Concert review: Quintron and Miss Pussycat

Date: Saturday, November 22
Venue: Eyedrum
Support: Hawks, The Carbonas

Seeing Quintron and Miss Pussycat was a bit of fresh air. There wasn't any sweating due to a billion bodies trying to see. After Hawks and Carbonas played (rather heavy for the setting), a puppet show opened up the headliner's -for seriously. It was lead by Quintron's wife, Miss Pussycat, who also did backup vocals and played maracas. Seeing Mr. Quintron was interesting because he had a great trick up his sleeve. His entire band is himself and a machine he invented out of an organ, how cool is that? He's like "Bert" from Mary Poppins, but cooler! To describe the sound (or somewhat ballpark it), think LCD Soundsystem and Arcade Fire with White Stripes vocals. However, it's hard to say since I've heard nothing like it before, which is good. Overall, it was a relaxing evening enjoying a brewski and popcorn while listening to fun music.
