The Woolen Men Taking Off

It should not come as much surprise that momentous things are afoot for Portland's The Woolen Men. 2013 saw the band put out 3 different releases and sign with Woodsist Records. By just March of 2014 The Woolen Men have already released a split 7" vinyl with Spookies, and a four track Quick Trips EP

Currently on tour in promotion for their freshly released Quick Trips EP, Tuesday night The Woolen Men will play at Baby's Allright as main support for Brooklyn based Woods, along with Weyes Blood and Cassie Ramone. Currated by Brooklyn Vegan, this show is a part of the Red Bull concert series, Sound Select Presents: New York

Only a week following the Sound Select show, The Woolen Men will be packing up and flying over the Atlantic for a 20 show, month long tour though Europe. Have fun and good luck boys, here's wishing you well from back home in Portland. - Travis Leipzig

   

Total Slacker, Hunters, XRay Eyeballs + Cassie Ramone at The Studio on 02.14

A not to be missed Valentine’s Day show is slated to go down at Webster Hall’s Studio in Manhattan on 2/14. Presented by Kristina Tequila, the star studded night will be headlined by scene veterans Total Slacker (pictured and streaming below). Their classic track “Crystal Necklace” set a standard for that low down, creep-along groove with appropriately reverberated boy-girl tandem vocals. Expect more of that and surely some bowl-cut fueled guitar jam-outs too. Hunters have been making waves all over the place this year, and one would expect their performance on this night to be just as punk-rock manic as recent shows of theirs have demonstrated. XRay Eyeballs spent a good portion of last year touring all through Europe. That kind of road-honed experience will surely be on display as they continue to showcase songs from their latest album “Splendor Squalor.” Opening the night will be none other than the tireless Cassie Ramone, who appears to be effortlessly juggling gigs between her bands The Babies, Vivian Girls and now these solo acoustic shows. -Dave Cromwell
