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. Read on for our favorite spots around the country to catch some tunes with tots in tow.

Terrapin Crossroads - San Rafael, Ca

A favorite spot with locals who love to noodle with their noodles, Terrapin's new outdoor concert area is the perfect accompaniment to the restaurant's play area. Check their calendar for “Stories & Songs” and hit the free outdoor afternoon of music and storytelling for kids and their families. As for the restaurant, its farm-to-table American menu features food for the foodies as well as classic kids fare that is fresh, locally sourced, and sustainable. Oh, yes, they serve local wines, microbrews, and gourmet cocktails, too.
