Gustafer Yellowgold's Rock Melon Tour

Give a sunshiney, warm welcome to Gustafer Yellowgold! A friendly creature who came to Earth from the sun, Gustafer is living out an explorer’s life in a slightly psychedelic version of the Minnesota woods with a sensitive Dragon, fashionista Pterodactyl, his best friend the Eel, among many others.  The Rock Melon Tour is a multi-media performance of live music, animated illustrations and storytelling presented by its creator, Morgan Taylor. Although Gustafer and his world were created for children and family enjoyment, its unique crossover appeal has earned the show a wild-card opening act for Wilco and The Polyphonic Spree.  Join us on February 28 at 7:00 PM for a free performance. Don't forget to stay Yellow!
