The ladies of Catnaps reunite tonight at KungFu Necktie with solo projects
Twee pop band Catnaps took a permanent rest last spring, but that doesn’t mean the members have stopped playing music altogether. Front ladies of the band Adrienne Gold and Carolyn Haynes are both taking on new, individual projects. Gold’s Tender Vision and Haynes’ Ghost Gum will play together tonight at Kung Fu Necktie along with Forbidden Rooms, made up of members from Ladies Auxiliary, and Humble Fires from D.C.
Tender Vision and Ghost Gum are new bands to the punk scene, but not collectively. Aside from Gold, Tender Vision is made up of members from punk band Address. But tonight, they’ll play their first Philly show.
Meanwhile, Ghost Gum includes members of indie punk band Glocca Morra. With so many creative minds within each of the projects, any devout listener of the bands can easily pick out the Catnaps/Address/Glocca Morra influences.
Ghost Gum’s bandcamp, currently filled with four demos, features distinctive Glocca guitar slides and punky riffs while keeping Haynes’ twinkling, indiepop sound. Tender Vision currently has two songs on their bandcamp: “Just Kill Me,” an original released just this January, and an experimental, spacey cover of the Beatles’ “I Wanna Hold Your Hand,” which according to the band’s Facebook page, will be available for free download for just one week.
Hang out with these Philly-famous punkers tonight. The 21+ show will start at 8 p.m. and costs $7 at the door.
