A Bit Showy

Surviving Yo Gabba Gabba! Live! with tots

If you’ve managed to shield your toddler from Yo Gabba Gabba!, then good on you. But for those with rabid DJ Lance Rock fans underfoot, the NOKIA Theater L.A. Live is most likely on your Thanksgiving Weekend agenda: Yo Gabba Gabba! Live! showtimes are 2:30pm and 6pm on 11/25; 11am, 2:30pm, and 6pm on 11/26.

Get there early. There’s plenty of parking, but it’s very, very crowded at the door right before showtime.
Bring earplugs. On the subject of noise, the band can get crazy loud. It’s a good idea to bring some earplugs in case it’s too much for your tot. (And please leave infants at home.)
Beware the hidden fees. Even though tickets are being advertised as starting at $20 per person, there’s a $9.25 convenience charge with every purchase.
Go big or go home. If over-the-top is your thing, splurge for the VIP party package ticket (from $120), which grants access to the “Get the Sillies Out” after-party. No, DJ Lance Rock will not be there, but yes there will be a photo op with the Gabba Gang, plus music, dancing, and healthy snacks. VIP tickets also include seats in the first fifteen rows.
