Humble Hero at The Double E November 23, 2018   Leave a comment

Humble Hero pic by Tim Lewis

I had a great time seeing music Friday night at The Double E. It had been a long day of running errands but I hadn’t checked out the band in a while, and was hungry for tacos, so I took the drive to Essex. The start time was improbably listed as 6:45 so I arrived around 6 and had plenty of time to eat. I wandered into the almost full show room around 6:30 and a few minutes later the room filled and Humble Hero began to play. I had seen a couple of acoustic shows in that room and hoped the band would just rock out. David Francis played an acoustic guitar instead of an electric but Jerry’s bass playing rocked and Mike’s drumming was strong and I was in a happy place. They opened with a cowpunk vibe as they asked where is law and order in a song called Fortress. I loved the sound and the way they put the song together and was smiling from the first note. They sang a song about sanctity called Chaos Theory then Jerry sang a song about reconnecting. I think it was called Siren. Dave returned to vocals for a cover of a cover of Dylan’s Senor. A song about being sorry senorita followed then they sang about being by my side. Jerry sang a song about getting the hang of this then Dave lead the band as they rocked out a song called Celebrate. They closed set one with their signature song that some DJ keeps playing. L Ron Hubbard is such a fun song.

During the set break I chatted with cool people like Eric Koval and Hunter Phelps then ducked back in the room when I heard the music play. Dave began the second set solo and the band joined him at the very end of the song about lying in bed like Bryan Wilson would. The band rocked out a song about Claudine which featured some fun lyrics. They pulled out a cover of Radio Nowhere then mixed things up a little. Dave moved to bass and Jerry took the guitar and sang about excusing me my dear if I disappear. They went back to the normal lineup for Gotta Get Away which featured the fun lyric “hello 2am it’s me again.” The room was full of parents and kids and the little ones from the back row requested Where Is My Mind. The band obliged and played a sweet version of the Pixies song. They closed set two with a trio of songs they refer to as the drinking trilogy. The first was a song about drinking a box of wine called The Ocean Song. The line about how my life doesn’t come pre-assembled jumped out. They followed with The Dude At The Bar and closed with an Irish drinking song called The Beer Song. Everybody’s Favorite Irish Drinking Songs Band should really add that one to their roster.

I hung out for the break then settled back in as Dave opened set three solo. He told stories all night long about growing up in Ireland and is an endearing front man. He sang a song about how in the ’60’s a lot of Irish people went to England for work in the building trades and about how many never made it home. The band returned for a fun indie rocker about dear your majesty. A song about unemployment in Ireland called We Govern The Breeze was brilliant then they played a pretty song about a birds eye view. They sang about trust issues on CIA then sang about how people in power have abused people’s trust in Can’t Take Away. A fun indie rocker called Playground got the audience clapping along. I think it was in F sharp minor. They closed the night with a song about a Television Show but the audience wanted more. They encored with a strong quirky rocker called Hollywood that got the kids dancing.

I said a quick goodbye and took the short drive home. I found the right road this time and was pleased I put the effort in.

Danny & The Parts and The Leatherbound Books at Sidebar Nobember 24, 2018   Leave a comment

IMG_1628

The Leatherbound Books pic by Tim Lewis

I had a great time seeing music Saturday night at SideBar. It was a long work day and I got home and settled and had to scrape myself off the couch and push myself out the door. Once I got into the walking groove, I found a happy pace and cruised downtown. I arrived a few minutes late but the opening band was putting the final touch on their soundcheck so I hung out and settled in.

After a few minutes, The Leatherbound Books took the stage and played some beautiful songs. They played as a duo with Jackie Buttolph on bass and Eric Daniels on acoustic guitar. Both sang separately at times and sounded lovely when they sang together. They began in an all nonsensical way then invited us to look back and see that these were the days. They wondered if you would ever know my name then sang a breakup song for political affiliations. I guess we should have seen it coming. They sang about sinking like a stone while wandering the street then advised us to Save It For Later. They closed the set with Eric putting some distorted fuzz on the guitar while they played a Buzzcodks song I did not know, but really enjoyed. They play very well together and have an endearing sound. I’m so glad I was there.

