Billy Wassung of Big Metal Rooster and Billy the Squirrel is stepping out of his jam-band shoes to release a solo album. Favoring soulful alt-folk tunes with mellow chord changes, the album was recorded at Mixtape Soundlabs with help from friends and collaborators Dash Williamson, Matt Miner, Nate Holt and Scott Welch. More concise and melodic than the loosey-goosey numbers his other bands are known for, "Is Me" marks an intentioned shift in Wassung's songwriting. He'll perform the album live with a full band tonight along with other new tunes and cover songs. Sarah Blacker sets the stage, Wassung performs at 11:00pm and Cosmopolitics closes out the evening.
