Badi Assad's new record is called 'Hatched.'

ARTIST: Badi Assad
GIG: Wednesday night at The Iridium

When Badi Assad visited Soundcheck early last year, she played songs that were inspired by the birth of her new daughter. Fast forward a couple years, and the Brazilian guitar master is pulling ideas from EVERYWHERE; her new record is a re-imagining of hits from the pop, indie rock and even EDM world: check out her cover of the song “Stranger” by the huge DJ Skrillex. Yes it’s a dance music thumper, but do us a favor and leave your glow sticks at home if you go to see Badi Assad at Iridium Jazz Club tonight.
