Brooklyn band Woods played at Johnny Brenda’s on Friday night where they brought along their lo-fi, folky and, at times, spacey jams. It was a pretty packed crowd, but there were weird vibes going on between the audience and the band members. The band didn’t really say much while the crowd didn’t really know when to applaud due to the songs blending into one another. Most of the tunes carried on well individually but a few of the band’s long, spaced out jams caused audience members to lose interest and carry on with whatever conversation, whether in-person or via text message, they had going.

Nicos Gun video for “Soldier”

leave a comment »

Philly kids, Nicos Gun, have been all over the place as of late, playing The Roots Picnic, Camp Bisco, the XPoNential Festival, to name a few. They’re taking a little break from touring to record their debut LP, but found time to make a video for their song, “Soldier”. If you’re from the Philadelphia area, you’ll recognized the Fishtown/Kensington area in the film. Enjoy!

Sidenote: Check out the cover story about Nicos Gun I wrote/shot for JUMP Philly HERE.
