Australia’s brassiest band, The Cat Empire has found a warm welcome in Montreal ever since they first busted it out at the Jazz Fest a few years ago. The popular ska meets jazz band has been touring on its 2013 release Steal the Light for some time now, but every time they come to town is a party. The core group is often accompanied by a group of brass musicians called The Empire Horns, so get ready to hear that trumpet play!
The Cat Empire is at Metropolis (59 St Catherine E) on April 10. 8:30 p.m.
