Bonjour from Kitten!

Hello everyone! I am so excited about our show; if yesterday was any sign, we are certainly off to a good start, and hopefully will get better acclimated with the Pittsburgh indiepop scene
(I have high hopes about its existence... you're out there, somewhere, popsters, and I will find you!)

Our first show was mainly working out our vibe; I discovered that I happen to like electropop more than I ever thought I did, and Emily supplied some great dancey beats and indiepop. Most things were Americo/Anglo for the first show, but we definitely plan to mix it up....the goal: consistently "beat and upbeat."

In case you're curious, here was Monday's playlist (albums in parentheses):

If you have any requests, the best thing to do is post a note to the blog; we check it daily. If you are a local band, please also post here. We may make a myspace page for the show; we'll let you know if we do. Then you too(!) can follow the exploits of Emily Fear and Kitten as they create their virtual footprint on "teh internets."
