Get snakebitten by Petunia and the Vipers

Hard-to-categorize Vancouver band hits Victoria for Friday night show

Looking for a little adventure in your music listening?

You’ll find it in spades this Friday at the First Church of Christ, Scientist, when Petunia & the Vipers – the “Big Band” version – hits Victoria with their hard-to-categorize, but infectious sound.

The Vancouver-based band, led the man known simply as Petunia, describe themselves on their website as playing “original music combining elements of classic 1920’s, 30’s 40’s, 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s country, country blues, western swing, alt country rock, Mexicana, French cabaret, Romanian, ragtime, jazz, punk and folk music.”

Aside from performing material from their last six albums, on this tour the band is featuring their latest release Lonesome, Heavy and Lonesome, billed as their most sophisticated and varied album to date.

Petunia & The Vipers kick off at 7:30 p.m., with doors opening at 6:45 at 1205 Pandora Ave. Tickets, $25 (or $30 at the door), are available in advance at Nicholas Randall Ltd. on Oak Bay Avenue, and Lyle’s Place on Yates St.
