“A stunning surprise. I haven’t done anything for two years,” says Adam Baldwin of his win. Then he thinks about this obvious untruth. “I don’t know, I’ve played a couple times at The Marquee. I play piano at bars a lot for extra money. I’m out a lot I guess, at The Local drinking Schooners.” In reality his time has been spent largely on the road this year playing guitar in Matt Mays’ band—including a slate of Gaslight Anthem reunion shows—and working on new music due out next year. You can hear some of it at a pair of acoustic Carleton shows in December. “They named some sort of dish after me at Hopyard, and then this happened,” says Baldwin. “I’m having a big week. I want to say thank you to anyone who gives a shit.”

The price of everything has more or less gone up including heating oil which means staying warm this winter is going to cost you more. What are your ways to try to cut down on heating costs?
