ABOUT THE MIGHTY MIGHTY BOSSTONES: Since their inception in 1984, The Mighty Mighty Bosstones have been one of rock music’s most prolific touring and recording bands. During their 27 year career they have played thousands of shows all over the world and released a slew of ground breaking albums.

 

The Bosstones formed when Cambridge, Massachusetts high school chums Joe Gittleman, Nate Albert and Ben Carr approached Dicky Barrett about fronting their new band. Barrett agreed and brought in his pals Tim Bridwell and Tim Burton on horns. They were joined by drummer Josh Dalsimer. In early 1984 the band played its first gigs in several clubs and barrooms around Boston. Barrett, Gittleman, Burton and Carr have remained constant members. The current line-up also includes drummer Joe Sirois, who replaced Dalsimer in 1991, Saxaphonist Kevin Lenear, an early member who left the band in 1998 and returned in 2008, and guitarist Lawrence Katz and trombonist Chris Rhodes, both of whom joined in 2000.

 

The Bosstones are credited as a progenitor of the ska-punk genre, and the creators of its sub-genre ska-core, a form of music which mixes ska with punk and hardcore. Since the release of their 1989 debut album Devil’s Night Out, the band has toured and recorded extensively. They were a key figure in the development of the mid-90’s “Third Wave” ska scene and one of the first bands to popularize the genre in the musical mainstream with their platinum-selling 1997 album Let’s Face It, and its hit single “The Impression That I Get.” They have also earned the reputation as one of the hardest touring bands in rock. The band released seven studio albums, three EPs and a live album by the time they announced a hiatus in December 2003.

 

In the fall of 2007 the Bosstones reunited to resume touring and recording, releasing their eighth studio album, Pin Points and Gin Joints, in December 2009. Their newest album, The Magic of Youth, was released on December 6, 2011. www.bosstonesmusic.com

 

ABOUT BROOKLYN BOWL:

Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas is the brand’s third location. The original location opened in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn in 2009 in the former Hecla Iron Works building (built in 1882) and was the first L.E.E.D. certified bowling alley in the world. The second Brooklyn Bowl location opened in January 2014 at the O2 in London, and was hailed by the London Evening standard as a “…wonderland of food, drink, music and pins”.

Brooklyn Bowl New York has hosted a diverse range of acts including Kanye West, Elvis Costello, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Gossip, HAIM, Snoop Dogg, Guns N’Roses, James Murphy, Adele, Paul Simon, Big Boi, Moby, N.E.R.D, Talib Kweli, and Solange. Named Zagat’s “Best Music Venue – New York City” for three consecutive years (as well as “Best Bowling Alley” and “Best Brooklyn Venue”) and one of the best clubs in America by Rolling Stone.  Eater described their menu as “epic,” while the New Yorker hailed the club’s unprecedented combination of top-flight music, beer, bowling, and food as “like nailing a spare on a four-ten split.”

2014 Great Vegas Festival of Beer’s New Interactive Elements Tap into the Growing Craft Lifestyle of Downtown

2014 Great Vegas Festival of Beer’s New Interactive Elements Tap into the
Growing Craft Lifestyle of Downtown
Gastropub, Human Arcade, BrewLogic sessions and live music highlight Las
Vegas’ premier craft beer event

The 2014 Great Vegas Festival of Beer will embrace and transform the streets of its new home in Downtown’s Fremont East Entertainment District with a full lineup of craft beer-infused elements, including the Gastropub dining pavilion, the Human Arcade with pub games and music, and the BrewLogic area with presentations from master brewers and Cicerones on Saturday, April 26 from 4 to 8 p.m.

“We really challenged ourselves this year to create an experience that will be super exciting to the beer enthusiast and equally approachable to the casual, or even infrequent, beer drinker,” said Brian Chapin founder of Motley Brews. “With new additions like the Gastropub and the Human Arcade, this has become as much about the lifestyle surrounding craft beer as it is about the brews themselves, and we’re really excited to see the way people embrace the new location and these new elements.”

Expanding on the craft beer culture, the 2014 festival will have endless offerings as it aims to showcase Las Vegas’ burgeoning craft beer market for both locals and visitors. What Chapin calls “more than just another beer fest,” this year’s festival will introduce some great educational and culinary elements to enhance the craft experience.

Introducing a more beer-inspired culinary element to this year’s festival, the Gastropub focuses on how craft beer fuels recipes and accentuates the way food is enjoyed. Local restaurants and breweries have partnered to create complex, beer-infused menus with highlights including dishes from Naked City Pizza, Desnudo Tacos, The Goodwich, Brooklyn Bowl, Stack, Fat Choy, Echo & Rig, Lulu’s Bread and Breakfast and Chef Mike Minor’s new Truck U Barbeque food truck. These culinary marvels will be cooking up one-of-a-kind dishes inspired by craft beers, such as Naked City’s Lamb Meatball Pizza or Brooklyn Bowl’s Sweet and Spicy Catfish. Food in the Gastropub will be available for purchase and is not included as part of the festival ticket.

Out of the sun and inside Fremont Country Club, the Human Arcade will bring out the crowd’s inner child with “grown-up” twists on classic party games like giant-Jenga, bean bag toss and “bear pong.” Across the playing field, festival-goers will get their groove on at the “Silent Disco,” where guests donning headphones can tune into a variety of live DJ sets and hit the dance floor. Throughout the festival, live performances by Las Vegas’ very own Rusty Maples and Los Angeles-based Crash Kings will entertain those wandering Fremont between sips.

With Vegas being home to some of the industry’s leading mixologists and cicerones, the BrewLogic series invites beer enthusiasts of all levels to sit in on casual talks and demonstrations as well as participate in guided tastings to enhance their craft beer knowledge. The festival’s new series creates the unique opportunity for guests to form a better understanding of craft beer and new appreciation for their favorite beverage.

While more than 80 breweries will be representing more than 250 unique beers, a surefire favorite at this year’s festival will be the official festival beer, Sweet ‘N Funky Desert Junkie. Brewed by Joseph James Brewing Company exclusively for this year’s festival, the beer is a Honey Blonde Ale, brewed with local desert honey for a subtle sweet flavor and aroma, two-row malt and saaz hops. The beer’s name and logo were both created by Las Vegas locals through a social media contest.

An exclusive VIP area, known as the Brewers Lounge, will take root at the centrally-located Commonwealth. VIPs will get exclusive access to beer cocktails, reserve pours and small, beer-inspired plates crafted and served by the neighboring La Comida.

Tickets are currently on sale and available for General Admission for $35 and Early Entry for $45, until Saturday, April 19. Pending availability, tickets will be available for General Admission for $40 and Early Entry for  $50, from Saturday, April 19 until the day of the festival. VIP tickets have already sold out. Doors open for Early Entry and VIP ticket holders at 3 p.m. A portion of ticket proceeds will benefit The Neon Museum and Nevada Craft Brewers Association (NCBA). For more information or to purchase tickets, please visit the Great Vegas Festival of Beer website.
