Every town is home to a few characters known for their dealings with the dark side. It’s rare that they answer to God-given Christian names like Joseph or Michael; rather, it’s descriptive monikers like Fat Joe or Spider Mike that elicit a response. Sweet, docile names like Panda and Angel might not seem to fit the bill for folks like this, but Northwest transplant Josh Wackerly will tell you different. While living in Mansfield, Ohio, he was so inspired by Panda, a local drug slinger, and his girlfriend, Angel, that they became his muse as he wrote songs that took shape from their story. He named his project after the two. And the band’s self-titled Jade Tree debut EP is a window into their painful, but somehow beautiful addicted world. Touchdown Eagle’s Carrie Murphy executes lyrics like “Before the pills/I loved you more” with a throat-tightening angst, woven among electronic samples and warm, folk-style guitar riffs. Tonight they play with Murphy’s sister, the latest addition to the band, behind the kit.
