Imagine Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan singing with members of the Stray Cats and the Clash, only more intense, and you've got Nervous Cabaret. Elyas "KiD [SiC]" Khan's Pakistan-trained voice belts out songs about getting drunk, falling out of love and selling out over endlessly evocative coronet by Fred Wight, fierce contrabass (Matt Morandi), drums (Brian Geltner) and now they've added a second drummer. You're guaranteed to both dance and cry within half an hour.

Nervous Cabaret's music can go from bawdy to euphoric and even ecstatic... very, very danceable music that's very emotionally rooted. There's a lot going on but it never fails to make you move. It has a real hardcore swing to it.
