Yo Gabba Gabba! is one of the only children’s shows that also caters to the parent’s interests. One of those parents is Damian Abraham, host of The Wedge, and yesterday he was given the chance to express that live on stage with Muno, Foofa, Brobee, Toodee, Plex and DJ Lance Rock. Damian was invited to lead the “Dancey Dance” segment, where a familiar face introduces and demonstrates a new dance for the kids to try. Damian did the “Disco Roll,” which Jack Black somewhat famously did it on the TV show. He pretty much nailed it, and as you can see above, he had a lot of fun doing it. You can also check out a video of him disco rolling here.
Spazzy Baltimore art rockers Ponytail have called it quits. According to a press release, “they were unable to make the touring portion come to life as the members have dispersed across the country in search of other life experiences.” As a parting gift, the band issued a video for the song “Easy Peasy,” which is lifted from this year’s Do Whatever You Want to All the Time.

Because the world needs yet another supergroup, legendary punk bassist Mike Watt and former At The Drive-In/current The Mars Volta frontman Cedric Bixler-Zavala have formed Anywhere. Also featuring Rachel Fannan and Christian Eric Beaulieu of Triclops!, the quartet recorded a very limited edition 7″ titled Pyramid Mirrors. The kicker is that Bixler-Zavala is not fronting the band, but keeping time behind the drum kit. (Via Consequence of Sound)
