Pet Theories is releasing their first album just in time for CAKE weekend. The band, which features Allison Felus on vocals and keyboard bass, Tony Trigilio on drums, and CAKE panels coordinator Brian Cremins on guitar and vocals, will be playing the CAKE after-party at The Observatory onSaturday, June 6th. Their album, which features a fabulous cover by Chicago cartoonist Amara Leipzig, draws on a variety of influences, from Krautrock and show tunes to 60s folkrock and psychedelia (with a little Modernist poetry and Bronze Age comic books thrown into the mix).
They’ll have CDs for sale, along with more of Amara’s work, at table 78. The band would also be happy to trade for zines or minicomics! At the show, Allison will also have copies of her new zine, Satan Is My Father, a collection of essays about forgotten and imaginary bands.
See you at the after-party!
