rock/fusion, 10 p.m.
Straight from the Colorado mountains, Jet Edison mixes up modern rock, old-school funk, ’70s prog, and ’80s dance. The crew — Phil Johnson (keys and vocals), Max Kabat (guitar and vocals), Adam Mason (bass and vocals), and Alex Johnson (drums and vocals) — first started getting their groove on during their freshman year at the University of Colorado. “We like to set a precedent: if you’re not dancing, we must be doing something wrong,” Alex says. “Our music inspires dancing and getting down to the nth degree.” While Jet Edison writes their songs as a band, they do slip in the occasional cover. “We do break the mold with interesting takes on recognizable covers, but we always retain the Jet Edison element in what we are doing,” the drummer says. Their Wednesday night gig marks their first stop in Chucktown. “We are stoked to play in Charleston,” he adds. “We’ve heard great things about the town and are relative newcomers to the South.” —Kailey Miller WEDNESDAY
