So the majority of PHILTHY’s recent live highlights have been a bit (maybe more than a bit) on the abrasive and subversive side, from the post-riot Grrrl of The Coathaners; Dennis Lyxzen’s new, new wave outfit for spouting highly-danceable radical leftist propaganda; or hardcore critical darlings’ Perfect Pussy’s 15-minutes spent tearing the guts out of the First Unitarian Church.  However, we also often enjoy things on the lighter side… sonically speaking, that is.  And this Saturday, May 3rd, Boot & Saddle is hosting a brilliantly delightful one-two punch of whimsical indie pop.  Headlining the evening is Nashville-based folk songstress Katie Herzig, whose currently touring behind her fifth studio LP, Walk Through Walls, which dropped last month and is proving to be her dreamiest release yet.  And opening the evening is Elizabeth Ziman, aka Elizabeth & The Catapult, a Brooklyn indie popper who has re-defined the word “quirky” over the past five years, while also churning out at least a dozen ballads that could easily save your life.  She’s currently supporting her third LP, Like It Never Happened, her most sincerely straightforward effort.  While these ladies may both boast a bevy of songs that prove to be ten-ton-trucks of existentialism, their charm is more than enough to keep you looking for the brighter side of things.
