Alt-rock power-duo Local H are bringing Pack Up The Cats on the road starting in September to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the iconic concept album. The album, which was produced by Queen’s legendary producer Roy Thomas Baker and included timeless 1990s anthems “All-Right (Oh Yeah)” and “All The Kids Are Right,” solidified Local H as a leader in the alternative music genre, landing at #20 on Spin’s list of the 20 best albums of 1998, #17 on Robert Christgau’s 1998 Dean’s List, and #2 on Chicago Tribune’s list of the best albums of 1998.

Consisting of close to three hours of music (and bonus guest John Haggerty of Naked Raygun and Pegboy as surprise guitarist) Local H will split the evenings into two sets, opening for themselves. On each night of the tour the first set will consist of songs from their complete discography, including tracks ranging from as far back as Ham Fisted and As Good as Dead, into their most current single “Innocents.” Then after a brief intermission, the band will return to the stage for a second set that will feature all 15 tracks of Pack Up The Cats as they appear on the original release.
