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..
