headshandsfeat / MAW

Gaslight Gardens

Local songwriter Mike Roberts (also of Blue Orleans) is the engine behind headshandsfeat, an acoustic outfit that plays classic country rock and bluegrass. Expect covers from the likes of John Prine, Steve Earle, and The Rolling Stones in addition to a bevy of originals.

Judging by their song content, you wouldn’t want to let the women of MAW anywhere near your kids, husbands, or liquor cabinet. The local old-timey quintet sings about drug abuse, adultery, murder, hoboing, opium-smoking, Sterno-drinking, sticking their fingers in babies’ eyes, and other unsavory things on their long-in-the-works debut album “Advice for the Young and Foolish.” Some of the members hardly knew more than three chords when they started the band three years ago, but they’ve developed into a slick-pickin’ quintet in the tradition of the Carter Family.

Check out our podcast with MAW.
