Ah, yes. I was wondering when the Austin Kiddie Limits stuff would start showing up. As far as a children’s entertainer goes, Secret Agent 23 Skidoo isn’t bad at all. He touts his music as “hip hop for kids with the sound that’s all grown-up” and, really, he’s not far off. If you’ll allow that the rhymes are gonna be cute and uplifting, “Gotta Be Me” is actually a pretty fresh song. “Luck” and “The Last Dragon” aren’t as catchy but, you know, I’m glad somebody is tapping this market.
Will I bother, though? Admittedly, it wouldn’t be the first time I trekked over to the Kiddie Limits stage. I made sure to see what Ben Kweller was up to over there a couple of years ago. If the timetables are permissive, I could see myself catching a song or two. I bet the kiddie breakdancing floor (a real thing) will be going nuts.
THE VERDICT: I wouldn’t say I’m “looking forward to it” or anything but, yeah, we’ll see.
