Gustafer Yellowgold + Rock-n-Romp = Awesomeness

You may remember my post about seeing Gustafer Yellowgold last July at the Germantown Barnes & Noble. I left feeling like he was just way too awesome to play to a handful of people in a bookstore, so being the busy body that I am, I got on the horn and invited him to come back and play Rock-n-Romp.

That's right, he's back! We don't usually do kids' music at Rock-n-Romp, but Gustafer Yellowgold is not your average kid's act. He's sensitive, and despite being from the sun, super cool. The music is crazy catchy and the videos are ridiculously clever. You can hear the music, see the videos, and meet Morgan Taylor, the talented dude who created Gustafer, this Saturday at the Center for Southern Folklore (119 S. Main). The Rock-n-Romp is from 2-5pm, Gustafer goes on at 3pm. (Park at the Peabody Place parking lot on second and get your parking validated at the show.)

But wait! Gustafer is just the tip of the iceberg. We've also got The Kindergarten Circus from Murfreesboro. This is a group of teenage guys that came highly recommended by Those Darlins. And locals, The Yazoo Shakes, will also be playing. They have horns, drums, keyboard, guitars, and more. And if they get up early enough, The Slomski Brothers will also be making an appearance!

All this and beer for just $5. (Kids are free.) Bring a blanket or chair, a snack to share, and your dancin' shoes!

Here's a sneak peek...
