Tonight’s local music radio show on WBKM runs from 9-11pm US Eastern time and can be heard from the Facebook link above, at 107.1FM or streamed at WBKM.ORG. Tonight’s show has some solid rock and will highlight a tiny amount of the ton of music that happened last week and will happen next week. The show will go as follows:
Song before: Me And A Gun – Tori Amos
From our small city to the great big world, these are the sounds of Burlington. I was pretty shocked by the mass shooting in Orlando this week and think it’s high time we did something about finding ways to help disaffected youth and to at least make sure people purchasing guns have to go through a background check. There is no reason assault rifles should be for sale to the public and I was stunned by the Seven Days article this week that explained how easy it is to get one with no ID at all. Now that the problem is defined, can we find a solution? Of course, instead of focusing on hate and fear, if we focus on joy and music we can make our world a happy place. Let’s begin tonight with a band who played on Church St on Sunday to help close out Jazzfest. They did a great version of this one.
I really enjoyed seeing Rabbit at Four Quarters Brewing on Saturday. They played that one, and the rest of their catalog, and a few covers. Great brand new songs from Kids and Particles. I just loved the show by the Breaks on Sunday. OK, up next is a band who are playing at Higher Ground tonight.
Joe and his band The Wee Folkestra will be at Burger Night at Bread And Butter Farm in Shelburne tomorrow. Phil Yates and the band will be at Nectar’s on Monday. I just found that song from Coquette. They have been playing around town lately so I thought I’d toss it into the mix. Great song from Admiral. OK, last week we finished off playing Callisto by Alpenglow all the way through, so it’s time to begin a new album. This is a classic from a few years ago. It’s called Giant Places by a band called Lendway.
Such a wonderful song from Peg. I was looking through some old playlists the other day and though it was time to pull Thinner out again. The Raq song always gets me going. Great song from Lendway. That is the first song from Giant Places and I will play that album all the way through over the next few weeks. OK, This band are playing a couple of shows in Woodstock Vt on June 17 and 18 so check them out if you are in the area.
Great song by Button. They have a show coming up in a few weeks with Cave Bees and Black Rabbit so I’m getting psyched early. I love that rocker from Crazy. Aggressive will be at The Monkey House next Wednesday. I love the Vetica song, and Swale too. OK, let’s keep rocking. This band will be at Foundation (under Drink) on Friday.
Classic Burlington song from the Wards. VIV were recommended so I had to check out that song. Grip will play at 242 Main on Friday. This next song is lots of fun.
Killer song from Mountain. They should have a new album reasonably soon. Same for Francis. Zola were a great local band from the ’90’s. This next song is usually a closer but I think it will fit well here:
Great song from the central Vermont band. Alice has put so much great music into our town. Vedora played some great shows for a couple of years. Hmmm, The Cush. OK, there is time for a couple more.
I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we? Farewell…
