Any stories about The Speakeasy? When did it close?


Kafka, sorry I didn't respond sooner. Been traveling. As far as the Speakeasy goes, it stayed open from the mid-late 60's (not sure exactly) until the early 70's when some hippie bought it and turned it into a restaurant called "'Mother Earth". That didn't last long. It eventually became a car dealership (I want to say Volvo) for a while and was finally torn down probably in the early 90's or shortly before the big condos started going up.

Some of the bands we saw there included :

Johnny Winter
MC5 (badass !)
Brownsville Station ( original artist for Smokin in the Boys' Room)

as well as Potliquor, War Babies, Iscoseles Popsicle, and other local favorites.

I used to go see Thoughts of Mary pretty regularly.

Girl Scout Heroin was also good.

The Circuit Breakers were a lot of fun back in the 80's. A couple of years ago I stumbled into the reincarnated Circuit Breakers; I think Bruce Lamb is all that is left from the original band but I enjoyed the new incarnation.

Not Baton Rouge bands but A-Train and Asleep at the Wheel played Baton Rouge pretty regularly and were favorites.

Kafka - You ever heard of a lead guitarist who played with Isosceles Popsicle named Richard "Dickie" Harris? He can shred a guitar.

Not familiar with him

But tonight I learned there were at least two versions of the Basement Wall's "Never Existed":

First version

A more overtly psych version

I prefer the original, but the remake is good too
