This week's show features a long-awaited chance for me to meet the Twin Cats, a band I have seen play live several times, and who is talked about as a major influence on many of our former guests (Shadyside Allstars, Blue Moon Revue, Original State of Mind, et al). I was also warned ahead of time that this band can get a little crazy at times. They definitely live up to that reputation. Somewhere in the midst of the wisecracks and wild stories there is an interview, but it's probably the least interesting part of this show.
In just a few short years, the Twin Cats have gone from busking in Broad Ripple, to playing festivals such as 10KLF, Summer Camp, and the F.U.N.K. Festival. During that time they have shared the bill with some of the top touring acts in the country including The Greyboy Allstars, The Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Rusted Root, and Here Come the Mummies. When not hobknobbing with the bigwigs, they can still be found playing most of the great small venues here in town and are definitely worth checking out if you get the chance.
