The comedy and musical stylings of The Lonely Island is coming to Minneapolis, as part of an East Coast and Midwest tour announced Wednesday.

The hilarious trio – comprising Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer, and Jorma Taccone – will play The Armory on June 29.

If you're not familiar with them, firstly, where have you been? Secondly, they're known for their catalogue of genuinely funny and surprisingly catchy spoof songs that they produced for Saturday Night Live and which went viral in the earlier days of YouTube.

Tracks include the very NSFW "J**z in my Pants," "I Just Had Sex," "I'm On A Boat," "Jack Sparrow," and "Like A Boss."
