The Trash Cats

The Trash Cats call their stage show “cat rock.” Keyboard player Matt Sjelin and acoustic guitar player Sean Mahoney make music that’s light and graceful, colorful and cool, and purrs like a five-disk CD changer. The duo has created a collection of paw-pounding originals and likes to scratch claws on occasional 1990s alt-rock covers like Radiohead’s “Creep.” Most of all a Trash Cats show is fun—like chasing a Modest Mouse around the room or howling in harmony with a bunch of other strays loaded on catnip and Whiskas.
