The Wood Brothers have announced ‘Musical Squares,’ the celebrated Nashville-based band’s first extended webcast appearance since the outset of the pandemic. The performance will air on Wednesday, September 23 at 8:30pm ET / 5:30pm PT with a 14-day re-stream option as part of the ‘Live From Out There’ series streaming via LiveXLive.
“The pandemic has taken away something special that we’ve been doing for so long we almost took it for granted. Live music!” states The Wood Brothers’ Chris Wood. “Now we’re all trapped inside computer squares, but we’re not going to let that stop us from making music and connecting with our fans. It’s a brave new world and this is our first step outside our comfort zone.”
Over the course of the 60-plus minute session, The Wood Brothers offer a career spanning set of music that features both old favorites and new songs from their latest studio album, ‘Kingdom In My Mind’ that was released earlier this year. Additional highlights include a handful of behind the scenes vignettes that offer a peak into the band’s creative process, as well as their ever present, wry sense of humor with scenes like Oliver taking a dip in his “rock star” swimming pool and Chris harvesting vegetables from his garden.
Tickets for ‘Musical Squares’ are on-sale now with a portion of sales being donated to Sweet Relief COVID-19 Fund, which provides financial assistance to career musicians and music industry workers who are struggling to make ends meet. Funds raised will go towards medical expenses, lodging, clothing, food and other vital living expenses for those impacted.
