Once upon a time, jam bands meant something different to us than our current situation of jelly-stained back seat kid boppers.

Atlas Theater - Washington D.C.

Friday Mornings at the Atlas and Boogie Babes at this District hotspot are a sure bet for family programming that delivers. And if you're looking for something a touch more sophisticated, an early evening jazz concert is just the ticket for a chill scene that will embrace entire families with open arms.
