FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Eleventh Annual Tricycle Music Fest Kicks Off October 6
Live Kindie Music at San Francisco Public Library
San Francisco Public Library is rolling on out eleven years of Rock! Play! Learn! with its hit music celebration for children, Tricycle Music Fest. The Library welcomes all families to sing and dance along with us at live performances every weekend in October throughout the City.
Opening the festival is Brooklyn-based band The Pop Ups, sharing their unique rock and roll sound this weekend on Sunday, October 6. Jazzy Ash and the Leaping Lizards bring NOLA to the City by the Bay with music influenced by jazz and the joy of Mardi Gras with two performances in October at the North Beach and Ortega Branches. Bay Area favorites the Alphabet Rockers will drop beats inspiring social justice and youth empowerment at the Excelsior and Richmond Branch Libraries. Lastly, wrapping up the month of October, the Library welcomes Grammy and Emmy-winning group The Lucky Band, playing catchy hits from their newly-nominated Latin Grammy album, Buenos Diaz. The Lucky Band closes our series with a special before-open-hours concert at the Main Library bright and early on Sunday, October 27.
Additionally, Tricycle Music Fest features one very special prize: a tricycle raffle. One lucky concert goer rides off on a new shiny red tricycle at the end of each show.
Tricycle Music Fest is presented jointly by the San Francisco Public Library and San Mateo County Library. San Francisco performances are funded by Friends of the San Francisco Public Library, bringing music, libraries and families together. Release the foot brake on the stroller and boogie on down to the Library to catch a concert with us!
