Saturday Night in the Club w/ MICHAEL McDERMOTT 

$25 General Admission / Reserved Tables Available 

McDermott knows a thing or two about heartbreak and arrested development. Back in

the early ‘90s, McDermott was the new toast of the major label recording industry with
his debut album, 620 W. Surf. But in typical chew-them-up and spit-them-out style,
McDermott had seemingly been tossed in the never-been bin by the end of that decade.

He persevered, though, and built a career fortified by more than a dozen studio albums
and critical acclaim from Rolling Stone, The New York Times, CNN, and The
Washington Post, to name a few. Even Stephen King, the master of the best-selling
horror novel genre, called McDermott “possibly the greatest undiscovered rock and roll
talent of the last 20 years.”

But this heartland rocker continues to make music on his own terms. He is the ultimate
survivor of the potentially soul-crushing world of money-hungry executives and starving
singer-songwriters yearning for stardom. That’s exactly why St. Paul’s Boulevard is as
personal as it is universal. McDermott lived those songs, that place, and those shattered
hopes.

“Those days are now just a wash of dreams of characters, of drunken and drug-fueled
nights wandering all over town looking for an angry fix driven by love, lust, longing, or
connection,” he says. “I lost a lot of people on St. Paul's Boulevard. Many never made it
out, but I'm lucky to have. It's a place that brings out our best and our worst in equal
measure. It's the landscape where the doggedness of the spirit rises above the grim
realities that surround us.”
