St. Louis Band Sleepy Kitty Becomes 'Laser Kitty' - For One Night Only

St. Louis indie rock duo Sleepy Kitty is known for mixing music with visual art.  Which makes sense, as Paige Brubeck and Evan Sult are graphic artists as well as musicians.

But they’re taking art in a new direction with “Laser Kitty” on January 11 at the Saint Louis Science Center’s Planetarium. Laserist Brian Wirthlin will be performing a live laser show to the duo’s forthcoming album, “Projection Room.”

It’s the fulfillment of a long-held dream for drummer Evan Sult, who used to go to laser shows in high school and college.

Audience members lie on mats on the floor to view the laser show, giving it a “beach party” feel, “like a fragment of 70s rock culture,” Sult said.