After a short break, Danny LeFrancois took the stage. With an electric guitar, he opened with a hard to spot take on Tom Petty’s Don’t Do Me Like That which was really sweet. Eric joined him on bass, Jackie joined him on backing vocals and Brennan sat at the drum kit. With the full band assembled Danny & The Parts sang about how all my dreams float away. They followed with a high energy country rocker about how I don’t want to care anymore. Danny switched to acoustic guitar and the band suggested that maybe there’s a war against you. They pulled out a cover to prove that they are Tougher Than The Rest then sang about how you don’t ever listen to me darling. They played a cheery song about how now that we’re alone I’ve got a feeling that you wanna get home then returned to the boss for I’m On Fire. They got a little shoegazey for a song about this old place and a little bluesy for one about daddy. They seemed happy for the day then switched it up a little and had Eric sing Memphis. Jackie sang a cool song with a huge sound then Danny sang one about how I’ve been down that road. The band left and Danny played a couple of songs solo. One was about it taking so long and the other was about staying alive when you’re gone. The band returned and they rocked out a song about how they don’t really want to come down. They whole show was filled with comforting songs that rocked out now and then. Danny has a great sense of how to write a catchy song, and I’m so glad I was there to hear it.

I said a couple of quick goodbyes and took the long walk home. What a beautiful night.

Steve Harris and British Lion with Coney Hatch at Théâtre Corona in Montreal November 5, 2018   Leave a comment

IMG_1445

British Lion pic by Tim Lewis

I had a great time seeing music a week ago Monday at Théâtre Corona in Montreal. I met up with my brother around 2 in Shelburne Vermont, and we took the lovely drive north. It was a bit gray and rainy but not too bad. We made it over the Champlain bridge but found the Atwater exit closed. I took the next one and got hopelessly lost. I drove towards downtown until I found a street that I knew. I took it and eventually found Notre Dame. I found the theater and got a close parking spot. We grabbed a quick bite of dinner then walked up and down the street for a bit. I saw a sign that I thought would take me to the right road when it was time to leave, so I was feeling pretty good. We got in line and waited for a bit then the doors opened.

The Theater is old, intimate and has a lovely character. There were no seats and the balcony was closed. As people arrived it became clear that it would not be jam packed but there was a good crowd. After a bit Coney Hatch hit the stage. They came out and rocked hard and had fun. They told stories of opening the show for Iron Maiden in 1983 at the Montreal Forum, which was my third rock show ever. Apparently, Steve Harris called them to ask them to open for the Canadian leg of the tour. Hatch sang songs for the ladies and for the guys and tossed in a cover of Angel City’s Marsailles that brought back some pleasant memories. In Fallen Angel they said the riff reminded them of something and slid into a little Radar Love before going back and finishing Angel. They pleased the crowd with a string of familiar songs at the end. Hey Operator and Devil’s Deck were cool but I think everyone was most excited for Monkey Bars which closed the set. It was a fun show.

The set break was the usual 30 minutes then Steve Harris British Lion hit the stage. With a strong singer, a killer drummer, twin ripping guitars and Steve on bass, the band played fast and furious. I had not checked out the album so I just listened and rocked out. The first two seemed to fly by at blistering speed. They lightened up a tiny amount when the singer added a little acoustic guitar on a few songs but most of the set was at Maiden speed. They sang about last chances and being bible black and riding the spitfire. They sang of God and Lucifer and how it’s us against the world. I’m pretty comfortable listening to bands play songs I don’t know so I got into the flow and loved every rocking moment. Seeing Steve from 20 feet away was great. He never sings into the microphone but always sings the words and it was nice to be close enough to see it. They played a brand new song for us that was cool then closed the set with a mini epic called Judas. They said that would have closed the set, but did not want to do the leave and come back thing. They stayed on stage and rocked out two more at a stunning pace. What a great show. They shook hands with the front row, tossed out some guitar picks, took a bow and said goodnight.

