Preview – Skinny Lister at The O2 Academy, Saturday 9th March 2019

Almost a homecoming gig, March sees the return of Alt Folk heroes Skinny Lister, as the 6 piece play their biggest Leicester show to date. Siblings Lorna and Max Thomas are Leicestershire natives and coming back to the city they grew up in always sees the band pull out all the stops!

A beautiful combination of English folk melodies and a punk rock stage performance, Skinny Lister never fail to disappoint. The band are a true festival favourite and have toured with likes of Frank Turner, Flogging Molly, and the Dropkick Murphys. Expect crowdsurfing, expect flagons of cider, expect a hell of a good time. Support on the night comes from Northern Irish quintet Wood Burning Savages and Milwaukee-based tunesmith, Trapper Schoepp.

Skinny Lister play Leicester’s O2 Academy, Saturday 9th March. Tickets are priced at £15 and are available from Ticket Master or from the venue.
