Saturday To-Do: Turquoise Jeep Records, Yip Deceiver

TURQUOISE JEEP RECORDS, YIP DECEIVER
9 p.m., Revolution. $12 adv.

Turquoise Jeep Records is the YouTube-famous novelty hip-hop collective known for absurdist club rap anthems like "Lemme Smang It," "Taste You Like Yogurt," and "Naughty Farmer."

Their videos, handmade and ambitiously out-there in a "Tim & Eric" sort of way (think two-dimensional, pastel-colored underwater and outer-space scenes), are either hideous or hilarious depending on how funny you find the idea of song called "Naughty Farmer." The stable includes rappers Flynt Flossy, Yung Humma, Whatchyamcallit, Pretty Raheem, and a few others, who, in addition to the videos, collaborated on the 2013 album "Existing Musical Beings."

This Saturday, they'll share a bill at Revolution with Yip Deceiver, the dance-pop side hustle of Davey Pierce and Nicolas Dobbratz (of Of Montreal out of Athens, Ga.), which sounds like Of Montreal minus the goofy prog surrealism.
