The Scarring Party
Please note: due to personal illness, Erin Jorgensen will not be joining The Scarring Party for this performance as previously planned.
Milwaukee quartet the Scarring Party perform tuba, accordion and banjo driven end time music that draws on the influence of 20s and 30s music hall, Lomax folkways recordings and 70s punk. In five years, the four-piece have attracted a growing following and shared a stage with a diverse range of acts, including Daniel Johnston, Polyphonic Spree, Secret Chiefs 3, Why?,Tilly & the Wall, the Ditty Bops and Margot & the Nuclear So and So's.
Scarring Party performances combine low-key showmanship with vaudevillian spectacle. The more confounding part of their aesthetic is the role of typewriters, 40lb cast iron bells, unorthodox percussion and Daniel Bullock's warbling tenor delivered through the crackling, victrola veneer of a hand-built copper microphone. Their unique sound and aesthetic may recall an age gone by, but the Scarring Party's unique voice rests comfortably outside of any era.
