Known as one of the most industrious bands in their league, Sherwood will bring its sharp lyrics and indie charm to UU hour today.

Having formed in 2002 while students at Cal Poly, Sherwood offers songs that are influenced by The Beach Boys and Jimmy Eat World, among others.

“It’s easy to get down when you’re on a hectic tour playing to sparse crowds,” guitarist Dan Kooch said on the band’s Web site. “A few things always seem to keep us going, like a great show, a cool conversation with a fan or moments that remind us how lucky we are to do this kind of thing.”

The band also performed on the 2004 Vans Warped Tour.

Sherwood’s current album, “Sing, But Keep Going,” was released in May.

“No matter which song you think will turn out great, you can never tell until the whole thing is done. Since it’s our first album, we really tried to put our best foot forward,” drummer Joe Greenetz said on the band’s Web site.

Sherwood will play during UU hour in the UU Plaza from 11 a.m. to noon.
