About Long Play: An Album-Inspired Beer & Concert Project
Presented by The Press Room and Liars Bench Beer Co. featuring Harry Nilsson’s “Nilsson Schmilsson” (performed by Jazzputin & friends) and Liars Bench’s “Nielsen Schmielsen” (double IPA exclusive release).
Let’s take a little trip back to 1971. It’ll still be a few years until Harry Nilsson will gain notoriety as John Lennon’s go-to Hollywood drinking buddy (and Smothers Brothers heckling cohort). Few know that the man is about to release his masterpiece. We’re referring to Nilsson Schmilsson, of course—the record that would go on to make Nilsson a household name, earn him placement on Pitchfork’s “Top 100 Albums of the 1970s,” and cement his standing among music history’s most beloved singers and songwriters. This, friends, is an album worth celebrating. Which is why we couldn’t have been more excited to learn that it was a favorite of our good buds at Liars Bench—and when they approached us to help them play proper tribute to it, we jumped at the chance. So, Liars Bench is releasing a delightful limited double IPA inspired by the record (fittingly named Nielsen Schmielsen and brewed with the famed Nelson Sauvin hops)—the perfect beverage to enjoy as the incredible Jazzputin, along with friends Taylor O’Donnell, Dave Talmage and more, perform their own unique recreation of this treasured piece of music at The Press Room.
After performing Nilsson Schmillson, Jazzputin will close the night with a second set of their original tunes and signature off-kilter renditions of popular songs.
