  • Music:

The Cat Empire, Live at the Enmore, April 23rd.





Saw the Cat Empire play on Saturday night. The front was fucking packed, nothing but bodies of sweaty flesh and energy, each one of us living off what the band provides.

There was virtually no room on the floor, but christ, why would you want to be anywhere else? The Cat Empire is a band to move too, and they know it. They work the crowd up, interact with it just as they let songs turn long burns of solos from the band: drummer, horn section, bass player, keyboards, they all get time to play. The vocals turn secondary in the show, and it just becomes about music made by instruments, and a couple of days later, I can still taste it. Excellent stuff, in other words.
