SATURDAY NIGHT’S ALIVE IN NORTH PARK
PURR-FECT VENUES—Two great events tonight in North Park.
Kitten With a Whip (not to be confused with the Ann-Margaret 1964 flick of the same name) will be playing their alternative rock music and more at Bird Park Saturday, TONIGHT July 14th, from 5:30 to 7:30 pm. Judging from the huge turnout for the previous Bird Park Concert Series on June 30, we suggest getting there early and stake out your turf. Bird Park is at the southwest corner of 28th and Upas Sts. in North Park.
Kitten With a Whip is an energetic alternative rock band led by all-female band veteran Audrey Moesch. Formed in San Diego in 1995 by Audrey and then lead guitarist Mark Cover, its sound melds eclectic grooves of funk and world music to rock and progressive grunge to get its message across.
There’s something for everyone, as singer/guitarist Audrey composes such rousing, relationship survival anthems as “I Believe in Me” and angst-filled (6/4-timed) rocker “Monster” to the happy dance tunes of world beat-inspired “JuJu” and Latin-influenced “To Be.” Her influences include The Beatles, The Police, U2, The Pretenders and other female singer/songwriters like Alanis Morissette, as well as dada and Pearl Jam.
Completing the lineup are experienced jammers of any style: rock and jazz bassist Laura Payne, Los Angeles Academy of Music grad lead guitarist Eddie Kolenski and heavy rock and groove drum veteran and teacher Rick Favale.
The group has performed at such top clubs as the Belly Up Tavern, the Casbah, and 4th and B and major events like the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon and the 1998 Super Bowl Festival at downtown San Diego.
