The Sippy Cups in Washington, D.C. on May 2, 2009

I love the name of this band. The Sippy Cups!

How many sippy cups have I bought over the years? How many styles did I experiment with in those early days when my babies refused to drink out of a sippy cup? But through and through one thing was constant — all sippy cups were sippy cups regardless of brand. Is there a sippy cup brand?

The Sippy Cups will be in concert on May 2nd, at noon and 3 p.m. at the National Geographic Headquarters in Washington, D.C.

Returning by popular demand, The Sippy Cups, described by the San Francisco Chronicle as “every parent’s favorite kid rock band and quite possibly the illegitimate offspring of The Cat in the Hat and Joey Ramone,” brings its mix of imaginative originals, cult-rock favorites, puppets, aerial feats, and juggling to Grosvenor Auditorium for an unforgettable whirlwind of a show that will appeal to music fans of all ages. The Sippy Cups first full-length CD, Electric Storyland, has been described by Cookie magazine as “the Sgt. Pepper’s of kids’ music,” and their next album, The Time Machine, will be released in early 2009. Bring the whole family and find out why this band has, in three short years, grown from their Bay Area roots into a national phenomenon.
