Cass McCombs Band Plays Music Hall of Williamsburg

July 20th, 2011

Singer-songwriter Cass McCombs’ calling card is his distinctive voice, both lyrically and aurally. Prior to actually releasing any music, his dark, funny stories earned him a slot touring with Palace (a Will Oldham—of Bonnie Prince Billy fame—band) and the Oxes, which eventually led to McCombs putting out his debut EP, Not the Way, in 2002. Two LPs followed before he found himself on the road with Modest Mouse. His fourth full-length album, the well-received Wits End, came out this year, and Cass McCombs Band (above, playing “Prima Donna”at this year’s SXSW) is currently on tour in support of it. See them tomorrow night at Music Hall of Williamsburg.
