This Saturday at MoDaddy’s

Georgia-based trio The Woodgrains write,

“As if you took the blue pill….

“The trees are beginning to morph into colors of the rainbow, leaves flutter through the air aimlessly, and cool nights and full moons with a clockwork orange ambiance fill the days of October. Its hard not to daydream a nostalgic fantasy similar to a Beatles music video.

“To welcome Fall and further your daydream, The Woodgrains are coming back to town. A Psychedelic/Folk trio dragging their roots from the heartland of southern folk, Waycross, Georgia. The band has recently relocated to the musical haven, Athens, Georgia and taken the town far far down the yellow brick road. Within a year, The Woodgrains were nominated for the ‘Best New Band’ and ‘Best Live Show.’ You can find us on Facebook, Reverbnation, and all over google. You can listen to our album and check out some live video.”

(It’s actually kinda tricky to google the band, because there’s Woodgrain from Austin, Texas, who pop up as well. To save you from confusion, here’s video:)

The Woodgrains play Mo Daddy’s on Saturday, Oct. 2. Asheville’s own indie-rock trio Grammmer School — winners of the recent RiverFest Battle of the Bands — headlines. 9 p.m., $5.
