Skinny Lister’s Vintage Store Pop-up Tour – Tuesday 15th May

Officially crowned the hardest working band in Britain by the PRS due to their unrivalled number of performances at UK festivals last year, Skinny Lister are proud to announce a personal best: four performances, four different east London venues, one afternoon.

The Vintage Store Pop-up Tour takes place on Tuesday 15th May:
2:00pm Beyond Retro Cheshire St, E2 6EJ
2:30pm Hunky Dory Brick Lane, E1 6SA
3:00pm Blitz Hanbury St, E1 5JP
4:00pm Paper Dress Curtain Road, EC2A 3AH

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 – which will see them play in 41 cities across the United States to over a million people – 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. The band soon came to the attention of festival impresario and all round good egg, Rob da Bank, who welcomed Skinny to the family fold and our Sunday Best Recordings label and their barnstorming debut album Forge & Flagon is released on Monday 11th June.
