LIne up: Quintron and Miss Pussycat zZz Pancakes Dj's Cassyle & Bea OFFICIAL QUINTRON AND MISS PUSSYCAT BIO: "Quintron has been making genre-defying noise and "Swamp-Tech" dance music in New Orleans for over fifteen years. The majority of his 13 full-length albums have the psychedelic soul of New Orleans garage R&B filtered through a tough distorted Hammond B-3 and a cache of self-made electronic instruments. He has also released strange soundscapes based on inner-city field recordings of frogs and neighborhood ambiance as well as holing himself up in THE NEW ORLEANS MUSEUM OF ART for three months to create the epic "Sucre Du Sauvage" (Goner, 2011). In addition to his own recordings, Quintron has played organ on a number of other records, most notably THE OBLIVIONS "9 Songs" and STEVE RILEY AND THE MAMOU PLAYBOYS "Grand Isle" which was nominated for a Grammy in 2012 and featured the Quintron penned song "Chatterbox". Quintron regards his most significant creation to be his patented instrument called the THE DRUM BUDDY, a light activated analog synthesizer that creates murky, low-fidelity, rhythmic patterns. Notable DRUM BUDDY clients include performers Nels Cline of Wilco, Laurie Anderson, Fred Armisen, and DJ Mr. Dibbs. He has recently invented an analog "drone synthesizer" called THE WEATHER WITCH which is completely modulated by the weather. Quintron's permanent collaborator is none other than master puppeteer, MISS PUSSYCAT who 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. The Quintron / Miss Pussycat experience is one of barely controlled electronic chaos, "Swamp-Tech" dance beats, small explosions, incredible clothes, and entertaining puppet stories. You can see them perform regularly at the Spellcaster Lodge in New Orleans, Louisiana or on one of their many tours around the world. This act somehow has equal relevance in sleazy nightclubs, pizza restaurants, and university lecture halls.

NOLA swamp-tech guru Quintron and Miss Pussycat is the natural headliner at this gig; their American popularity and Halloween-adjacent, 9th Ward electronics and theatrics are bound to generate plenty of buzz, but tour mates zZz are equally swoon-worthy. Hailing from Amsterdam, Björn Ottenheim and Daan Schinkel purvey a self-described “space echo-soaked mix of ’50s R&B, drone and electro.” Evoking No Wave, proto-punk, psych-rock, gothabilly and synthpop in relatively equal measure, zZz is one to watch. ... and listen to. Sway to zZz, Quintron and Miss Pussycat and rarefied local “minimetalindierock” twosome Pancakes! on Wednesday, Oct. 23, at Sister (409 Central NW). This 21-plus, costume-friendly concert swings from the chandeliers at 9pm, and admission will run you a fiver. Enjoy spooky, swampy vinyl platters between sets courtesy of DJ Bea and Alibi alum DJ Cassyle.
