If you like really good music, you probably already know Adrian Belew. But if somehow you didn’t, I would tell you that not only did he perform with the likes of David Bowie, Frank Zappa, and the Talking Heads, but he distinguished himself mightily while doing so. The affable talent released a new solo album, Pop Sided, recently, and he performs at City Winery on Wednesday, April 10.
