Quintron & Miss Pussycat @ Gallery 5 (11-12-08)

I had heard about Quintron & Miss Pussycat a couple years ago due to them being the opening act for Peaches on her tour in 2006 (a show I wanted to attend real bad, but was sadly 18+ when I was the tender age of 17). Well, I had checked them out of curiosity and I was quite amused by their very silly/campy/gritty dance sound. I had put their name in my subconscious and then, when I saw a fliers for this show around Richmond, the memories came back to me and I knew that I needed to make a pit stop to Gallery 5 and see their show.

Got to the show when Dead Goats just got on. I had never heard of them before, and I'll be honest, I don't think I'll hear much more of them anytime soon. Their sound was very typical rock n' roll. They seemed to really be enjoying themselves and I was amused by the sincerity of the whole thing, but there really wasn't much to it, and it really wasn't that remarkable.

After that set, The Amoeba Men came on. If you know anything about me, you know that I don't like them. They are weird for the sake of weird, I just don't get it (and there is really no point for me to get into details about something I just don't like). But let's be positive, here are some things I do like about The Amoeba Men:

* The drummer has a sweet porn stache
* They have snazzy fliers
* There feedback is feedbacky (?)

That's really all I got for them, uhh........yeah......let's talk about something else now.

Anyway, after that duo of opening acts was time for the main act. They started their show with this really weird DIY puppet show. I was very, very amused by the whole thing. I really don't recall what the plot of the puppet show was, but that doesn't matter much-- what does matter was that the hand made approach to the puppet show was quite tight and very enjoyable. (It also doesn't hurt that I have a soft spot for puppet shows, not sure why, but I do).

Then after the 10 minute puppet show they started playing their live show. The show was simple in sound, but was just a very good fuzzy organ piano dance music. Sadly, not many people were really into dancing at the show (besides this group of girls who put on a very, very bizarre lady ritual dance thing, it was awkward, I was very amused). Their set was still real tight, even without the group dancing aspect. Seriously though, the show was very fun but wasn't really mind-blowing. Just very fun Wednesday night with some fuzzy good dancing.
