Port Obrien play Vernors Room @ The Crofoot Pontiac - Thurs Oct 8th

Photo cred
Port O'Brien's introspective foot-stomper "My Will is Good" from their forthcoming album threadbare (out October 6th on tbd records) just got the remix treatment by Boston's heathens of sweaty dance the BodegaGirls.

Read about its debut on The Tripwire:

threadbare is the follow-up to 2008's acclaimed All We Could Do Was Sing. Parts of the album were recorded by Jason Quever of Papercuts' living room studio in San Francisco, while the rest were recorded with Aaron Espinoza of Earlimart at the Ship recording studio. It became somewhat of a two sided record with dark, haunting, and at times meditative songs paired up with the untiring, somewhat aggressive and punchy anthems that Port O'Brien is becoming known for. The last few years have seen many adventures for the band. The creation of this record came with continuing changes both within the band personally, and sonically. Port O'Brien will continue to evolve. In the meantime, Threadbare stands as another mark this young band is leaving.

The band is about to kick off an extensive tour with Sea Wolf
followed by headlining dates in November.
