Tuesday Tip-Off: Sassparilla

Today’s Tip-Off is the Portland juggernaut of good times Sassparilla

Up there with The Woes as one of our all time favorite live bands, Sassparilla continues to be criminally unknown outside of their native Pacific Northwest.  Which is a shame, because this band stands head and shoulders above most of their brethren in the insurgent blues, cow-punk, washboard and whiskey genre.  We first fell in love with them in 2007 at Pickathon, and although the band has gone through a bit of a line-up change and restructuring – they remain as amazing as always.  Here’s a few clips we could find online to help share the joy.  These are all of the “classic” line-up of the band from a few years ago, but hopefully they’ll get some new ones up soon.  Or better yet – you can use this as an excuse to travel to Portland and see it for yourself.

Check out the band online here, and grab their albums here.
