Austin Kiddie Limits

Overlooked by a majority of festival-goers each year, the Austin Kiddie Limits tent truly is a diamond in the rough for those in the family way. Many acts play two sets over the course of the weekend, so you'll have multiple chances to catch the primo stuff. Local quirk rockers the Telephone Company are a clean marriage of Flight of the Conchords and Tommy. Milkshake is the brainchild of former Love Riot singer Lisa Mathews and guitarist Mikel Gehl; any parent whose child has watched Noggin or Jack's Big Music Show has likely seen a few videos by the group, which self-released its fourth CD, Great Day. Lunch Money bops pop inspired by singer Molly Ledford's colorful childhood memories, including first pets, roller coasters, and pastries. Mr. Leebot is local singer-guitarist Lee Davila, a frequent performer at Ruta Maya. He just released Robot Dance, full of clever dance-inspiring ditties for kiddies with ants-in-the-pants. Parents whose TVs are perpetually tuned to the Disney Channel will recognize Ralph's World, fronted by nonthreatening longhair Ralph Covert, who makes educational indie-rock about rhyming circuses. Make time to check out Quinn Sullivan, the 10-year-old blues guitar prodigy from Boston, and Secret Agent 23 Skidoo, specializing in kid-safe hip-hop.
