Beards, Ballads and Beers: Matt Woods at Low Spirits

It's a bear! It's Bigfoot! No—it's Matt Woods taking the stage at Low Spirits (2823 Second Street NW) tomorrow night. All the way from Knoxville, Tenn., this shaggy singer, songwriter and guitarist is bringing his raw and gritty talent to country and Americana. On tour repping his fifth album With Love From Brushy Mountain, Woods has a rough and heartbreaking voice that brings Zac Brown to mind. Don't be surprised if you find a tear in your beer during “Deadman's Blues” and “Ain't No Living.” Yet, have no fear that this will be a country sob-fest as tunes like “Beating Down My Door” and “Days of Walking” will have you kicking up your heels, and gorgeously remixed covers of favorites like Sarah McLachlan's “Angel” will have you singing along. This 21+ gig starts at 9:30pm with openers Russell James Pyle and The Whiskey Priest, so get ready for a little bit of country and a little bit of rock 'n' roll.
