Cat Power comes to Eugene with new music from her upcoming album, ‘Covers’! Indie-rock, blues, electronics and more are blended together when this one-of-a-kind artist experiments on stage. Cat Power plays McDonald Theatre on February 5th! Don’t miss it!

A one-of-a-kind artist unafraid to reveal her inner self and follow her muse in different directions, Cat Power’s Chan Marshall pens literate and emotionally revealing songs and performs them with strength and fragility. Her earliest albums, such as 1996’s What Would the Community Think, reflected the influence of New York’s experimental rock scene. As time went on, however, the folk, blues, and soul music she was raised on made themselves known on 1998’s Moon Pix and 2006’s The Greatest, which featured performances by Memphis soul legends. As Marshall continued to experiment, adding electronics on 2012’s Sun and releasing one of her starkest albums yet with 2018’s Wanderer, she established herself as one of the 21st century’s most acclaimed singer/songwriters and paved the way for like-minded artists such as Mitski, Snail Mail, and Angel Olsen.

Chan (pronounced “Shawn”) Marshall was born Charlyn Marie Marshall in Atlanta, Georgia on January 21, 1972. Marshall’s father was a blues musician, but her parents divorced when she was young, and she spent much of her nomadic childhood moving back and forth between her father, her mother, and her grandfather. While Marshall’s parents didn’t encourage her to play music early on, she wrote her first song when she was in fourth grade, and immersed herself in her stepfather’s record collection, dominated by soul and classic rock. When Marshall was 16, she moved in with her father in Atlanta, and by 18 she had dropped out of high school and settled on her own. She fell in with a group of experimental indie rock musicians and began jamming with her new friends, initially for fun but eventually playing with several bands before forming a group called Cat Power. The name came from a trucker’s cap emblazoned with “Cat Diesel Power” that Marshall spotted while working at a pizza joint. After streamlining it into a suitable band name, she later took Cat Power as her stage alias, and began earning a reputation on the Atlanta music scene.

    I’d love to see Cat Power because I love her music but when I saw her play 15 or so years ago she could barely get through a song due to stage fright!

    I love Chan so much and would love to see her again after all these years. I haven’t seen her since 2003 in San Francisco when I was 19 and it remains one of my favorite shows. It was hard for her to get through and I appreciated her vulnerability and honesty about it all loving her even more. Her covers are always beautiful and I could listen to her version of sea of love in a dreamy state for the rest of time.

    Last I saw chan was 15 years ago, she taught everyone in the audience how to do a ballet move to get a wedgie out of her…. Naughty bits, she’s fucking rad and a legend. I hope I win, but whoever does is gonna have a blast

    It’s been so long since we have seen any live music I would love to win tickets to Cat Power! I’ve been a lifelong fan of her unique style and have turned my partner into a fan as well. Fingers crossed! And thank you for the opportunity.
