OLS welcomes Eric Bettencourt, Will Mallett, and Pat Byrne for an evening of songwriters in the round.

Eric Bettencourt moved to from Portland to Austin Texas in 2012 to pursue his passion for songwriting. Since then he has released one EP (Weightless Embrace Vol.2) and two Full-length albums (An Underwater Dream & Bric-a-Brac) The former was released a little over a year ago.

Will Mallett is a prolific and inventive songwriter in his own right. He is mostly known for co-fronting the regionally famous Mallett Brothers Band with his brother Luke. TMBB released their latest EP, “Gold Light” in the summer of 2021.

Pat Byrne is an Irish singer songwriter. In 2012 he was crowned the winner of the The Voice of Ireland. In late 2017, Byrne emigrated to Austin, Texas. Immersed in the Texas music scene, Byrne released the LP’s Rituals (2018) and Into the Light (2021). Pat has been selected as an Official Performer for the 2022 SXSW festival.

Covid-19 Protocols:

We are very excited to be hosting live music shows again in our listening room. OLS is committed to providing a safe environment for all who work, listen, or perform live music in our venue. Because our venue is so small, we will require all staff, volunteers, performers, and patrons to show proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 when they attend OLS events AND to wear masks indoors unless they are actively drinking, eating, or performing.

Proof of vaccine must come directly from the health care provider that performed the vaccination and can be a photo or physical copy of the vaccination card or record with an accompanying photo ID. Full vaccination means that the date of the performance you are attending is:

* at least 14 days after your second dose of an FDA or WHO authorized two dose COVID-19 vaccine, or

* at least 14 days after your single dose of an FDA or WHO authorized single dose COVID vaccine.

We hope we can ease these restrictions once further progress has been made reducing transmission of the virus. Until then we greatly appreciate your patience and cooperation.

One Longfellow Square does not assume liability; the ticket holder will assume all risks involved. By purchasing a ticket to this event you agree to assume full liability for any risks incurred before, during and after the event and agree to the current Terms of Use.
