KITTEN @ BOOTLEG THEATER

Last month, I got a chance to catch LA-based KITTEN performing at The Bootleg Bar in support of their upcoming EP  which is slated to drop next month ahead of their January debut album.  Seriously, one of the best live acts around, lead-singer Chloe Chaidez is like watching a concert taking place in the middle of a cage fight, surrounded by a chain-link fence.

Though it's been through some member changes (a few forming Fidlar), KITTEN hasn't lost what thousands of fans loved about the band -  fuzzy-dream-pop that balances on the fragility yet frenzied vocals of Chloe.  So far they've released two singles, 'Cut It Out" and "Sugar" that showcases their psychedelic-induced melodies and mature writing style while their counterparts - pre-fabricated pre-teen bands their age are pumping out Radio Disney pop songs.

Currently, KITTEN is on their summer tour with Pomegranates which takes them through 14 cities and ends on August 4th. Check out the vid by Guerrilla Nights of KITTEN performing "Sugar."
