Pick: Quintron

May  16
Quintron & Miss Pussycat w/ Vickers, Solid Goldberg
The Waiting Room Lounge, 6212 Maple St.
9 p.m., $10, onepercentproductions.com

If your knowledge of New Orleans keyboardists only extends to Dr. John, then you need to make an appointment with Quintron, the cult-hero nightclub organist who truly embodies all of the weird, shamanistic vibe of New Orleans underground culture. Quintron plays a bank of analog-era synths, rigged, rebuilt and reimagined to fit his own hosts of inventions, like the light-activated, oscillating beat machine known as the Drum Buddy. Quintron outsider punk streak has drawn a following among garage punk fans, while even the New Orleans Museum of Art has taken notice. They allowed him to take residence as a living exhibit as he recorded 2011's Sucre Du Sauvage. Meanwhile, his partner Miss Pussycat packs her own delightful, demented homemade puppets on the road to entertain audiences prior to Quintron's sweat-soaked boogie sessions.
