Miss out on tix for this Sunday's Irene benefit show with Grace Potter & the Nocturnals at the Flynn? You're in luck. Vermont Public Television will carry two hours of the gig, live on the teevee beginning at 8 p.m., and stream the broadcast on their website, vpt.org. And just so viewers don't feel like they're freeloading in our state's great hour of need, they can chip in with donations via phone or online during the broadcast. They won't, however, be able to sample Long Trail's Goodnight Irene Ale, a smooth-drinkin' brown ale brewed up especially for the show, which will be served at the Flynn and other bars around town. They'll just have to settle for cans of Heady Topper at home.
Speaking of Irene bennys, here's a vid put together by the fine folks at Okay Okay Creative documenting the recent Brave Little State benefit concert at Higher Ground.