We left the theater and a steady rain was coming down. We got to the car and drove a couple of blocks and was soon in the Atwater tunnel. I saw the tiny sign for Rt 15 S and took the exit and was soon on the Champlain. The rain added a little challenge for a while, then it eased off and we sailed the rest of the way home. What a great night.

The Radio Bean Birthday party with many bands November 3, 2018   Leave a comment

IMG_1235

Danny LeFrancois

I had a great time seeing music Saturday at Radio Bean and Light Club Lamp Shop. Every year, at this time, The Bean throws a birthday party and celebrates with music all day and night. This year they turned 18 and had 102 scheduled acts. I got going nice and early and arrived a little after 8am. I chatted with Molly King and Loren for a bit then Danny LeFrancois took the stage. Apparently, his band The Parts slept in, so he played the show solo. He began playing acoustic guitar and built a loop. He added a bit of voice and let it go as he moved back to the drum kit and rocked for a bit. He returned to guitar and vocals for a cover of a Petty song that was subtle and cool. He played a couple of sweet original songs that made me smile, then said thank you good morning.

 

IMG_1245

The Steph Pappas Experience

Up next Loren grabbed his bass and headed to the stage. He was joined by Ted Looby on guitar and the mighty The Steph Pappas Experience began to rock. Steph has a strong voice and is a great guitar player too. Several audience members joined in on percussion as she sang about cowyboys and waterboys. She wrapped the three song set with one about going out on the highway. She’s so cool.

 

IMG_1248

Seth Eames and Miriam Bernardo

I hopped into the car and drove to work. I put in a 9-5:30 shift then zipped home. I dropped the car and took the lovely walk downtown. I wasn’t sure where they were on the schedule and did not recognize who was a the Lamp shop, so I slid into the Bean and caught a couple of songs by Miriam Bernardo and Seth Eames. He had a nice voice and played acoustic guitar. Miriam has an incredibly soulful voice and it’s always a treat to hear her sing. They sang a duet on a song about going away to the promised land then she regaled us with a song about how surely you were meant to be mine. It was wonderful.

 

IMG_1254

IMG_1252

Joe Adler and friends

I stayed at the Bean as Joe Adler and his huge band scrunched themselves onto the stage. Joe’s deep voice lead the way as they rocked out a song about going down the road. They followed with Tom Waits’ Bella Ciao then let it slowly slip into Come Together. The audience had fun singing along. It was a great set.

 

IMG_1259

Caroline O’Connor and Adam Frehm

I peeked into the Lamp shop and someone was setting up so I hustled back to the Bean and soon it was time for Caroline Marie to take the stage. She played keys and laid her sultry voice on us as Adam Frehm added some sweet electric guitar. Her long flowy gentle smokey rock sounded great. The first song had a nice trance vibe as did her second, Disco Shaman, through that was a little more uptempo. Both sounded great and I was in a happy place for every moment.

 

IMG_1263

Navah Stein

I stayed at the Bean as the next act, Navah Stein, set up a table on stage. A couple sat at the table and poured spagettin out of a pot onto the plates and grated some Parmesan on top then began to eat. I wasn’t sure where they were going with it and took a chance and headed over to the Lamp shop.

 

IMG_1270

I timed it perfectly as Ryan Ober and The Romans began to play. They oozed talent and played a couple of really cool rock songs. They played an older cover that I did not know from 1951, and had the crowd rocking. Bob Wagner sat in on the last song and it sounded like an old blues rock song. Towards the end Ryan and Bob had twin ripping guitar leads going and it was a wonder to behold.

