Saskatoon's favourite band of twang-o-leers The Deep Dark Woods are once again on the road, touring the eastern parts of the US of A in support of their critically acclaimed (and oft-played) album The Place I Left Behind. They've been recording their performances and have started posting songs on their on their website as free downloads.

On January 19th, The DDW rolled into Alexandria, Virginia for a show at a venue called The Birchmere. Last week, the band made eight songs from the performance available. Tracks include stand-out tracks from their last three albums as well as a cover of early blues standard "Trouble In Mind."

Second in the live series is a recording from a show at Union Transfer in Philadelphia, PA on January 25th, featuring a cover of The Grateful Dead's adaptation of the old Scottish folk tune "Peggy-O."

The boys have a few more US dates before returning home to prepare for their first trip across the pond, playing a smattering of dates across the UK and one in The Netherlands. See below for the band's schedule over the next month:
