Yo Gabba Gabba! Live
Yo Gabba Gabba! live on stage at the Palais Theatre this afternoon, how could I say no? It was the second of three shows they were doing today, and the audience was filled with parents and their young kids. The staging for the show was simple but effective with a large movable screen at the back and an open stage for characters to move and dance around on. DJ Lance Rock was exactly as he appears on tv (and is even like that in real life according to my friend). They did many of their well known songs, including "Name Game," "I Like to Dance," "Party in my Tummy," "Get the Sillies Out," "The Freeze Game" and "Bubbles" (complete with actual bubbles which had the kids going crazy in the aisles trying to pop them). Another reason I went was that Little Red was the Super Music Friends guest for the Melbourne shows. They sang their hit single "Rock It," which DJ Lance Rock liked. They also had Biz Markie there to do Biz's Beat of the Day, and he got some kids in the audience to do some beatboxing with him. Overall it was a very entertaining show, and Yo Gabba Gabba! is definitely one of the few tolerable children's shows on tv.
