Caterwaul noise rock fest shares poster, lineup ft Chat Pile, Cherubs, Child Bite, and more
Official press release:
Scheduled for May 26-29th in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Caterwaul 2023 is a 4-day affair celebrating the spirit of "independent-minded, iconoclastic, noisy music" in all its forms. The second annual installment of the festival, Caterwaul 2023 will unfold across stages at two revered Minneapolis venues: Palmer's Bar and Mortimer's Bar.
Highlights include: Bay Area punk legends Flipper (with Cows frontman Shannon Selberg on vocals), Texas noise rock royalty Cherubs, the US debut of Ireland's Hands Up Who Wants To Die, and a litany of other greats, including Chat Pile, Djunah, and dozens more.
Caterwaul co-founder Rainer Fronz has stated:
"The philosophy behind Caterwaul is to try and build a name that can be used as a standard... With Caterwaul, you know you will get under-the-radar, cutting-edge music made with passion and commitment."
The poster artwork is a collaboration between artists Dale Flattum and Zak Sally. Flattum, working under the name TOOTH, has created posters for Faith No More, The Melvins, and Mötley Crüe, to name but a few. Sally is a renowned, Eisner Award-nominated comic artist. As musicians themselves, Flattum and Sally did time in Steel Pole Bath Tub and Low, respectively, and their current project, THE HAND, will appear as part of Sunday's lineup at Caterwaul 2023.
Screenprinted posters will be available for sale at the festival.
