It made perfect sense that when I walked into this show, down the stairs at (Le) Poisson Rouge, Mixel Pixel was already on stage in fuzzy animal costumes with guitars and a laptop and a big screen projecting cartoons, and little kids were dancing in the light, encouraged by their way cool parents to run around. Everything was fuzzy and bright, and just a bit day-glo, despite the dark interior.
