Because Songs Matter


If you haven’t already caught them, alt-country music troubadours Matt Woods of Knoxville, TN and Adam Lee of Kansas City, MO have been playing shows together on their “Connoisseurs of Lesser Things” tour since February 16th and will make stops in the south and mid-west including many in Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Tennessee, and West Virginia through March 20th. They will also perform during the SXSW MidCoast Takeover Party held in Austin, TX from March 13th-16th.

On this current tour, each will be playing solo sets (in most cases). Woods will be playing songs off his albums The Matt Woods Manifesto and Broken Strings & Beer Specials: An Acoustic Retrospective, as well as songs from his new record slated for release in Fall 2013. Lee will be performing songs from his full-length solo record due out in Fall 2013, songs from an EP specially released for this joint tour, and records with his band The Dead Horse Sound Company, When the Spirits Move Me and Ghostly Fires.

    I sure like things that can be cast as alt country, and these two tracks sound real good. Regrettably, these shows are a long way from home.

    I usually catch Matt Woods whenever he plays in Gainesville, regrettably he played there this round the same day as the Daytona 500 and living in a NASCAR loving household that day is pretty much a holiday and you may NOT make any other plans lest you be cast out. I like having a roof therefore I did not make it.

    Got to see them in St. Pete and Tampa. Wonderful shows for Woods (as always). Love his energy on stage. Really glad to be introduced to Lee’s music and have been listening to his “When the Spirits Move Me” album with his full band way too much since the show.

    I’ve seen Matt many times on his swings through West Virginia, it’s always a good time. I don’t think I’m going to be able to catch this tour though, and that sucks.

    But winning this would ease the pain of that a little hahaa…

    Sadly I live a little too far to make any of these shows. South Dakota, looks like Truckstop Darlin’ is going to be close enough next month though. Looking forward to that.
