Led by volatile singer-guitarist Justin Furstenfeld, the alt-rock act Blue October has experienced extreme ups and downs since forming just over 20 years ago.

Furstenfeld chronicles that rollercoaster ride in Crazy Making — The Words and Lyrics of Justin Furstenfeld, a collection of annotated lyrics for the songs in the band's discography. A couple of years ago, he toured in support of the book and played acoustic shows.

Recently, he's turned his attention back to Blue October, which just issued its eighth studio album, Home. The band will perform a special acoustic set at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 17, at Aloft Cleveland Downtown on the East Bank of the Flats. Admission is free.
