You gotta give it to Audie Pardon, he’s really turned around the once-Club Fred. Under its previous owner, the beloved Tower District music club was losing its luster.
Audie bought the place a couple years back, reinforced the dedication to live music and eventually changed the name to Audie’s Olympic, a nod to the club’s past as The Olympic Tavern.
Anyhow, the last few months have been stellar over there, with lots of good touring shows. August is particularly packed.
Here’s a list, courtesy of Audie himself, of what’s coming up:
