When joke supergroup Salvador Dali Parton announced that they would be playing  six shows around Nashville on Saturday night, no one really knew exactly what to expect. Formed by members Justin Young of The Vaccines, Winston Marshall of Mumford & Sons, Gil Landry of Old Crow Medicine Show, Mike Harris of Apache Relay, and Jake Orrall of JEFF the Brotherhood, the possibilities for the style of the band’s musical offerings ranged from upbeat folk to hard-hitting punk to moody country-blues.

The band came onstage at the High Watt to a surprisingly small crowd, mostly made up of college kids and thirthysomething Mumford & Sons fans. SDP appeared to be celebrating Halloween a bit early, all dressed in costume. Most festive was Mumford’s Marshall, who was dressed in drag, including a pair of fishnet tights that ripped more and more as the night went on. As the set began, it turned out to be almost entirely comprised of droning, satirical black metal and ended with a classic short, fast and loud punk number that sent the crowd into a frenzy and resulted in a very short-lived mosh pit, much to the chagrin of some of the older members of the audience.

After a mad rush to load out and get to the next venue on time, the band played a second show at Exit/In, where Marshall pulled a fan onstage and slow danced with him for the entire duration of one of the band’s songs, an off-beat country tune with rather macabre lyrics.

As the band made their way to the stage for their third show, Marshall wandered through the crowd, kissing fans’ cheeks at random and leaving behind traces of bright pink lipstick. His antics continued onstage, where he (accidentally) knocked down a ceiling panel with his guitar and played a full song while laying down by Young’s feet.

Following the Stone Fox, the group played the Zombie Prom at dive bar Springwater before heading across town to play their second to last show of the night, a house show in a grungy, overcrowded basement. The group ended the night with a final appearance at FooBAR. in East Nashville.

For those who missed the festivities, the band supposedly recorded a live album throughout the night, though it is currently unclear when it will be released.

Members of JEFF, Mumford & Sons, Old Crow and More to Form Salvador Dali Parton, Play Six Shows This Saturday ]

From Nashville Scene:
Thursday, October 24, 2013
Words: D. Patrick Rodgers

With All Hallows’ Eve knocking at our door, now seems as good a time as any to get together with your friends and try something completely outlandish. Like, I dunno, say … forming a band with four of your pals (all of whom play radically different types of music), naming yourself something ridiculous (a mash-up in the tradition of Guantanamo Baywatch), writing and rehearsing all of your material in two days, and playing six shows in one night.

That’s precisely what the members of Salvador Dali Parton intend to do. According to a press release sent our way by local label Infinity Cat, SDP is a supergroup made up of Jake Orrall (JEFF the Brotherhood), Mike Harris (Apache Relay), Winston Marshall (Mumford & Sons), Justin Hayward-Young (The Vaccines) and Gil Landry (Old Crow Medicine Show), and they’ll be performing six shows here in Nashville this Saturday, Oct. 26. Right on, sounds legit. But what does their material sound like? “We’d love to tell you,” says the release. “But the band hasn’t even practiced together yet.” Further details:

They’ll be writing their first songs on Thursday. Having their first full band rehearsal on Friday. And performing their first shows on Saturday. 6 shows to be exact.

Chances are that if you make it to a venue in Nashville on Saturday night, you’ll have a pretty good chance of seeing the band performing.

What to expect? Here again. We just don’t know. But it’s going to be scary. And fun.

The band has already made plans to record all the gigs and thusly release a live album, compiling the best of the performances. With this many chances to perform, we should see some interesting results.

The release says that the six performances take place as follows: 6:45 p.m. at The High Watt; 8 p.m. at Exit/In; 9 p.m. at The Stone Fox; 9:45 p.m. at Springwater; 11 p.m. at Coyote Ranch (house show); and a sixth show to be announced day-of.

So, who plans on hitting all six shows? There will be some other good action in there. The High Watt performance is before My So-Called Band’s Halloween blowout, J. Roddy Walston is headlining Exit/In, and Grooms and Jasmin Kaset will be at The Stone Fox. And what the hell will Salvador Dali Parton sound like? I think it’ll be avant-garde country-hop. See a clip for reference after the jump.
