Live Review from Underground 83:
This was 22 Cats third performance at The Underground and they did not disappoint. Along with their great fan base, their catchy melodies were driven forward by unique instrumental solos. Their confidence in a live performance setting was clear, easily commanding the stage and audience. Their grunge style provided a darker sound than the previous bands, with their vocals giving way to the energy of their performance. Where they are most successful is in keeping the audience on their toes, shifting tempos and sounds effortlessly. Having first played at Underground 8, their success at Underground 83 shows there are no signs of them slowing down anytime in the future.

Live Review from Underground 30:
A schizophrenic cocktail of widely varied pieces and fragments of music, they all seem to know what they’re doing (but they’re the only ones). the music easily carries you with it into their crazy-land, which is admittedly a pretty nice and interesting place. At times it’s hard to tell if you’re on a carousel or visiting a freak show. One thing is for sure, they’re highly captivating. I keep wondering what could possibly follow what they just did, and I keep finding out, much to my amazement. It’s quite rare for a band to be so unpredictable – bored is the last thing you’d ever be when they’re around. I just can’t figure them out, which only multiplies their appeal.
Live Review from Underground 8:
22Cats, I saw them last year and offered to review their set for Underground 8. It was like a flashback to Rockit for me. Polished, uptempo and tight. Yin on bass must be one of the best bass players in town. 22Cats packed out Venue with their fans. As their set progressed, the band made full use of their space and saved some Hendrix-style theatrics for the finale. This is exactly the band I want to see at an Underground event.
