Brooklyn-based psych-folk-indie group Woods are coming to the Great American Music Hall in early August before heading down into that great, wild and expansive muse of Henry Miller, Jack Kerouac and Richard Braughtigan — Big Sur.

The band is on tour in support of their forthcoming release, Bend Beyond, due out September 18 on Woodsist Records.

Woods take the Great American on August 3, with supporting act Peaking Lights, and head to the Henry Miller Memorial Library the following day for the sold out Woodsist Festival, which runs from August 4-5 and features many local psych, garage and folk acts, including Thee Oh Sees, The Fresh and Onlys and White Fence.

The Bay Bridged will be covering the Woodsist Festival, so check back in for updates on that. Until then, you can watch this fancy video of Woods performing “Bend Beyond.”
