Porcupine started in 2006 in La Crosse, WI, where singer/guitarist Casey Virock had previously launched another indie rock trio, Space Bike. Now based in Minneapolis, the band has evolved to full maturity, a potent force propelled by drummer Ian Prince and the most recent addition to the band, bassist Greg Norton, formerly of Hüsker Dü. During Bands on the Boulevard, enjoy a free outdoor concert every Tuesday night in July in the History Center courtyard. Bring a lawn chair and pack a picnic or purchase food from Market House by D'Amico.
