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

For a couple of years beginning in 1965, Sanders worked frequently with John Coltrane, playing on several influential recording dates during the period when Coltrane was extending the boundaries he had previously breached with his music. Sanders' playing with Coltrane was marked by a ferocious tone which sometimes growled, sometimes screeched and, within a limited range, he shaped intriguing and often adventurous phrases. In 1968, he played with the Jazz Composer's Orchestra led by Michael Mantler and Carla Bley. In his mid-career Sanders rarely extended the format of his earlier popular success and many of his 70s and 80s records were curious and unsuccessful mixtures of jazz, strings and vocals (most notably by Leone Thomas ) that offered fairly banal paeans to peace and love. In the late 80s, he reverted to a more purely instrumental jazz and was later a familiar figure at international festivals, playing in a style that displayed a clear understanding of bebop and hinted only occasionally at his earlier espousal of the sometimes less accessible aspects of the freedom principle. His two records for Verve Records were produced by Bill Laswell.
