From 2001-2009 a small bar in Brookline led the way in the music scene in Boston. Heavy hitters sat in, future Beyonce band members learned their chops, Citizen Cope played, G-Love, Barr Brothers, The Slip, Lotus, Lake Street Dive, Madi Diaz, Melvin Sparks, Dub Apocalypse, Thousands of One, Rubblebucket, Dopapod, Giant Panda Gorilla Dub Squad, Boston Afrobeat, Wild Sextet, State Radio ETC…..
The house band and musicians that kicked the whole scene off was PUBLIC HOUSE. I booked them, as well as all the above, and they are playing in Jamaica Plain for one night only at THE HAVEN. DO NOT MISS THIS SHIT. It’s only $5/ FREE.


Whisky Wednesday – Bruichladdich – The BEAST

PROGRESSIVE HEBRIDEAN DISTILLERS of classic and peaty single malt whisky, including the world’s most heavily peated whisky, Octomore.
It started out as a late night “What If?” idea after a few drams…
“What if we distilled the most heavily-peated barley humanly possible, in the tall, narrow-necked Bruichladdich stills?”

The legendary Octomore, named for the farm above Port Charlotte is a dram that has taken the world by storm.
The world’s most heavily peated single malt has had a brobdingnagian effect on a world aching for a challenge to comfortable convention. An esoteric series of numbered, experimental, mostly very limited releases, has fatally undermined the assumption that the quality of Scotch whisky is simply a function of its age.
Stop by The Haven and indulge in THE LADDIE FLIGHT– 3 drams for $25 – INCLUDING OCTOMORE – one of the few places that is carrying it in the whole of Boston and at the best Dram price!

Whisky Wednesday – Hazelburn

Hazelburn Distillery was a distillery in Campbeltown, Scotland, which was in operation between approximately 1825 and 1925. In 1886, it had 22 employees and produced 192,000 gallons of whisky per year, making it the largest distillery in the town. Nowadays Springbank produces the Hazelburn bottling. Campbeltown single malts are single malt Scotch whiskies distilled in the burgh of Campbeltown, on the Kintyre peninsula in Scotland. Once a major producer of whisky with as many as 28 distilleries, and claiming the title “whisky capital of the world”, its production has markedly declined. Most of the distilleries have gone out of business and little trace of them remains.
