Roofless Records and Yip Yip Bring the Pizza Party to Sweat Records Tomorrow

​Everyone's dreamt about discovering a drippingly delicious pizza planet. But only Orlando's Yip Yip had the courage to cross the cosmos in pursuit of pepperoni.

Before becoming interstellar explorers, though, Jason Temple (Yip 1) and Brian Esser (Yip 2) were just like the rest of us. They watched the stars, dreaming of delivery, enduring hunger pains. Till, one night, the cravings became insane enough that Brian said: "Fuck this, man. There's a big pizza pie in the sky. I can feel it." And so, they packed their bags, made a mixtape, and built a spaceship from spare parts like the Korg X-911, Tama Techstar, Casio PT-20. The trip was long, but the rewards were cheesy.

Now, best thing: Yip Yip brought back a little piece of pizza planet for everyone. (And by "little piece of pizza planet," we mean music, not food.) Go get your wedge tomorrow when Roofless Records honors these American heroes at Sweat with some help from Space Voodoo Crystal, Animals of the Arctic, Lesson Lesson Lessen Relearn, and Hydroplane. There will be sonic-powered space travel, pepperoni pie (if you bring it), and booze (again, if you bring it).

Saturday, February 27. Sweat Records, 5505 NE 2nd Ave., Miami. The show starts at 8 p.m. and tickets cost $5 through Rooflessrex.com.
