SAILOR POON

Performing @ 11:00 – 11:40

Sailor Poon was born in 2015 as a playful, sarcasm-fueled response to the big red Texas patriarchy. The band’s demo garnered the attention of King Khan, who called them “the best thing to happen to Texas music since the meeting of Tommy Hall and Roky Erickson” of the 13th Floor Elevators, inviting them to cause a ruckus on his Texas tour dates. During SXSW in 2017 and 2018, SP was voted ‘Best Punk Band’ by the Austin Chronicle Readers Poll, thus becoming the first band to use the word “SHART” in an awards acceptance speech. November 2017 saw their latest release, B-Sides and Rarities. They recently performed at the 2018 Austin City Limits music festival and have shared stages with other bands such as King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, Oh Sees, Ty Segall and more. 2019 will see the release of their next full length album.
