A few years ago, Skinny Lister was enjoying mild success in its home country before being discovered in a hotel parking lot at SXSW. Already the darlings of the festival set in Europe, the band was discovered by the Dropkick Murphys’ manager, who witnessed the rowdy 5-piece in what lead singer Lorna Thomas described as “the world’s only mandolin solo in a glass lift.” The band was notorious for setting up anywhere and everywhere and playing to anyone who would listen. This approach, especially at SXSW, proved to be an effective one.
