More info about the concert:

Part concert, part animated movie and 100 percent fun, The New York Times describes Gustafer Yellowgold as, “Dr. Seuss meets Yellow Submarine!” The brain child of singer/songwriter/illustrator Morgan Taylor, Gustafer Yellowgold is a creature who hails from the sun. During the concert, the story of Gustafer and his friends comes to life on a giant screen while Morgan and his band play lush harmonies and sing-along-worthy tunes. This concert is perfect family fun.

We’d love to give one of our MyDFWMommy readers a family 4-pack of tickets to attend the show on 8/2! To enter, tell us you favorite Gustafer Yellowgold song or video in a comment below (check them out HERE). We’ll announce a winner on Tuesday, 7/29
