Seriously! These guys rock soooo hard. They are a bluegrass band from Carbondale who would really rock Wakarusa and believe me, yall will love 'em.
Anyone listen to WBG?

As natives of Carbondale we're naturally big fans. 8)

I've only seen Woodbox Gang once and really enjoyed their set. I've been wanting to check them out again. I think they would be a great addition.

Yeah, they rock pretty hard. Hoefully I will get an email saying that they have been signed. ;)
If the Woodbox Gang isn't added, well then I ain't even coming.

I know the Woodbox Gang wants to play at Wakarusa, they told me so!

Woodbox Gang is a hard working band with great talent. Wakarusa would be foolish not to have them play.

I absolutely love The Woodbox Gang! It would be totally awesome to see them at Wakarusa this year! Will someone make it so? :P

bring on the Box!

The Wakarusa venue will simply NOT BE COMPLETE without the presence of The Woodbox Gang!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Once they've played, you'll demand them back EVERY YEAR!!!!! People will come from everywhere just to get a taste of the BOX! I should know, I have been watching them almost every month for two years!!!!!!!!!! They are addictive.....
03-10-2005, 10:27 PM
Standing-room only crowds clamor to see them every time they play, some of us creepy stalkeresque devotees who see them like clockwork every month.
Wakarusa is a perfect venue for this band, and I've no doubt they'll be dragging many of us behind them like sad little groupies in cowboy hats.
Bring on the Woodbox, Wakarusa!

Is Woodbox Gang booked yet?
Hey, just wanted to say that if \"The Box\" was to get signed then I would think about going to this thing. IT sounds really cool, and my favorite band being there would probably make it worth while.
The Woodbox gang is by far the most established band here in Southern Illinois. What is amazing about that is their music is so out of the mainstream for the area that any group without as much artistic dignity would probably be doing covers to get shows. They have been \"keeping it real\" around here for 6 years.

if you guys booked the gang, they would keep the party going, i promise... wow.. i hope they get the gig.. that would be so f*cking awesome!
03-28-2005, 05:38 PM
I hope the Woodbox Gang does get booked because they are my favorite band. It's really nice to have a local band that plays ORIGINAL music that does not sound like mainstream modern rock crap. They get new fans everywhere they go!

Woodbox would be an awesome addition to this festival.

Bright Eyes is the musical vehicle of Conor Oberst, a young singer-songwriter from Nebraska, who first attracted the attention of the indie music world in 1994 -- when he was just 14-years old -- as the singer and guitarist for Commander Venus. After releasing two albums, Commander Venus broke up, but not before the band members started their own record label, Saddle Creek. Since then, Saddle Creek has served as the outlet for such bands as Cursive and Lullaby for the Working Class, as well as Oberst's current project, Bright Eyes. Incorporating a rotating line-up of players, Bright Eyes is anchored by Oberst's frayed lyrics and his shivering, unnerving voice. Bright Eyes' first two albums, A Collection of songs written and recorded between 1995-1997 and Letting Off the Happiness were released in 1998. The latter was recorded with help from members of Neutral Milk Hotel and Of Montreal among others. The EP Every Day and Every Night followed in 1999, and in mid-2000 Bright Eyes released the acclaimed Fevers and Mirrors. Oh Holy Fools was issued a year later. Oberst took time to dedicate to his Desaparecidos project before returning to the studio in 2002. Lifted or The Story is in the Soil, Keep Your Ear to the Ground was released that summer. In 2004, Bright Eyes released several EPs, including Home, Vol.4, a collaboration with Spoon's Britt Daniel and One Jug of Wine, Two Vessels. ~ Jason Nickey, All Music Guide
