Run With the Kittens CD Release

Earlier this week, while stalking friends and handsome strangers online, I came across a video clip announcing the Run With the Kittens CD release at the Horseshoe on Friday March 16. Run With the Kittens is a four piece band who have been playing together for four years, and they currently hold residency at the Cameron House every Tuesday night, where they perform an ambitious three hour set. They have been compared to Beck and Ween, but I thought their new CD, Condos and Lofts, would have been great for a sixties era lounge party. And, although I liked it, I didn't expect to be blown away by their performance.

Boy, was I wrong.

This was the first gig that the Kittens headlined at a venue as large as the Horseshoe and the place was packed. Run With the Kittens put on a high energy act that flowed seamlessly, even with several costume changes. Their rapport with the audience was dynamite and their stamina admirable. I haven't seen musical talent like that in awhile and I was shocked to learn they have not yet been signed to a record label.

I will likely watch them perform at the Cameron House sometime soon, before they blast off into superstardom, which is right where they belong. After all, I do have a weakness for cute guys with instruments.
