Smart bets: Love Right

Many local musicians play in more than one band (with a number of talented artists lending their skills to lots of projects across a number of genres). Singer-songwriter and guitarist Silas Durocher not only appears in various groups but has worked it out so that his two main projects — funk-rockers The Get Right Band and folk-rockers Lovestruck Suckers — can share a stage. Twice. The shows include a set by Lovestruck Suckers (complete with strings section), one by The Get Right band and then a third set with both bands merged into Love Right (that’s violin, viola, cello, guitar, bass, percussion and vocals in one happy extended family). Catch the musical metamorphosis at Isis Restaurant & Music Hall on Thursday, Aug. 20, at 8:30 p.m. $8/$10, isisasheville.com. And at 185 King Street in Brevard on Friday, Aug. 21, at 8:30 p.m. $12.18. http://avl.mx/1dm. Photo courtesy of The Get Right Band
