Kennedy Center launches art Web site

By Washington Post editors

The Kennedy Center plans to launch its new arts education Web site with a concert by the 1980s rock band They Might Be Giants, which is popular again with young audiences.

The center announced the free Oct. 2 concert Wednesday. The event marks the revamp of the center's national K-12 arts education Web site and a series of mobile apps for iPhone and Android smart phones.

The concert at 6 p.m. will be part of the center's Millennium Stage series.

They Might Be Giants has gained attention in recent years for its educational projects for kids. The band won a Grammy for Best Children's Album last year for "Here Come the 123s." Their current release is titled "Here Comes Science."

Their music also is heard nightly in the opening theme for "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" on Comedy Central.
