This week’s adventure was a mix of something old and something new. I had never been to the Thursday night open stage at O’Brien’s, hosted by Adam Shaw, although lots of friends have visited. O’Brien’s is the current incarnation (a few management baton passes later) of The Old Copper Kettle, the first public jam I ever attended. Not having been in the building since our Tuesday night jam there ended I was pleasantly surprised by what I found. Slightly nostalgic about the many hours spent there playing music with friends I found that O’Brien’s retained some of the warmth and relaxed ambiance that I remember.

All kinds of music welcome (originals, covers, rock out or be mellow) – just let Adam know you want to play when you arrive.
