Laminated Cat with Apples in Stereo and Generationals at the Middle East Downstairs TONIGHT!

laminated cat

Laminated Cat is an eclectic band originally from Boston but says their roots are in Coastal Maine. They carry a sound with includes the strangeness of Daniel Johnston, the rock of The Velvet Underground and the creativity The Flaming Lips. Laminated Cat is just what indie music needs, something completely different. Their songs range from calm space-songs like "Grenadine", a sweet song with light, flowery harmonic vocals to the hard-hitting, ingeniously written "Kill 'em Shorty" with angry keys, angst-ridden 70's garage guitar and creepy, desperate vocals. Laminated Cat is playing tonight with Generationals and the m'f'in' Apples in Stereo at the Middle East Downstairs. I highly, highly recommend this show. Honestly, Laminated Cat is one of the best bands I've heard since I started the Deli New England.
