Two nights of record-release shows this weekend will feature the songs of Izzy Cox, a young Austin indie musician who died a year ago this week of pancreatic cancer. (The local community had rallied in support with benefit shows in 2016 after her condition was diagnosed.)

“Songs of Life and Death, Vol. 1” is a new tribute album featuring two dozen local acts playing songs Cox wrote. Many of the contributing artists will gather for release shows Friday at Nomad Bar and Saturday at Hole in the Wall, with proceeds going to the Health Alliance for Austin Musicians. Here are the full lineups:

9 p.m Friday, March 23, at Nomad:
That Damned Band
Sabbath Crow

Moose’s Last Stand
Bruce Salmon & Katy Rose Cox

8 p.m. Saturday, March 24, at Hole in the Wall:

More details on the record will be posted at izzycoxrocks.com, a recently launched website. A second volume is tentatively set for release in March 2019.
