Blues-Rock Duo the Wood Brothers Perform Tonight at Cafe du Nord

Sometimes flat and folksy, sometimes raggedy and guttural, Boulder-raised duo the Wood Brothers fall in the same vein as groups like the Black Keys: slack, bluesy guitar melodies, acoustic sonority, raw vocals that lend extra gravitas to songs about love and loneliness and the passage of time. Considering their divergent backgrounds — bassist Chris Wood came up in the New York jazz scene, while his brother Oliver played guitar in Atlanta and adopted a much rootsier style — theses guys show a level of musical depth that’s unparalleled in mainstream rock.
