Review: Buzz band Kitten goes wild at Stubb's

Chloe Chaidez has the energy of Tina Turner and the precision of the Tasmanian Devil. That sums up everything the lead singer of Los Angeles buzz band Kitten did at Stubb’s on Tuesday night — the spirit was unflaggingly willing, but the flesh sometimes just a tad weak. Chaidez, the ...
