Woods was privileged enough to share the stage with the Vaselines Sunday night at the Bowery Ballroom. When I first arrived, arms full of equipment, I was greeted with a friendly smile and wave from Frances who was in the middle of their soundcheck. It was a lot of fun playing a bigger stage with good sound, and the whole night turned out great. Lots of friends, lots of family. After the show we wandered into the greenroom where they let us drink their beer and the above picture was taken.
Here are some pictures I ripped from Brooklyn Vegan.
Frances sure had a lude and crude way of passing time between songs. She said everything from "I don't suck, I blow" to "I like to drink the blood of virgin boys, so if you are a virgin boy please come find me after" all in her traditional Scottish accent. She seemed to have left the humor on the stage, though, seeing as within the few words that we exchanged she was as sweet as could be. That and, I couldn't tell what the fuck she was saying.
