Cool places to visit in our little town.
Thanks to Chatham Magazine and its readers for nominating ODDCO for Best Art Gallery and for Best Live Music Venue in Chatham County! It’s mind-blowing to think that we’ve only been open for three months and have already entertained thousands of you from all over North Carolina and beyond … what will the next three months hold?
Vote for your favorites (and you don’t have to be a Chatham county resident to vote ... hint hint) by June 28 at https://chathammagazinenc.com/chathamreadersfavorites2019/.
And while you’re there, vote for our most excellent neighbors, Phoenix Bakery and New Horizons West!
Charlie Hunter, Geoff Clapp and Petr Cancura laying down an incredible session on May 18th. We were honored to have these guys in the house for a very special killer show. Helluva night!
The great work keeps coming to ODDCO. Check out these rad originals in the online store.
Our first 30 days have been filled with great Saturday night music and attentive audiences that really listen up. We’re thrilled and thankful to both the musicians and fans of ODDCO for this memorable beginning.
Work in progress… paint cans and floor cleaning equipment in this odd bendy pano shot of the store interior. 1,000 square feet of future creative fun.
David and Justin are making the bar, register counters and many display units for the shop.
Post war metal houses were the coolest… for a moment in history. We think they’re still amazing.
Light is good! No lack of amperage going into the Lustron upgrade. New mini splits, track lighting, and gallons of turtle wax… that floor is gonna shine up like a 70’s roller disco.
A little progress video of our new custom outdoor sign. ODDCO founders, David Holt and Justin Ware are the designers and robot overlords.
Cleaning the Lustron’s 70-year-old interior wall panels on a November Sunday afternoon. Wash, rinse, wax and buff. It’s really amazing how durable the baked enamel finish is on these walls, they shine up like new. BTW, all of that warm grey is giving me art school flashbacks.
Back in June this lonesome Lustron was picked up and moved down the street to her new location. She was looking pretty rough and forgotten back then but now it’s November and she’s getting plenty of TLC while waiting to be filled with some very interesting odd things.
Vintage 1970’s era roller rink floor was installed this week. If you listen closely you can almost hear the ghost of Tony Orlando and Dawn singing “Knock three times on the ceiling if you want me”. We’re so happy the flooring found a new home in an old Lustron home.
The unfinished area in the back corner is where the checkout counter and small bar will be located. Insulation is coming next!
Night of the living Tiki with Fever Ray. Things are moving along quickly, soon Pittsboro will be in covered in odd art, beer and events. We can’t wait to see you!
This is gonna be crazy, fun and a little unhinged. We’re learning as we go and you’ll be able to follow along with us. You can catch the latest “long form” news here on the blog or keep it short and sweet with Instagram and Facebook. We’ll try to keep them all updated as regularly as possible.
