Puro Instinct

The "special guest" playing Pianos Friday night with Selebrities is Puro Instinct whose tour with John Maus just brought them to both Glasslands and Mercury Lounge. Pics from Mercury Lounge are on the way, and we already talked about Glasslands (though briefly). If you missed it, Bill wrote:

" I caught [John Maus and Puro Instinct[ at Glasslands. Maus' show, which shouldn't work, does thanks to his dedication and intensity. A little goes a long way, though. (I really like the new album, I should say.) Puro Instict can really sing and play... better songs will come with time. They're young."
What did you think?

The Pianos show is a benefit for human trafficking survivors and advanced tickets are on sale. Slowdance, Yvette, Care Bears on Fire (even younger than Puro Instinct) and Blissed Out DJs are also on the bill.

Updated Puro Instinct tour dates, and a video they posted with a current Kickstarter campaign they have going, below...

I think Piano's is the Arlene's Grocery of its day. So, No, in answer to your question.


The Puro Instinct/Pearl Harbor records have been pretty good so far, but I feel like these girls will be lured away from good taste by gross producers and cocaine, and the next record will have lots of slick production, electro synths and eyeshadow.

I really love their records, but their live show is just not up to par yet.

Wonder who's parents are funding this band?

So I just watched two youtube videos. Fully aware it's different than actually hearing them live, but still, THAT is considered "can really sing and play"? No wonder our music culture is in the shitter.

"Wonder who's patents are funding this band"

Uh, nobody's parents. Why the hell would they need a kickstarter if they had rich parents?

It's great that Puro Instict is promoting their cause to get trannies trafficked more often these days.
