The B-Side at One Lucky Guitar has a few events lined up as we gradually ease out of ’21. 

First up, on Thursday, Nov. 18, they will open up their cozy Lafayette Street location for a screening of The Legendary 1979 No Nukes Concerts, a Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band film featuring ten never-before-released performances from the Madison Square Garden MUSE benefit concerts. 

In the film, Springsteen is 31 years old, energetic, and between his fourth and fifth studio albums, Darkness on the Edge of Town and The River. This is an all-ages event and free to attend. Proceeds support Humane Fort Wayne. 

Next up, on Tuesday, Dec. 7, the B-Side welcomes New York City-based film composer, keyboardist, songwriter, and vocalist Annie Hart. She primarily composes and performs in the band Au Revoir Simone and appeared on screen in the 2017 series of Twin Peaks. In addition, Hart’s song “Hard to Be Still” appeared on episode one of the Netflix series Gypsy, starring Naomi Watts. 

There will be an opening performance by Natvral, a new project of Kip Berman formerly of the The Pains of Being Pure at Heart. This is a rare chance to experience beautiful soundscapes in an intimate atmosphere filled with community ties and a warm, comforting energy. This is an 18-and-over event with tickets ($12 advance, $15 day of) available via Eventbrite. 

Last, on Wednesday, Dec. 29, the venue will host “Kiss-Off 2021,” an evening of Americana music, good times, and a sayonara to 2021. Set to perform will be The Legendary Trainhoppers and Rosalind & The Way

All of these events require a vaccination card or 24-hour negative test for entry.

Eli Young coming to the region

While I have the country folks attention, you will be agog that the Eclectic Room will bring the Eli Young Band to Angola on Saturday, Nov. 6. 

The Texas-born band has gained quite the fanbase since their formation in 2000 with the strength of radio airplay, numerous awards and nominations, and extensive touring.
