Kidrockers is back for the latest in its series of indie rock-comedy concerts for families with singer-songwriter Adam Green of the Moldy Peaches and the hot new baroque pop band San Fermin. Hosted by comedians Seth Herzog (Late Night with Jimmy Fallon) and Craig Baldo (Last Comic Standing), this authentically awesome Greenwich Village show is plenty cool for schoolkids ages 3 through 13 and highly recommended for their parents too, with original music not specifically written for the younger set. Green is an artist, filmmaker and "anti-folk" solo artist, whose Moldy Peaches' single, "Anyone Else But You" from the film Juno hit No. 1 on the Billboard charts. Led by recent Yale music grad Ellis Ludwig-Leone, the eight-piece live ensemble San Fermin were recently recognized by The New Yorker for their ability to "deliver epic and emotion-laden rock, with glorious and operatic vocals, electronic break beats, horns, strings, and other flourishes." Come early and check out an educational musical activity in the lobby before the show. Learn More
Romantic balladeer Biagio Antonacci emerged in the early '90s to become one of the most successful Italian pop singers of the decade. Born in Milan on November 9, 1963, Antonacci was raised in Rozzano. While studying geometry, in 1988 he entered the annual Festival di Sanremo with his song "Voglio Vivere in un Attimo," scoring a recording contract immediately thereafter. His debut LP, Sono Cose Che Capitano, appeared a year later, but attracted little attention at radio or retail. However, its 1991 follow-up, Adagio Biagio, sold in excess of 150,000, launching Antonacci to national fame. He returned to Festival di Sanremo in 1993 to perform "Non So Più a Chi Credere" in support of his third album, Liberatemi. Subsequent efforts including 1996's Il Mucchio and 1998's Mi Fai Stare Bene solidified Antonacci's superstar status, culminating in the release of his first live effort, 9 Novembre 2001. After spending the next several years on tour, including treks to Spain and South America, the singer resurfaced in 2004 with Conviviendo, Pt. 1, issuing its sequel a year later.
