The RFT Music Awards Party is tonight at 7 p.m. at the Firebird. In addition to the announcement of all this year's winners, the evening will feature performances by 18andCounting, Prince Ea and Sleepy Kitty. The latter has something unique planned: Rather than play a traditional set, Sleepy Kitty will be playing the song "Seventeen" off its upcoming debut Infinity City as a seventeen minute guitar relay with three of St. Louis' finest shredders making guest appearances: Jason Hutto of Warm Jets USA, Kevin Bachmann of Troubadour Dali and Gabe Doiron, formerly of Old Lights. Listen to the studio version of the song below.
"Seventeen" by Sleepy Kitty
Sleepy Kitty drummer/vocalist Evan Sult says the group of guests are, "three of our all-time favorite guitarists in St. Louis," and adds: "What's a guitar relay? Well, you'll know it when you see it!"
Infinity City is (finally) out on July 12th through Euclid Records. You can pre-order that sucker today, if you'd like. Half the album was recorded by Hutto, including "Seventeen."
Again, this Awards Party is free. See you tonight.
