Between 1970 and 1973, Rod Stewart released three brilliant records with Faces, and three brilliant solo records, in our opinion, the hottest streak in the history of rock ’n’ roll. We’re celebrating the sweetest spot of the hit parade, with 1971’s breakthrough, Every Picture Tells a Story. Don’t it, though? All ages. BYO. Doors at 8:30PM, music at 9PM. No cover, but we’ll pass the hat for an important nonprofit.
We welcome back our resident squatters, The Legendary Trainhoppers, for a special year-end show, celebrating the 2017 release of LET IT BREATHE. Followed downstairs at BFA by a set by their own resident squatters, The Jury. Live your life alive, Fort Wayne. $7.
A little shy of two decades—20 years!?!—since its summer-’98 release, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill casts a shadow as long as the day it was released. Four sides of vinyl, every side of Ms. Hill. All ages. BYO. Doors at 8:30PM, music at 9PM. No cover, but we’ll pass the hat for an important nonprofit.
Songwritin’, pickin’, stompin’, harp-blowin’, singin’ and travelin’ man Tim Easton returns to The B-Side for a special, mega-intimate show. As always, Tim arrives fresh from Alaska, Australia, Europe and, well, any/everywhere in the world. All ages, 8PM doors, 8:30PM music, GA, etc.
If you really, really, really put the pressure on OLG’s Matt Kelley, and told him he was banished to a desert island with just one record, he’d take one that wasn’t a record at all—but rather, this bootleg recording of a Bruce Springsteen concert. Broadcast live on WMMR, this club performance—as the band was finishing up the tour supporting The Wild, The Innocent & The E Street Shuffle and about to start recording sessions for Born to Run—features some of the first-ever performances of BtR material, wild covers, and ridiculous extended arrangements of songs from Bruce’s first two records. A masterstroke. All ages. BYO. Doors at 8:30PM, music at 9PM. No cover, but we’ll pass the hat for an important nonprofit.
We’re incredibly excited to welcome Nashville by-way-of Del Rio TX singer-songwriter Radney Foster for a special performance in support of his latest release, ‘For You to See the Stars’—a project in two parts: a new record and a collection of short stories. Foster will share stories and songs from throughout his career. 8PM doors, 8:30PM music. 12+. $12 advance; $15 day of show.
Here's the thing: OLG didn't book all of these shows. Sometimes, we share The B-Side with folks who need a unique venue for the envelope-pushing event they've been dreaming up, from a ______ to an __________. (You fill in the blanks—we can't bear the thought of limiting your imagination.) Prone to wild ideas? We'd love to hear from you.
The B-Side at One Lucky Guitar on three colors of tees…all supersoft and ready to wear. Grab yours at the next show!
