Perfect Pussy at SXSW 2014 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Perfect Pussy

Syracuse noise punks Perfect Pussy are nonstop touring this year. They were recently in Austin for SXSW and they have plans to return twice in the next few months. First, they'll hit Hotel Vegas on May 3 with fellow upstate NY band Green Dreams and Austin's Feral Future. Tickets for that show are on sale now.

Then, Perfect Pussy cross paths with the previously discussed Potty Mouth tour that hits Austin on June 4 at Red 7 with Swearin' (tickets), making for a great triple bill. It also hits Dallas the next night at Three Links (6/5) (tickets) without Swearin'.

Updated tour schedules for Perfect Pussy HERE and Potty Mouth HERE. Some videos below...

Italian horror-prog rockers Goblin (not to be confused with original member Claudio Simonetti's Goblin, who are also going on tour) are touring North America this spring with Texas duo Pinkish Black. This time around, the Goblin lineup includes original members Massimo Morante and Maurizio Guarini, with Fabio Pignatelli, Agostino Marangolo, and Aidan Zammit. Zammit can't make the tour so he will be temporarily replaced by Zombi's Steve Moore, who Goblin toured with last October. The tour hits Dallas on April 27 at Texas Theater, Houston on April 28 at House of Blues, and Austin on April 29 at Mohawk. Tickets for Dallas, Houston, and Austin are on sale now.

All Goblin dates and the theme song they performed for Dario Argento's 1977 horror film Suspiria lie after the jump...
