Woods & R. Stevie Moore are playing at The End tonight in Nashville. Here’s why you should go.
Woods are a Brooklyn, New York band that has a pretty sweet lo-fi folk sound. They’ve been touring around with a lot of other bands that we like over here, including Kurt Vile & Ducktails (which is that side project for Real Estate’s lead guitarist). They formed back in 2005, and began their own Woodsist record label to release their work. To date, they have six releases, and are touring now to support their most recent full length released earlier this year titled Sun and Shade. I attached a SoundCloud link to their single “Pushing Onlys” below, and you can listen to more over at their SoundCloud page.
I think the opener might even be more interesting to check out tonight. R. Stevie Moore has been a pioneer of progressive pop music for about 40 years now. The veteran Nashvillian spent a lot of his life living in the northeast, but has recently moved back to his hometown of Nashville. He has spent most of life as an underground musical nomad. He has hundreds of releases (mostly via cassette tape), tons of videos that are available on YouTube, and he is arguably one of the most influential underground musicians around. I’ve attached a video about that below. You can check out his partial discography on his bandcamp page.
If you want to see an underground living legend and some pretty awesome lo-fi indie folk, the End in Nashville is where you want to be. Things get started at 9pm with openers Jovontaes and T.Rust. Tickets are $8. Get out and see some live music!
