About The Event
The members of New Orleans-based LOOSE CATTLE have separately, or collectively, made music with the likes of Alex Chilton, Bob Mould, Allen Touissaint, Pete Townshend, Frank Black, The Iguanas, The Breeders, Goldfinger, The Whiskey Gentry, Tav Falco, and Teenage Fanclub. At one time or another in their separate lives, they’ve won a Grammy Award, two Tony Awards, multiple Big Easy and Best of The Beat Awards, and shown up on Broadway, in film and television, and on glossy magazine pages. They’ve also had side hustles as actors, teachers, functional medicine practitioners, podcast hosts, social justice advocates, LGBTQ activists, and very tired parents.
Fresh on the heels of their Jazz Fest debut and recent shows opening for Lucinda Williams on tour, band founders and double-barreled frontpersons Kimberly Kayeand Michael Cerveris hammer their differences out in LOOSE CATTLE, welding their songwriting to a shared love of X, The Mekons, Johnny and June Carter Cash, Dolly and Porter, Neil Young, George and Tammy, John Prine, and Drive By Truckers. Their unholy marriage of blood harmonies and chiming guitars over the soulful, swampy rhythm section of Renè Coman and Doug Garrison is stitched together with Rurik Nunan’s keening, fiery fiddle.
It's Americana music for the people America keeps forgetting.
