The Please, Please Me play the next Studio 89
The P l e a s e, P l e a s e M e is an indie pop trio from Austin, Texas with a few tricks up its sleeve. They'll be performing at the next Studio 89 on Monday, October 29th at 7pm.
Featuring two drummers who left New York City to chase their musical dreams, the Please, Please Me is ”poetry you can dance to.” Frontwoman Jessie Torrisi beckons with her sultry voice one moment and duels with Agustin Frederic on the tom toms the next. The cream in the cookie is cellist Alissa Schram, and her army of sound effects.
It’s fun music for smart people, evoking the brashest, most inspiring women of our time from beat poets like Patti Smith to divas like Chrissie Hynde. The songs — poetically flirtatious and unforgettable — constantly dare the audience to “Go for it. Own your desires.” If you go, expect to be pulled into the act.
Jessie Torrisi’s debut album Brûler Brûler is “swagger & sexiness,” “an attention-grabber,” “pure desire,” “graceful sublime indie pop” and “year’s best debut.”
