Watch Catbite play songs from ‘Nice One’ on Left of the Dial Live
Fans of ska music no longer have to dig up records from the past to get their fix now that Philly’s Catbite is on the scene. Back in July, the high-energy foursome recorded a live session for indie music blog Left of the Dial, which is available to stream now. The almost forty-minute long session is a special treat for fans of the band, and will give newcomers a taste of what Catbite has to offer.
Left of the Dial formed in 2020 with the mission to “help musicians keep creating music and [connect] with their fans.” Produced by local musician and audio engineer Kitzy, Left of the Dial Live is no stranger to the Philadelphia music scene. The series also features sessions with folk singer/songwriter Erin Fox and indie rockers The Tisburys, among others. For more about the renaissance of ska straight from the “cat’s” mouth, Left of the Dial also recorded a podcast interview with Catbite’s singer Brit Luna and guitarist Tim Hildebrand (listen here).
The neo-two tone group sold out their record release show for Nice One at PhilaMOCA last August, and are back with two more dates this fall, including opening for Low Cut Connie at The Fillmore October 14th and Nathan Gray (of Boysetsfire) at MilkBoy November 5th. More information and ticket links can be found at XPN’s Concert Calendar.
