This Friday, April 10, Wussy's Chuck Cleaver and Lisa Walker are playing a concert on Facebook Live as a duo.
According to the Rainbows & Butterflies: Wussy Duo Live Stream event page, "Chuck and Lisa’s households are isolating as a family unit, so even though we had to forgo touring for a while, we’re still able to play some songs for you! We’re going to attempt our first live-streamed show from home on Friday at 7 p.m. Eastern via the band’s Facebook page."
Wussy — as a full Indie Rock five-piece — kicked off a tour in early March at the Woodward Theater. It would have been one of their longest jaunts in several years. The band released its most recent album, the critically-acclaimed What Heaven Is Like, in 2018
The plan was to return to the road in full force, with bassist Mark Messerly and drummer Joe Klug back in the saddle for shows in Cleveland, Boston, Washington D.C., Brooklyn, Baltimore and Albany, New York. Wussy had also been slated to play Homecoming, the big outdoor music festival at Smale Riverfront Park hosted by The National.
Obviously, things have since changed because of the COVID-19 pandemic. So for now, we'll happily enjoy the sounds of Rainbows & Butterflies streaming into our living rooms.
