As we begin to thaw out from winter’s unrelenting brutality (hopefully!), there are six terrific concerts for you to enjoy alongside your kids featuring a mix of local and out-of-town bands, and one brilliant evening of youthful song and discussion with a pair of musical heavyweights for you to have fun sans children.

Sugar Free Allstars

When: Sat., Mar. 22, 11 a.m.

Where: Symphony Space, 2537 Broadway, Upper West Side

Cost: $20 adults / $15 kids

This funky duo will roll into town from faraway Oklahoma City with the mission of bringing their Big Easy funk, Memphis soul and Hammond organ-soaked songs to city kids. This rare treat to hear authentic funky rock music from one of the greatest live kindie bands of the day shouldn't be missed.

It’s another month of awesome concerts; will you be attending any with your little rock stars?
