True to form, dirty shirt rock n’ roll band One Way Out, originally from Washington D.C., do not disappoint with their latest release, “Final Failure,” from their forthcoming junior album Jimmy T’s Place, named after the iconic Capitol Hill restaurant.
Having recently relocated to New York City, One Way Out is poised to launch Jimmy T’s Place with NYC rock bands Citrus Maxima, Sauce City, and SLMBR at Berlin Under A on October 6, 2023.
About the album, guitarist Jake Schaefer reveals, “[One Way Out] melds frenetic psychedelic jams and DIY, blown out production with the hypnotic rhythms of Can, and the intensity of grunge bands like Soundgarden and Alice In Chains. Being the band’s first self produced effort, they leave songs sounding raw and exploding with energy, injecting their live spirit into the record. Additionally, the band took the recording process with them all over the world, beginning with live tracking in Piriapolis, Uruguay, and taking the files with them to Maryland, New York City, Sperryville, VA, and finally to the album’s namesake, taking room audio from Jimmy T’s Place on Capitol Hill.”
“Final Failure” makes its debut along with B-side “You Can’t Do Everything For Jim Morrison” and together they hint at the forthcoming album’s overall grit and vigor. One Way Out’s dynamic on-stage liveliness is fully realized and conveyed within the recordings, mastered by Mike Monseur of Bias Studios.
“Final Failure” is available now on major streaming platforms like YouTube, Spotify, and Apple Music.

Aria Velz is a director, TikToker, and Lesbian Media Enthusiast based in the D.C. area. On November 2nd, she sat down with me to talk about it all, from her latest production at Olney Theatre Center to the things that lead to her little corner on TikTok.
On October 29th, Olney Theatre Center wrapped its run of Prince Gomolvilas’ ‘The Brothers Paranormal.’ The disconcerting, borderline terrifying production was co-directed by Olney’s Senior Associate Artistic Director, Hallie Gordon, and Velz herself. The show was one of the spookiest times I have had in a theatre in quite some time. It was evident that the show was a well researched labor of love.
