Here’s a show that’ll probably leave any music nerd spellbound. For $0, you can can head to a Pinellas brewery with some of the best beers in Florida and see Jaco-and-Ron Carter-adoring 27-year-old bassist Brad Miller (Blaque Dynamite) play in a trio that includes former Mars Volta drummer Thomas Pridgen (now with Trash Talk and his own band, The Memorials) plus Grammy-nominated saxophonist and composer Patrick Bartley, Jr. who’s played alongside Jonathan Batiste, Wynton Marsalis and others. It’s futile to try and say what the experimental set might sound like, but expect hints of hip-hop, rock and jazz.

Sunday, Aug. 1, 8 p.m. Free. Dunedin Brewery, 937 Douglas Ave., Dunedin.
