Punk Funk = Quintron & Miss Pussycat

quintron21

As a committed concert attendee – occasionally I am diluted into thinking I’ve seen all the tricks, stage antics, coordinated lighting and other visual additions possible to enhance the concert experience.   Then I saw Quintron & Miss Pussycat at The Echo a few years ago.

Their performance experience commenced with a puppet/marionette show that was choreographed to music that Quintron was playing from behind the curtain.  Complete with a story arc, a protagonist, a villain, a climax and a denouement – you might have thought you were back in kindergarten enjoying story time after recess.   The marionettes were cast aside, the curtain dropped and boom – I was smacked in the face with some boogaloo punk funk the likes of which I’d never heard or witnessed before.

In a unique sub-genre of funk, jazz and punk that few acts occupy (see Garage A Trois, Mike Dillon’s Go-Go Jungle, etc.) – Quintron & Miss Pussycat are hometown heroes to New Orleans and generally celebrated anywhere they go.  If you like to feel the NOLA vibes, just like to get a little weird or want to don your Halloween costume early and still fit in – look no further than Quintron and Miss Pussycat tonight at The Satellite.
