Quintron and Miss Pussycat w/ Utopia Park and others – Tonight at Vaudeville Mews!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Organ music. Sweat. Puppets. Dancing. Maracas. Geniuses.

There, I just summed up why you have to go to tonight’s show. I don’t think I need to say anything else to get you to go to tonight’s Quintron and Miss Pussycat show at Vaudeville Mews. This is such an interesting and unique show that you really should go out of your way to get to it. Quintron is such a genius producer/organ player that it is an impossible not to dance to. Making his name in New Orleans, Quintron uses a lot of that New Orleans style to make music a wholly unique electronic music experience. If it wasn’t enough that the music itself is unlike anything else in the world, his co-collaborator and wife Miss Pussycat has a unique voice and is also a master puppeteer, which gets incorporated into their live show.

As if that weren’t enough, joining them on this show is Fairfield’s Utopia Park. The genius Rabalais brothers, Philip and Dominic, are also members of some of Iowa’s best acts like Surgery, Little Ruckus, Trouble Lights and the outstanding new group Animal (seriously, give this a listen. I will be talking about this at length soon). Together, though, they make some of the loudest most chaotic electronic dance punk you will ever hear. Philip’s production and Dom’s hurricane stage presence allows them to be two of the most interesting and talented musicians you will ever come across.

Also playing tonight are We Shave and The Whether Report. $10 and an 8pm start. 21+. Get there.



  1. Not able to make the show, but these videos are magic . . . much to investigate here, thanks! I am a serious organ music geek, to the point of actually listening to Uriah Heep more often than is probably wise to admit. (See: http://indiemoines.com/2010/01/12/heavy-organ-music/). I am also totally agreeing with you about Utopia Park, whose track on the “Sonic Harvest” comp has been blowing the minds of my whole family for the past month or so. I am off to retrieve my daughter from college in New York tonight . . . hoping we arrive back in Des Moines in time for her and I to catch Xiu Xiu at the Mews on Sunday . . . I dunno who locally is supporting him/them (if anyone), but I hope to be there to root for Team DM, either way, 16 hour drive notwithstanding . . .

    • Godspeed on your trip. I’m going to Deer Tick tonight myself, so I may end up missing Xiu Xiu, which sucks. Doesn’t look to be any locals on that bill, but it looks like an awesome time.
