Show Lineup

Kat and the Hurricane

(Madison, WI)
Genre: Pop

Kat and the Hurricane is an award-winning genre- and gender-bending indie-pop/synth-rock trio from Madison, Wisconsin. Lead singer/guitarist Kat Farnsworth (they/them), keyboardist/vocalist Benjamin Rose (they/them), and drummer Alex Nelson (they/them) deliver a unique blend of pop and haunting indie rock they affectionately refer to as “Sad Lesbian Music.” 

A trio of all-queer and all-trans musicians, they write predominantly about maneuvering through a world that does not find value in their experiences or community. Themes of struggling with poor mental health, navigating difficult relationships, and finding resilience in moments of isolation are threaded through the band’s discography. Acutely aware of how little queer and trans musicians were positively represented in the music industry when they were growing up, Kat and the Hurricane hope to be that representation for a new generation of queer and trans musicians – and shift the music industry from within to better center marginalized artists and their experiences.
