Longtime staples of the New Orleans scene, QUINTRON & MISS PUSSYCAT bring a little flavor, and madness, of the deep South to the Empty Bottle and we’re very excited to have them back. Balancing QUINTRON’s organ mincing explosions with MISS PUSSYCAT’s quivering maraca accompanied wailing, not to mention her inimitable puppet show, the duo fashions songs that are pure insane exuberance. Their last LP, Too Thirsty 4 Love, on Goner, further pushed the boundaries of their sideshow-esque organ driven rock and expect them to shred those boundaries here live. PIERCED ARROWS, the Portland-based trio comprised of rock legends FRED and TOODY COLE of seminal punk band DEAD MOON and drummer KELLY HALLIBURTON released their sophomore LP Descending Shadows via Vice Records back in 2010 and last year followed up the punk rock explosion with a new single, Keep Pushin released by Tombstone Records. While leaner and mellower than in their DEAD MOON days, PIERCED ARROWS still barrel forth with the same haggard, long-fanged intent that made their previous outfit so great, mixing in more country and blues licks with an increased attention to melody. A newish outfit featuring a line-up of seasoned music veterans DON’T boasts a resume that includes an impressive list of Northwest bands including THE WIPERS, NAPALM BEACH, LADIES OF THE NIGHT and THE LOVE LASERS. SIR DJ spins throughout tonight’s celebration of some of the best and most legendary underground musicians in the US today.
