I just got back from my local music radio show on internet only WBKM.org. I highlighted some of the local music that happened last week, will happen next week, and happened today. I also said goodbye to a legend with live music from Essex Jct Vt.
Song before: Maybe I’m Amazed – Paul McCartney and Wings
From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds of Burlington. It’s been a horrible mixture of rain and a wonderful mixture of sun in the past few days. Burlington is luscious and green. This first band played last Friday at Signal Kitchen and I just saw them earlier this evening at Summervale in Burlington’s Intervale. They played this one at both shows.
Kat and the band are at the boathouse tomorrow on the waterfront when Burlington celebrates our nation’s birthday with a huge party and tons of fireworks. The band are also at Radio Bean tonight and Summervale next week. Madaila and the Snaz are two bands I’ve been wanting to see and will on Saturday when they play on a ferry on Lake Champlain. It’s about time, eh? Hmmm, Swale. OK, here is the next song on the album I’m working my way through, song after song, week after week. JV is such a great album.
Dino played a killer show at The Monkey House last Saturday. The Mountain Says No opened the show with a stunning set, and released JV, then Dino rocked the end of the night away. Champlain is a fresh water lake, so no worry about whales when Villanelles play on the boat cruse Saturday with the other two. Another killer song from Rabbit’s new album Red Flannel Hash. OK, we lost a legend this week. I really got into Yes in the ’90’s and can’t believe Chris Squire has passed away. In September of 2004 they played a show with Anderson, White, Wakeman, Howe, and the mighty Chris Squire. Let’s say goodbye to him with a bunch of music from that show.
9.) Firebird Suite->Going For The One – Yes (official)
10.) Yours Is No Disgrace – Yes
11.) And You And I – Yes
12.) Awaken – Yes
13.) Every Little Thing – Yes
That was the opening, and most of set 2 from the Essex show. You will be missed Chris Squire! This is not from Essex but is from Chris and Jon Anderson
14.) Amazing Grace (live) – Chris Squire
15.) Where Have All The Flowers Gone? – U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders and 30 VT musicians
16.) Today Is Tomorrow – The Red Telephone
17.) Sayonara – Black Rabbit
I’m not sure if I’m going to close all my shows with that one from now on, or show some restraint. I guess we will find out in the next few weeks. If you like the RT song, go to Radio Bean on Monday and catch The Nancy Druids. I don’t think they will play that song, but the songs they play will sound a bit like that. People are paying attention and coming out to see Bernie! It’s so great. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?
Song after: A Gentleman’s Excuse Me – Fish
