Porcupine 'Carrier Wave' album release show with Season to Risk and The Hussy.

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.

Season to Risk are the luckiest band alive. An American alternative rock (post-hardcore, noiserock) band from Kansas City, Missouri formed in 1989 by singer Steve Tulipana and guitarist Duane Trower, the band built an audience for their post-hardcore music by touring relentlessly across the USA. Season to Risk got lucky during the early '90s major-label feeding frenzy and signed to Red Decibel / Columbia Records.

The best scuzzy rock'n'roll bands make it look easy, but it isn't. Every now and then, you hear a slab of garage punk like the Hussy's "EZ/PZ". In the song's opening two seconds, the Madison duo establish dominance with nine fast, fuzzed out strums.
