Kitten Crisis, Amy Bruce Spaceshow and The Bricks


Slabtown (map) Northwest
Fri., July 11, 3 p.m. 2014 All Ages


As a "critic," I feel like it's my responsibility to get this out of the way: Kitten Crisis is a movingly bad band name. This is coming from somebody with a very low sensitivity to stupidity. (I was once in a band called the Moving Pictures. Please do not Google us.) There are plenty of good bands with cringe-inducing names (e.g., Radiohead, the Beatles), and Illinois-based Kitten Crisis is one of them. Their latest release, the appropriately titled Summer 2014 Demo, is four tracks in less than eight minutes, and it's roundly irresistible—in particular the unbearably cute, Tiger Trap-ish "Vegan Love Song," to which I can totally relate even though I love eating animals. So hey, Kitten Crisis, keep doing what you're doing, but you might want to consider changing your name—just don't take any suggestions from me. MORGAN TROPER
