Beachland Ballroom, Cleveland, OH
A real cat empire would probably mean a lot of hairballs and dander, along with endless chasing of dust mites and boxing at shadows. Adorable, indeed. But this Cat Empire is an Aussie band that exists for one purr-pose and one purpose only: to rock crowds into a frenzy. During their early career, Cat Empire got lumped in with ska bands, then got lumped in with funk, and then...well, they just became one of those bands with slashes in them. Because no one knows quite what to call Cat Empire. They really are a gang of musical strays, but those are the most loveable, aren't they? Come bounce with Cat Empire, and their special guests, The Pinstripes, a ska band from Cincy.
