PUSS N BOOTS RELEASE DEBUT ALBUM "NO FOOLS, NO FUN"; APPEAR ON FALLON

PUSS N BOOTS RELEASE DEBUT ALBUM

July 15 2014

Puss n Boots’ debut album, No Fools, No Fun, is out today and the trio will celebrate with a record release show tonight at the Bell House in Brooklyn, NY. The band will make its national television debut on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” tomorrow, July 16. Puss n Boots – which was founded by Sasha Dobson, Norah Jones and Catherine Popper – will be performing  “Don’t Know What It Means,” an original song penned by Jones for No Fools, No Fun. The band will appear on “CBS Saturday” on August 16.
 
Puss n Boots gives fans a behind-the-scenes look at the making of No Fools, No Fun in a new video that launched today HERE.  The album includes five originals plus seven cover tunes, including songs made famous by Johnny Cash, Neil Young, George Jones and Wilco. Elle praised the trio’s “honeyed harmonies” and M Magazine put the album on “The Must List," noting, “This summer’s all-purpose soundtrack comes courtesy of Puss N Boots…[No Fools, No Fun] sounds as good at parties as it does in your headphones.”
 
The trio’s upcoming radio appearances include the nationally syndicated Acoustic Café (this week http://acafe.com/), WFUV-New York (July 24) and NPR’s World Café (early August). SiriusXM station Outlaw Country premiered a one-hour Puss n Boots special this past weekend and it will air tonight at 8 PM ET and repeat on Thursday, July 17, at 11 PM ET. You can view Puss n Boots’ recent Wall Street Journal Café performance and interview HERE and listen to the band’s WNYC “Soundcheck” session HERE.
 
Puss n Boots’ East Coast tour is underway and will include performances at the 9:30 Club in Washington, DC (July 17), the Theatre of Living Arts in Philadelphia (July 18) and the Newport Folk Festival (July 26). See below for itinerary. The band has been playing live together since 2008. In addition to numerous headline shows, they have performed at the Bridge School Benefit, played stadiums with the Beastie Boys on the “Get Out The Vote” tour and joined Wilco onstage at Madison Square Garden.
