The Greatest Show(alter) On Earth: Strand Of Oaks Shares Some Brotherly Love

Strand Of Oaks finished the first leg of its tour supporting the excellent new Eraserland (Dead Oceans) with a hometown performance at Philly’s Union Transfer. Tim Showalter and Co. played eight of the new LP’s 10 tracks as well as fan faves such as “Shut In,” “JM” and “Goshen ’97” over the course of their 90-minute set. NYC trio Wild Pink—whose stellar sophomore album Yolk In The Fur came out last year via Tiny Engines—opened the show. MAGNET photographer Chris Sikich was feeling the bearded brotherly love.
