Matt Hagen’s Shocktober series at Light Club Lamp Shop part 3, Angel Bones and the Filthy Fist, October 17 2019   Leave a comment

Shocktober 5

All photos by Luke Awtry Photography

I had a great time seeing music Thursday night at Light Club Lamp Shop. It was the third part of Matthew Bryan Hagen‘s Shocktober series.

This week’s version was billed as “Angel Bones and the Filthy Fist”. Imagine if you will, Matt Hagen alternating between a spooky guitar and a spookier keyboard. Imagine a long sprawling jam that rose from gentle beauty to terrifying heights. What could give the sound even more depth? How about Lauren Costello‘s amazing cello playing. What could give the sound a more eerie edge? How about Johnnie Day Durand‘s musical saw. Together they built a dark sonic platform. Once they settled in a little, Annie Parmalee cited the name of a movie and two characters. Chris Friday and Kris Brown became the characters and recited a few lines from the classic horror movie that Annie mentioned. Throughout the night they moved through some of the Halloween movies and some of the Friday the 13th movies. Some bits of dialog were just a couple of lines and some were extended sequences. Some were terrifying and some were outrageously funny. They hit on the classics like The Exorcist, Carrie, Psycho, and The Birds. The packed room hung on every word. Some lines were delivered with exquisite terror and some amusingly butchered. Sometimes they broke the fourth wall and asked, is Happy Death Day really a movie? And, while the dialog was the focus, watching Lauren and Johnnie listen to where Matt was going musically and staying locked in was my favorite part.

The whole show was a very amusing hour, then I zipped home to put a radio show together. There are two more eerie weeks of Shocktober shows still on the books, so head to the Lamp Shop for your Halloween needs.

Thanks to Luke Awtry Photography for the photos. Thanks Robot Dog Studio for filming and recording the show. I’ll be playing parts of it soon on WBKM

Tonight’s local music radio show on WBKM.ORG will run from 9-11pm Eastern time Thursday September 12. You can stream it from the website or here WBKM It will go as follows.

Lined up before
Makarov – James and the Giant Sleep
Exuviae – Kali Ma and the Garland of Arms – KMGA

Song before: Liar – Queen

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Fall is in the air and the nights have been chilly but the days have been warm. Will it stay that way for a couple of weeks?

1.) 80 Degrees In October – Jesse Taylor Band
2.) Darker Now – Eastern Mountain Time
3.) Joyless – SWALE
4.) London – Matthew Mercury

That’s the next song on the Mercury album that I’m playing all the way through, song after song, week after week. That one features a lyric that says don’t break this poor boy down until there’s nothing left. I think we all feel that way sometimes and each song in that set looks at depression and metal illness from different directions. Swale lament the fate of the downtrodden and remind us that we’re all going through this together and that we’re all the same. Eastern look deeply into those dark feelings and Jesse wrote that song to help her come to grips with her demons. If you haven’t read her recent post about why she supports the suicide prevention hotline, you really should. It’s hard to share stories like that but should remind us all that people struggle with life and we need to watch out for each other and if you are feeling very down, please reach out to a friend, and if you don’t have a friend to reach out to, reach out to me. I care about you. OK, I was lucky enough to see this band rock The Monkey House on Tuesday.

5.) Coffee – The Pyros
6.) Dark Circles – The Wet Ones (Amy Wild)
7.) Can’t Stand It – B Boys
8.) Cave – Grivo
9.) Outside – Father Figuer

I caught a great set by Father last night at The Monkey. Grivo came from Austin to play that show and were brilliant. On Tuesday, Pyros, Wet, and B rocked the Monkey nice and hard. It was a fun couple of days. Oh, and this band played last night too.

10.) This Is How It Ends – Community Garden
11.) Two Weeks (’till The End Of The World) – Grand
12.) So Good (I Could Die) – J Bengoy
13.) My Heart – Francesca Blanchard

J, Francesca and Matthew Mercury will play GPN on Saturday on the waterfront. At work we are going through a major computer system upgrade, so I thought I’d play a couple of doom and gloom songs just in case. OK, so I caught a bit of cool music at Art Hop last Friday. Here’s a little taste.

14.) Lights Of Montreal – Lobot
15.) Frosty Pink Skies – Miku Daza
16.) Ragged Way – The Bobby Lees
17.) Owen – Clever Girls
19.) Procession 1 – ROUGH FRANCIS

There was an incredible show at Speaking Volumes that featured Miku, Bobby, Clever and Francis and it was amazing. I saw Zeus Springsteen play the Lobot song at the Green Door and their whole set was great too. OK, let’s head back to the ;90’s.

20.) It’s Real Again – Zola Turn
21.) Pennsylvania – The Red Telephone
22.) Made Of Stars – Milton Busker and the Grim Work
23.) This Ain’t No Love Song – The Red Newts

I’m so happy I have nice recordings of the Newts to play for you. Milton and the band will be at The Double E in a couple of weeks. Those are amazing songs from Telephone and Zola and show off some of the deep rich musical past that we had in town. OK, there was one more performer who played at the show at the Monkey last night. Let’s take a deep dive into exploring art.

24.) What Isn’t Performance – Ouzkxqlzn

I know that was long and intense but wasn’t it so amazing? Well, I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

Tonight we begin a journey through the debut album of Matthew Mercury. I’ll work my way through the whole album in the coming weeks. That’s a great song from Essex. I caught Harrow at Nectar’s on Saturday before the Blondes. I was delighted by their show and wanted to play some of their music. That’s a lovely song from Sabrina.

