Listen to Skinny Lister at their free Vintage Store Pop-up Tour
Officially crowned the hardest working band in Britain due to their unrivalled number of performances at UK festivals last year, Skinny Lister are proud to announce a personal best, and the first of its kind: the free Vintage Store Pop-up Tour – four performances, four different east London venues, one afternoon.
After a glowing New Band Of The Day write up in The Guardian, (hailing them as “The English Pogues with better teeth”) and being signed up to the Vans Warped Tour, it seems this five-piece folk troupe really are on the up.
Skinny Lister are Daniel Heptinstall, Lorna Thomas, Maxwell Thomas, Sam Brace and Dan Gray who came together in the summer of 2009. United by their love of folk, jigs and the outdoors, the band have been riotously swinging the festival scene since day one, notching up an impressive 30 festivals last year.
Their live shows often feature a bric-a-brac merch stall, where you can treat yourself to old pocket watches, pub mirrors, tankards and a spectacular anchor or two. What better band to play a series of gigs at vintage stores? Though they’re not bringing it all with them for this mini-tour, there’ll be plenty to buy at each of the shops.
With the unrelenting, tenacious energy that carried them through their endless summer of touring, the band’s four-show extravaganza is not to be missed – come prepared for flagons of rum, armfuls of fun and the finest young folk group playing today.
