Kiss the Bottle

Back home in San Francisco, Paul Hlebcar fronts the seven-piece DeSotos -- rockers who have shared stages with everyone from Bo Diddley to Eddie Money. But on the road, the veteran singer-songwriter plays solo. For more than 20 years, he’s traveled across the country with an acoustic guitar and harmonica for unplugged gigs. He comes to the Barking Spider tonight, where he’ll play songs from his latest CD, Stand Alone. On weepers like “Christine,” he drowns his sorrow in booze: “Ole Jim Bean, he causes strife,” he sings. “But he’s been my friend for life/Now it’s sad to say, he’s now my enemy.”
Wed., Jan. 17, 10 p.m.
