By Josiah HughesHusband and wife swampy garage duo Quintron & Miss Pussycat always seem to have some sort of surprise up their sleeves, whether it comes via a mid-set puppet show, their robotic drumset, or Quintron's spooky organ playing. Whatever the case may be, the only way to find out is to catch them on their upcoming three-month tour of North America.
The whole thing kicks of in their home state of Louisiana, where they'll be playing a show on Valentine's Day. One week later, they'll play a show in New Orleans with Andrew WK and then kick off a month-long journey through the U.S. with the equally unpredictable garage stompers the Black Lips. As soon as that's over, a whole other tour kicks off where the band will be joined by shit-gaze progenitors Psychedelic Horseshit. These two bands will make their way north to Canada for shows in Toronto and Montreal on Aprl 18 and 19 respectively.
Quintron and Miss Pussycat released Too Thirsty 4 Love, the 12th Quintron album, last year.
