Michael Cerveris and Loose Cattle Play Joe's Pub, 7/15
Tony Award winner Michael Cerveris, currently appearing on Broadway in EVITA, will play Joe's Pub this Sunday at 9:30pm with his band, Loose Cattle.
Loose Cattle were named after a country road sign...and sound that way. Like a night in a neglected pasture corralling Ferdinand the Bull, Babe the Blue Ox and mad cow disease, evenings with the Cattle are an unruly ramble through classic Carter Family and Louvin Brothers songs, contemporary tunes about guns and gasoline, and mashups that mark Dolly Parton and Cee-Lo Green with the same glowing branding iron.
Michael Cerveris (actor and former Bob Mould sideman hailing from West Virginia) and Kimberly Kaye (Garden State native and ex New Direxion trumpetress) are duo vocalists in the Buddy and Julie Miller/Civil Wars vein, riding both Cerveris' original songs and crowd-pleasing covers with able-bodied ranch hands Gabriel Caplan (Naomi Shelton & Gospel Queens), Lorenzo Wolf (The Lisps) and Eddie Zweiback (Losers' Lounge).
Tickets are $20 and can be purchased here.