 

IMG_1275

Brett Hughes and the Honky Tonk band

I popped back to the Bean and Brett Hughes and the Honky Tonk band were on. They played a song about a lawyer then a sweet one about hearing a whistle blowing last night. The last song had a ’50’s noir surf rock feel as they sang I’m coming home. Lowell Thompson ripped out a sweet lead that kept me smiling.

 

IMG_1276

Francesca Blanchard

I popped back to the Lamp Shop and Francesca Blanchard was about to start. She sang a song about an ex-girlfriend that was pretty amusing. She played a delightful new song about how the world is turning slightly off kilter. She closed with a gorgeous cover of Dylan’s Make You Feel My Love. I love her music so much.

 

IMG_1286

Ivamae

I meant to head back to the Bean to catch Kim Jordan but they said it was at capacity so I ducked back into the Lamp Shop. Ivamae got up to play and the room became pin drop silent, as usual. With a strong voice and a quiet electric guitar she emits a ton or power and melted me from the first note. Her second song was a cool one called Honey Bee and she wrapped up the enchanting set with one that ended tell me what you might be.

 

IMG_1287

Swale

It was getting close to a crucial time so I ducked back to the Bean and was able to get in. I got settled as SWALE took the stage. They opened with Eric Olsen singing a powerhouse version of Eighteen. I love that Alice Cooper song and they did a great version of it. Up next was a brand new song called Shrug It Out that was cool. I think it was about how we can see everyone you’ve ever been. They closed with a cover that I did not know but loved. It was a dark heavy rocker and Amanda Gustafson let loose her powerhouse voice. It was an amazing set.

 

IMG_1288

Swale

I think Brett and Kat were going on in the Lamp Shop but it looked crowded so I stayed at the Bean to catch Yes Darling. They were a duo with Ryan Montbleau singing and playing guitar and Haley Jane unleashing her powerful voice on us. They had a whole act of a bickering couple that was quite amusing. They played songs about kissing your lips then punching you in the face and how you would be cool if you reached your potential. It’s hard to describe how good it was, but everyone in the room had a smile.

 

IMG_1296

Yes Darling

I hung out at the Bean as Anal Knievel took the stage. You can guess what he began talking about.

 

IMG_1298

Anal Knievel

 

IMG_1302

Paper Castles

I ducked over to the Lamp Shop as Paper Castles began to play. Their relaxed off kilter flowing pop music was a beautiful place get lost in. The music was airy and joyous and I loved going with the flow. They ended the three song set with one about how I’m all right and kept me smiling.

 

IMG_1304

Paper Castles

I headed back to the Bean and Osage Orange were on and playing a song about a medicine girl. They had a cool low fi indie sound that kept me in a happy place. They did a nice version of Buddy Holly’s Everyday then closed with a song about seeing my ghost in the darkness. They are so cool.

 

IMG_1310

I had been bopping between the Bean and the Light Club Lamp Shop, but at this point, I just settled into the Bean for the rest of the night.

Up next, the mighty Miku Daza took the stage. Their sax player was missing but the power trio charged ahead at full rock throttle. They sang about not needing you and how you don’t make it easy so I’m gonna make it hard. They played a powerhouse version of Flaca Daza, and late in the song Sugar the clown made an appearance. She stood on the bar at the back and dove into the arms of the audience. She was carried to the front then danced madly on and off the stage. The band let Flaca transition into Panic and we danced hard. Before the last song the band removed their shirts. Don’t worry, Miku had a bra and the guys had tape over their nipples so no one had to be shocked. The band ripped up a killer version of the song about the tree I’m climbing and called it a night. Wow.

 

IMG_1332

Miku Daza

Up next, Jeremy Rayburn got up to speak. He was very glad that the eighteen year old Radio Bean would not be drafted, and said other nice things about the wonderful place.

