Splinter Cake (Portland, OR) and John Rose & Friends Band Debut Tonight!

Natrix Natrix Records presents Splinter Cake, and John Rose & Friends.

Splinter Cake makes a tour stop in Austin, playing what I can only describe will be a minimalist punk meets folk rock set. John Rose (member of favorite rock trio Housewife), directs a solo project that evolved into an album, Present Imperfect, and now a band featuring Elizabeth Hansen on keys, accordion and backup vocals, Afsheen Nomai on bass (and "sarcasm") and Mike Sherk on drums (and "swimming"). We're guessing these "talents" are inside jokes - so you'll have to ask the band in person tonight.

If you didn't get the office memo, "Thursday is the new Friday", the house party tonight with Splinter Cake and John Rose & Friends confirms Thursday as a good time to hear the best and brightest of touring and new local bands.

Get directions to the b.y.o.b. house show.
