It's not April Fool's Day anymore, right?
Because in news you can't make up, some real life, music making acro-cats are coming to Tampa's Stageworks Theatre in May. Yup, according to a press release, Tuna and the Rock Cats are the only all-cat band in the entire world. The lineup apparently includes Oz on guitar, Asti on drums, Nue on keys, and a three new members — Ahi, Albacore and Buggles — on cowbell, woodblocks and trumpet (they must be polydactyl).
Amidst all the pussy cats is at least one cock — "Cluck Norris," biatch — who plays the tambourine.
If you don't believe what you're reading, then check out Colbert, The Guardian and Vice who've already caught on to the hype. Non musical types will be happy to know that there are also Guinness World Record holding cats (longest cat jump), skateboarding cats and rope walking kitties, too.
The human ringleader on site is animal trainer and rescuer Samantha Martin, who has found happy homes for over 200 homeless cats and kittens and trained her cats with clickers (just how we train our children over here at CL — JK, no one on edit has a kid that we know of).
Performances happen on May 16, 17 and 18 with shows happening at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Tickets are $22-$39, and more information is available via local.cltampa.com.
