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
