For families already "keeping it yellow," Gustafer Yellowgold's November show at Symphony Space is an opportunity to hear new songs well in advance of Gustafer Yellowgold's Infinity Sock, the DVD/CD due out in February 2011. For the uninitiated, the multimedia concert, in which videos accompany the live tunes, is a perfect chance to experience the adventures of the animated character from the sun.
According to Yellowgold creator and songwriter Morgan Taylor, Infinity Sock (or, as Taylor has dubbed it for kindie hipsters, iSock) is all about friendship. "Cheddar" riffs on Yellowgold's best bud, a flightless pterodactyl; "Slim Gets In 'Em" is an ode to Gustafer's pet eel; and "Beehive" buzzes about his emotional insect friends, the band of bees.
The preview concert will showcase a trio of these brand-new songs from iSock—though Taylor has yet to determine which he'll present—performed by the full band and the mini (but mighty) Yellowgold string section. And that's good news, whether your family is just getting to know Gustafer or you're longtime fans of the mellow yellow creature.
Gustafer Yellowgold plays Sat Nov 20 at 11am Symphony Space.
