Ozokidz Featuring Ozomatli

Cost: $15 | Get tickets
Age limit: All ages
If you've ever attended an Ozomatli concert, you know it's sort of like being swept up in a Disneyland parade for adults. The unclassifiable L.A. band -- OK, call its members Latino-hip-hop-reggae-rockers, if you must -- is known for a kinetically feel-good performance style that has set audiences swaying and jumping from L.A. to Myanmar, where Ozo once toured on behalf of the U.S. State Department. Now, the band has directed its youthful high spirits into a new record aimed at an even bouncier demographic. "Ozomatli Presents Ozokidz," which will be released Sept. 25, is the group's debut kids disc. After roughly 18 years of singing about gang violence, immigration and other R-rated issues, Ozo with "Ozokidz" turns its rhyming skills to topics such as the importance of taking care of trees and avoiding germs, skateboards, spelling and a moose run amok.
