Flying Solo

Part MTV Unplugged and part VH1 Divas (which we suppose would add up to be an installment of VH1 Storytellers), Saturday night's Flying Solo show at The Cavern features four local frontmen strippin' it down and kickin' it acoustic, though they'll have to get by without a little help from their friends. Chemistry Set's Steven Duncan, Auto Escape's Donnie DeBoer, Hendrick's Josh Hendrick and Cory Watson of Black Tie Dynasty will grace the stage to play intimate selections from their respective bands' catalogs and, most likely, a song or two that they don't play with their bands because it's about how they made out with the bass player's sister. While their music could be lazily described as some-such-genre followed by the word "rock" (pop rock, folk rock, indie rock, garage rock, etc.), there's enough variance to keep things interesting. We're just hoping somebody tries to cover Eric Carmen's "All By Myself."