The Mime is about traveling around the Mississippi and driving is a great way to travel. OK, it’s the time of year when Girls Rock Vermont teaches campers about the music industry and how to get on stage and play. Here is a song by one of the many people who make that happen every year.

18.) Tell Me – Linda Bassick
19.) Manhattan – Bethany Conner Music
20.) Ace Of Spades – Jason Baker
21.) Baby – Francesca Blanchard
22.) Super Powers – The Dead Shakers

That’s such a dreamy song about our power. Thanks Francesca for that lovely new song and cool video. Jason played at Radio Bean tonight. Bethany was in St Albans and Exxex last weekend. That’s such a great song from Linda. Last Saturday folks Rambled around the Old North End of Burlington. It culminated in a cool rock show. The Shakers were there. So were these next four bands.

23.) Hands – J Bengoy
24.) Fantasma – Mal Maïz
25.) Captain 20 – Barbacoa
26.) Falter – Julia Caesar
27.) Californ-i-a – Ryan Ober and The Romans
28.) London – Tom Pearo

I caught a few songs from Tom and his band last week at Light Club Lamp Shop I caught a few songs from Ryan at Radio Bean right before that. With all four of those other bands, the Ramble round up was great. Well, I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

Tonight’s local music radio show on WBKM.ORG will run from 9-11pm Eastern time Thursday July 18. You can stream it from the website or here: WBKM. It will go as follows.

Song before: Countdown – Rush

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Saturday will mark 50 years since humans first went to the moon, and will also be a great day to celebrate the life of one of Burlington’s favorite stars. There will be many events celebrating the life of Matthew Thorsen. Keep your eyes open. OK, let’s begin tonight with a piece of advice that may seem counterintuitive.

1.) Don’t Listen To Your Heart – Matt Saraca and John Townsend
2.) Burdens Down – Cricket Blue
3.) Magnolias – Troy Millette Music
4.) Something That’s Never Been Done Before – Jason Baker

That’s such a fun song from Jason. Troy writes and sings some beautiful songs and that is one of them. That’s the last song from Cricket’s amazing album Serotinalia. I’ll have to find a new album to being playing next week. Your heart represents your emotional side and it’s best to be sure it’s in a good place before using it to make major decisions. OK, I’ve got a real treat for you. Let’s head over to Robot Dog Studio.

5.) The Laundry Song – Bethany Conner Music
6.) I Miss You – Bethany Conner
7.) Manhattan – Bethany Conner
8.) Clearer – Bethany Conner

I really want to thank Bethany for singing and playing those lovely songs. Thanks Greg Conner for helping out and huge thanks to Ryan Cohen for hosting, recording, mixing and filming the show. OK, let’s keep on rocking.

9.) Someone Get Me A Brown Paper Bag – Jesse Taylor Band
10.) Pass Me Not, O Gentle Savior – Hallowell
11.) Repetition – All The Time Always
12.) Sunny Skies – Be•er

It’s summer and that song seems so appropriate. Always are coming to town and playing a show at Light Club Lamp Shop tomorrow, so stop by if you like that song. That’s a pretty catchy song from one of our local ministers. Lovely song about life from Jesse. OK, this next band just released an album called This Day In Age. I played a couple of songs last week and here’s another.

13.) He Is Risen And Appears On Toast – Sad Turtle
14.) Makarov – James and the Giant Sleep
15.) Bacalao Con Pan – Mal Maïz
16.) Energy – The Steph Pappas Experience

That’s such a cool song from Steph. That one from Maiz just rocks. I haven’t played Sleep for a while and wanted to pull it out again. Turtle are so amazing. OK, let’s keep rocking.

17.) Teenage Mother Earth – The Red Telephone
18.) Forgiveness Is For The Weekend – Humble Hero
19.) All I Want – The Silent Mile
20.) Rising On->Bridge Out – Blowtorch

That’s a couple of fun rockers from Blowtorch. I wanted to pull out the new Silent Mile song again. I hope you liked it. Hero just released a new EP called The Harper Sessions and that is one of the songs. That’s such a classic from Telephone. OK, this next band are from Boston but have a cool local connection.

21.) Robotrippin’ – Death Pesos
22.) Bitchcraft – Jessica Rabbit Syndrome
23.) Inept Tune – The Wet Ones
24.) Dragonfly – Barbacoa

It”s summer and dragonflies are everywhere. So, Amy Wild plays in Wet and Rabbit with Ali Evans and Pete Schluter, and Pete also plays in Pesos, so I thought that would be a fun set. OK, you can likely find this next band at a Vermont library near you.

25.) Hope In The Dark – David Rosane & The Zookeepers
26.) This Ain’t No Love Song – The Red Newts
27.) Gone Gone Gone – Radio Underground
28.) Can The Call Go Through? – Seth Yacovone Band

I thought that would be a great way to rock the show to a close. That is a live from Robot Dog Studio version of the Radio Underground song. If you like it, you can get it, and the other three songs from that session, on Bandcamp now. That’s a brand new song from the Newts. It looks like they are releasing songs one at a time. New one next week? It’s so great that the Zookeepers are helping and highlighting our local libraries. Well, I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?
