Quintron & Miss Pussycat • noise, rock
The summer heat is draining. The news is depressing. Listening to the radio is usually draining and depressing. 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…

I have always been astounded by the potential of sound; for millennia, sounds have been pieced together in inventive ways, entrancing audiences and shaping emotion through music. Music to me is a thing of magic, constantly transforming into something new in the hands of those with the ability to harness that magic. Albuquerque native Bryce Hample, better known as the mastermind behind the surreal vibrations of Reighnbeau, is truly one of those wizards, an electro-maestro with a brilliant capability for intricately layering sounds where one would least expect, but where they truly belong. This Thursday, June 29, Reighnbeau will be transforming Sister into a dreamlike world of glinting shoegaze and celestial ambience, adorned by Hample’s remarkable capabilities for visual art and mesmerizing performance even as he concocts the magic of music before our eyes. Featuring opening performances from Sazoram and Austin Morrell, the cosmic stage will be set at 9pm. Be sure to get your tickets at the presale price of $5 before they go up at the door.
