Right now, with writers striking and award shows canceling, we’re in need of some good entertaining. Thank goodness for Princess Katie & Racer Steve stepping in to save the day by pre-releasing Fast & Feisty, a fast (and feisty) tribute to all that’s great about kids music.
The album features ten songs and four skits of pure musical goodness. Songs like Holidays swing, Sneakers rocks, The Pillow cha cha chas, while Go Go Go! uh, goes. And all the while, lead singer Princess Katie (nee Kathleen O’Sullivan) sings her big heart out with her perfected Natalie Merchant sound sprinkled with swirlies of Diana Krall, Edie Brickell and The Sundays. Yeah, that’s right. I said The Sundays.
Don’t let the cartoon character concept scare you. This is a seriously great band. Plus, I hear they are fantastic live performers. Fantastic live performers who are currently allowed to perform without crossing a picket line. -Laura
This weekend, the globes may not be golden, but the royalty’s a rockin’. If you’re in NY, you can check them out live this Saturday. Get more info/buy tickets here or check here to see if the tour is coming to your area. A Princess Katie live show is absolutely a must-do with kids. Who can say no to great music, free tattoos and a bubble machine?
