In honor of Martin Luther King Jr. and his visionary spirit, the Mattress Factory is opening up our doors to everyone on Monday, January 20th, 2014. We want to share some birthday cake and celebrate the life of this admired historic figure. Use this as an excuse to check out our installations, participate in some hands-on workshops and get groovy with a KID CITY ROCKERS indie dance party just for kids!

MLK Day will also be the host of our Mini-Factory Launch Party! Come and find out more about our NEW program for 3-6 year olds and play in our NEW mobile pop-up space. 

KIDS CITY ROCKERS is Pittsburgh's premier indie dance party for kids and families. Led by DJ KellyMom, she spins familiar kid-friendly songs that the parents grew up dancing to, as well as newly released songs to keep things fresh. We feel that children should not be limited to the music heard in a classroom or typical children's TV programming. We also believe that parents want to dance with their children outside of their own living rooms to good music. At KID CITY ROCKERS you can dance to your hearts content from artists like: The Cure, Jawbreaker, English Beat, No Doubt, The Ramones, La Tigre, Beastie Boys, New Order, The Clash, Bob Marley, Man or Astroman, The Pixies, Cyndi Lauper, The Who, Bow Wow Wow, M.I.A., Hot Hot Heat, Wanda Jackson, White Stripes and The Pogues, to just name a few.
