Dr_Caterwaul_BV_010915_Twin_Peaks_WebDr. Caterwaul’s Cadre of Clairvoyant Claptraps, joined by The Cygnet Sisters, play the music of Kurt Weill at Best Video Performance Space on Thursday, June 11. The music starts at 8 PM and the cover is $5.

Dr. Caterwaul’s Cadre of Clairvoyant Claptraps–composed of Michael Tepper on upright bass, Adam Matlock on accordion and vocals; Michael Paolucci on percussion; Chris Cretella on electric guitar and Brian Slattery on violin, banjo, trombone and vocals–plays as much music as it’s able to: blues and murder ballads, Eastern European folk, traditional music from North and South America, tango, swing, classical music, and the songs of contemporary songwriters (including Matlock), using the influences of the music they love to create fluid, improvised arrangements.
