This Saturday, April 19, Brooklyn Kindie Rockers THE POP UPS, will make an appearance on Sprout - visiting the Sunshine Barn to play some tunes for Chica and Tim on THE SUNNY SIDE UP SHOW. The duo will debut "Bug Out," a new song from their forthcoming album, APPETITE FOR CONSTRUCTION, while also digging into their back catalog for some additional gems to perform. This news comes on the heels of their new single and lyric video for "All These Shapes," which hit the 'net last week. Check out the video below...
