zzzzzzzzzzzzzz....

That's about how we feel after that OUT OF CONTROL Record Store Day!
That's what we call a HUGE success! Thank you to everyone who came out! Whether you were one of the folks in line at 12:30 AM to make sure you got the RSD release that you wanted, or just stopped in throughout the day to catch one of the great local musicians that graced our stage... We REALLY appreciate all of the love and support! The first Record Store Day at Square Cat Vinyl was an unprecedented success!!

APRIL 25 | 7:00 PM
Matt Cox at Square Cat Vinyl
Matt Cox is making his way across the Midwest with a stop at Square Cat Vinyl! This Omaha, NE native will fit right in on our stage with his country/folk sound. I think it's safe to say we'll all still be recovering from Record Store Day, so Matt will be a great way to ease back into some shows here.

Bubbles Brown is a roots-rock duo by way of Chicago. Their music is dirty, gritty and 100% raw, influenced by their land and souls. Using only a guitar, washboard, sock cymbal, assorted percussion and a suitcase bass drum -the duo and their lean, archaic setup evoke the homespun, kitchen-sink aesthetic of rural, pre-war blues and country, while blending into it an aggressive and modern electricity to create a sound at-once both nostalgic and distinctly progressive.
