For this tour, Busse Woods — which famously takes its title from the Illinois forest preserve system Acid King frontwoman Lori S. frequented as a teenager in the ’70s — will be played live in a new light… and order. Deep cut “Carve the 5” has finally made its live debut, and Acid King are playing the six-song LP in reverse, apparently.
“This album defines the band in many ways,” Lori S. says. “It’s the one we get asked about the most… For the old fans that bought this record 20 years ago, I hope they’re excited to hear the songs all played for the first time like this. By the same token, I hope that a lot of new fans who haven’t heard it also have a special experience. We’re going out of our way to make it special for everyone. It’s what Acid King was always meant to be.”
