Pretty Boy Thorson & the Falling Angels Bio:

Pretty Boy Thorson & The Falling Angels are a punk/country band from Minneapolis, MN. The band describes themselves as country, and their Gram-Parsons-tribute name and their adulation of Merle Haggard is just part of this. Most of their songs are constructed like country songs, and much of the content is country as well: heartache, loneliness, whiskey. The songs become punk rock with PBT’s loud-and-fast delivery, hoarse screaming vocals, and drunken expletive-filled live shows. The band’s originality lies in the mixing of these two tropes with a defiant introspection that appeals to the twentysomething what-the-hell-am-I-doing-with-my-life experience. Pretty Boy Thorson perform regularly in Minneapolis and Fargo, ND, and tour occasionally. The band is a live favorite in the punk rock community, and their albums have been well received by a broader audience.
