SATURDAY, February 21
The alter ego of The Apples in Stereo (remember the song “Energy”?)front man Robert Schneider, is an inventor of musical mayhem with an inspired indie rock songbook and a raucously clever live act. He is accompanied by his pet Bubble Machine, which fills the room with shiny bubbles.
We’re really excited about this one. Bobbert should be loads of fun for both parents and children! Our very own Arlington Kids and parents will be there to bring you photos and a review!
