1:00 PM Music: Ozokidz Featuring Ozomatli 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.

8:00 PM Stage: Aubergine San Diego Repertory Theatre presents "Aubergine," an unforgettable story of love, family and the healing power of food.​

Ray believes in the power of food. As a gourmet chef, he’s seen a bowl of berries help a woman to fall in love. He’s heard stories of a meal prepared by a mother to keep a son from leaving home and moving to the other side of the world. Now with the help of his uncle, who arrives unexpectedly from Korea, Ray is tasked with preparing a family soup recipe to keep his father alive.

When words fail, a home-cooked meal transcends differences in this touching story of intergenerational connectedness, forgiveness and the sweetest spice of life: love. As a Korean family struggles to relate across emotional and cultural divides, it’s the ingredients they share in common that lead to understanding. "Aubergine" is a mouthwatering meditation on the beauty of life where hope is no mere ingredient"it’s the main course.

The show runs Jan. 24 through Feb. 17, 2019, in the Lyceum Space Theatre in Horton Plaza. Tickets can be purchased in-person at the San Diego REP Box Office, by calling the box office at (61) 544-1000, or online at sdrep.org

9:00 PM Stage: Familiar The Old Globe stages "Familiar," a play written by Tony Award nominee Danai Gurira (also known for "Black Panther" and "Walking Dead").

Donald and his wife Marvelous have been living the American Dream since emigrating from Zimbabwe nearly three decades ago. They have a beautiful house and impressive careers, and now one of their daughters is getting married! But when the bride insists on a traditional African wedding ceremony, tensions start to rise. Throw in an eccentric aunt from the old country and a bewildered bridegroom, and soon it’s not certain the couple will ever make it down the aisle.

The New York Times calls it "an engrossing, fiercely funny comedy"drama that probes with subtlety and smarts."
