We have just received intelligence that Agent Number 6, Agent Sure Shot, and Agent X-9 are in the area. They have a license to rock. Repeat, they have a license to rock.

Translation? International Espionage!, a Minneapolis-based trio offering spy rock, is coming to the Trunk Space. No matter what you may think of group leader Tim Holly, bassist Aaron Sapp, and drummer Aaron Lemay’s punk-inspired tunes and spy-themed performances – they all dress in black, ninja-style, while using the aforementioned code names – you have to agree that they have the best gimmick ever. However, their music is good enough that they don’t even really need it.
