The "Disney Music Block Party Tour" is certainly one of this summer's most unusual outings. Described as "an engaging concert festival experience for kids and their families," the tour is hosted by Raven-Symone and features bands and artists like They Might Be Giants, Barenaked Ladies, Dan Zanes, Ralph's World, Imagination Movers and Choo Choo Soul on select dates.
