Opening Wednesday, September 12th, at 8:30PM
Quintron and Miss Pussycat have been making genre-defying noise and hard rocking dance music in New Orleans for over fifteen years. The majority of their 14 full-length albums have the psychedelic soul of traditional New Orleans party music filtered through a tough distorted Hammond B-3 and a cache of self-made electronic instruments.
The Quintron / Miss Pussycat experience is one of barely controlled electronic chaos, “Swamp-Tech” dance beats, small explosions, incredible clothes, and entertaining puppet stories.
the Velcro Lewis Group
THE VELCRO LEWIS GROUP is earth’s premier acid-rock, space-funk septet. The band twists the aesthetics of Funkadelic, Hawkwind, Temptations, and Black Sabbath into their own living -breathing planet of sound. Lead by Hawk Colman, the brother with the 5 octave range, honky tonk veteran Lawrence Peters singing bass and scrubbing the washboard, and blind growler/Moog-eater, Andy Slater, people can’t deny the commands and demands shouted from the stage. Travers Gauntt’s Skylab crashing guitars hug and hurt, Alison Hunger’s psychic Theremin dances and dives, and Halden Spoonwood’s bass playing has more pocket than a pair of overalls, revealing the band to be a source of both confusion and totality. Once it becomes possible to drive an Impala through space and time, VELCRO LEWIS will be hot glued into the tape deck.
Flux Bikes rotates around the idea of bicycle wheels as percussion instruments, incorporating world rhythms, electro-acoustic techniques, and improvisation. Sueñolas is Bill MacCay on guitar, Whitney Johnson on viola, and Rob Frye on the guittarra de son, focusing on simple yet evolving melodies and their counterpoints, painting somber, old-world scenes.
