Video: Wussy Live on KEXP (Full Performance / June 2014) by Wussy News

Wussy performed live at Seattle’s KEXP studios on June 20, 2014, receiving the first ever Midday Show encore! The video from that performance is available above. The band even ran into King Buzzo in the radio station parking lot!

Songs: Teenage Wasteland, Bug, Rainbows & Butterflies, Beautiful, Pizza King
Host: Cheryl Waters / Audio Engineer: Kevin Suggs / Cameras: Jim Beckmann, Shelly Corbett & Scott Holpainen / Editor: Jim Beckmann

From KEXP:

“We’re glad to see more and more listeners and critics take notice of the the Cincinnati band’s dynamic 90s-steeped pop-rock sound. And they’re as much fun to talk to as hear them perform, so it was no surprise that Cheryl would ask them to keep playing after their fourth song for the first ever encore on the Midday Show!”
