Plenty of musicians go unnoticed until they’ve been around for decades, if they ever get noticed at all.

The opposite is happening with the Park Slope pre-teens of Care Bears On Fire, who have already made it into Billboard’s 2006 Top Ten Critic’s Choice List.

That’s pretty impressive for a group that was formed in the fourth grade at Berkeley Carroll Elementary School.

The Care Bears, who cite the Sex Pistols and Yo La Tengo as influences, will be bringing their most energetic post-nap time rock to the Liberty Heights Tap Room on Mar. 3. Don’t laugh. This is a big deal.

“They bring a big crowd,” said the Tap Room’s Steve Deptula. “Everybody sets up a concession stand and sells their CDs. These guys had a line that ran for at least 25 minutes and I was on line for 15 to buy them myself. That never happens.”

Apparently, the kids are alright.

Care Bears on Fire play at 2:45 pm Mar. 3 at the Liberty Heights Tap Room (34 Van Dyke St. at Dwight Street in Red Hook). Free. For information call (718) 246-8050.
