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

Was scheduled to start at 7:30. Things seemed a little disorganized and it didn't start until almost 8.
Mark Nadler is a talented caberet performer. He played for about an hour.
Chita Rivera did her night club act. It was very enjoyable. She performed for about an hour.
Then there was a long break while a movie screen was erected. They could have done with out it.
Bill Cosby talked ... sooo ... slowww; I left before he finished.
National treasures Bill Cosby and Chita Rivera join internationally acclaimed virtuoso Mark Nadler for a one-night-only gala evening of comedy and musical entertainment. The first act of this 90-minute evening has Mr. Nadler and Ms. Rivera showcasing their thrilling musical acts with Bill Cosby holding forth for all of Act II. If you fell in love with The Cosby Show, one of the biggest hits in television history, this is a chance to reconnect with the hilarity of this master storyteller. A performer, author, television producer, educator and musician, Cosby is a nationally recognized advocate for families and children.
A night of laughter, singing and dancing, the audience will be entertained by the best while supporting Art Start on the organization’s 20th anniversary. Mr. Nadler’s personal interpretation of the American Songbook brings new life to cherished standards, Ms. Rivera dazzles with her endless energy and Broadway brass. 100% of the proceeds of this event go to Art Start bringing the arts to New York’s at-risk and homeless children. Nadler’s dedication to Art Start is the inspiration behind assembling this star-studded cast.
