It’s no secret that Seattle is spilling over with gifted musicians, but even given that relatively high bar, Evan Flory-Barnes is a standout. The veteran multi-instrumentalist is probably most visible in his role as bassist for the formidable Stranger Genius Award-winning ensemble Industrial Revelation, but his many appearances on his own and with others have made it clear that he is a major talent no matter whom he’s playing with. Now he gets the chance to take center stage for On Loving the Muse and Family, a show that means to frame his monster skills with a narrative framework incorporating the style of vintage late-night TV variety shows, and featuring such collaborators as the Traumatics, the True Loves, the Seattle Girls Choir, and a full orchestra. On the Boards promises “a series of self-reflexive monologue songs about his relationships, both intimate and familial” and “a celebration of life, philosophy, and psychology through music.” That’s a tall order, but if anyone can deliver on that promise, it’s Flory-Barnes.
