Uh, you did. As in, the biggest turnout we've ever had.
Minglewood Hall turned out to be a fun venue for us-- lots of room, and a really nice stage for the bands. We had Indie Memphis along for this show. In between bands, they showed some of the best short films from the Chicago International Children's Film Festival, which the kids really loved.
First up was Side Street Steppers. These guys showcased their old-timey folk/roots music to the delight of many kids who had never heard their style before.
Next up was Dandelion and the Raindrops, which is the product of Music for Aardvarks mastermind Joe Murphy. We don't feature "kid music" very often, but when we do, we like to it be cool enough to appeal to adults too. These guys did just that. Lots of booty shakin'.
Finally, we returned to our rock roots with El Dorado and the Ruckus, who brought the house down. To you folks who left early-- you missed quite a show by those guys.
We also had the kind folks from Grace St. Luke's out to lead the kids in a bunch of cool crafts.
And, we had the cool Yolo truck parked outside, handing out free and delicious yogurt.
Thanks once again to the awesome Central BBQ folks. Your delicious 'cue always makes Rock-n-Romp a good place to be. (And happy birthday to barbecue heiress Charlotte, who celebrated her 6th birthday with us at the RnR!) Also thanks to Whole Foods for keeping us stocked with tasty snacks.

Seeya guys on September 24th at the Midsouth Maze. Should be a fun show-- last year we all had a blast there.
