Shake A Little Harder

Posted by on Aug 29, 2013

Jessie Torrisi knew rock bands. She lived it. The Philadelphia native had been in Brooklyn for ten years, drumming for glam groups when she came to a very important realization: Time to move on, or go completely insane. She packed up the drumsticks and said her grand farewell. She wanted to start her own band, and it would take on a different direction.

This also marked the beginning of a two-year search for two band mates to join Torrisi on her quest. But this is how she found drummer Augustin Frederic and cellist Alissa McClure. Yes, a cellist. All manner of awesome and their own twist on to indie-pop. The Please Please Me hit the ground running and toured a lot last year, and now they’re ready to release their debut EP, Shake A Little Harder.

Join The Please Please Me at their EP release show tomorrow night at Stubb’s indoor venue, 801 Red River. Walker Lukens starts the evening off. Doors open at 9 p.m. Recommended.
