Il Gato Image

Il Gato is an indie-baroque-folk band from San Francisco, California. Band members include guitarist/harmonica/vocalist Daimian Holiday Scott, pianist/trumpeter/vocalist Matthew Souther, upright bassist/vocalist Andrew Thomas, drummer/vocalist Johnny Major and violinist/trumpeter Annabel Ibanez.

“With a pop sensibility, their sound incorporates folk with a reggae down beat, harmonious rap, lavish modern-classical instrumentation, and emotionally charged vocals with a floating delivery.  Common associations include Modest Mouse, Beirut, Neutral Milk Hotel, and Arcade Fire.” -il gato

Their first independent release, “All these Slippery Things” debuted in July 2010, and was recorded and mixed at Tiny Telephone and mastered by Roger Seibel at SAE Mastering ( Broken Social Scene, Death Cab for Cutie, Bon Iver, The Dodos, Cat Power, The Decemberists, Modest Mouse, etc.).

Their musical style is embellished by full horn and string sections, piano, upright bass, drums, banjo, accordion, harmonica and melodica, hence putting the “baroque” in indie-folk. They have performed with numerous bands such as the Castanets, Tom Brosseau, The Felice Brothers, Frank Black of the Pixies (almost), The Ferocious Few, {{{sunset}}}, The Shants, Annie Bacon, Wolf & Crow.

Our crew  has been working overtime this weekend to set up one of the most outstanding stage designs of all time. We are very excited to have Il Gato in out studio tonight and to be able to share it with you! Tune in tonight to BAMM.tv/live to check out Il Gato Live at 8pm PST!
