Quintron and Miss Pussycat

Quintron and Miss Pussycat
Quintron and Miss Pussycat live! Legendary New Orleans musicians who filter the true psychedelic soul of New Orleans traditional party music through a Hammond organ, technicolor puppets, and a battalion of distorted, homemade instruments. Quitnron is the inventor of The Drum Buddy, a light sensitive drum machine used by folks like Laurie Anderson, and the Weather Warlock, which uses sun, rain, temperature, and wind to make music.
It's a show to behold. 
This special show will feature a puppet show, live music and a retrospective of films from the Quintron and Miss Pussycat archive. Don't miss this unique chance to experience the real soul of New Orleans.
QUINTRON and MISS PUSSYCAT have been making genre-defying noise and hard rocking dance music in New Orleans for over fifteen years. The majority of their 14 full-length albums (Including ones for Goner Records and Third Man Records) have the psychedelic soul of traditional New Orleans party music filtered through a tough distorted Hammond B-3 and a cache of self-made electronic instruments. Quintron and Miss P. have three new releases they'll be touring around in June 2024: A 7" single on Houma Records, a disco EP on Rhinestone Records, a USB release entitled "Ephemeral Ponds" which was built on Louisiana Frog sounds. They will also have a new live puppet show and plenty of organ blasters. MISS PUSSYCAT plays maracas and sings, as well as entertaining all age groups with her highly amusing technicolor puppet shows. Hers are complex puppet shows beautifully crafted for success in intimate venues of late night drinking and dancing: tactile, idiosyncratic characters, pithy dialogue, electronically pixilated soundtracks, and trippy black light effects create a visual and engaging overture/finale to Quintron and Miss Pussycat's music sets. Quintron aids in puppet manipulation and voicing. Miss Pussycat, in turn, sings lead and back-up and plays maracas during Quintron's performances. QUINTRON regards his most significant creation to be a patented instrument called THE DRUM BUDDY, a light activated analog synthesizer which creates murky,low-fidelity, rhythmic patterns. Notable DRUM BUDDY clients include performers Nels Cline of Wilco, Laurie Anderson, Fred Armisen, and DJ Mr. Dibbs. The Quintron / Miss Pussycat experience is one of barely controlled electronic chaos, "Swamp-Tech" dance beats, small explosions, incredible clothes, and entertaining puppet stories.
