Start 2010 With A Bang: Twin Cats (Artist Spotlight)

The Twin Cats blend a delicate balance of trippy jams, jazzy instrumentals, and intense rock. As veterans of the music festival scene (Wuhnurth, Springfest, Knollfest, Summercamp, 10KLF), they play to connect with audience members and strive to be the source of their happy feelings. The addition of a woodwind section (sax and flute) adds another dimension to their sound, giving the Twin Cats even more room to experiment musically.

Friday January 1st will be a night to remember as one of Indy’s best homegrown bands kick off the 2010 concert year at the prestigious Vogue Nightclub. The Twin Cats, arguably the top live act in Indianapolis right now, will headline the event and keep the party rockin’ well into the morning.

And make sure you come early. The Twin Cats always pack out whatever venue they play.

As one of the 4 local bands opening a new year of concerts at The Vogue, I asked Adam Catron of The Twin Cats to reflect on 2009 and look into the coming year. Read below for his responses.

What do you see as the band’s biggest accomplishment in 2009?

The Twin Cats’ biggest accomplishment in 2009 was signing with local label OWL Studio’s and releasing our second album Thick.

What/where was your most memorable concert performance of 2009? Why/what was so special?

Definitely performing at [the Indy] Jazz Fest. So many amazing musicians were apart of the event and it was perfect timing for the release of our album Thick with OWL Studios.

The best show you saw in 2009 as an audience member? Why?

That is a really hard question, but I have to go with, Marcus Miller at Jazz Fest. The sound was great, all my friends and band mates were there. And I was able to go back stage and meet some amazing musicians.

What about 2010 excites you the most right now?

Just waiting to see what happens with our album Thick. And getting in on some summer festivals!

What can your fans look forward to in the coming year from your band?

Many more Indianapolis and Mid-West shows, more studio albums, new songs, and more Face Melting Funk In Your Face Melting It.
