‘’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

Description

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.
