When local artists and musicians Ellen Warkentine and Andrew Pedroza first saw an internet meme of a fat cat sitting on top of a keyboard, they wrote a song about it. They did not know that one song would turn into many more, that “Astrocat” would become the protagonist in a found lyrics operatic experiment, or that said experiment would evolve into a full length dystopian clash between low-brow humor and high art. They know it now. And this Fall, so will you. You can haz cheezburger? Why, yes. Yes, you can.
