Shake A Little Harder

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.
