Two weeks ago, The Cavern began hosting a new weekly Wednesday night series that showcases visual artists and DJs alongside live music performers.
Called Detour, tonight's take on the event features Black Tie Dynasty performing an acoustic set, local photographer Sally Glass showcasing her works on the venue's walls and DJ Schwa spinning records during the dead sound spots. (Glass will also put her musician hat on and return two weeks from now to perform as Fancy Fist on Detour's July 9 date.)
Oh, and by the way: The series is free to attend.
