Panacea Theriac (aka Miss Pussycat, dazzling cohort to Mr. Quintron) taught us that puppets aren’t just for crusty carnival vegans, suffering lonely hearts, and schizophrenic Christian Scientists. Mysterious bossy entities from the center of the earth preside over the elaborate, vaguely pagan, psychedelic parallel universe in which her rinky-dink cutie-pie critters who’re high on life (and OK, drugs too) caper, frolic, and shred in bands. It’s totally weird, but we sometimes secretly wish we could be puppets and live in that world too. You can see more than a hundred of her creatures (including favorite classics such as Christy Corn Pop, Dusty, Treasure, Captain Dream Weaver, and the Happy Tree) staring at you from a wall at Live With Animals on Saturday from 7 to 10. It’s a gallery setting, but don’t mistake this for art—it’s a glimpse inside a portal. Live show “The Mystery at Squirrel Ranch” included.
