The Yo Gabba Gabba "There's a Party In My City" tour finally hits San Diego for two shows today.
Perhaps you're a parent who reads my nightly recommendations. Perhaps you can't go out because you have major responsibilities between your family and your job. Well, today is your day to be Super Mom or Super Dad, because you can take the kids to see Yo Gabba Gabba's There's a Party In My City tour. You can please the kids while also geeking out on hipster parent humor. I don't have kids, but I do have nieces and a nephew, and when I found out this tour was coming to town way back in February, I have to say it has been a much anticipated show for my family ever since. We'll be there, and while the show isn't easy on the wallet, it is a kids' show made for parents to enjoy. I personally cannot wait to catch the show and neither should you. The benefit is that you can exhaust the kids, catch a sitter, and still make it out for some adult fun with a free early show at the Casbah, some fun dance music at the House of Blues, or any other number of San Diego's usual offerings for grownups.
Yo Gabba Gabba! There's a Party In My City tour @ Valley View Casino Center (3 p.m. and 5 p.m.)
Cover Me Badd 10th Anniversary Show, featuring Blasphemous Guitars, Geezer, Geezer From the Crypt, the Beatles US, District of Rebellion, Lil Strummer Orchestra, Too Cool for Karaoke @ Casbah (free show; doors open at 7p.m.)
Pretty Lights , Free the Robots, Gramatik @ House of Blues
