Described as “Local Favorites” by Washington City Paper, Griefcat is comprised of veteran singer-songwriters Louisa Hall and Annie Nardolilli. Annie and Louisa met behind the scenes at a variety show in 2015 and felt an immediate kinship after Annie sang about a Hot Park Ranger, and Louisa about her Barista Boyfriend. They reunited to play the 9:30 club in 2018 and vowed to form a band: Griefcat. They scheduled their first rehearsal in 2019, wrote a song about vaccines and eggrolls, and the rest is (recent) history.
Griefcat’s songs range from hilarious to sincere with a unique sound akin to Flight of the Conchords, mixed with a little Dolly Parton and an indie flair. Griefcat entertains with music about the trials, joys, and tribulations of modern life. As one concert goer said, seeing Griefcat was “the most fun I’ve had since Lizzo”.
