About

front desk Parker House is located on Commercial Drive and Parker Street. We have hosted international artists such as Timmy Straw (Portland), Canadian touring acts including Rae Spoon (Montreal) and Slow Down Molasses (Saskatoon), and many great local acts including; e.s.l., Wintermitts, Abramson Singers, Drawn Ship, Joyce Collingwood, AHNA, and many others

Our performance series have included

Deckfest!- An all day folk festival located on the 1200 square foot deck. Music included Sitar Matt, Christopher Smith, Blackberry Wood, The People Verses, People For Audio (Montreal) and many others.

Dark Breakfast- Dark Breakfast is a noise/metal/punk brunch held on Sunday afternoons. Our first Dark Breakfast was held on New Years Day 2011 and we made soup and snacks for folks to enjoy. ANHA, Mortimer and butternut squash soup cured New Year’s Eve hangovers.

House Show Series – We often offer Sunday afternoon matinee shows, and occasionally will host evening shows as well.

Small Room Series – Small Room Series, in partnership with Sad Mag, presents shows in various locations and explores small performance spaces. Performers included David Newberry and Hannah Epperson.

Sarah Sangster found the house a beautiful small white apartment piano that has seen plenty of use at the shows, as well as a PA sourced from a demolished Karaoke Bar. The living room has seen sitar, pedal steel guitar, accordian, ukelele and cello performances.
