Wussy/The Ready Stance/Lawton Brothers 

When: Sat., Nov. 16, 9 p.m. 2013
Price: $10
Wussy, the shoegazers of alt-country, draw in their listeners with beautiful harmonies, folky guitar strumming and close harmony vocals. Drones permeate the backgrounds of their songs creating a warm blanket of sound around an often up-tempo country-tinged rock song. In this way, they sound like two separate yet unified bands performing at the same time. As one of the more consistent bands around, Wussy's an old standby (though far from the stagnant connotations often associated with the title). Instead of expending effort on how to weird out their listeners, they spend that energy with a laser-beam-like focus on writing enjoyable, solid and — frankly — great songs. The Cincinnati five-piece's latest record, Buckeye, masterfully reworks material from their five previous albums, acting like a punched-up Best-of. With songs that express melancholy by means of catchy hooks, the show promises to be both heartwarming and heartwrenching. (Stoops)
