Yo Gabba Gabba! Live!

Need to score some major "cool" points with that special kid in your life? You can this weekend--Yo Gabba Gabba! Live!: There's A Party In My City! is coming to town!

DJ LANCE.jpgYo Gabba Gabba! , the popular Nick Jr. children's series, is coming to the stage in an action-packed extravaganza featuring DJ Lance Rock (Lance Robertson) and the rest of the Gabba Gang, Muno, Brobee, Toodee, Foofa, and Plex. The fun-filled show will be interactive for all audience members and will feature singing, dancing, and a variety of entertainment to keep the crowd on its feet. For both the young and old hip hop fans alike, the show will contain a special treat; legendary rapper Biz Markie, a Yo Gabba Gabba! regular, will be on hand to teach the art of beatboxing. Other show segments will include the "Super Music Friends Show" and "Dancey Dance."

Good to see these sorts of events happening - and that some of the money raised is going to charity. Agreed - a great way to score some kid brownie points! RobertP
