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

- A pre-concert discussion with JALC’s Ken Druker begins an hour before the concert.
Chances are you know the music of Billy Strayhorn better than his name. Working both as Duke Ellington's key collaborator and in his own right, Strayhorn was one of the all-time heavyweight composers. He was jazz's leading romantic, as shown in the tender and sensual "Lush Life" and "Lotus Blossom;" and with "Take the A Train" and "Johnny Come Lately" he wrote some of the hardest-swinging tunes of all time. Your ears will thank you for the rare opportunity to hear Wynton Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra play this distinctively gorgeous music. Featuring guest vocalist José James.
Actor Wendell Pierce, from HBO’s The Wire and Treme, and host of Jazz at Lincoln Center Radio, will host the show.
