The Aquabats and Biz Markie at Yo Gabba Gabba Live! - March 16, 2010

Yo Gabba Gabba! is a children's television show co-created by Christian Jacobs of The Aquabats and Gleaming The Cube fame. The show features regular appearances by Biz Markie and Mark Mothersbaugh of DEVO and guest appearances by numerous celebrities including Jack Black and Tony Hawk. The show also has a musical segment, The Super Music Friends Show. The Shins, The Roots, and Weezer are just some of the bands that have appeared.

Recently, the Yo Gabba Gabba! gang has hit the road for the "There's A Party In My City!" tour, and I took my 2 year old daughter to see the show in Toronto on March 16, 2010. I also managed to grab some video with my Flip. Check out The Aquabats performing "Pool Party" and Biz Markie recreating his "Beat Of The Day" segment.

Also, check out this 2006 trailer for a documentary about Avail. I'm not sure if this is still in the works or is no longer happening, but it's still worth watching.
