In November 2013, The Pizza Underground played the anti-folk open mic night at the Sidewalk Cafe in New York using a pizza box as a percussion instrument. The band were threatened with violence by rival pizza-based band Personal & The Pizzas who formed in 2010 and released the ‘Raw Pie’ cassette on Burger Records in the same year. Speaking in 2013, frontman Personal claimed he was set to “kill” The Pizza Underground before suing them for stealing his niche.
