Yo Gabba Gabba, feat. Leslie Hall & Biz Markie Sarofim Hall, Hobby Center December 10, 2010
Yo Gabba Gabba, the children's TV show currently touring as a live stage production, has plenty of positive messages for young kids: It's okay to be different. Be sure to eat your fruits and vegetables. You don't have to be afraid of the dark.
But the biggest message seems to be one of the show's most popular taglines: Listening and dancing to music is awesome. It's this musical pedigree - guests on the show include Mark Mothersbaugh and Biz Markie - that makes the show a hit with parents as well as kids. It's also what makes the program most endearing to Aftermath.
Which is why hipster dads and young moms showed up at Hobby Center on Friday, kids in tow, dressed in DJ Lance Rock costumes or matching mother-daughter T-shirts displaying the shows' characters. Aftermath, who does not have kids, borrowed a friend's three-year-old to help us get in the childlike mood. Not that we needed much help.
