Perfect Pussy at NYU in 2013 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
PP

Syracuse noise punks Perfect Pussy, whose upcoming debut LP, Say Yes to Love will now be more bloody, just played NYC opening for Total Slacker last week (2/12) as part of their ongoing tour, and now that that's in the past, they've tacked on a headlining NYC gig to the end of the tour happening April 5 at Mercury Lounge. To open that show, Perfect Pussy got two fellow upstate NY bands, both of which have something in common with parts of Perfect Pussy's sound. There's the punk attack of Green Dreams and the abrasive noise duo Tumul. Tickets for the Merc show go on sale Friday (2/21) at noon.

UPDATE: More dates were announced, including another NYC show on April 4 at Death by Audio, again with Total Slacker, and also with fellow Syracuse punks Friendless Bummer. No advance tickets for that show.

Many of the other dates are with Yamantaka // Sonic Titan (though they aren't on either NYC show), and they also announced they're playing the NPR SXSW showcase with Damon Albarn, St. Vincent and Kelis; and the Chaos In Tejas SXSW showcase with Destruction Unit and The Gotobeds. There's also a new video for "I" (shot and edited by BV contributor Lukas Hodge) which you can watch, along with the list of dates, below.

Speaking of Friendless Bummer, they just released a new EP, Militia (streaming below), and they'll be in NYC this weekend for Indie Pop Prom at Baby's (2/22) with Pity Sex, Places to Hide, Radiator Hospital, Bad Banana (reunion) and special guests "Traitor Bitches" (tickets).

Updated dates are listed, with streams and the new video, below...

12:10, I think you're right. I feel the same way about Fucked Up. I guess shock value still works.

Why aren't Tits of Clay topping this bill, with Perfect Pussy opening?

Not a good live band... and they play for about 15 minutes. Overrated.

Brooklyn Vegan's daily perfect pussy post. Never heard this band and I'm already sick of them.

Time for Perfect Pussy to do a night with Sausage Of Doom

"Traitor Bitches" is obviously Perfect Pussy.

Such a filthy name. Guess there related to BV's editor?

I heard Smegma will be joining them on the last leg of the tour.

What's the going rate for posts on this site? It's pretty cheap, so bands like this can have every move "reported" right?

please stop calling them "noise punks"

Artie Fufkin of Polymer Records had the perfect word for bands like this when it comes to exposure. I believe it was "oversaturation".

Shit Pop Punk akin to Blink 182. Wow, the word Pussy... so shocking. Call me a tesco pig if you'd like—your comments suck.
