Anders Parker, tonight: the M Room, Philadelphia

Hi folks, if you're in the Philly region tonight, go see Anders Parker at the M Room (click for directions). Anders is a prolific songwriter, with an amazing voice, and has worked with and/or toured with Jay Farrar (Son Volt, Uncle Tupelo) and Richard Buckner (to name a couple), and also fronted the rock trio, Varnaline (guitar, vocals), and played guitar in Space Needle. Bob Mould liked Anders's songs enough to call him up and ask him if Varnaline wanted to support a tour his band was about to embark on. Tonight, he'll be doing an acoustic guitar set ("takin' it back, old school," he told me), and featuring material from his new double-album, "Skyscraper Crow." Check out a past performance below. For more, including discography, tour dates, interviews, songs & record reviews, go to his site, Anders Parker
