Wooden Wand (CANCELLED)
Sun 28th Apr 2013 @ The Hope & Ruin

When: Sun 28th Apr 2013
Time: 8:00pm
Age restriction: 18+

New York based James Jackson Toth, known to the world as Wooden Wand, is a maverick, good-hearted troubadour whose blend of smoky Americana has been garnering plaudits for the last decade. Unafraid to mix psychedelic workouts with sweet and soulful country, his varied and prolific output has resulted in a wealth of lyrically rich songs; the kind whose lines stick in your head for a lifetime.

Says Swans frontman and head of Young God Records Michael Gira, James Jackson Toth’s “got that picaresque quality that Dylan had in his heyday, wherein the shambolic narrator undergoes various travails and epiphanies—harrowing, bleak and darkly comical—in the course of a narrative, then leaves you mystified, both smiling and sad.”
He’s just released his third album in two years, ‘Blood Oaths Of The New Blues’ on Fire Records, which has already picked up glowing reviews in Uncut Magazine, Pitchfork, The Sunday Times and Time Out.
