QUINTRON & MISS PUSSYCAT
7 p.m. Low Key Arts. $7.
New Orleans is rightfully famous for offering spirited good times, and one of its secrets is that the city’s biggest weirdoes own the dance floor. Which helps to explain the cult status of husband-and-wife team Quintron & Miss Pussycat, the crown prince and princess of New Orleans avant-garde.
Quintron offers up campy electro-boogie — or psych-soul, or swamp-tech, pick your hyphenated poison — and Miss Pussycat puts on trippy puppet shows; the result is a sweaty, thumping sensory overload that’s about as good (and strange) of a live show as I’ve seen in the Crescent City or anywhere else. Would that all performance art was this funky.
This show will be a special treat as it also includes the world premiere screening of Miss P’s “Trixie and the Treetrunks: Mystery in Old Bathbath,” the latest installment in her delightful puppet soap opera chronicling the misadventures of various felt-and-knickknack creatures, a surprisingly immersive arts-and-crafts universe.
