Quintron and Miss Pussycat
Quintron has been making genre-defying noise and “Swamp-Tech” dance music in New Orleans for over fifteen years. The majority of his ten full-length albums have the psychedelic soul of New Orleans garage R&B filtered through a tough distorted Hammond B-3 and a cache of self-made electronic instruments.
Miss Pussycat, otherwise known as Panacea Theriac, is a New Orleans based puppeteer. Born in Antlers, Oklahoma, she began learning puppetry at the Christian Puppet Youth Ministry at the First Baptist Church of Antlers. She began her professional career in New Orleans and assisted in founding the influential night club “Pussycat Caverns.” For the past fifteen years she has traveled internationally conducting puppet shows in rock clubs and at international festivals. She is the President of Rhinestone Records and produces vinyl LPs of her puppet’s many bands.
The Quintron and Miss Pussycat live show is one of barely controlled electronic chaos, “Swamp-Tech” dance beats, small explosions, clothes, and entertaining puppet stories. You can experience them live at their own secret club, the Spellcaster Lodge in New Orleans or on one of their many tours around the world. This act somehow has equal relevance in sleazy nightclubs, pizza restaurants, and university lecture halls.
Puppets and Pancakes Breakfast
This year, Bruise Cruise 2 will feature the world premiere of a brand-new puppet movie by Miss Pussycat! There will be free jewelry at the showing.
Miss Pussycat’s career in puppetry began in her junior high school’s Christian Puppet Youth Ministry. These days, her live puppet shows can be seen in rock clubs all over the world with Quintron, and on Carnival Cruise ships. Her puppet movies include North Pole Nutrias, Electric Swamp, and Trixie and the Treetrunks. In 2010 her mini magic landscapes and puppets were installed in the New Orleans Museum of Art as the exhibit Parallel Universe.
Quintron and Miss Pussycat will take time off from their busy touring schedule this Fall and Winter to venture into the unknown and make a new puppet movie. You can expect technicolor landscapes with a lot of texture and things that talk. It’s the perfect remedy for sea sickness.
