Punk and alt-country songwriter Jesse Thorson somehow escaped the frozen tundra of Minnesota and managed bring a band he’s calling “The Banned” along to help him play the songs of Pretty Boy Thorson, Thorson’s new band Slow Death, and Loose Behaviour (a band featuring members of Slow Death, The Ergs, The Raging Nathans and Pale Angels).

Gainesville garage-punk unit Trash The Rental, plus Tampa’s own Too Many Daves and Old Vices, round out this bill making its way around Florida this weekend.

Tickets to see Jesse Thorson & The Banned, Trash The Rental and Old Vices play Hooch and Hive in Tampa on Sunday, Jan. 8 are still available for $10.
