HiddenTrack #52 DIRECT HIT! (Nick Woods)


This week I am joined by Nick Woods of the hard hitting punk band DIRECT HIT!. Nick brings his unique perspective to the thought of "what if it all went away?" Nick's story telling of his first musical memory is told in technicolor for all to hear AND see. Nick's ability to bring his visions to life can be summed up with the pivotal  DIRECT HIT! Album "Crown Of Nothing". Crown Of Nothing is a beautiful concept album brought to life with a comic series. Our understanding of each other through the connection of music was not only stimulating, but spooky. DIRECT HIT! has provided me with many hours of enjoyment, so please take at least one out of your day and join us both on a captivating ride through the cosmos. Take your "Drama Queen" for a ride, remove their "Crown Of Nothing" and "Open Your Mind" because "The World Is Ending (Sorta)."Check Out DIRECT HIT!'s latest single - "Hollow Comfort"

Nick’s band, “Direct Hit” is signed to Fat Wreck Chords and is out touring all the time. But Nick also does a lot while not touring.

We talked between tours and I had some questions!  Learning to code, hotel bed bugs and the aftermath, being a business owner, punk rock and the music business always sneaks in there. Enjoy this one.

8 – Nick Woods (Direct Hit!, The Box Social)

My First Band Podcast

Before Nick Woods was the singer, guitarist and founding member of Direct Hit! and the co-owner of X-Ray Arcade, the punk rock front man and all-ages venue owner/operator was a suburban kid with an insatiable passion for music. The journey that started with taking violin lessons from his mother as a child led to learning guitar in adolescence, starting bands as a teen and touring the country to play music during his college breaks. Woods recently welcomed My First Band host Tyler Maas to X-Ray Arcade to talk about the new business, the influence his guitar teacher had on him, playing in a nu metal cover band, discovering punk rock, learning how to book cross-country tours, his decision to eventually take the lead in a group and how Direct Hit! went from being a jokey side project to a pop-punk sensation on the Fat Wreck Chords roster. My First Band is sponsored by Boulevard Brewing and is edited by Jared Blohm. You can listen to My First Band on iTunes, Stitcher, Spotify and wherever else you get podcasts. Music used in this show comes courtesy of Devils Teeth (“The Junction Street Eight Tigers”) and The Box Social ("Blown To Bits").
