Experience Wooden Shjips Live Tomorrow Night

November 9th, 2011


The psychedelic band Wooden Shjips consists of singer-guitarist Erik “Ripley” Johnson, drummer Omar Ahsanuddin, bassist-trumpeter Dusty Jermier and organist Nash Whalen. The quartet put out its first LP, the space-rock Wooden Shjips in 2007. Since then, the band has tightened its sound through touring and gone on to release a bunch of EPs, singles and a couple of albums, including this year’s West. And Wooden Shjips (above, performing “Home” for KXLU FM) plays Music Hall of Williamsburg tomorrow night, which works out great because the best way to experience this band is in person. Do it.
