Cutthroat Shamrock w/Katie’s Randy Cat

Fri 8/12 • 10:00pm • $5

Cutthroat Shamrock combines the speed of bluegrass with the drive and energy of punk rock and then tops it all off with alittle celtic influence. -Fronted by dual vocals and backed by solid bass lines, the momentum gained by two drummers make this a combination to wake up any size of room. -Each song sounds different from the last yet some how familiar. train like rhythms are traded in for finger picking and the rockabilly slaps of the upright bass are replaced with long dark notes played with a bow. instrumental breaks introduce jigs and reels into almost every song, with guitar leads that would seem more at home on a fiddle or penny whistle.

Katie’s Randy Cat is an Irish punk band from Toledo, Ohio. Steve Steel, vocals, accordion, and pennywhistle; Petr Kharchenko, lead guitar; Greg Heldt, rhythm guitar; Jon Zenz, bass; and Matt Jones, drums. KRC plays Irish rebel music with an upbeat, electric edge. Oi!
