Surprise! Brad Linde plays the drums, too!

“Lil’ bit,” he acknowledges. “Used to play in a Nirvana-style rock band in high school. Now i just play with [pianist Alex Shubert for fun. I love dropping bombs.”

Which brings us to the other big surprise: a trio performance tonight at Twins featuring Linde, Shubert, and alto saxophonist Sarah Hughes. (At least, it’s a surprise in the sense that it doesn’t appear on the club’s online schedule.) The unusual lineup is playing an evening of standards at the club, advertising it with the simple tagline, “Going stir crazy?? Us too. Come hang at Twins this evening to hear some standards.”

Linde says he’ll also have his tenor sax on hand to play duets with Hughes.
