Quintron and the drum buddy.
QUINTRON AND MISS PUSSYCAT9 p.m., Low Key Arts Building, Hot Springs. $10.
Since Quintron and Miss Pussycat's
appearance in Hot Springs last year, the duo's released a new album, “Too Thirsty for Love,” which features on its cover lead singer and multi-instrumentalist Quintron in vampire teeth, posed next to an elderly African-American woman in a church hat and cradling quite possibly the world's largest boa constrictor. Also, a straight-to-DVD movie by the director of “Heathers,” set in New Orleans and starring Zooey Deschanel as “Miss Pussy Katz,” almost certainly appropriated a fair amount of the duo's life story. Oh yeah, Kanye plugged Quintron's “drum buddy,” an oscillating synthesizer that kicks out analog drum sounds when triggered by light, on his blog. The lore grows, but the sound remains the same, which is to say, different: Quintron specializes in lounge-act-style organ grinding, big 808 beats and hollering, while his wife, Miss Pussycat, offers backing vocals and elaborate sock puppet shows, choreographed to the music. You can get a taste of Pussycat's puppets on “Trixie and the Treetrunks,” on Vice Magazine's web TV station. Brooklyn's Golden Triangle
and Little Rock's Josh the Devil and the Sinners
open. The show is open to all ages.
