Philly indie punks Cayetana have revealed that they're breaking up after three final shows in Boston, Brooklyn, and Philly this August. The band writes:
Back in 2011 the three of us weirdos met at a party in South Philadelphia and decided to start a band. At first we were called The Crimps, then Cayetano and finally settled on Cayetana. We practiced on borrowed equipment in basements for years working our way from one musical goal to the next. Cayetana took us on a wild ride we could have never imagined.
We are so floored and grateful that in a world filled with such wonderful music you all took the time to listen to us. We want to sincerely thank all the people who have come out to shows and shared in this project with us. You all afforded us the ability to play music all over the damn place. We toured with our musical heroes, having a sense of pride we could have never imagined, and made so many wonderful friends along the way.
As we gear up to play these last few shows for the foreseeable future...we want to celebrate the beautiful experience we had together. We hope you will join us.
Love, Augusta Allegra & Kelly
The shows are all with Katie Ellen (ex-Chumped) and happen at Boston's Sinclair on 8/1 with Lilith (tickets), Brooklyn's Rough Trade on 8/2 with Bacchae (tickets), and Philly's Union Transfer on 8/3 with Cave People (tickets). Tickets go on sale Friday (4/19) at 10 AM, and a presale for Philly is underway now (password = scottgetthevan).
UPDATE: The Rough Trade show sold out and got moved to Music Hall of Williamsburg and tickets are back on sale.
During their career, Cayetana released two albums, 2014's Nervous Like Me and 2017's New Kind of Normal, along with a few EPs and a split with Camp Cope. More recently, Cayetana singer Augusta Koch has been playing solo shows and fronting the band Gladie.
