weekend morning. Well, if you're in Austin, look no further - here comes The Breakfast Boogie, a live concert series for kids and parents, under the shady trees of the Far Out Lounge in South Austin.
Presented in partnership with KUTX and Spare the Rock, Spoil the Child, the series features well-loved acts including Saul Paul, Charlie Faye & The Fanimals, Uncle Jumbo, and Strawbitty Yops, all at the family-friendly time of 10am.
The Breakfast Boogie was originally conceptualized by Charlie Faye and Cindy Haws, both with family music projects of their own. This series is brought to fruition through partnership with KUTX and Spare the Rock, Spoil the Child. Faye, who has a history in the music community as an artist and an organizer, entered into the children's music world when she had a child of her own. Cindy Haws has spent years as professional musician, educator and a children's performer, has a good take on what works for kids and parents.
The series aims to curate a diverse lineup of music that expands and educates, creates community, and provides rich musical experiences that will embed the love of music in all who attend.
Enjoy an adult beverage or food from one of the food trucks in the colorful eclectic atmosphere of the Far Out Lounge, as kids play and experience live music in one of Austin's best venues.
