Strand of Oaks





Weekend Warrior, September 4 - 7

Ok, so we admittedly were one the harshest critics of Made in America last year because of their unbelievable exclusion of talented homegrown Philly acts. Well, it seems that they are working on making it up to our city for the error of their ways with what might be the most local acts ever invited to the two-day festival.  Saturday is without a doubt when the Jay-Z-curated event brings out its heavy artillery with national and local names. If you want to find where your Philly peeps at, hanging at the Skate Stage will certainly be the place to see some familiar faces with Creepoid, Hop Along, Waxahatchee, Strand of Oaks, and Ground Up doing us proud. Meek Mill will also have the pleasure of sharing the Rocky Stage with heavy hitters Beyoncé, Modest Mouse, and De La Soul. On Sunday, you’ll find the lone Philly act Marian Hill bringing its sweet beats and alluring vocals to the Skate Stage. Ex-patriot Santigold is always a highlight of any bill that she appears on, and it’s certainly been way too long since we’ve heard anything from her. (Fingers crossed for a new album in works.) Enjoy your Labor Day Weekend, and sneak in some good drugs and drinks so you don’t have to consume any crappy, overpriced Budweiser - cheers! Made in America, Ben Franklin Parkway, 1pm, $150 (Sold Out), All Ages - Q.D. Tran

Strand of Oaks Sold-out Homecoming at Boot & Saddle Sept. 19 & 20

Strand of Oaks, a.k.a. Timothy Showalter, has been on a hefty tour in support of his latest LP HEAL. It will be finally ending this weekend with two sold-out tonight and tomorrow at Boot & Saddle, where he’ll be accompanied by tourmate Christopher Penny. However, Showalter won’t be home for long because next week he’ll be back at it again doing over a month-long tour in Europe. This is probably your last chance to catch him until December so make it count! Also, check out below another perfomance video that was just released yesterday of Oaks playing "Plymouth" from his session with Out Of Town FilmsBoot & Saddle, 1131 S.

New Track: "Pink Rabbits" (The National Cover) - Strand of Oaks

Strand of Oaks, a.k.a. Timothy Showalter, just shared his meaningful cover of The National's "Pink Rabbits." The track, which is found on 2013's Trouble Will Find Me, became the soundtrack to some recent rocky times for the local area singer-songwriter. You can read about his connection with the song from a post via Magnet (when he guest edited online in July) and stream it below. Strand of Oaks will be performing at The Boot & Saddle this weekend for two sold-out shows.

"The most important song for me in recent memory. A lot of music is great but not important. Listening to “Pink Rabbits” became mandatory for me. I would associate this song with my lost month or months last fall. I unfortunately discovered that drinking potato vodka alone with the only the National to keep you company can be dangerous. I would find myself talking with angels and other crazy shit when this song was on repeat. Then I realized I don’t have to get fucked up to love this record. This song saved me and destroyed me simultaneously."
