Belushi Speed Ball, the local thrash metal rockers known for their wild costume-and-special-effects-filled concerts, are toning it down for one night. This time, they’re playing a free 20-minute-max acoustic show just for cats. (Any humans in attendance must be 21 and up, but cats of all ages are welcome.) Nothing more to it. It’s literally a quiet concert for cats, without “catnip or typical Belushi messes.” All cats must be in a cat carrier. Frontman Vinny Castellano’s beloved cat Stella will be part of the audience — it’d be odd if she weren’t, given that the band released a two-disc album named after her last year.
