Kids Music Listings this Weekend: July 6, 7, 8

July 6, 2012

Charles, our Music Listings Editor, is really excited about how Still Hip (the resale boutique) has morphed into an event boutique! This weekend Still Hip kicks off their first of many planned music fests at Littlefield (which is becoming THE place for family music in Brooklyn). We look forward to the Ezra Jack Keats family concert every year at Celebrate Brooklyn: this year Sweet Honey will be spinning their sweet songs for families.
