Trachtenburg Family Slideshow Players

My colleague Dan Melomedman pointed me to this pop group, which appears to be something of a rage these days. Dad plays guitar and keyboard while 9-year-old daughter, the star of the show, plays drums and bass. Mom shows old slideshows purchased from estates of the recently deceased, which illustrate or illuminate the words to the songs. Truly amazing!

Check them out! Through their web site, I found an NPR Weekend Edition Sunday story, a documentary for the BBC, an MTV News story, an appearance on Late Night with Conan O'Brien and much, much more, including photo, audio and movie files. They even made the "Talk of the Town" column in New Yorker magazine.
