Once upon a time, jam bands meant something different to us than our current situation of jelly-stained back seat kid boppers. But just because we can’t swing Bonnaroo or Coachella like we used to, we can still get our fix of live music without needing to schedule a sitter for our rockstars.

TCAN - Natick, Ma

TCAN (The Center for Arts in Natick) is in a converted firehouse with lots of room for kids who've got to move and groove. Expect a diverse line-up of artists, including alt, bluegrass, blues, rock, country, classical, instrumental, and more. They also have a decent cafe for snack emergencies. Kids of all ages are welcome at children's concerts and daytime family events, but evening performances and chamber music concerts are reserved for ages 8 and up.
