A unique show is coming to the Alden Theatre at the McLean Community Center in a couple of weeks — Gustafer Yellowgold is described by the venue as “equal parts pop concert and animated movie.” His website bio further explains that he “is a friendly creature who came to Earth from the sun and is living out an explorer’s life in a slightly psychedelic version of the Minnesota woods.”
Okay, I’m intrigued and think my kids will be, too. But, as I’m not that familiar with Gustafer’s shows, here’s more about them, straight from the creature himself: “Gustafer Yellowgold concerts are a one-of-a-kind blend of live music and moving image, projected in vivid color onto a large screen. The minimally animated illustrations are accompanied by illustrator/songwriter Morgan Taylor’s catchy and original story-songs, for a truly different multimedia experience that entrances children and adults alike.”
The show, recommended for ages 4 and up, takes place on Sunday, November 21, at 3pm. Tickets are $12/person, $8/McLean residents. The McLean Community Center Alden Theatre is located at 1234 Ingleside Avenue in McLean.
