Prior to SXSW 2014 I had no idea who Perfect Pussy were. But the buzz on the band during SXSW was inescapable. When I noticed they were playing the NPR showcase at Stubbs – the largest venue hosting music in Austin – I figured it would be a great opportunity to shoot them. I mean, they do have a fantastic band name.

So i shot them and I cannot honestly remember anything other than being in the photo pit thinking ‘this shit is out of control.’

Perfect Pussy has been called the most important band to come out of Syracuse, NY since late 80’s metal-core band Earth Crisis. Based on how many people remember Earth Crisis, i’m guessing that Syracuse has not had an abundance of bands come out of it. Perfect Pussy released their debut album earlier this year on Captured Tracks records and the Huffington Post recently declared it one of the best albums of 2014. Notably the record contains 12 songs and runs 23 minutes long. Punk as fuck.
