  • Concert featuring Parlour Panther
    Artist Bio: Parlour Panther is the dreamy grit pop duo of Frankie and Lee, two trans non-binary spouses who have been making music together since 2014. The time they’ve spent together and dedicated to crafting their music has resulted in a uniquely personal and carved out electro-infused sound with synths, guitars and a drum machine. Their live performance is undeniably tight with a palpable chemistry, a vibe that is joyful and at ease, and “vocal melodies [that] add a warm glow to the songs” (Shawn Conner, Vancouver Sun). With influences like King Princess, HAIM, and The Black Keys, this self-produced duo made their sophomore LP Retrograde in their at-home studio.  Find out more at: @parolour.panther
