The beer flowed freely when Nashville Pussy brought their Southern-style rock ‘n roll to the Old Rock House in St. Louis.
Since 1996, Nashville Pussy‘s popularity has been steadily increasing, thanks in no small part to lyrics that revolve around sex, drugs, drinking, and fighting and the band lineup to back them up. Consisting of husband and wife duo, Blaine Cartwright and Ruyter Suys (pronounced “Rider Sighs”), drummer Jeremy Thompson, and new addition, bassist Bonnie Buitrago, Nashville Pussy catered to the audience, pounding out song after song with barely a breath between them, Suys’ head of blonde curls and Buitrago’s brunette locks flying.
Contrasting with Nashville Pussy’s heavy sound and strutting around the stage, catl played a minimalist set. The band is a duo: catl (guitars and vocals), and Sarah K (drums and vocals). But don’t let the small number fool you… these two have a BIG sound.
Opening the night were The Yawpers, who list Denver as their hometown. The trio took the crowd by surprise, starting the night out on the right note with their own stripped-down and brazen sound.
