Concert preview: Sleepy Kitty adopts a cinematic approach to Projection Room

Andy Downing, Columbus Alive

St. Louis art-rock duo Sleepy Kitty - Paige Brubeck provides lead vocals, jagged guitar and occasional keyboard, while Evan Sult chips in on drums and provides sporadic backing vocals - adopts a cinematic approach to its latest long-player Projection Room. It's a mindset that extends from the tracklisting (things kick off with "Opening Scene") to the songs themselves, which play like vignettes from a docudrama complete with love scenes (the swooning, '60s girl-group flavored "All I Do Is Dream of You") and robberies (the car theft central to "Hold Yr Ground").

Marcus Alan Ward, Ravenhill and the Original Soundtrack open the show.
