July 11 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

The rock supergroup Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young (alias CSNY) played their second gig at the Woodstock festival, almost fifty years ago. Within 12 months, they had split up - but not before they recorded Déjà Vu, their first album as a quartet (and their last for almost two decades).

RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE. A CAT Club presentation. Tickets on sale 14th June.

August 8 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

The CAT presents a long playing vinyl record. RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE - the eponymous debut album. Probably the first album to successfully merge the seemingly disparate sounds of rap and heavy metal, Rage Against the Machine's self-titled debut was groundbreaking enough when released in 1992, but many would argue that it has yet to be surpassed in terms of influence and sheer brilliance -- though countless bands have certainly tried.
