Introduce Kids to Grateful Dead for Father’s Day


Posted on 26th May, by ParkandShop

Father’s Day is often filled with golf, grilling, and if lucky, naps. But not every dad wants to do engage in the stereotypical homage to fathers. Some eagerly await the day their kids are old enough to introduce them to awesome music and one of the most iconic music venues in the country: First Avenue. To these dads: this is your year!

First Ave’s Mainroom is hosting “The Music of the Grateful Dead for Kids Father’s Day Celebration.” It’s presented by the Rock and Roll Playhouse, which has hosted several MN shows designed to introduce children to some of the best rock and roll that existed.

They’re so serious about it that you can only attend with a child under the age of 18. Children under one year of age attend free. Everyone else pays $17 advance and $19 at the door. It’s at 11 am June 16th. The Park and Shop ramps only charge $6 to park all day, and they’re an easy walk for parents and kids.

According to the First Ave website, this is what to expect of the show:

“Using the songs created by the most iconic musicians in rock history, The Rock and Roll Playhouse offers its core audience of babies and kids games, movement, and stories and an opportunity to rock out. The Rock and Roll Playhouse is an early and often first introduction to a child’s lifelong journey with live music and rock and roll.”
