Cat Power Coming To Australia

Put your sister’s best friend’s husband’s boss’s quirky assistant’s iPod on shuffle and you won’t get close to the eclecticism of this year’s Days Like This! festival. Much like their 2009 lineup, 2010’s offering is a delightful mish mash of disparate artists including Micachu & The Shapes, We Have Band, Pivot and Roots Manuva.

But the act we’re most excited to see is Chan Marshall aka Cat Power the fragile folk songstress with a penchant for enchanting everyone within view or breaking down mid-set. To prevent on-stage depression we suggest joining forces with always happy festival mates The Cat Empire thus creating The Cat Power Empire also known as “the worst idea ever”.
