The Onset Pub and Lounge hosts local bands on Friday and Saturday evenings from 9:00-midnight. It is located at the Crotched Mountain Ski & Ride in Bennington, but you don't need to be on the slopes in order to take in some fine live music. There is plenty of seating at the bar, tables, and couches, with ample room for dancing to both covers and original songs. Pub food is on the menu as well as drink specials, draft and bottled beer, and wine. These concerts are part of Midnight Madness where all of the slopes are open until 3:00AM.The concert series goes from late December - the end of February. There is no cover.
