The Wooden Birds play The Mohawk

Well folks, The Wooden Birds are winding down their tour but they're making a stop at, the much-lauded, Mohawk before things are over. You can still get yourself some tickets for the quality price of $10-$12. The latest album from The Wooden Birds is out now on Barsuk Records, it's called Two Matchsticks and features members of Broken Social Scene, as well as Matt Pond PA. Did you know the band's frontman, Andrew Kenny, actually has a residence here in Austin? I'm not sure if he truly lives here all the time but it kind of makes sense why the tour would wind-down in your hometown right?

Local band, ((sounder)) will be opening for The Wooden Birds tomorrow night. For those of you who don't know, {{sounder}} is the music project of visual artist, video director and musician Mike Aho. Aho has done videos for Bonnie Prince Billy and is also known for a project he calls The Internet Shack for Thrasher Magazine. Yes, I learned all of this from the {{sounder}} MySpace page, which crashed my computer. A note to bands, please use a combination of Bandcamp and Wikipedia, thank you.
