Is a freebie... theDave Wade Trio
playing at Trax (the former Sail Inn) this evening. Along with guitarist extraordinaire Charles Bond and drummer J.B., Wade takes every style he can think of and jumbles them all together, be it jazz, reggae, blues, Middle Eastern music, or straight up rock. When it's done live, it comes together beautifully. Wade's got a new record coming out soon, which you'll see some analysis of in an upcoming Revolver column. Until then, go scope out the show tonight and take a listen to these two songs from the record.
