Truth: I will take any opportunity to dance. Sometimes involuntarily, just because there is music playing.
Second truth: As you know, peanut butter and jelly is my favorite meal.
Third truth: I became a real Sesame Street fan when I was a teenager. I dig what the show is about. And also Grover.
Fourth truth: For as shy as I can be, I am not afraid of looking silly in public if it means helping other people get past their own inhibitions and have a good time.
Bottom line: I have found a new must-see band.
Let’s be honest, when I read that Koo Koo Kanga Roo described themselves as “the Beastie Boys multiplied by Sesame Street plus the driving dance beats of Daft Punk and the live show antics of the Flaming Lips,” I knew we had a winner.
So if you want to have probably the most out-of-your-seat fun you will have at a concert, check this band out while they are still on tour. Even my husband, who claims he absolutely does not dance was dancing. So now you have to go.
