Obama’s election and the tumbling economy should provide plenty of fodder for these politically minded, hip-hop rockers’ weekend jam sessions.

Schedule Friday and Saturday nights’ concerts if you’re up for dancing and a bit of social justice discussion. But book Saturday’s midday show for the kids. Franti, a father himself, will play an acoustic session, while clowns and face painters mingle with the crowds.

Fri 8 p.m.; Sat noon, 8 p.m. The Fillmore Auditorium, 1510 Clarkson St., $30-$55, 303-837-0360, official website
