Clubbing for Kids

by Peter Kirn

Boing boing (you know, the site where I'm picking fights with Star Trek TNG veterans — more on that soon) gets the scoop on a disco club for toddlers (4 to 6 year olds). The velvet rope is in full force: the installation is at upscale Paris clothing shop Colette (makes Bergdorf look as un-hip as TJ Maxx), and only 10-12 kids are allowed by appointment only.

If you can make it in, though, this place has what must be the best
dance scene I've ever seen — to say nothing of the DJ dressed as a
panda (see the video on the project site). Older club kids, watch closely: these kids get it. Created by the crew at D-I-R-T-Y.com.

Now, of course, CDM continues to cover installations for grownups, so here's your challenge: make us feel 4. Um, without drugs.

    concerning the fight picking…just when I thought that the music industry has thought of every way to piss off potential customers…they come up with another one……

    Well — will talk more about this soon; I want to give ASCAP a ring and make sure I understand how they came about this licensing system.

    But ASCAP isn't "the music industry." They represent artists. I think part of what we're dealing with is the complexity of the underlying copyright code, and as I pointed out, as an artist you can simply choose to opt out. Given how NON-lucrative signing with a CD label can be, that may be a smart option for some people.
