Koo Koo Kanga Roo w/ Bad Speler

Jan. 11 Koo Koo Kanga Roo w/ Bad Speler Waiting Room, 6212 Maple St. 9 p.m., $8, onepercentproductions.com This Tuesday Waiting Room imports the fourth-best dance duo in the Twin Cities. Neil and Bryan’s foray into the world of music and dance has been described by others as a combination of The Beastie Boys and Sesame Street reinforced by their pseudo-ADD hyperactive onstage personalities. They get the crowd bumpin’ to original hot licks like “Dinosaur Stomp” and “No Crust” (for the PB & J lovers out there). Perhaps their most crowd interactive song is “What’s that you say?” that teaches the audience, step by step as the song progresses, the latest dance craze to hit the scene since the mashed potato. Known for the crazy circus-like performances, Koo Koo is also a force on YouTube, where you can check out my favorite video “Rollin’ in the Minivan” at youtube.com/watch?v=66UWn5eP8HU. Look closely at the scenes inside the minivan. We might have a Justin Bieber sighting, and whatever the Bieb likes is OK by me.
