Quintron and Miss Pussycat, the ever enigmatic and slightly macabre denizens of "swamp tech," grace Portland with their presence for East End's annual Smashed Block Party. Robert Rolston wails on keys and circuit-bent instruments often of his own design, as he's backed by collaborator and master puppeteer Panacea Pussycat, allowing for quite an interesting combination. A 2012 Grammy nomination for their cover of "Chatterbox" along with their recent release Sucre Du Sauvage, recorded live at the New Orleans Museum of Art, only adds to the duo's fire. Having been at it for over 15 years, a certain brand of polished excellence in the world of crossover performance shines through, and Quintron and Miss Pussycat's shows prove to be quite hypnotizing.
