i think the one in Redwood City, CA was better. The venue in Mountain View was half filled and not sure if it was the band or the crowd but it seemed a little dead. This one seemed short, there was no real ending finale. But my 4.5 year old had a good time.
Quotes & Highlights
- ''Smart, inventive artists including the Sippy Cups... are treating their juvenile audience with respect, not condescension - and making music that really rocks.'' --Los Angeles Times, Top 10 of 2006
Dubbed "every parent's favorite kid rock band" by the San Francisco Chronicle, The Sippy Cups are an original Bay Area phenomenon that has gone nationwide. To the delight of cool kids and their grown-ups everywhere, the band has staged family matinees and garnered critical acclaim at some of the most renowned rock clubs, prestigious music festivals, and a variety of performing arts centers across the country. Blending kid-friendly covers from the likes of The Velvet Underground and The Ramones with their own like-minded originals, and featuring an interactive, circus-style stage show, The Sippy Cups throw a magical rock & roll party for kids of all ages - a hipster parent's dream of a child's first live concert. This event will also provide a "sneak-peek" into The Sippy Cups eagerly awaited third full length album, to be titled The Time Machine, with release expected in early 2009.
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."
