The Wood Brothers have announced Musical Squares, the celebrated Nashville-based band’s first extended webcast appearance since the start of the pandemic. The performance will air on Wednesday, September 23rd at 8:30 p.m. ET with a 14-day re-stream option as part of the Live From Out There series streaming via LiveXLive.

Over the course of the 60-plus minute session, The Wood Brothers offer a career-spanning set of music that features both old favorites and new songs from their latest studio album, Kingdom In My Mind, released back in January. Additional highlights include a handful of behind-the-scenes vignettes that offer a peak into the band’s creative process as well as their ever-present, wry sense of humor with scenes like Oliver Wood taking a dip in his “rock star” swimming pool and Chris Wood harvesting vegetables from his garden.
“The pandemic has taken away something special that we’ve been doing for so long we almost took it for granted. Live music!” bassist Chris Wood noted in a press statement. “Now we’re all trapped inside computer squares, but we’re not going to let that stop us from making music and connecting with our fans. It’s a brave new world and this is our first step outside our comfort zone.”
Streaming tickets for the Musical Squares webcast are now on sale here. A portion of sales will be donated to Sweet Relief COVID-19 Fund, which provides financial assistance to career musicians and music industry workers who are struggling to make ends meet. Funds raised will go towards medical expenses, lodging, clothing, food and other vital living expenses for those impacted.
