Kitty Little & Mates of State

Local Prog-Pop-Punk rockers Kitty Little opened this saturday at Valentines for the organ and drums duo of the Mates of State. It was my first time seeing Kitty Little a band of much local repute who have been around for about two years. Their are a solid punk band lead by Matto (apprently he only has one name) who's all energy and talent. His high pitch classic pop punk vocals remind me of some of my high school favorites like Millencolin or Lagwagon. Their songs range from really interesting peices with influences ranging from the Pixies to Coheed and Cambria to more straight pop punk songs that I found a little bit less interesting.
Mates of State were awesome playing songs both from their most recent Bring it Back and their older cd (but my personal favorite) Team Boo. I'm not gonna write a review of the Mates of State, they were awesome and if you want to know more about them there a million reviews all over the internet. Instead I would like to mention h0w cool it is that Valentines is starting to get more and more awesome national indie bands stopping in on tour. Both Mates of State and The Hold Steady who stopped there a few months ago packed valentines upstairs with 300+ people. Just noticing, hopefully this is a trend that will continue.
