Sailor Poon adds member of Pearl Earl as second drummer for special Fortress Fest performance

For the first time ever, Austin post-punk band Sailor Poon will join forces with a second drummer on a full kit – Bailey Chapman from Denton’s Pearl Earl, who played the festival in 2018. While many bands have performed with double drums, this could be the first time an all-female outfit has taken up the challenge.

The performance will take place Sunday, April 29 at 4:30pm on Fortress’ Seagram’s 7 stage. The band will be recording video and live audio to document the event, and will release a video of the performance later this year. Chapman will also be joining them for a special two-drum set in at Norman Music Festival the night before at 11pm on the Opolis inside stage.

Sailor Poon was born in a musty garage-slash-bedroom as a playful, sarcasm-fueled response to the big red Texas patriarchy. Blending saxophone and thrift-store keyboards with elements of bands like The Stooges, Black Sabbath and The Butthole Surfers, they became known for their noisy, chaotic, high-energy performances. They’ve shared stages with the likes of King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, Oh Sees, Ty Segall and more. November 2017 saw the release of their debut EP,  B-Sides and Rarities, and the band is set to release their debut full length album in early 2020.
