About This Event

Sleepy Kitty began as an experimental sound project for a class when frontwoman Paige Brubeck was enrolled as an undergraduate at School of The Art Institute Chicago in 2007. Brubeck and Evan Sult (ex-Harvey Danger) began layering field recordings of the "L" and Wicker Park street poets with '60s style harmonies and crashing drums. Sult was playing drums in the math-rock indie-pop band Bound Stems at the time, and Brubeck was playing guitar in the girl group trio Stiletto Attack, but as the two bonded over Pavement and The Fall, they began writing their own post-punk, show-tune inflected songs and Sleepy Kitty went from side project to full on band.

Now two self-released EPs and a full length album titled, Infinity City, later, and support slots with the likes of Neon Trees, Dresdon Dolls, Deerhoof and Chuck Berry, "the duo plays up the '90s rock while still keeping it fresh." (Paste Magazine).

Their live show is a whirlwind: Brubeck loops her vocals live, crafting walls of girl-group harmonies above the tube-driven blast of her vintage Super Reverb. Sult plays at the edge of the stage with her-when he can contain himself to his drum throne.
