Chuck Mosley, the former frontman of Faith No More, Cement, and even Bad Brains for a time, played a free intimate acoustic show at Young Ones Records in Kutztown on Tuesday, July 12 as part of a small cross-country tour called “Reintroduce Yourself: An Evening with Chuck Mosley.”

Joined by Doug Esper on percussion, the stripped-down solo performance featured songs from his entire career and was recorded for a potential limited release vinyl. Mosley recently signed a record deal with Megadeth bassist Dave Ellefson’s EMP Label Group to release “Demos for Sale,” a collection of demos and alternate mixes from Mosley’s 2009 debut solo album “Will Rap Over Hard Rock for Food” that is closer to his original vision for the record: “live, dirty and punk rock… warts and all.”

Mosley’s labelmates Dead By Wednesday opened that night with an acoustic set of their own; vocalist Rob Roy and drummer/guitarist/singer Christian “Opus” Lawrence were joined by guitarist Marc Rizzo of Soulfly for lighter versions of their heavy metal tunes.
