They wood if they could

I wasn't quite sure what to expect from Woodhands; I've seen mainman Dan Werb before with Spitfires and Mayflowers (he's part of that Henri Faberge and The Adorables crowd, as is Laura Barrett), so with their name maybe some kind of off-kilter yet rootsy concoction? Uh, no. More like Holy Fuck crossed with The Hi Lo Trons, but just two guys (the other is Paul Banwatt, also of The Rural Alberta Advantage and a few other outfits).

The keytar was the first giveaway.


Dan and Paul were joined by Maylee Todd (also an Adorable), who I thought I recognized earlier in the evening. The glasses and lack of strategically ripped clothing threw me off.

Dan puts his hands in the air like he just don't care.

Maylee - something about the projection screen background makes me think of American Apparel ads ...

Laura Barrett also joined the duo on stage - yeesh, these guys are half way to being an octet.

Remember, both of these people are in The Adorables. Amateurs should not attempt to be this adorable without proper supervision.

Properly miking a kalimba is a tricky business.

They had at least some of the crowd up and dancing.
