The PinkPussyDust tour had to go on. With a massive, theft-focused setback behind them and the huge, public outpouring of support that followed, Mannequin Pussy continued their tour with Angel Du$t and Pinkshift in support of their recent Epitaph-released EP, Perfect on a brisk Wednesday evening at the Sinclair in Cambridge, MA.

The last time Mannequin Pussy played the Boston area was a pre-pandemic, equally as sweaty gig at a now-shuttered Great Scott. None of the energy or high-stakes intimacy that is the hallmark of Mannequin Pussy shows was lost as they moved into the main room of the Sinclair, though. Digging into primarily cuts from LP’s Patience and Romantic, with “Perfect,” “Pigs Is Pigs,” and “Control” making live appearances in Massachusetts for the first time, Mannequin Pussy controlled the room with intent from the get-go. Each movement and breath from singer/guitarist Missy Dabice brought the audience closer to a collective, throat-wrenching euphoria.

Dabice ditching her guitar for a few songs towards the end of their set was the icing on the cake for the night’s electric festivities. Baltimore’s Pinkshift and Angel Du$t helped kick things off earlier in the evening. Pinkshift bounced around with abandon, while Angel Du$t played a bit more subdued … at least til the end of their set. Crowd interaction wasn’t saved for the headliners—true to form, Angel Du$t singer Justice Tripp also got rid of his guitar for their final song, bringing Missy onstage for a scream-filled duet that would set the stage perfectly for Mannequin Pussy.
