Wooden Shjips: The Soft J

Heralding the psychedelic past of their San Franciscan home while also forging bravely and (occasionally) blindly into a chic future of freak-out rock, Wooden Shjips are hitting Brooklyn and Philly in support of their new album, West, out now on Thrill Jockey. They’ll be making stops at the Music Hall Of Williamsburg on Nov. 10 and Kung Fu Necktie on Nov. 11, both with Birds Of Avalon. Both nights are sure to be blinding in their psych-out bliss and populated almost exclusively by weirdos. Rock and roll, children—and rock and roll children. Right on.
