Join the Cleveland Scene Press Club. Because No News is Bad News.


Thursday, July 3, at the Beachland Ballroom.


These jam-band newbies came together two years ago as a sort of rootsy bluegrass group in Pennsylvania. A trio of Clevelanders joined a little later, and Cabinet took on a sharper rock edge. Still, with fiddle and mandolin players in the band, there are still plenty of bluegrass sounds on its self-titled debut album and onstage. And Cabinet isn't afraid to freak out from time to time: The echo-laden "Carry Me in a Bucket" is a psychedelic tour de force, where voices play against manic mandolin strums. Live, the guys dip into flights of improv, stretching songs as far as their fans will let them. When the mood is right and people are dancing, that's a good thing indeed.
