If you’re in the mood for something a bit darker, Catskill Mountain-natives the Felice Brothers are stopping by the Black Cat’s mainstage tonight. Their latest album, Celebration, Florida, which the AV Club says sounds “like a preacher in a whorehouse zigzags thrillingly off-course,” came out this May. You can listen to some of their tracks here. Tickets ($18) can be purchased through Ticket Alternative. Doors open at 8 PM.
