I just got back from my local music radio show on internet only WBKM.org. It touched on several styles of the great music we have in our town.
From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I want to thank Eric and Tony for giving me this chance to show off how great of a music scene we have. Thanks for the megaphone.
Last Saturday was the Girls Rock Vermont showcase at Higher Ground. I missed the show but love the energy that gets put into helping girls learn to form bands and learn about the music business. People like Samara Lark Brown, who sings with Wave, and Linda Bassick are among the many people who make it happen every year. Josh’s daughter was one of the performers. Also, I caught a couple of songs by Linda and her other band, Steady Betty, yesterday. They sounded great at the packed restaurant on the water. OK, this next set is just for fun. It’s dedicated to all of the working people out there.
Wow, that flowed nicely. Circle of the job life. OMG it’s so hot out. It’s been ’90’s for the last four days. Let’s go to the beach.
Yesterday I stopped at Breakwaters for one beer with Steady Betty, went and saw Noodle and No Son Of Mine (metal bands) at Twofourtwo Main, then went over to Radio Bean and caught a lovely set by Jericho. That Pours song sounds so liquid it feels like you are in the water. OK, let’s play the next song from JV, the brilliant album from The Mountain Says No.
Western played a pretty smoking show at Manhattan Pizza and Pub last Saturday. Any chance that song they closed with will be recorded in time for my Halloween show later this year? After Western’s set, this next band followed with a killer show of their own.
17.) Gentle Rain – Jennifer Hartswick
18.) The Slow One – Ellen Powell
19.) Moxie & Gin – Pine Island.
Hmm, interesting mixture. All three are local legends. This next band should be one soon.
That song just wants to make me bounce around and smile. Killer super cool song from Kat and the band. She sounded great singing with Steady Betty yesterday. If I’d had a bit more energy yesterday, after Jerichovox at the Bean I would have gone to Nectar’s to see Binger. OK, let’s rock. Here is the song I meant to play last week.
Oh yes, Burlington can really rock. Well, I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we? Oh, wait, I have a couple of minutes left. Sayonara.
27.) Sayonara – Black Rabbit
