Austin Jukebox: Puerto Rico Flowers, Body Pressure, White Suns, The Young Mothers


Austin Jukebox in partnership with The SIMS Foundation proudly presents:

> Puerto Rico Flowers [US/AUS] - Puerto Rico Flowers was the brief synth/bass-driven dark post-punk solo project of John Sharkey III, started when he first moved to Australia from Philadelphia and sandwiched between his mid-00s noise rock group Clockcleaner and his current post-punk band Dark Blue (formed in 2013). Originally, Sharkey had assembled touring bands in both the US and Australia (and when PRF ended, the US touring band went on to become Dark Blue), though only toured sporadically and rarely within the US. This will be PRF's 10th show ever and their first in Austin!

> Body Pressure [ATX] - Local hardcore punkers with a new LP 'U.S. Decay' out on Last Hour Records.

> White Suns [NY] - Formed in the 00s, White Suns is a NY-based noise rock trio that meshes electronics with rock to create "an eerie soundscape not entirely dissimilar to the sensation of sleep paralysis in its generation of anxiety inflicted upon an unwillingly-passive audience." (Quote from Post-Trash)

> The Young Mothers [ATX] - The brainchild of the Norwegian-born bassist Ingebrigt Håker Flaten, The Young Mothers was formed 2012 in Austin. The group’s debut album, A Mothers Work is Never Done, has been described as a creative-music pacesetter with its jack-out-of-the-box surprises ranging from grindcore injections to visionary hip-hop to spirited and moody takes on modern jazz and improv.

This is the eleventh show of the quarterly series, Austin Jukebox; with the goal of bringing together acts from different genres that are interesting, weird and/or cool, the aim of the series is to provide an experience that is unique, refreshing and something to talk about. This is also our first ever 18+ show in the series!

The SIMS Foundation started in 1995 in memory of local musician Sims Ellison to provide access and financial support for mental health and addiction recovery services to Austin music industry professionals and their families.
