Here at ChiIL Mama we've long been fans of this charming yellow alien and his quirky, cool take on our home planet. Gustafer Yellowgold's LIVE shows are out of this world! They're a creative, multimedia extravaganza of animated screen shots and LIVE music by the multi faceted illustrator/songwriter/performer Morgan Taylor! Parents and little folk alike will be captivated and entranced by Taylor's magical melding of music and art.

"A star in the world of family entertainment." -- The Boston Globe
"Marvelously mellow, perfectly loopy ..." -- Paste Magazine
Celebrating the release of Gustafer Yellowgold's Wisdom Tooth of Wisdom, the newest installment in the award-winning series of Gustafer Yellowgold "Musical Moving Book" DVD/CD sets, Gustafer Yellowgold's "The Tooth Will Set You Free" Tour comes to Chicago for an out-of-this world, multimedia family show with full band at 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, October 19 at Schubas, 3159 N. Southport, Chicago.
Groovy Gustafer Yellowgold is a friendly fellow who came from the Sun and landed in the Minnesota woods. Illustrator/songwriter/performer Morgan Taylor developed the Gustafer Yellowgold experience as equal parts pop rock concert and animated picture book.
This live performance will feature new songs and videos from Gustafer Yellowgold's Wisdom Tooth of Wisdom, along with plenty of fan favorites from the five previous Gustafer Yellowgold releases, as well as this year's hit single, "Cakenstein." All are filled with the one-of-a-kind Gustafer Yellowgold blend of blissful pop music, lyrical poignancy, and cartoon absurdity. The songs, by themselves, are loved by people of all ages whose taste runs to alternative pop/rock, while the video elements unfold in graphic novel fashion, revealing an ink and colored pencil fantasy world that's especially appealing to children.
