At the risk of sounding hyperbolic (ah, fuck it), Quintron and Miss Pussycat are true American originals. A near-perfect mix of Suicide, Dr. Frankenstein, Mr. Rogers and Little Richard, this dynamic duo has been consistently electrifying audiences with DIY punk/soul/noise boogie while also creating whole new universes of musical instruments and alternate-reality puppetry for several decades running. All while seemingly never aging. The New Orleans institutions are on the road yet again, on what seems to be their annual swing through swampy Florida. Are they touring behind anything new? It doesn't really matter. Quintron and Miss Pussycat live is something that can't be easily quantified in the music biz market – it's like an old-timey travelling road show: You get a puppet show, some testifyin', and an hour or so of the most sacrilegious gospel you've ever heard, with a dance party to boot. Stacked bill too, with local support from Moon Jelly and Golden Pelicans.
