Cullen “Fellowman” Wade (right) didn’t set out to create an album about loss during such a dark time in history. And despite its title, Death of an Author, which has been two years in the making, is rooted in creativity, catharsis, and enlightenment rather than morbidity. With a slew of covers and originals dedicated to lost musical heroes, the project underlines Wade’s vast knowledge of his subjects, with tributes to legends from Sean Price, Jimi Hendrix, and Prince to John Prine, Joe Strummer, and Grant Hart of Hüsker Dü. The rapper and producer implores listeners to allow an artist’s work to have a deeper impact than the individual personality or cult of celebrity. Wade will perform the album in a livestream, with special guests Harli Saxon, Waterloo from Beetnix, Remy St. Clair, Eric Cope, DJ Double U, and DJ Bovay.

Saturday 12/26. 9pm. Simulcast on WTJU 91.1 FM and at facebook.com/TheBridgePAI.
