Doors 7pm ~ MUSIC 8PM
WOODROW is an indie pop group from Madison, WI. Connor Falcon Brennan has been writing original music his whole life but had been pursuing a PhD in Medical Physics until 2016. His love for music swayed him toleave the PhD program at University of Wisconsin, and pursue music full-time. That is when Connor assembled three other local Madison musicians to form the band WOODROW. Marc Brousseau (guitar) is a high-school math teacher, a self taught guitar player, and has previously recorded with a handful of bands from the Rhode Island music scene, where he is originally from. Connor Peterson (drummer) was recruited directly from two expert drumlines: The Tundra Line, the official drumline of the Green Bay Packers, and The University of Wisconsin Drumline. Nate Klopotic (bass) is multi-instumentalist, able to play the guitar, piano, sax, mandolin, and ukelele; his main instruments now are playing the flugelhorn for the University of Wisconsin Marching Band, and the bass for Woodrow.
During Woodrow's first six months, the band released their debut EP, Jose, which is described as "palpable creative energy . . . [and] a total disregard for convention" by Emmie Music Magazine. After recording the EP, the band recruited a fifth member, Kevin Gale, to round out the Indie Pop Sound. Woodrow is currently playing gigs around WI, and recording their second EP, with plans to record their first full album in early 2018.
