What do you get if you cross Everclear, Live and Sixpence None The Richer?



We're showing you the above video stills of Live's Ed Kowalczyk, Everclear's Art Alexakis and Sixpence None The Richer's Leigh Nash because that's probably how you best remember them -- from '90s videos like I Alone, I Will Buy You a New Life and Kiss Me.

If you're anything like us, you miss the '90s, a kinder, gentler era when blogs like this one didn't exist. (If this were 1994, you'd be reading this in a 'zine.) But it's 2010, and the Internet is everywhere, and we're free to tell you about Open Wings Broken Strings, an acoustic tour featuring Alexakis, Kowalczyk and Nash performing and discussing their most popular songs in an intimate setting. It's like an episode of VH1 Storytellers come to life.

Each singer will perform more or less solo, tossing out some of their greatest hits. From Alexakis, you might hear Santa Monica, Wonderful or Heroin Girl. From Kowalczyk, you might get Lightning Crashes, Selling The Drama or The Dolphin's Cry. From Nash, you'll get ... okay, you'll get Kiss Me. Sixpence doesn't have a whole lot of hits of their own. But maybe she'll perform the band's well-known covers of There She Goes and Don't Dream It's Over.

The Open Wings Broken Strings tour will hit the House of Blues in Orlando at 7 p.m. March 13. Tickets are $25-$48. Click here for details.
