If “all the world’s a stage,” as Shakespeare wrote, then Jeffrey James O’Loughlin’s part in the play reads like a lost Coen Brothers manuscript. On the verge of finding a music career in the early 1980s, the young guitarist saw an early version of the Replacements at a bar in Minneapolis. So inspired by the raw energy provided by the ’Mats, he abandoned the music biz altogether, joined the Navy, and traveled the world, port-by-port. In 1999, he returned to Minnesota with a renewed Westerberg-like passion for songwriting and Lakewalk busking. His newest album, Black Butterfly, was released in February.
