Event details

Kansas City band American Catastrophe sounds a bit like a scene in a David Lynch movie where something bad is about to happen: woozy guitars pick out minor chords, cymbals crash, and a commanding baritone chants "hang 'em high." The macabre dirge evokes the moody pathos of performers like Nick Cave, Tom Waits, and Marc Ribot. All this and a woozy glaze of reverb glistens like a freshly sharpened pitchfork on the group's album "Broken Bone Choir," which they'll perform selections from tonight along with new material.
