We all miss Shaki Presents at BAR. Lilly's might not have the cool little caves to park your ass in, or the candles, or low stage, but the spirit haunts, and the soul is eternal. Woods, MV + EE, and DJ Joey Maddalena? Fuck yes. Manic conjures and Lilly's plays host to a musical séance Friday night.

Woods is an acid/strange/psych folk rock band based out of Brooklyn, New York. Members include Jeremy Earl, Jarvis Taveniere, and G. Lucas Crane. The band is known for strange and upbeat folk rock hymns. Decaying before taking off and dancing before dying. The songs range from vocal-harmony jams to meandering and noisy tinges of noise.

MV&EE is a group of musicians focused around Matt Valentine, sometimes referred to as MV, and his partner Erika Elder. Matt Valentine was in the neo-psychedelic group, The Tower Recordings. While the duo record under many different names, including MV&EE Medicine Show and The Bummer Road, most of the records center around both artists and feature a rotating cast of additional musicians. Their style is self-described as “lunar ragas”, with many of the lyrics dealing with celestial imagery. They combine Indian raga style composition (with increasing authenticity as they become more accomplished with time) with Appalachian folk and post-psychedelic electrical experimentalism. They use Western and Eastern acoustic instruments amplified and augmented with effects such as reverb, delay, and flange. Their compositions occasionally feature vocals, which are off-kilter and rambling, while seeming drugged. Ecstatic Peace
