New Orleans is home to a plethora of musical acts that would be considered traditional to the area. Typically, traditional music from the Crescent City tends to lean towards jazz. However, it is also known as a breeding ground for bands that could be considered traditionally non-traditional. Mr. Quintron & Miss Pussycat is a Big Easy band that has become legendary in their local scene for wonderfully bizarre sounds. With a live delivery to match their unique music, this duo’s live shows at the Spellcaster Lodge continue to attract both locals and visitors with each performance.
Quintron is a master of electronic madness. His instrumental ensemble consists of a number of drum machines, keyboards and synthesizers with names such as “The Drum Buddy” and “Weather Warlock.” While Quintron mixes his electronic concoctions, Miss Pussycat provides vocals and entertainment with her inflatable puppet theatre.
Their set will be full of electronic beat-driven, danceable music that walks a fine line between the psychedelic and the insane. The crowd can also expect cuts from their latest album “Spellcaster II: Death in Space.”
Mr. Quintron & Miss Pussycat will be joined by Bitchin’ Bajas and Mobile’s undisputed kings of punk, the Hibachi Stranglers.
