I brought a 4 year old and a 7 year old - the 4 yr old thought it was okay, the 7 yr old was bored. I thought the music was too loud and a bit frenetic, the songs were inappropriate and hard to understand the words, and the whole thing was a bit forced, perhaps trying to be like the Wiggles. The acrobats and juggling acts were good, but not wonderful. I think the little kids enjoyed it - they let them get up on stage and dance. I was disappointed.
Quotes & Highlights
- "...the Flaming Lips of the toddler set." --Los Angeles Times
- "San Francisco's trippy Sippy Cups and their psychedelic puppet shows... leave kids jaw-dropped and enraptured." --Austin Chronicle
- "The key is that the band, far from relying on the crazy stage show, flat out rocks with great covers... and tremendous originals..." --Bill Childs, co-founder of Fids & Kamily Awards
Catch the Mountain View appearance by the band dubbed "The Sgt. Pepper's of Kid Music" by Cookie Magazine. The Sippy Cups are currently on their new Fall from Space! mini-tour.
This season will also see the release of the band's first-ever DVD, documenting the dynamic and colorful stage-show from their acclaimed Electric Storyland album. Entitled Electric Storyland: Live at The Great American Music Hall, the DVD was recorded live at The Music Hall in December 2006, and features original favorites "Springtime Fantastic" and "I Am a Robot," along with "I Wanna Be Elated" (the Sippies' kid-friendly version of The Ramones' classic "I Wanna Be Sedated"), and plenty of the juggling, unicycling, oversized puppetry, giant balloons, streamer cannons, pogo-ing preschoolers, and other sensational live action touches for which The Sippy Cups' shows are known.
About the Ticket Supplier: The Sippy Cups
Created by three dads living in a coastal town just south of San Francisco, The Sippy Cups' first gig was a fundraiser for a community-built playground in their neighborhood. Just two years later, all their concerts sold out in advance, their CDs flew off the shelves, and critical acclaim hailed from the likes of the San Francisco Chronicle, ABC-TV, the New York Post, and Time magazine. The powerful formula of The Sippy Cups' early success lies in their equal appeal to parents and children and a play list from The Beatles, Velvet Underground, Bowie, The Ramones and others. To top it off, their imaginative original tunes are climbing the kid radio charts and being sung by kids around the country. The San Francisco Chronicle called them "every parent's favorite kid rock band and quite possibly the illegitimate offspring of The Cat in the Hat and Joey Ramone."
