A few months ago we ventured from our home in the Upper 9th to deep in the Lower 9th Ward for a concert at Saint Maurice Catholic Church.

Mr Quintron was to unleash his Weather Warlock on the gathered throng of neo-Bohemians.

And he did to certain effect.

What is the Weather Warlock?

Take it away Q: “A global temperature sensor controls a grinding bass note that continuously cycles through a phase that moves faster in the heat, slower in the cold. The anemometer measures wind speed via spinning cups that send out a digital pulse like you hear in submarine movies. A periscope aimed at the sky hosts a UV sensor: ‘It’s specially calibrated to remain silent and only emit sound when in the flux between light and dark—only at sunrise and sunset, except on that rare storm…”

That description was from a Guardian interview that Michael Patrick Welch conducted with Quintron.

We found the concert to be quite boring but we go more for the full-on rave-ups that Quintron puts on with Miss Pussycat. They are the best live concerts in New Orleans. Period.
