A little-known fact about DJ Lance Rock of the Technicolor kids show Yo Gabba Gabba!: He's originally from St. Louis. He'll be coming home in quite a triumphant manner on Sunday, March, 21, when YO GABBA GABBA! LIVE!: THERE'S A PARTY IN MY CITY! comes to the Fox Theatre for two shows, at 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. Tickets are $29.50 and $34.50, and are on sale January 29 at 10 a.m. Says a press release:
This state-of-the-art production featuring music, singing, dancing and animation is an interactive experience offering audience members of all ages the opportunity to witness their favorite characters come to life with the magic words, "Yo Gabba Gabba!." DJ Lance returns to his hometown of St. Louis along with his cast of characters and friends including hip-hop legend Biz Markie who will teach kids to beat box with Biz's Beat of the Day as well as special guests The Aquabats, whose front man Christian Jacobs (aka the Bat Commander) is the co-creator of Yo Gabba Gabba!, for the Super Music Friends Show.
Awesome. The show's musical guests are always pretty amazing: The Shins, the Ting-Tings, Mates of State, Shiny Toy Guns and MGMT -- whose clip is below.
