The Hundred Acre Woods

Sorority Noise to bring the commotion to Amherst

Riding on the release of May's Forgettable LP, Hartford's Sorority Noise is heading to Amherst, MA, next Monday, August 18. Fitting to its name, the band’s lyrics span the insecurities of college life – take, for example, “When we broke up you told me to try and find myself … so I found myself in someone else's bed,” from “Dirty Ickes” – but the band’s groovy punk inspires one to dance through the darkness rather than sulk alone. Check out Sorority Noise in Massachusetts’ most famous college town alongside Three Man Cannon, Sexy Girls, The Hundred Acre Woods and Amherst folk-punks Dérive at Amherst's Unitarian Meeting House at 7 p.m. on August 18. – Jake Reed (@jakejreed)

   

Weekend Warrior, March 14 - 16

This Weekend Warrior pick - we’re keeping it locals only! Alt-folk five-piece The Hundred Acre Woods have been on the rise, coming up through Philly’s DIY community. They’ll be the headliner and anchor of this Saturday’s showcase at Kung Fu Necktie. The group will be supported by another folk-tinged Deli favorite that we predict good things happening to in the not so distant future, Maitland, electro-rock crew SHMNS, and current Featured Artist(s) Poll Nominee, Broken Beak. Take advantage of your good sense to not be at SXSW this weekend. Kung Fu Necktie, 1250 N. Front St., 8pm, $5, 21+ - H.M. Kauffman

New Video: "City Lights" (Acoustic) - The Hundred Acre Woods

We've shared plenty of words with you lately about The Hundred Acre Woods so here's an acoustic performance of "City Lights," one of our favorites from their new EP Cold In The Morning, which is now available on vinyl via Lame-O Records. It was recorded in their van by Table Three Media, and should be a nice warm-up for the band's release show this evening at Golden Tea House with Alex G, SHMNS, I Kill Giants, and Au Revoir.

   

New The Hundred Acre Woods EP Available for Streaming

It officially comes out on January 14 via Philly indie label Lame-O Records. Stay warm, stay in, and enjoy the tunes!
