Busy feet

And the Neon Reverb award for most tricked-out equipment bundle goes to: Woven’s Steve Abagon. Along with his guitar and mini piano, the self-described “pedal jedi” (seriously, dial up the Los Angeles band’s MySpace page) has arrived onstage at the Aruba Showroom Friday night with a giant board packed with effects pedals; we count more than 20, and he’s using pretty much all of them to some strange sound-enducing extent or other. Not to be outdone, lead singer Ory Hodis takes a bow to his guitar throughout the group’s noisy, slow-building, post-rockish set. And of course, drummer Rich Abagon sings harmonies through a headset microphone. Somebody get these guys a music store to run!
