Concert - Raleigh North Carolina - Saturday, May 31st

And you can tell people one day - "Yeah, I was there when . . ."

So, what is this all about? Kat Robichaud was a contestant on the TV show, The Voice, and was one of the Top 10 finalists for season 5, fall of 2013. She had previously been in the band, The Design, which has disbanded. They produced two albums, Laziest Perfectionist and Young America; you can listen to samplings at and on iTunes, and other places I am sure.

After the Voice she started a Kickstarter project (a crowd-sourcing-funding website) to record and produce her first solo album. You can see more about the project on her Kickstarter page. And yes, I confess, I am one of the 880 people.

One of the promises she made as part of the funding program was if her second stretch goal was achieved, she would be having a concert in Raleigh, NC on Saturday May 31st. So was borne An Evening with Kat Robichaud. Included in the show will be all of the songs from her new album, which she has just finished recording. Much more about the album and concert is here on her Facebook page. Tickets are like $10 and $12 - cheap at twice the price.

Obviously being in Las Vegas I am not going to be able to attend a Saturday night concert in Raleigh, NC but would suggest that you do, I think it is going to be really awesome. It will include a couple other performers/bands, a costume party with awards for best costumes and a number of vaudevillian acts, both on stage and roaming the floor. The entire concert/show will be streamed live on Youtube, so if you are going to be there, let me know. Maybe I will see you on Youtube.

(Unfortunately, I can't make the lovely little Box play bars anymore)

That is one of her more mellow love songs, but you can find more of her music, more raucous rock on her Youtube channel.

So, if you are anywhere on the east coast, or even NY or FL, head on over and have a great weekend in Raleigh NC which I understand is a beautiful place and a great place to spend a weekend if you are going to a Saturday night concert. And if you aren't in the east coast somewhere but are flexible and mobile, go ahead and go anyway.

And if you are inflexible like me and can't make it, but find the whole idea interesting, join me on Youtube that Saturday night, May 31st!!
