Hot Lava: Rock Music for All Ages will perform from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday at the Rancho La Patera & Stow House for the final concert of the Music at the Ranch concert series.

It’s rock music — big amps, guitars, the whole bit — and it’s for kids, although grown-ups really like it, too. Hot Lava performs a variety of songs, from tunes familiar to the youngest listeners, to catchy, quirky original rocks songs for all ages. Beverages will be available for purchase.

Music at the Ranch is funded entirely by sponsors and donations. Sponsors of the 2008 series included Noozhawk, ATK Space Systems, the city of Goleta, and others.
