Analog-A-Go-Go is back and better than ever! Our annual vinyl swap and cask beer fest is going down June 13-14 at both our brewery and brewpub in coastal Delaware.
At the top of the bill is Bob Mould, best know as the singer, songwriter and guitarist for the ‘80s rock band Hüsker Dü. Mould, who NPR calls "one of the great heros of American indie rock,” will be playing a free show Friday night at our Rehoboth Beach pub.
On Saturday, Mutual Benefit will take the stage. This music project’s latest album “Love’s Crushing Diamond” was one of Pitchfork’s Top 50 of 2013. Only 100 tickets at $10 each will be sold for this show. (Available May 1 right here.)
And that’s just the beginning. The core of Analog is Saturday’s vinyl swap and cask beers. Other Music, KA-CHUNK!, Rainbow Records and several private collectors will be selling records, and artists, artisans and retailers will be under the big tent offering their finest wares.
On Saturday at the brewery, Analog-goers will hear from Steve Fallon, who opened the legendary Hoboken club Maxwell’s in 1978. His musical direction in the club’s jukebox and on its stage helped shape what is now known as indie rock. In 1982, he formed Coyote Records to release albums by The Feelies, Chris Stamey and Yo La Tengo, to name a few. In the late ‘80s, he worked as a talent scout for A&M Records.
The beer lineup is the icing on the Analog cake. Our guest brewery, Birreria, will be dropping in with a few casks from their Manhattan rooftop brewery, and we’ll be pouring — among many others — the much-loved 75 Minute IPA.
Food, with vegetarian options, will be available from the always tasty Bethany Blues and our very own Bunyan’s Lunchbox, which serves beer-infused brats, pickles and clam chowder.
Tickets for Saturday's music swap and cask fest are $10, and ticket-holders will get a keepsake mini English pint glass, a beer log, a brewery tour and a solid good time enjoying some vinyl and art. (Please note that this does not include the Mutual Benefit show on Saturday at the pub.)
