As if there weren't already enough fun things going on around town Saturday , the Kitty Cat Klub is hosting a clever double-bill with local favorite Communist Daughter and a Boston-based tribute band cheekishly based on the band that gave the local band its name (got all that?). They're called Neutral Uke Hotel, and -- as the moniker suggests -- they play ukulele-led versions of influential and long-sidelined Elephant 6 psychedelic indie-folk band Neutral Milk Hotel. Specifically, NUH plays NMH's cult-revered 1998 album, "In the Aeroplane Over the Sea," in its entirety, an album I very much liked in 1998 but think has been a wee bit overrated in recent years (i.e., #4 album of the '90s on Pitchfork). Regardless, this sounds like a fun interpretation of it. Here's a sample clip featuring (what else?) the song "Communist Daughter." Showtime is about 10 p.m. and cover is $5.
