Oobleck

oobleck tell your mom i said hiSomething funky for this gray weather day: Tell Your Mom I Said Hi, the new album from local five-piece funk band Oobleck -- or, as they describe themselves, "funked-out-afro-grunge-rock-alt-dub-whatever."

The band released the album this week, and we've enjoyed spinning through it. We must warn you, though: there's some possibility it might induce chair dancing.

Oobleck has an album release party October 13 at Valentine's. Also on the bill: The Ameros. Show's at 9 pm. Tickets are $5.

Oobleck? You know, from Dr. Seuss. Also: a non-Newtonian fluid.

Heard them at last week's Troy Night Out; we followed the sound from two blocks away to a bank vestibule where they were playing some excellent funk. I was really impressed. Unfortunately we only caught the last song . . . will definitely get the album!

That is my favorite Seuss book. Speaking truth to power.

Yay Oobleck!

these guys so deserve a better venue than the atm lobby! still, i'm curious who they could contact to get the security video footage from their TNO gig...

@ karamia: it was a last-minute rain location. they were supposed to play out in the square, but the weather had other ideas..

I went to one last month. My friend took his oath of citizenship. It is a great ceremony. A local school choir sang. There was a moving speech from one of the new citizens who grew up a refugee and at the age of 21 was finally a citizen of a country for the first time in her life. The League of Women Voters give warm welcomes, flags and voter registration cards to all the new citizens. It gave me such warm fuzzies. Everyone should try to go to one of these if they get the chance.
