I had a great time seeing music Thursday in the Interval in Burlington’s swath of farmland. Throughout the summer there is a fun festival on Thursdays with lots of families, fun activities, food, and music. I had a long day, but the schedule looked like there was a bit of a gap, so I took the lovely walk to Summervale. I chatted with a couple of cool people and stood in line to get some food. The band went on earlier than expected so I listened from afar for the first couple of songs.

The sound was pretty good off to the side as Milton Busker and the Grim Work lit into a song about letting you down. They followed with a cool version of The Basement Song, and followed with That Person Aside You. It was lovely as always, and I finally got settled into a nice spot on the ground in front of the band. They kicked up the pace for Glad To See You Go and I was in a happy place. Up next was a song I did not know. It was a wry tale of how we thank good guys with guns, set to a funky musical flow. It made me smile. Lost Cause followed and had some especially nice guitar mandolin interplay between Dave and Jom. Jesus In Chains has that great message and sounded powerful when Milton let his voice loose at the end. They slowed it down for a gorgeous Baby Let My Money Keep You Warm, then they raved it up for a fun cover of Men At Work’s Overkill. This got the little kids up and dancing and running and having a blast. They played a song that sounded new that was about how it all comes down to the face you wear or market share or something. It was very cool. They kicked up the pace for a cover of Driver 8 and closed the set with their take on Eleanor Rigby.

At that point it was about 7pm. I thought about staying for a couple more songs, but realized that it would really be best to just go home and get set for my radio show later that night. It was a really lovely time and I’m so glad I caught what I did.
