We're pleased to announce the next BrooklynVegan-curated installment of the Red Bull Sound Select series of shows happens April 22 at Baby's All Right in Brooklyn. Headlining the show will be Woods whose new album, With Light And With Love, is out April 14 via the band's own Woodsist label (our show will double as their record release show). You can stream the title track below.
Entrance to the show will be $3 with an RSVP or $10 at the door otherwise (no advanced tickets). First 100 people through the door will get a ticket good for one of the black light-friendly posters you see pictured at the top of the post (you collect your poster on your way out).
Also playing the show are Portland, OR's The Woolen Men who released their self-titled debut album last year via Woodsist, and who will have released a new limited 7" vplit with Eyelids via Off Records one day before the show. To quote the label:
-Following the release of The Woolen Men's self-titled LP on Woodist Records and Eyelids "Seagulls Into Submission" 7" on Off Records these bands bring their loose and frenetic approach to the proceedings. The Woolen Men scrape Mark E. Smith over the head with their version of The Fall's "Psycho Mafia" while Eyelids lovingly churn the insides out of The Clean's classic "Anything Could Happen." Comes with very special packaging: a clear blue double sided flexi in a hand stamped and numbered box with particles of information, show fliers and a download card with 2 additional unreleased songs from the bands made exclusively for this release. Only 250 copies will be available. When these are gone, they are gone!The Woolen Men will be coming out to Brooklyn from Portland especially for this show.
The show also features Weyes Blood whose new album will be out later this year via Mexican Summer, and former Vivian Girl and current member of The Babies, Cassie Ramone who will be announcing some news of her own soon too. .
This will be the fourth BV-curated RBSS show; our previous installments were the Pig Destroyer/Dysrythmia/Trenchgrinder/Mother Brain, Bouncing Souls/Brian Fallon/Aye Nako/Nude Beach and Foxygen/Amen Dunes/LODRO/Prince Rupert's Drops.

You may remember that Portland's Woolen Men released their debut LP on Woodsist last year. The band are following that up with a new EP, Quick Trips, which will be out February 4 via San Francisco label Log Lady. Like on their album, the songs hear owe a debt to the '80s sounds of the Pacific Northwest and New Zealand, but the band chart their own very catchy direction. We've got the premiere of "Real FX" from that which you can stream below.
While Woolen Men don't have any East Coast shows lined up at the moment, they will be tooling around the West Coast in February and hit Europe in May. All those dates are listed below...
Portland, OR trio Woolen Men are gearing up to release their self-titled debut which will be out via Woodist on March 5. The band make a shambly rumble that mixes a variety of influences, from Pacific Northwest legends The Wipers to the lo-fi Flying Nun-style pop, and that definitely puts them right in the Woodsist wheelhouse. You can stream the Clean-ish "Head on the Ground" and album-opener, "Mayonaise," below.
Woolen Men will be heading out on tour in late spring, which includes three stops in NYC: a tour kick-off at Shea Stadium on May 19 and then two shows at the end of the tour at Cake Shop on June 6 and Silent Barn on June 7. All dates are listed below.
