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.
