Once upon a time in 1996 Ontario, Canada, two 14-year-olds met at an after-school gymnastics class and (naturally) formed an all-girl metal band named Kittie. By 1999, the band had a hit single with “Brackish” (from the album Spit), and went on tour supporting Slipknot. While Kittie has become somewhat of a revolving door over the years, with members drifting in and out (some even went on to complete high school), sisters Mercedes and Morgan Lander stuck with it, designing the clothing line “Poisoned Black” on the side. On tour to promote 2009’s In the Black, Kittie is generating some serious buzz (they’re a favorite on MTV 2’s Headbanger’s Ball). Even if you’re not a metalhead, Kittie’s electrified growl-and-screech fests are a true spectacle and will leave you wondering who let the cats out. $17.50-$22, 7pm, Scout Bar, 19314 US Hwy 281 N. #110, San Antonio, scoutbar.com
