The painted, floating heads of Bob Dylan, Woody Allen, Bill Cosby, and Stevie Wonder stare at you from the wall behind the bar at the Bitter End. They are the ghosts and previous performers of this famous, half-century-old live music/comedy venue. The Bitter End books a collective of alternative rockers, some more rockin' than others. Regardless, there is a YouTube video of Lady Gaga--before she was gaga--howling in front of the brick-wall-backed stage. Perhaps there are more legends to come.
