Simple pleasures in a Sunday night show

Sunday, December 19th, 2010 at 9:41 AM

There is something divine about a Sunday night show, the mood is different, the crowd is different… the music feels better.

Perhaps it is a nod to the sanctity of Sunday, or maybe it just feels good to be tempted by the devil of dance on the Lord’s Day.

Tonight is no exception, and perhaps even a treat. The band Woody Pines will be playing at the crooked i tonight at 10 p.m.

The North Carolina act, named after the leader of the band, has been playing all over the country and it may just be the perfect confluence of musical tidings that they will be playing a Sunday night show in Erie.

I’ve had an opportunity to listen to some great Woody Pines music since the show was announced, especially the phantastic 2009 release “Counting Alligators.” This will be a great show, regardless of the night of the week, but there is just something special about Sunday night shows.

If you need anymore incentive, it will be the main stage debut for opening act Lilly Moon and the Taco Train… how could you go wrong with a line-up like that?
