A funny thing about the High Strung: They go spaz among America's public bookshelves.

2255454.t.jpg
As America's only garage-rock band that exclusively plays public libraries, the High Strung book from their Detroit digs today to jam in front of the aisles in Rocky River and Avon Lake as part of the group's third annual National Rock & Roll Library Tour. But the band is better known for its 2004 bequest to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame: It donated a 1988 Chevy with 318,000 miles on the odometer. It also left the keys in the ignition. "Despite its age and demand placed upon it, it carried us to 500 shows across America, without asking us to cancel one," the band wrote in a note. Showtime is at 7 tonight at the Rocky River Public Library, 1600 Hampton Road in Rocky River (440-333-7610) and tomorrow at the Avon Lake Public Library, 32649 Electric Boulevard in Avon Lake (440-933-8128). Admission is free.
