Twin Cities based band Porcupine will be performing at The What’s Up Lounge in Mankato on Saturday, April 6th. Rock trio Porcupine organically forges its singular brand of Rock’n’Roll reminiscent of the late-90s alternative without compromise. Un-yielded by what’s trendy, Casey Virock (guitars/vocals) with Greg Norton (bass) and Ian Prince (drums) derive some of their inspiration from 70’s classic rock and 60’s British psychedelica, resulting in a Swervedriver meets Queens of The Stone Age type sound.
Porcupine was founded in early 2006 by Casey Virock. Hoping to spring board off recent success from his former band Space Bike, including opening slots for Frank Black, The Descendants, The Melvins, The Jesus Lizard and Everclear, Porcupine began touring and playing the Midwest. Ian Prince has been supplying the backbone for top-notch indie bands like Story of the Sea, Houston and Kid Dakota for well over a decade. Possessing the perfect combination of play-for-the-song sensibility and an “all or nothing” attitude, Prince is an undeniable powerhouse on the drums.
Joining them on this show will be Rad Owl and LowRay.
