Nitehawk’s October Country Brunchin’ is John Boorman’s explosive Deliverance featuring a live pre-show serenade by The Woes.

The western genre meets the horror genre in this intense portrayal of an outdoor buddy weekend gone severely wrong. When four Atlanta city slickers decide to spend the weekend on Northern Georgia’s Cahulawassee River, they know that the mode of thinking is different in the country but don’t realize the extent of that difference until it’s too late. Encountering generations of inbreeding with a group of hillbilly moonshiners, they face difficult life-and-death decisions that could mean the difference of going home or never getting out alive.

The Woes are a group of madmen and wild women based out of New York City. Formed in 2002 by frontman Osei Essed and his long-time collaborator Cicero Jones, their sound is a mix of blues, country, and folk.
