The Mista Cookie Jar & The Chocolate Chips, a Los Angeles-based variety show featuring "kindie" music -- kid-friendly indie music -- will perform at 2 p.m. this Saturday at the Firehouse Arts Center. Tickets are $12 adults and $10 students.

The group has toured all over the country promoting its blend of urban island-folky-rock 'n' roll, combing rock-star excitement with the warmth of family music.

Also Saturday evening, Pleasanton's own High School Music Collaboration will perform "Parental Control" at 7:30 p.m. The troupe will pause its own playlist to cover their parents' favorite music live at the Firehouse.

The Collaboration will return to the Firehouse stage at 7:30 p.m. next Thursday (April 18), with "Originality 2.0." The theme of the performance is "live, local, original," and will include original music by members of the collaboration. The Oshima Brothers, who are performing at the Firehouse the following night, will make a guest appearance.

Tickets for the HSMC shows are $12 adults; $7 students. For more information, call Firehouse Arts Center at 931-4848.
