The Jewish Museum is presenting The Pop Ups - Radio Jungle, a concert for families on Sunday, February 3 at 2:00 pm. Concert attendees will enjoy a musical romp set in an imaginary world of mermaids, treasure maps, gigantic crayons and glowing constellations brought to life through cardboard props, hand-painted sets, and a colorful cast of original puppets. Featured songs are from The Pop Ups' new album, Radio Jungle, nominated for a 2013 GRAMMY Award for Best Children's Album. This program is recommended for children ages 2 to 7.
Tickets are $18 per adult; $13 per child; $15 adult Jewish Museum family level member; and $11 child Jewish Museum family level member. Adults are asked to accompany their children. For further information regarding family programs at The Jewish Museum, the public may call 212.423.3337. Program tickets can be purchased online at www.thejewishmuseum.org.
The Pop Ups are veteran kids' rockers Jacob Stein (the creator and driving force behind Tribeca's Bim Bom Musicfest class) and Jason Rabinowitz (auteur of indie-pop sensation The Bloodsugars, and co-writer/producer of 3 Little Maestros albums). The Wall Street Journal says The Pop Ups "reflect the creativity percolating on the independent children's music scene." The Pop Ups' first CD, Outside Voices, was named one of the best kids' albums of 2010 by Time Out New York Kids. Radio Jungleassimilates pop idioms into something new and altogether unique, featuring polished, sonically cohesive songs ranging from where "Bananas" come from, to the artistic potential presented by a "Box of Crayons." The album features Shawana Kemp (Shine & the Moonbeams) and psych-rock pioneer Peter Stampfel (The Fugs and Holy Modal Rounders). The Pop Ups perform regularly at New York City venues, tour regionally, and are about to embark on their second national tour with Yo Gabba Gabba Live.
