Got to the open mic night a little late, and I missed Arlington Public TV filming some of the early acoustic sets for a local segment. Despite this I got to see a few talented regulars, including the famous Eric Summers. You know someone is a serious performer when they bring six guitars and their own custom mic on stage with them.
Eric's extreme talent with the guitar was evident even if the P.A. system wasn't co-operating. You can't go wrong with a guitarist who tapes individual picks to each finger of their right hand.
