Led by acclaimed electric guitarist and vocalist Warren Haynes, Southern rock jam band Gov’t Mule heads to Charleston this month in support of a new album titled By A Thread. The big show is set for Tues. Jan. 26 at the Music Farm. Local rock station The Bridge at 105.5 recently announced a special pre-show "lounge" gig at Mt. Pleasant recording studio Charleston Sound on Mon. Jan. 25.

The Mule will perform live from 7-9 p.m. in Charleston Sound’s main recording room in front of a studio audience of 20 listeners and guests. The Bridge’s Operations Manager Mike Allen and Music Director Joel Frank will conduct interview segments with members of Gov’t Mule between songs with the band playing live for a studio audience of 20 listeners and guests (the station starts inviting 20 listeners through on-air and registration contests this month). Home Team BBQ will be on hand, too. There will be 15 minutes for an open audience Q&A with a station on-air personality acting as moderator.

The entire segment will be recorded and played back on Tues. Jan. 26. The Bridge has been spinning tunes from the new Mule album, including the new singles "Frozen Fear" and "Broke Down on The Brazo’s."
