Dead Cat in a Bag | ITA


Dead Cat in a Bag – The band from Turin is deservedly regarded as one of the most interesting and original acts on the Italian music scene. In some ways, their music continues the artistic tradition of legendary songwriters like Tom Waits, Nick Cave, and Leonard Cohen. On the other hand, it also contains a whole catalogue of references to illustrative theatre or film music. The group makes imaginative use of traditional music while also drawing inspiration from folklore and classic literature (the band’s name directly refers to Mark Twain’s The Adventures of Tom Sawyer). Contemporary, louder sounds round out their music, producing a fascinating result. The band’s instrument set consists of violin, accordion, banjo, and well-balanced electronics. Over the last decade, the Italians have shared the stage with performers such as Hugo Race or Bonnie “Prince” Billy. Their Lublin concert is sure to earn them the appreciation of the Different Sounds audience.
