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.

The Marquis Theatre - Denver, Co

With a regular all-ages line up for parents and their kids who are interested in rock, punk, and metal, The Marquis Theatre caters to younger concertgoers. Just keep in mind that this isn't a wiggle and wobble morning show. It's legit, and you're going to see a real rock, punk, or metal show. There's also a pizza joint in the front lobby. Just in case you hadn't already convinced them that you're the coolest parent in the history of the world, you can seal the deal with dinner at this spot.
