Catch a Show at Cat's Cradle: Speedy Ortiz / Krill / Two Inch Astronaut
Speedy Ortiz is an indie band from Northampton, MA. The band originated in 2011 as Sadie Dupuis's solo project while she was teaching songwriting at a summer camp, recording her own material using her laptop. Two releases resulted from this solo endeavor, the Cop Kicker EP, and the LP The Death of Speedy Ortiz.
Artists of all genres, from Nirvana and Iggy Pop to John Mayer and Trampled By Turtles, have taken this stage. If that doesn't have you amped up, don't worry, they squeeze in plenty of local artists and have become the go-to spot for album release parties in the area.
The standing-room only venue has an intimate and grungy vibe that allows you to see acts that usually take the bigger stages in a smaller setting. Grab a PBR at the bar in the back and get ready to groove. The bar is cash only, so if you're planning to imbibe come prepared—and while you're at it buy an iconic t shirt!
