Fronted by former Ass Pony Chuck Cleaver and the previously unaffiliated and brilliant Lisa Walker, Cincinnati’s Wussy is a rock band that’ll remind you on the deepest level why you love rock bands. The central conceit: Submerging pristine, literate songwriting in the rumble and roar of a full band. The secret weapon: A chemistry so rare, powerful, and under-recognized it inspired Robert Christgau—America’s tersest rock critic—to publish a 2,000-word love letter to “the best band in America.” Go see Wussy.
