The Cincinnati-based group is promoting their fourth release, Strawberry.
The band, led by former Ass Pony’s frontman Chuck Cleaver and Lisa Walker, also includes Mark Messerly as bassist/utility man and drummer Joe Klug. Only Cleaver and Walker will be performing at Mandolin.
The promoter says the show is free but Mandolin says the three act evening is $5. Kurt Lindsay and Science! and follow Wussy.
The critics on Wussy:
“Mindful drone-rockers from Ohio are alternately terse and liquidform in all the right places” – NY Times 3/1/12
“Every stick-in-your-head chorus seems like a small triumph” – 4/5 Stars – Rolling Stone Nov 2011
“Wussy have been the best band in America since they released the first of their five superb albums in 2005, only nobody knows it except me and my friends. Nevertheless, they remain dishearteningly obscure…I like or love — no, make that love or really like — just about every one of the 46 songs on those five albums. We’re talking Beatles-Stones consistency here.” – Robert Christgau, Barnes & Noble Review 3/16/12
“Wussy’s albums drag country and western through fields of noisy drone. If Sonic Youth performed roots rock, they might sound like Wussy, but their NYC attitude would never match Cleaver and Walker’s knock-down, drag-out lyrics about loss and love, and garbage trucks on parade.” – KEXP Seattle 4/03/12
