Nickelodeon's Fresh Beat Band came to town Friday night for a 5 p.m show at the Pabst Theater. 4 year-old Jake T. Sherman was there to check it out. His brief review follows.
"We went to the Third Ward, first," said Jake. "'Cause, well that's what we did and that's how you get there." "Then, we got our tickets."
As for a general review of the show? "It was good," said Sherman.
"The stage had music notes on the curtain and the ground, and in one of the parts they threw ribbons at us. It was cool. Big beach balls too, but we didn't get one."
"My favorite songs? "(Shout out) Like a Rock Star" and "Loco Legs" were great. There were two girls and two boys in the band. One girl played drums, one girl played guitar, one boy played a keyboard and Twist was singing," Sherman said.
"I really liked going up in the elevator to our seats with your friend named Andy (Andrew Nelson, PR director at The Pabst Theater). He had a hoop ball jersey on. That was fun. It was a secret elevator near the hall way."
When asked about the crowd, Sherman said, "There were a lot of kids there, not all danced, but I did."
