Milkshake Brings All the Kids to the Yard – to Win

Milkshake has been making its way around the blogosphere of late, so I figured it was time to check it out to see what they were all shaking about.

One of those bands you see in the Noggin interstitials, heavy on the guitar riffs and rich with melody, Milkshake offers that rare chance to listen to music with your kids and not clutch your ears. It’s indie rock with a touch of bubblegum pop that makes this shake sweet to swallow.

With music that’s been likened at times to the White Stripes and the Cowboy Junkies, the lyrics are tight and intelligent, the themes kid-like but not dumbed down. Go out to the ballgame with Cal Ripken on Baseball or catch puddle jumping fever with Rainy Day.

Milkshake’s new DVD
, Screen Play, takes kids on a VH1 Behind the Music-type ride with a look at the rockers on stage performing songs from their third album, Play, and music videos that make you yearn for the days when music television still played music.

Want your own copy of the DVD? Check out their site and let your kid pick their favorite song. Leave it in comments for a chance at a DVD or a Milkshake comic book (more than one winner!). Get extra entries by grabbing my badge and/or blogging about this contest and all (remember to leave the link in comments as well).
