Re: “Nectar's, a Burlington Landmark, at 40

Empty Pockets had some really fun gigs at Nectars!! The list of forbidden tunes posted on the stage wall always cracked me up! "No Stairway to Heaven. No Mustang Sally". "Sally" was always one of EP's most requested tunes because no one sings it like a girl, right? So sure enough, we'd get two measures in, and cardboard coasters flung by irate bartenders would come whizzing through the air! Had one hit me in the face once, and I grinned and kept on singing!

Thank you, Nectar, for all you did for the VT music scene! We love you!

Always enjoyed listening to Road Apple and the Enzones. And Nectar's dark meat special was the best deal in town!

Re: “Nectar's, a Burlington Landmark, at 40

I used to go to Nectar's in mid 70's, I was in my mid 20's then, of course left Burlington and have been back for the past two years. My memories are great, but I have not been in since my return. My beef with the music scene here is there is no heavy, alt metal or hard rock. At 62 years old, its still my fav genre. I wish someone would promote some hard frickin rock in this town. But will not argue how good the gravy fries were and probably still are. Come on Nectar's get out of your comfort zone get some rock that ROCKS. Tekethe seconds from bands touring Montreal or Boston at least.

Re: “Nectar's, a Burlington Landmark, at 40

I loved that round bar, and my preference was grilled cheese & tomato sandwiches ( gravy on the side). + I saw my first Phish show there in Oct 87! But you can't leave Ninja Custodian out of the list of bands. Those dudes were serious freaks. Congrats Nectar's on 40 years..,,,keep it going.

Sonny is Phil Ochs' sister, not his daughter.

Re: “Composer Ben Vida on Process, Psychoacoustics

I think the term is "otoacoustic emission"

Re: “Grace Potter Serves Up a Solo Album. Also, French Toast

Very good interview you "perv". It is such a good take on who Grace is: Whoever she wants to be!! She wanted to do a POP album and did it for her own motives. That is who she is and has always been. I hate the current incarnation but she needed to do it. I will go to the show because I want to see how it plays LIVE. However, I won't criticize because this interview really nailed her "Motives"!! Thanks!!

Re: “A Burlington Music Vet Goes Into the Vinyl Business

I love those Crowther Boys. They've really made an impact in VT and I truly believe in Justin's idea. It's simply "supply and demand" and he's on the forefront. GOOD LUCK, GOD'S SPEED, AND KEEP WORKING HARD!!!

Re: “A Burlington Music Vet Goes Into the Vinyl Business

This is great. Congrats and good luck! Fantastic Partnerz wanted to go vinyl on our new record—this would have affected our decision for sure.
