Austin’s very own Sailor Poon came together just over a year ago and are taking the music scene into their own hands and carving out their very own space. Performing under various stage names like Sally Poon and Suzy Poon, what is immediately apparent is their familial-like connection and their ability to join forces to provide something genre-bending, both in their records and with their live performances. Describing their music as “shitty post sincerity”, you never quite know what to expect from Sailor Poon – from their country song “Ol’ Bessie” to their metal track “Butt Gush”, they’re down to experiment with it all. A little tongue in cheek, Sailor Poon’s lyrics to songs like “Hairy Women”, “The Dick” and “The Misogynist” still ring true of issues and topics that are relevant to the band, and worth speaking openly about.

 

 

July 10th stands out not only because of their show at Swan Dive tonight, but also because it’s Billie’s and Mariah’s birthday celebration! Catch Sailor Poon perform at 1AM, along with sets by Big Bill, Basketball Shorts, and Popper Burns – doors open at 9:30PM with a mere $5 cover. If you’re unable to make it to Swan Dive tonight you can still catch all the action by following us as they take over our Instagram page.

 

You can listen to Sailor Poon on their Bandcamp page, as well as check out their updated merch section. You can also keep updated with the band on their Facebook and Instagram page.
