Cat's Cradle Welcomes The Greeting Committee and MisterWives

This Saturday, June 17, Cat's Cradle has put together a lineup that makes all other lineups jealous.

The Greeting Committee are an indie pop group based out of Kansas City, Missouri. Formed in 2014 by high school friends Addison Sartino (vocals), Brandon Yangmi (guitar), Pierce Turcotte (bass), and Austin Fraser (drums), the quartet attracted the attention of local radio personality Lazlo Geiger who agreed to manage them. Following the release of their debut EP, It's Not All That Bad, things began to move quickly for the young group and a deal was soon struck with Los Angeles-based label Harvest Records who re-released the EP in October 2015.

MisterWives are an indie pop band based in New York City. Formed in 2012 around the core trio of singer/keyboardist Mandy Lee, bassist William Hehir, and drummer Etienne Bowler, they have an unusual sound that combines elements of synth pop, folk, and indie rock, falling somewhere between the quirky dance-pop of No Doubt and the pastoral folk-rock of Of Monsters and Men.

After adding guitarist Marc Campbell and multi-instrumentalist Dr. Blum, the group began recording its debut EP, Reflections, which was released on New York indie Photo Finish Records in early 2014. With just one EP and some demos to their name, MisterWives have garnered much buzz among major music publications like Interview, Paste, and MTV Buzzworthy.

Their debut LP Our Own House was released in February 2015. Head out to the Cat's Cradle this Saturday to hear their newest album, Connect the Dots. Be aware, this show is sold out, so if you didn't snag some tix, it's time to be best friends with someone that did.
