The closing band at last Friday’s epic show at Market Hotel was the most established of all five bands — Brooklyn’s “acid folk” veterans Woods. The live Woods is quite a bit more “acid” than the freak-folk sound of their studio releases. As the band eased into the set with a lilting jam reminiscent of A Saucerful of Secrets-era Pink Floyd, the remaining diehards (about half the crowd) were treated to thirty-five minutes of edgy psychedelia which culminated in two covers. Each time we have seen Woods, the set included Graham Nash’s “Military Madness”, but for this show the band also included the Dead Milkmen’s “V.F.W.”, for an oddly matched yet appropriate anti-war segue.

We recorded this set from the same location as the previous three recordings. The band has some feedback problems with the vocal microphone and the mix never quite lined up. However, the sound quality is again quite authentic. Enjoy!

    Do you happen to have a full setlist?

    Sorry, Jeremy was too busy packing up when I spoke to him after the show. He offered to write down a setlist but I felt like it was late and I was intruding on his time, so I told him not to worry about it.
    Perhaps a friendly email to the woodist site might work.
