Dream Big! with Roger Day 

When: Sat., Jan. 29, 11 a.m. 2011
Price: $7-10
Music for kids has gotten more elaborate and appealing to adults, though I still drew the line at driving to Greensboro to see Yo Gabba Gabba! last fall (it felt creepy, though I regretted it when I heard Biz Markie showed up). Roger Day, a collaborator with the likes of the Indigo Girls, Nanci Griffith and the Crickets, exemplifies this appeal, composing such kids' songs as "I Like Yaks" (and the brain-themed album Why Does Gray Matter?) that draw influence from the likes of U2 and The Clash. Day, who's received the Harry Chapin Award for Contributions to Humanity, is touring to promote his album Dream Big!, about the importance of dreams. He'll also be on WCOM-FM 103.5 on Jan. 28 from 4–5 p.m. to answer fan questions and take requests. The show is recommended for pre-K to 5th-grade audiences, though adults might get a little something out of it as well. —Zack Smith
