Woods played Johnny Brendas last Friday 08/12/2011(photos)

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.
