The Ithaca Underground/Dan Smalls Presents event begins at noon and also features Math The Band and Jeff Rosenstock: Depression Werewolf. Tickets are $7.

Perfect Pussy hails from Syracuse but has drawn acclaim from several national media outlets.

Gushes Rolling Stone:

“This Syracuse, New York punk band sent the underground into hype spasms last year with a four-song cassette demo (later released as an EP on their Bandcamp page). They’re rock’s most intense new band, thanks largely to frontwoman Meredith Graves, who’s been known to scream so violently during the band’s 15-minute noise-assault gigs that she becomes physically ill. Out later this month, Perfect Pussy’s excellent full-length debut presents a slightly more nuanced, but still totally blazing, version of their brain-scrambling sound.”

Syracuse.com’s Chris Baker wrote the definitive profile of the band. Read it here.
