The Pop Ups to provide family fun at Franklin Theatre
Brooklyn-based musical duo, The Pop Ups, will play the historic Franklin Theatre Saturday, June 29. The Pop Ups members Jason Rabinowitz and Jacob Stein received a Grammy nomination and a 2012 Parent’s Choice Award for their second album, Radio Jungle. What a press release described as a “wildly imaginative album” debuted in April and has since received praise from the Fids and Kamily Awards, held the No. 1 Single on SiriusXM’s “Kids Place Live” radio show, and others alike.
The Pop Up’s first release, Outside Voices, debuted in 2010 and laid the groundwork for Radio Jungle, which is an even more polished and approachable collection that displays the duos’ youthful spirit. Songs such as “Elephant” and “Math Rock” display the teachability of their music. “Time Out New York” named them one of 2012’s Best 15 Bands for kids.
The first of two shows will be at 9:30 a.m., followed by an 11a.m. performance. Admission is $10 and free for children under the age of 2. Tickets for The Pop Ups are on public sale now. They can be purchased at www.franklintheatre.com or 615-538-2076.
