As the night progresses and baby monsters get dropped off, Molly and Al receive news that the storm of the century is heading their way.

Gustafer Yellowgold, the brainchild of songwriter-performer-illustrator Morgan Taylor, is an international phenomenon, beloved by kids and parents alike. He comes to NYU's Skirball Center in this multi-media performance featuring Taylor and a full band, animated illustrations and storytelling. Gustafer Yellowgold is a friendly creature who came to Earth from the sun and is living out an explorer's life in a slightly psychedelic version of the Minnesota woods.

The adult-friendliness of Gustafer Yellowgold is due in part to Taylor's long and varied musical career, in which he has shared bills with Bob Dylan, The Breeders, Natalie Merchant, Matthew Sweet and Guided By Voices, among many others.