 

IMG_1341

Jeremy Rayburn

As he spoke, the band set up behind him. When ready, Cave Bees hit us hard and heavy with Juliet. They followed with another cool new song called Happy Man. It had a ripping bass line and Creston let loose a killer lead guitar break. They followed with another brand new one called Future Now that was really good too. They kept the pace at full speed for Golden Goose and closed the set by rocking the Queen City tonight. It’s always a great time when they play.

 

IMG_1345

Cave Bees

Dre followed with a story about meeting someone at the Bean and going on an adventure. It was fun, and she used it to describe how many people have met at the Bean and gone on to create wonderful stories. She did a nice job capturing the magical community that inhabits the Bean.

 

IMG_1349

Dre

As she left the stage Nico Suave and the Bodacious Supreme began to play. They opened hard and heavy with Over The Hills And Far Away. Nicole’s powerhouse voiced filled the room. They stayed with Zeppelin for the whole set and ripped up Heartbreaker. I thought they might let it go into Living Loving Maid but they took a turn and dropped it into Communication Breakdown. It was glorious.

 

IMG_1361

Nico Suave and the Bodacious Supreme

On the side of the stage Matt Matthew Bryan Hagen MC rapped out a couple of amusing songs. I missed the details of the first one, as I got another drink, but was locked in for the second as he spilled the beans. Such an appropriate song.

 

IMG_1365

Matt Hagen MC

A trio who identified as robots and binary followed. The Tsunamibots taught us to surf and rocked us hard. They sang of the surfing craze in the robotic age and murder robots on holiday. They wrapped the set with a song about a young robot trying to catch its first wave, then sang CO2 You Later. I love them so much.

 

IMG_1371

The Tsunamibots

Up next, The Eames Brothers Band band took the stage and turned the night a little bluesy. The first one had slow smokey sound and was about missing you in the night. They took us back to the days of old and locked into a long cool relaxed blues jam. They sang a song about how it’s been a long time coming up to this day, then closed with a fun funky song. They are immensely talented.

 

IMG_1384

The Eames Brothers Band

The stage emptied then filled with Kat Wright and her amazing band. It was late at this point and I was tired but basked in the gorgeous glowing music that they treated us to. Kat’s voice was right on and the band were super tight, even if the horn players had to be on the other side of the sound desk. Bob Wagnerr played a sweet lead on guitar during the second song and the whole room swayed for their entire set. They closed with a super cool version of The River. I don’t see them nearly as often as I would like, so I’m really glad I stuck around.

 

IMG_1385

Kat Wright

Lee Anderson came up to speak and told a couple of stories about this wonderful place he has created. A cake appeared and we all sang Happy Birthday.

 

IMG_1390

Lee Anderson

IMG_1396

The Birthday cake

At this point I needed a grand piano to prop up my mortal remains, but I had to hang out. Julia Caesar opened the set with a brand new song about singing, for it’s the thing that they do. They followed with a familiar song about how it was winter when she chose to blur the lines. Megan Wild Rice had a ripping guitar lead break on Nosedive, then they closed with another brand new one. I think it was about Mars changing direction. They are always amazing.

 

IMG_1408

Julia Caesar

I was exhausted but loved the next band too, so I had to stay for one more set. Preece came on as a trio with Jer Coons playing bass. Their blistering fast loud indie rock was full of joy. They opened with Waste Of Time then followed with Girl In My Bed. I missed the names of the last three but rocked hard to all of them. Preece are truly amazing.

There was at least one more band, but I just had nothing left. I ducked out and took the short walk home. The Radio Bean birthday party is a great opportunity to check out music and I’m so glad that I did.

OK, I’ve got another treat for you. On Tuesday afternoon I spoke with Zach Tenorio Miller from Arc Iris about their new album Icon Of Ego. Here is the interview with him and some songs off the new album. Please note, Zach was in the middle of Kentucky in the wilderness when he called in. There is a double opening since we lost the connection at the beginning, but the rest is smooth sailing. Iris will be at the Stone Church in Brattleboro tomorrow and at ArtsRiot on Saturday.
