Neyla Pekarek (Formerly of The Lumineers) 4/13

The Lumineers cellist, Neyla Pekarek, first discovered Rattlesnake Kate in college. A frontierswoman who singlehandedly killed 140 snakes as they surrounded her and her son, Rattlesnake Kate then proceeded to make a flapper-style dress, necklace, and shoes out of the skin. Pekarek found out about this true story at Greeley, Colo.’s History Museum, where the snakeskin apparel is on display. Fascinated, the cellist and classically trained vocalist used Rattlesnake Kate as a muse for her debut solo album, Rattlesnake. Go back in time to rural early 20th century life on Saturday when Pekarek’s tour makes a stop at Cattivo. Previously scheduled for the Thunderbird Cafe, all tickets bought for that venue will be honored.
