University City’s newest music venue, World Café Live, plans most of its programming for grownups—but there’s plenty on stage this summer for the little ones, too. The new “Peanut Butter and Jams” performance series is designed especially for that purpose, with music, comedy and science for young minds. Coming up in June are shows from Ralph’s World, featuring a former rock musician bent on banishing bad kids’ music from radios everywhere; two-time Grammy nominee Michelle Shocked performing a show of songs specifically for her young fans; and John Hadfield’s Science Show (right), a blend of magic, comedy and wacky science experiments. For information, go to: www.worldcafelive.com or call 215-222-1400.
