Adam Saake

Sacramento’s New Humans need a new vocalist. Drummers need not apply, as they already have the talented Adam Saake. This week’s Playlist features songs that have proven influential to Saake. “I made an eclectic mix of drummers/drum programmers that really float my drum-set boat,” he explained. The New Humans have a show booked at the Blue Lamp on May 10. Hopefully, they’ll have a singer!
