Woods to play Deaf Institute – Tuesday 15th March 2011

Woods are set to drop by Manchester’s Deaf Institute this week as part of their short UK tour. The New Yorkers’ lo-fi psychedelic folk should work brilliantly inside Manchester’s best small music venue and tickets for the event are still available.

Woods have earned a reputation as a fine live act, with extended improvised jams, fuzzy guitar tones and a 60’s groove central to their sound. It is unusual to see a modern band create such a dramatic distinction between studio recordings and live performance; but this contrast has become the hallmark of everything great about the band.

Fans can also look forward to an appearance on Mark Riley’s 6music radio show at 7pm on the day of the gig.
