2011 Arkansas Times Musicians Showcase Round Two: The Yipps

Spun off from Frown Pow'r (full disclosure: Hey, I'm in that band!) and the late, great Coach, The Yipps run a hyper-melodic streak through '60s Britrock guitar rock crunch. This marks a rare live show for the wood-shedding four-piece, all working under the pseudonyms Ronnie, Rocky, Ronin and Chelton Vanderbilt Yipp III. Guitars: jangly. Drums: chaotic. Bass: acrobatic. Songs: dangerously catchy.

Think: The Kinks rocking out at Ardent Studios.

Check it out: "Clouds, Kind Of"
