I decided to take a nap before writing this story today, and just as I was drifting off to sleep, I was struck by the most “genius” idea. “Wooden Shjips!” I said to myself. “I’ll write a piece entirely using seafaring words, such as “setting sail for tour” or “Ahoy! The San Francisco psych garage band is embarking on a mighty voyage across the East Coast.” Then I woke up and I realized how stupid the idea was. THANK GOD FOR NAPS RIGHT???
So now here you have it, just a simple story about how awesome this tour will be and about how horribly deficient the right side of my brain is. The cool thing about this tour is that Wooden Shjips are performing new musical arrangements for the 92Y Tribeca’s Halloween weekend screening of the spooooky film The Wicker Man. I will now refrain from any “dad” jokes about it being rated “Arrrrrr.” You’re welcome!
