Barney, Kermit the Frog and Big Bird were once gods to children, but it’s hard to say whether the parents of yesteryear shared the excitement. Yo Gabba Gabba!, meanwhile, definitely appeals to oldsters at least as much as it appeals to the young. Created by Scott Schultz and Christian Jacobs—the former a producer and the latter a member of California rock band The Aquabats—the music-centric show is like the Austin City Limits of children’s programming: In its four seasons, it’s seen The Shins sing about trying again, The Roots host a fam-jam and Weezer perform as insects. (Other notable cameos: Fred Armisen, Jack Black and Elijah Wood.) When Music is Awesome, the show’s touring production, hits the Sony Centre this Thursday, the majestically sideburned DJ Lance Rock, rapper-entertainer Leslie Hall, hip-hop OG Biz Markie and a flock of fluorescent puppets will recreate the magic with live performances, an onstage dance party and a beat-boxing lesson. Hey, the kids might even like it, too.

Thurs. Oct. 23. $33.15–$55.40. Sony Centre, 1 Front St. E., 416-368-6161, yogabbagabbalive.com.
