Perfect Pussy Stopped Show Early, Railed Against Sexism at Three Links

Perfect Pussy With Potty Mouth, Stymie and Orgullo Primitivo Three Links, Dallas Thursday, June 5, 2014

No one should've come to a Perfect Pussy concert expecting it to last very long. A scorched-earth approach is just the commodity this Syracuse band trades in. But what was unexpected about their visit to Three Links on Thursday night was why it ended when it did. For all the bile that singer Meredith Graves spews out in her performances, she saved an especially withering critique for the end of the concert that was aimed squarely at the night's show flyer.

"I am not stoked," Graves declared, her words pouring out in a quick but calm stream. "We shouldn't have to feel uncomfortable," she added, referring to herself and the ladies of the all-female opening band, Potty Mouth. "Just because you come to a hardcore show, you expect to see tits."
