Neil young recorded his new cover album in a phone booth. Sort of. Okay, not really, but it was in something called a Voice-O-Graph, and it’s about the size of a phone booth.
On Record Store Day, April 19th, Jack White’s label, Third Man Records released “A Letter Home” on vinyl, the deluxe set of which will be available on May 27th. It’s really an amazing, raw, old-timey sound that only someone like Neil can pull off to such an amazing effect. On the album, he covers Gordon Lightfoot, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Don Everly and more.
Check out the video above to hear Neil’s cover of Bert Jansch’s “Needle of Death” and to see just what kind of space he was working with in the Voice-O-Graph.

As an added bonus, Lance from Lance’s Brewery Tour will be visiting, and $1 from every pint we sell during the show will go to his Lance’s Room charity which will help others with autism achieve their dreams, attend college, receive vocational training and more. Yeah!
Come on out and feel the soul, the sun and the good vibes!

Ladies and Gents, it’s been sunny in Burlington for the last few days - a welcome break from the floods - and this has us in the mood for some sunny summer day music. Drink it down and crank it up on into the weekend.
$3, which goes directly to our beneficiary, Big Heavy World, gets you in. After that, drink, dance and mow down some Skinny Pancake crepes all afternoon long. If you need a break, head on inside for a brewer-led tour of the brewery, or some free samples at our growler bar. We’re ready for you…are you ready for Heavyfest?

Welcome to April, folks. It’s finally beginning to warm up a bit, and before you know it, it’ll be 80, sunny and loud outside. Yep, music festivals are just around the corner. For those of us who are veterans of the festival circuit, you most likely know what’s required for a guaranteed good time out there. For those of you who will be heading to your first, be sure to go prepared. Good, cleanable shoes, sunblock, water, cash, homies, tent, hand sanitizer, some TP. Those are just the basics. A solid state of mind, a good schedule, some Immodium, no cares and canned beer are some others. Here’s a nice little list that may help. We’ll be at a bunch of festivals this year, slingin’ beer and dancing around. If you’re hitting any, let us know which ones.
