MY VENUE HAS A FIRST NAME, IT'S O-S-C-A-R: - although not for much longer, as the Oscar Meyer theatre in Madison is closing down next week. The venue opened at the end of February 1980 with a gig featuring Muddy Waters and Betty Carter. The venue is going out with a tribute to the local stars who play, but popping up alongside the Wisconsin legends will be Shirley Manson - but doing something out of the ordinary: two songs from the "American Songbook." We'd hope someone in the Dairy State has plans to bootleg.
