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..

... the Helderberg neighborhood is fabulous for Trick or Treating, maybe too much so. We always see families coming from other parts of Albany by the van load - being dropped off at one end and working their way to the other. Lots of houses in friendly neighborhoods = a packed and good time. It is also rumored that a few adults dress up and roam the streets handing out adult beverages to other adults. Again, just a rumor...

Good neighborhoods for trick-or-treating?
