Tonight @ the Rave - 8 p.m.
At the risk of perpetuating a silly stereotype, we’ll caution that not all musicians from Australia play the didgeridoo, but Australian Xavier Rudd happens to. Then again, this roots rock musician plays all sorts of instruments: slide guitar, harmonica, banjo, bass, the djembe hand drum, etc. Displaying more than a little Paul Simon influence (mostly in his vocals and in his affinity for world music), one-man Rudd has become a favorite in jam circles, thanks largely to his flashy live shows, which feature plenty of instrument hopping. Rudd headlines an 8 p.m. show at the Rave tonight with opener Griffin House.
