Cafe Nine
New Haven, CT
      Before recorded music existed, going to see a band perform live was the only way to experience their music.  There is actually an entire book written on the subject titled How The Beatles Destroyed Rock N Roll.   It’s an interesting read if you have the time or somehow cannot connect the dots in your head.  (And for another mind blowing experience, just think about how much of a mega-star Elvis Presley became without the internet)
      When I think of Quintron and Miss Pussycat I think of three different things.   First, I think of my son who is named Quentin, which is not that far off from Quintron.   Then I think about kitty cats because I like kitty cats.  
      And thirdly I think about their music.   Quintron and Miss Pussycat have such a sound that cannot be described by most ears that it is something you really have to experience live to fully grasp.   There exist a large number of bands that I won’t name personally but they tour off of the same songs every year and the live shows become pretty cut and paste.
      Quintron and Miss Pussycat take us back to a time when the live show was not only important but necessary because there was no such thing as records or MP3s.  Yes, they have recorded music released for your listening pleasure, but they are also one of those rare bands that you must see live because every show will be different than the last.
