Strand of Oaks at Bowery Ballroom - 12/4/14 (via Scott Taylor)
Strand of Oaks just wrapped up their tour with Torres in NYC at Bowery Ballroom last night (12/4), after playing their hometown of Philly a day earlier. The Philly show included a cover of The Replacements' "Alex Chilton," which you can listen to below, via Stereogum. It's a pretty straightforward take but Strand of Oaks sound great doing it.
They're hanging around NYC and before they leave, they'll play a free 5 at 5 show at Ace Hotel tonight (12/5). Like all shows in that series, they'll be playing five songs at five o'clock. RSVP is open.
