Wood Brothers to play Helsinki Hudson


The Wood Brothers’ fifth studio album (with several live sets interspersed), 2015’s Paradise, begins with the song “Singin’ for Strangers.” Over a bawdy, sh*t-kickin’ Harvest-era Neil Young groove, Oliver Wood slathers a seemingly endless stream of well-crafted puns and double entendres. It is a pretty good summation of what has always been genuine and what has always been goofy about this band. It’s a groove-folk, cosmic-country and thoroughly eccentric brand with surprisingly wide appeal across genre lines. Recorded at Dan Auerbach’s Easy Eye studio in Nashville, Paradise is the Wood Brothers’ most successful and most energetic set to date.

Frequent performers in the region, the Wood Brothers visit Helsinki Hudson on Friday, March 4 at 9 p.m. Seth Walker opens. Reserved seats cost $38, general admission $30.
