The Internet Cat Video Festival is coming to Ann Arbor at the end of September.  If you're like us, you have probably caught yourself watching a hysterical cat video on your newsfeed while you should be working. We just finished watching a tabby cat chase a roll of toilet paper into a screen door before sitting down to write this. From cat breading to Grumpy Cat, this fest has something for every feline film enthusiast.

Curated by the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, the original Cat Video Festival is in its 4th year, growing annually to fill a stadium with 13,000+ people. While the Ann Arbor extension of the fest will be considerably smaller, just over 600 RSVP’s, it has already exceeded the capacity of the North Quad venue, Space 2435.

The screening will be 75 minutes in length and highlight the top rated, viral cat videos from around the world wide web. The reel features about 100 videos that were nominated by the public in the categories of Comedy, Drama, Animated, Musical, Action, Vintage, and Documentary.

Cat costumes are encouraged, crazy cat ladies are welcome. Come early for pre-screening CAT-tivities in the North Quad Courtyard.

We looked for a cat video to embed in this article and couldn't decide on just one, so here's an entire YouTube playlist. Say goodbye to your afternoon……

Space at the event is limited so get there early to guarantee your spot.
Due to the large response, the film will be a screening simultaneously in Space 2435, the Media Gateway, and the Language Resource Center.

6:30-8:30pm: North Quad Courtyard Activities
8:30-10pm: Screening in Space 2435
Space 2435- 105 S. State Street, Ann Arbor

REVIEW: Gregg Allman’s Doleful Final Album Southern Blood

Posthumous albums sometimes land with such a proximity to the particular artist’s passing that, like humans’ ability to see light from burnt-out stars, it’s often difficult to recognize the long-flickering light’s transience, much less accept it.  Paralleling this phenomenon, Gregg Allman’s final album, Southern Blood, is a sonically robust collection of orchestral folk-rock driven by twangy
