Platinum-selling band Toad the Wet Sprocket, folk-rockers Dawes and folk-pop "Wild Child" Brett Dennen come out to play for the KFOG Concert for Kids. Named after a Monty Python comedy sketch, Toad the Wet Sprocket became one of the most successful alternative rock bands of the early '90s. Their alternative pop sound had just enough of the jangly college radio sound, melded with smooth, listenable pop melodies to make them a hit with modern rock and mainstream music fans. They became a commercial success after the release of their 1991 album Fear, scoring hits with "All I Want," "Fall Down" and "Walk on the Ocean." They'll mix old favorites with new music from their first release in over 15 years, New Constellation. Learn More

The sun, the moon, the stars, the planets and the universe beyond them: Composers have always been fascinated by their seductive power. Chanticleer's newest explorations will be from Berkeley-based composer-DJ Mason Bates in a world premiere about transmissions from outer space and a special arrangement of the hit “Cells Planets” by Erica Lloyd of Little Grey Girlfriend. Fantastic early works by Monteverdi, Marenzio and Palestrina and romantic works by Schumann (“An die Sterne”) and Mahler (“Ich bin der Welt…”) will join the music of 20th-century composers Britten, Mechem, Hopkins (“Past Life Melodies”), Gershwin and others. Come with Chanticleer…out of this world!
Chanticleer — based in San Francisco — is known around the world as “an orchestra of voices” for the seamless blend of its twelve male voices ranging from countertenor to bass and its original interpretations of vocal literature, from Renaissance to jazz, and from gospel to venturesome new music.
