Black Cat Bone returns to Mulligan’s Pub for the 616 Showcase, on the fortuitous date of 6/16. Devilyn Carver put together this show featuring a pretty wide range of talent.
From the event description:
Music Starts 6pm (21+)
As a founding member of The Almighty Foot Clan, WuZee has gained a reputation as one of the most entertaining performers in West Michigan. Though he draws massive influence from hip hop titans such as MF Doom and Wu-Tang Clan, WuZee’s upbeat style and choice samples never fail to draw a crowd. A nimble lyricist in his own right, WuZee continues to collaborate with many hip hop groups and performers from around the country.
Brother Adams –
The unique combination of acoustic and electric instrumentation brings the idea of folk-rock to a new, almost experimental level in Holland-bred Brother Adams. The raw, Modest Mouse-esque rock ‘n’ roll vocals add even more urgency to the trio’s sound, urging the audience to scream the lyrics right along. That being said, a Brother Adams live performance is one not to be missed: These guys love to pull the audience into the expressive passion they pour out on every stage they step onto.
Black Cat Bone –
Black Cat Bone is a roots music collective exploring the depths of neo-primitive blues and dirty folk. Inspired by the Lomax recordings of early 20th century sharecroppers and prisoners of the rural southern states.
Black Cat Bone utilizes bottleneck guitar, harmonica, and drums to deliver their nihilistic version of the american music experience. Delivering songs about god, the devil, and the lost and lonely souls in between, Black Cat Bone serves up the type of stuff you can play while drinkin’ on the front porch with your friends and family… simple, raw, honest.
Black Cat Bone returns to the Tip Top Deluxe on June 2 to open for Bloodshot Bill. Chuck Whiting will also be performing (woo! woo!) at the coolest little music shack in town. We will be debuting our new drummer Eric, who has played in some kick ass bands like Buffalo Witch
Black Cat Bone just landed a sweet gig with the legendary Freight Train Rabbit Killer out of Kansas City, Missouri. The show is at Mulligan’s Pub in Eastown, the only neighborhood in Grand Rapids skanky enough to host such musical filth as this event promises to be.
If you havent checked out FRTK yet, their bio describes the band in an interesting manner:
“The band Freight Train Rabbit Killer is made up of Kris Bruders (Freight Train) and Mark Smeltzer (Rabbit Killer) Freight Train Rabbit Killer is a duet. Described as a heavy doom blues American Roots opera – a shaman of the hills and a vigilante bent on justice. We have been performing at home (Kansas City MO) and on the road for about 3 years. Our live shows have been described as being intense. a freaking fantastic musical journey. Creepy and honest. It’s storytelling through music. Doom blues. Screaming electric guitars. All accompanied by suits and masks.”
