Joseph King

When: Thu., May 28, 9 p.m. 2015

After fronting Austin-based, alt-rock groups Canvas and Deadbeat Darling, Brooklynite Joseph King is going solo. On King’s latest release, Wanderlusting, he enlisted the help of his fans through a Kickstarter fundraiser, raising $15,000 in the short time frame of two weeks. Judging by the finished product, every penny was well-spent. “Don’t be so Alarmist,” the first single from the album, is a feel-good track with surf-and-sandal attitude. Like much of the album, it’s packaged in a pop wrapper, but still contains the rock ‘n’ roll edge of his former work.
