San Francisco’s self-described ‘Punk crooners’ Junk Parlor are set to embark on their UK tour starting August 8 at The Bedlam in Balham, London. The 7 dates will see the band play across the south of England including London, Brighton, Plymouth and Nottingham before returning to their native California. Upon their return they’re set to play Hopmonk Tavern in Seabastopol, CA on September 1.
Jason Vanderford leads the band with vocals and acoustic guitar, accompanied by Calvin Lai’s ripping clarinet, Tim Bush’s growling bass and Robin Goodrich’s swaggering beat theirs is a dream perched precariously on the edge of a cliff.
Junk Parlour are an adventure down a path paved with Eastern European, vintage bellydance melodies and the band’s own brand of haunting original compositions. Leonard Cohen-esque vocals and poetry, ripping violin, cajon, percussion, drums, fretless electric bass, clarinet and electric guitar all come together to create an edgy dreamscape, as original as it is compelling.
Described by one fan as ‘Bohemian Crooner Punk’, Junk Parlour are often compared to artists such as Nick Cave, Tom Waits and Gogol Bordello.
As Junk Parlour continues to win fans across the globe, they’re set to release new single ‘Vultures and Weasles’ Sunday August 6 via download.
