Turquoise Jeep concert at the Blind Pig

Music comedy is a niche genre, and few artists have been able to make serious headway in it. The more famous groups of today would be Tenacious D and Flight of the Conchords. Both of these are known more for punchlines and the songs themselves being a joke, but a relative newcomer, Turquoise Jeep, lives in the joke. The entire label itself is devoted to the art of satire and making fun of the current pop and hip-hop movement. They release really funny videos that feature their caricatures wholeheartedly devoted to the joke. It’s obvious that everything they do is a joke, with songs like Smang It and Stretchy Pants, but their videos show little in the way of them revealing they think it’s a joke. With fake facial hair and over exaggerated expressions, they highlight the things other artists take so seriously in a comedic way. On Saturday, the members of the label are performing at The Blind Pig, which is sadly sold out now. If you want to see some of what you will be missing, go to their YouTube page and check out some of their videos. Fair warning, most of them are explicitly inappropriate. Above is Did I Mention I Like to Dance?
