As many know, the Brick Street Bar & Grill of Oxford, Ohio is the diamond in the rough of Southwest Ohio. From the “brick juice” covered floors, the tasteless makeouts, and college kids boogeying their academic sorrows away, it’s the perfect watering hole for the students of Miami University. It seems to be the unbeknownst launch pad for many small artists into the spotlight to which they were due.
Let’s frolic through the history of the all-time great performances.
