The key to any Boston band having a successful year isn’t just high marks and good times here on the homefront, it’s taking the show out to the masses across the country as musical ambassadors for our fine city and region. That’s exactly what Lynn-bred Americana-rock misfits Tigerman WOAH did this spring, leaving a trail of beard and booze across the Eastern half of the United States en route to — and back from — Austin’s South-By-Southwest.
Between March and June of this year, Tigerman WOAH tore it up in Texas, met Dave Grohl, left Memphis, Nashville, and Fayetteville in ruin, shook up the already sudsy Noshbow Street Festival in Maine, Rumbled hard at the ‘Bear, and slammed down their gear on stage in a gloriously home-team performance at Boston Calling. It was a hell of a run, and it was all captured on video by director Jason Roberts and editor Adam Roberts.
The result is the band’s first-ever music video, set to the sing-along heights of “Old Plank Road,” capturing the tour, the venues, the sweat and the love.
“This is the best introduction to our band at this point in time and sums up what 2014 has been like for us,” Tigerman WOAH writes. “This is what we do.”
Watch the video below, look for the quick (and likely accidental) Vanyaland cameo, and see them do it again this weekend at Cambridge’s New England Americana Festival. Details after the clip.
