Yo Gabba Gabba!, Dark Star Orchestra, Brother Ali, and More in This Week's Issue
Yo Gabba Gabba! shows kids the right way to have a good time.
Say no more, elitist parents: Yo Gabba Gabba! isn't just for kids anymore. What other children's show features awesome musical performances by some pretty big names on every episode? Kids love the music and parents like the substantial musical cameos. The variety of artists play in their own style, entertaining adults and children alike with an area of genres and sounds, all while portraying a message to the kids. Best of all, the show teaches preschoolers to develop a musical taste as they get exposed to new music, not just to like what's cool.
Dark Star Orchestra is taking on a new project for their From a City Near You tour. In an effort to keep things fresh, the Grateful Dead tribute band will be playing the complete setlist that the Dead once played in the Phoenix area. Meanwhile, Brother Ali may be one of the best Muslim rappers. But it turns out that there are a few additional Muslim rappers who also have mad Muslim street cred.
