DOWNEY - Canadian band Petunia and the Vipers will make a stop in Downey next month as part of an international tour.The tour kicked off Saturday in Vancouver, Canada and makes its way to the Epic Lounge on April 23. Here's how the band is described on their website: "Petunia and the Vipers thrive on the challenge of adding Latin rhythms to a country blues tune, or gypsy flavouring to a rockabilly standard. Petunia defies convention and yet there is some conservancy to his music. His honest, cut to the heart songwriting and multi-syllabic narratives would leave a lesser singer tongue-tied and breathless. I know, I've tried it. One of the many themes running through Petunia's lyrics relates to living life on one's own terms - fearlessly and without regret." Presale tickets are $7 (plus service charge) and can be purchased online at brownpapertickets.com/profile/309031. Tickets at the door are $10.
