BLACK PUSSY

Black Pussy is a group of rock n’ roll pot-smoking fun-loving hippies that are passionate about art, creativity and the dynamic human spirit which refuses to submit. They encourage all ages and creeds to take the ride with them. For Dustin Hill, the creator and songwriter of the band, Black Pussy sounded like a fantastic name. It encapsulates exactly what the band is: a psychedelic, ’70s-influenced, hide-your-daughters-because-they’re-coming-to-town rock ‘n’ roll band that sounds like Tarantino directing a Thin Lizzy video in the low desert.

For the past few years, the group has continuously headed out on North American tours, including a full U.S. and Canadian stint opening for ex-Kyuss legends Vista Chino in 2013 as well as sharing the stage with Sleep, Red Fang, Danava, Yob, Boots Electric, Black Tusk, Mothership and Dead Meadow. Their rigorous touring regimen has rightfully earned them the tagline, “ON TOUR FOREVER.” The group has also spent the last three years recording the band’s blend of heavy, psychedelic rock songs with not only Portland recording engineer Adam Pike (Red Fang, Norska, Black Elk, etc.) but also the legendary Kyuss founding drummer and multi-instrumentalist Brant Bjork.

Black Pussy approaches their music style with influences across three decades of rock: the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s. The result is a cohesive blend of Kyuss, Hawkwind, The Cars, Monster Magnet and Queens of the Stone Age. Their classic, upbeat and relentlessly hooky tracks embrace traditional pop structure within heavy rock and led to Hill coining the phrase “stoner-pop”. Their catchy music tends to seduce anyone, even those who wander in a club after seeing the intriguing band name on the marquis. There is no contrived contention, just fun, love and good tunes. Everyone is invited to this party.


BLINDS

Some Thing for No Thing is the second EP release from Minneapolis natives blinds. The record was a hands-on homage to the lo-fi nature of the early 90’s grunge scene all while using modern influences from Kings of Leon to Interpol. After a successful debut EP release in December 2015 (covered by The Current and City Pages), blinds used their momentum to play several summer festivals, tour the midwest, and record a follow up EP. Their new record, Some Thing for No Thing is set to debut January 24, 2017. The first single, “Pretend Life” premiered on The Current Local Show.


BUFFALO FUZZ

Toothy grit, hard lines, and heavy riffs. The past and future of blues music collide in every thunderous snap of the string, shooting a pulse of electricity into an army of soul-dripping tube amps. Buffalo Fuzz is Jared Zachary (guitar/vocals) and Jake Allan (drums), a two-piece heavy blues band from Minneapolis, MN.
