Back City Woods live at The Hummingbird in Downtown Macon
April 6, 2018 @ 10:00 pm - 2:00 am| $5
The South. A region loaded with history to say the least. What can be said about it that hasn’t already been said? Who needs another country act with a new angle on this sordid tale? Besides, if you’ve eaten your Grandma’s peach cobbler, haven’t you already had the best?
A band out of Middle Georgia called Back City Woods has thought about these perplexing issues and answers with yet another question.
Do you still hear the call of the westerly winds whispering through the pines at dusk while rocking in a chair on the porch sweet tea in hand, alone, with the thoughts of a life that could have been?
If your answer is yes, there’s hope left for the Southern life after all.
If no, spin that dusty record again for old times sake. For the future is in the past, and we’re all dead anyway.
You already know everything this band has to say, but they say it anyway, and they’re saying it with soul: louder & longer. They’ve released two award winning EP’s and now have a full length album: The Light. The Dark. The Dusk.
So what does this album bring to the table?
Fiddles, guitars, banjo, songs about heartbreak, small towns, and all that Southern stuff.
Also, it’s new, and it’s alive. Like you, like me, like the South. We’re here together sharing a semblance of similar existence, and everyday is new. So why experience the tales of the South from those who are decades in the past?
There comes a time when Grandma can’t make peach cobbler anymore, do we all stop eating cobbler?
As life moves forward, as you move forward, so does music. Back City Woods: The South, today.
