Tonight’s local music radio show on WBKM 107.1FM went as follows:
Song before: Hot Mic – The Tragically Hip
From our small city to the great big world these are the Sounds of Burlington. It’s a lovely night in town and with a couple of outdoor shows happening there is literally music in the air. I want to begin by thanking Higher Ground for sponsoring WBKM.ORG and for all of the great music they bring to town, such as the Milk Carton Kids show happening next Wednesday. This first artist played a cool show at Light Club Lamp Shop on Tuesday and just released a new album called You Are What You Pretend To Be,
I just had to bookend the set with those two similar songs from Milton’s new album. That is another great song from Andriana’s Cascade EP. Great song from the Austin sisters post Zola Turn band. OK, let’s play the next song on Giant Places.
Villanelles played a killer show last night at Nectar’s and opened with that song. Phil and the band just finished up a tour and will play Saturday at The Monkey House. 1881 will be there too, so I will finally get to see them. Hmmmm, Lendway. This next band opened for Villanelles last night.
They were so great last night and I can’t wait for some of their new songs to get recorded. Great song from Western. I swear I will play some other Gneiss songs but I just love that one so much I keep wanting to play it. Swale played a nice version of Cancer last night. Next Wednesday Villanelles will have Dino Bravo and The Mountain Says No open the show. This is the song that closed out last night.
It was cool to hang out with Ryan Cohen and Jedd Kettler last Saturday after Mountain played at Manhattan Pizza and Pub. Ryan records bands and plays in Phantom. Mountain played a killer version of Bomb last week. I can’t wait for next Wednesday. Bravo always rock. Another cool show that is happening Saturday is at 242 Main and is the 20th anniversary of Big Heavy World. I want to thank James Lockridge for all that he has done for our music community. This is one of the bands that will play at that show.
It’s always nice to take a walk around the streets of Burlington with the Blondes and some of their favorite beverages. That was a song from Death’s new album N.E.W. and it rocks nicely. Doom are playing Sunday at Finnegan’s. I only saw this next band a couple of times but I do miss them.
That is one of the iconic songs from our music scene. Envy will reunite on July 28th and I’m very excited. Rabbit are playing a benefit for Henry St Deli soon. It’s hot and it’s summer.
Forest played the open mic at Manhattan last night and it was nice to run into him and chat for a bit. Great song from Anais who will play Higher Ground in September. Jenn put out a great album after leaving Zola Turn and that is one of those songs. Hana is just so great, and so is Peg Tassey. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?
