Tickets are now on sale for “An Open Book: An Evening with Justin Furstenfeld of Blue October” on Saturday, Sept. 30, at the downtown Jefferson Theatre. This rare and intimate show features Furstenfeld, vocalist, songwriter and guitarist for the rock band Blue October, playing an acoustic set of songs never before heard, as well as stripped down and softer versions of Blue October fan favorites. The evening will also consist of spoken word and a Q&A session, allowing the audience to interact with him.

“I always look forward to the spoken word/solo shows,” said Furstenfeld. “The fact that I’m sitting just a few feet away from the audience, that there are no rules as to what they ask me, or that I don’t have boundaries on my answers, is what is exciting to me. I’m hoping that the evening will give everyone a chance to dig deep, connect and explore the dark corners of why honesty, no matter how brutal, remains one of the most beautiful aspects of being human. Through poetry, music and conversation, we heal. Why not do it together?”

From Houston, Blue October has had 10 Top 40 singles over their past seven studio albums including “Hate Me,” “Into the Ocean,” both of which sold more than 1 million copies, as well as “Home” “Calling You,” “Dirt Room,” “Say It,” “Bleed Out” and “Fear”


Tickets are $20-$40 and can be purchased online at or at the Beaumont Civic Center box office.
