In case you missed it, local performance artist Billy Weathers, aka B. Well, dropped his latest album, “Money Well Made,” last Friday. The record is the musician’s first release since 2022, and it explores themes of perseverance, community and personal growth.

To celebrate, the artist is hosting an album release party this Friday at Wooly’s, where he plans to convert the stage into a 360-degree immersive experience to create an arena-stage vibe. “I use Wooly’s as a blank canvas anytime I get a chance to perform there,” he said. “This time, it’s going to be an all-encompassing experience, something truly special.”

Weathers is also teaming up with other local businesses, including the stationery shop Moglea and floral company Wildflower, and he is collaborating with fellow Des Moines musicians Annie Kemble and Teller Bank$. “The access to talent in Des Moines is unparalleled,” he said. “There’s a lot of talented people here, so whenever I have a platform, I feel like it’s my responsibility to share that with other artists.”

The party gives him an excuse to celebrate his hometown as much as his new album, and he encourages others to do the same. “Cities become cool because of support for the people that are in your city doing cool things,” he said. “Or you just continue to do cool things yourself.”
