Perfect Pussy / Potty Mouth / Stymie / Orgullo Primitivo @ Three Links, Dallas, TX

Perfect Pussy have been riding high over critically positive reviews of their Bamcamp demo and their debut album, Say Yes to Love, not to mention acclaim for their intense live shows.  The band was making their second stop at Three Links in little less than six months, a true sign that this band tours quite a bit.  But this show was a bit different than their last.  This show at Three Links, co-booked by Tactics Productions and Parade of Flesh, proved to be a memorable one.  But it wasn't for the performances, but by a speech given by Perfect Pussy front woman, Meredith Graves, regarding women in music and overall misogyny in the world.

The lineup for this evening was an eclectic one, starting off with the dark and mysterious Orgullo Primitivo.   Stefan Gonzalez captivated the crowd with an array of percussion and screaming vocals.  Stymie brought a more catchy approach, bringing a dose of pop-punk all the way from Denton.  Potty Mouth were another big draw for the show.  Tour mates of Perfect Pussy, Potty's all-girl band have also received a good critical response to their latest release, Hell Bent.  Potty puts a great amount of energy into their brand of pop-rock and received a great response from the Dallas crowd.

Once Perfect Pussy had their equipment set up, they went from zero to sixty in no time at all.  Known for playing fast and furious, tonight's set was no different.  Graves commands the attention of the crowd, as she prowls the center part of the stage before kneeling to belt out succession of screams.  To tell you the truth, Pussy's set was a blur for me.  I spent the twenty-plus minutes near the foot of the stage to take photos of the performance, which left me in the worst possible spot to decipher any note or lyric being produced above.  It wasn't until Graves stopped the show that I finally had the chance to stand and really pay attention.  She discussed being a female singer surrounded by male musicians and how it was great having an all-girl band having her back in Potty Mouth.  She was upset that the gig poster depicted two topless women scantily clad and bound.  The speech was a stamp of disapproval to the promoters (and their poster creator) and a thumbs up for standing up for yourself and those around you.  Photos of the show are below:
