Run With The Kittens will change your life.
Run With The Kittens are a musical high wire act that is

Witnessing their live show will illicit laughter, disbelief, fleeting anger and finally, a sense of relief.
You will simultaneously feel ripped off and blessed.

sonic assault at The Cameron House; their achingly
beautiful, darkly comedic, deceptively simple, high-octane
display of irreverent gobbledygook lasts from 10pm until
The CD release to their self-titled debut included balloon dresses, the Canadian Opera Company, big league brewery endorsements and a taxidermy deer head. Those lucky enough to be in the capacity crowd were left pelted.
