EVENT HORIZON (Friday, Jun 23)

Step away from it all and rejuvenate yourself this Sunday, June 25, at Sister with a wacky, energetic performance from Quintron and Miss Pussycat, who promise an unparalleled experience complete with outrageous costumes, complex puppet shows, explosions and “Swamp-Tech” dance music imbued with the psychedelic spirit of New Orleans. Whether this description intrigues, confuses or titillates your sensibilities, it is doubtless that their performance will leave you with a great story and a gleaming smile. The thrilling black-magic synths of local Sleepdepth (also known by the much more sorcerous title Somno Profundante) will set the stage and the mood by contrast. Buy your tickets in advance to save $2 off the already bargain price of $10, and come along for the fun when the show starts at 7pm.
