Back in the Day: A Look at the Brazen Husky from the Late 70's

Exterior Shot of The Brazen Husky at the old location near 31st and Spenard, 1977. February, about minus 11, with windchill. The doorman in this photo looks like Otto B. an Albanian transplant by way of Bethel. They had to let Otto go soon after he was hired because of a sudden and disastrous drop in revenue shortly after he was brought on. They thought he was stealing, but found out the problem was he had such a high standard he wouldn't let anyone in the club. When Otto wasn't on the door, me, my brother, Dave L. and a few other music fiends from our High School would try to sneak in. We saw Roy Buchanon, Rory Gallagher, The Holy Modal Rounders and Van Morrison on the stage there. All in one night. We also saw a three-headed bull moose with forked lightning for antlers on the way home, so it's possible that we were a bit addled by the bar smoke, which was so thick you couldn't cut it with a circular saw.
