PLS PLS storm the Star Bar in Atlanta, GA tonight for a free show to celebrate the release of their debut, EP EP on Tampa indie label 24 Hour Service Station, which features a bluesy David Bowie cum Mick Jagger inspired dude-ette featuring Elijah Jones of Southern Gothic stompers The Constellations.

PLS PLS (pronounced Please Please) conjure heady electronic-laced future rock anthems. Singer, songwriter & instrumentalist Dan Dixon’s self-produced debut, EP EP, spans musical styles from the 60’s Wall of Sound to 70's Rock to 80's Dance to Future Pop. The lulling hypnotic shuffle of "River Song" summons tribal ghosts downstream where they revive via the immigrant song of the wild “Here Come The Wolves.”

Four songs from PLS PLS are featured in Magnolia Pictures' horror sensation V/H/S, in theaters Friday October 5th and called by Rolling Stone "...the scariest, rawest horror movie of the year.”
