TONIGHT: Pocketknife EP Release At Mississippi Studios

Portland band Pocketknife are releasing their first EP, "Tough as Snails" (Sohitek records) tonight at Mississippi Studios with Vanimal and Pegasus Dream. Be prepared for tight pop melodies, lots and lots of synths, and frequently cheeky songs on a variety of topics, from "Cotton Candy" a (mostly) straightforward I have a crush on you song, to "Normandy", a mournful yet danceable song about a doomed mission, to "Should I Kiss the Vipers Fang" which warns that "every girl's crazy 'bout that sharp-toothed man". Take a listen and if you can, come out tonight, for music fun enough to make the cool kids dance too.
