I was really expecting to make it downtown on July 3rd to see Kat Wright and the Indomitable Soul band but after a crushing day at work, I just had no energy left.  I did not realize what it was until the fireworks started and I started crying.  My dad loved fireworks and he passed away last September.  This was my first independence day celebration where I could not just walk to the waterfront and hang out with him and watch the spectacular show.  I can see most of the fireworks from my living room window and it was a better place to let my sadness flow, rather than in a large crowd.

Monday was the holiday and I worked 8 hours and there was nothing on the music calendar that attracted my attention.  Same for today, Tuesday July 5th.  Tomorrow, well tomorrow could go a couple of ways.

Aspero Saicos are pretty cool and are playing at ArtsRiot.  The write up says “Aspero Saicos: Peruvian Teen Angst featuring members of ROUGH FRANCIS and special guest; Brian Wilson (on bass)
The Soaks: Garage-Pop from San Diego CA
Disco Phantom: Spinning tunes and saving your life.

That sounds like the way to go, except there is a potentially great show happening at Nectar’s.

Villanelles • Every Wednesday in July w/ special guests

w/ Invisible Homes

Villanelles • Every Wednesday in July w/ special guests

I love Invisible Homes and really like Villanelles.  I was sure I was going to this show before finding about the Saicos show.  I’m not sure which way I will end up going, but I will have a show to write up on Thursday morning.  Stay Tuned.

Coming up tonight in Burlington VT   Leave a comment

Tonight at 10pm at Finnigan’s is a great local pick up band called Everybody’s Favorite Irish Drinking Songs Band.  They hand out songbooks, we sing with the band, hot potatoes are thrown to the audience.  It’s always a splendid time.  Come see them tonight, if you like.  They also play around 2 or 2:30 tomorrow at Red Square.

I’m lining up my radio show on internet only radio station WBKM. It looks like I’ve got 10 songs to play tonight. I think it’s going to get a bit spacey. Make sure your headphones are working, take a stop at the incense shop, or whatever you need to do to get ready. It all begins at 9pm Eastern US time. Let’s show the world how psychedelic Burlington can be.  You can listen in by clicking the link above.  At the site, click the flower to listen.
