The Run Down - Sunday February 10, 2008

So it's Sunday and you find yourself looking for some not-so-ordinary entertainment. Well the Black Cat has that for you ten fold. Brian Carpenter's Beat Circus has come to town with his brand of post-cabaret/new weird americana music. Beat Circus' songs are based on factual people and events from the turn of the century Coney Island Circus of the same name. So if you want to witness bizarre, yet oddly entertaining historical music, head on down to the Black Cat tonight. You'll also find the genre transcending band, The Cassettes there. They play rockabilly/CCR-esque/blues/folk/indie rock. They're a good fit with Beat Circus and should prove to be a great event. If you aren't quite into that scene, maybe you would enjoy Liars and no Age playing the First Unitarian Church in Philly. Enjoy the last day of the weekend while you can. Monday lurks.
