That’s a cool song form a group of women in Burlington who appreciate eastern European voices. There is snow on the ground, and it’s been snowing a little every day, so it’s time to play that Swale songs. Cool new song from J with Laurel and Francesca Blanchard on backing vocals.

I had a great time seeing music a couple of Saturdays ago. I had one show in mind and saw a couple that lined up nicely with it. I got out of work and had a little time to settle, then took the short walk over to Junktiques Collective. They are an antiques store who have a party every year to celebrate their birthday. They promised lots of music, so I had to stop in.

IMG_1550

The normally cluttered store was mostly empty, except for a myriad of collectables on the wall shelves and ceiling. A group of players were in a circle jamming out some polka music I think they were calling themselves the Junktiques band but they were definitely there to celebrate Brechtoberfest. They sang a song called the giveaway song and said that the band was all about diversity. They played a lot of music that I did not go but seemed like it was from a time long ago. They played with styles a little, and overall had an eastern European Gypsy Mariachi vibe. Phin joined in the fun by juggling for a while. It was a fun set.

Soon after Jason sat at the drums and his son plugged in his guitar. I think they called themselves Pick Shredder and Stick Shredder, They rocked out a couple of surf rock instrumentals that were quite fun. It looks like the next generation of musicians is on its way.

IMG_1551

Since it was his party, Phin took center stage and recited the poem The Devil And Billy Markham. A guitar player thew in a few quiet licks and the whole presentation was fun.

Soon after that, my watch said it was time to go and I took the shorter than usual walk down to Light Club Lamp Shop. I got in and settled and Milton Busker And The Grim Work began their album release show. With a lush acoustic rock sound they find notes that just bring you up into a happy place. I settled into the show with a smile. They opened with The Basement Song then rocked out Glad To See You Go. They shone beauty into the room with That Person Aside You then spoke about the result of working too much on Baby Let My Money Keep You Warm. The next song was a bit of a Lost Cause then they sang about Jesus In Chains. They sang about letting you down then added some extra weight with 16 Tons Of Gold and Gravity. They bopped their way through Let’s then let loose the gorgeous new song about stars. They sang don’t let me down then ripped out a super-fast Eleanor Rigby. They sang about the Devil’s Hand then played a cool cover I did not know. Ordinary Day started and ended as Milton solo, but the band ripped up the late middle section. They played a song for the internet, then told us about all of the things they have done. We clapped as they stomped and sang there is nothing we can’t do. That was going to end the show but the large audience demanded another. They sang a cool song about dark matter and called it a night.

I headed out quick and took the long walk over to Radio Bean. Jesse Taylor was on and rocking with her band. They had a slow bluesy inviting pop sound. I caught four songs and really enjoyed them. The last was a rocker called Hey You that is pretty cool. I’ll have to check the band out again soon.

I had to work in the morning so I headed towards home, but had to take one more musical chance. I wandered back to Junktiques and made my way into the packed room. Barbacoa were on and rocking hard. Everyone was dancing and having a great time. Phin even danced on his counter. The band were in middle of the instrumental jam that fell into Secret Agent Man and their dark surf sound was wonderful. They finished up then dove into Love Potion #9. They mixed up their trademark instrumentals with originals with words such as the fun version of Dragonfly. They tossed in classics like Stepping Stone, Country Roads, and I Wanna Be Sedated. Everyone was having a great time and it was a fantastic rock and roll vibe. I caught about 10 songs before they called it a night.

I headed out quickly and took the short walk home. It was another incredible night of music in our town.

Loida & Lenahan picture by Tim Lewis

I had a great time seeing music around Burlington a couple of Saturdays ago. My friend Lisa Lavigne Tejeda was back in Vermont for the day and we made plans to meet up. She wanted to go see some music, and it was a day full of possibilities. In the last few weeks, since I do a local music radio show every Thursday and write about music a lot, several bands have contacted me about their shows in town. Three of them were playing that night.

I worked until 5, had a bit of time to hang out then headed to Light Club Lamp Shop. Loida & Lenahan were on stage and sounded enchanting as I tiptoed into the room and quietly ordered a drink. With keys and vibraphone the instrumental duo had a nice flow to their music. Julian Loida left the stage and Kelly Lenahan played a beautiful song on keys. She left after that one and Julian played a little Bach for Bachtober. He followed with a song in the style of synesthesia called Easter Trance that was magical. Kelly returned after that and they closed with a song lead by sweet keys over a quiet drone that may be called You’ll Be Missed. They were really good.

IMG_1042

Serena Jost pic by Tim Lewis

I took the long walk over to Radio Bean and ran into Lisa and Abraham. We hung out as Serena Jost took the stage with her cello and began to sing. I think the first song was It’s A Delight, since it sounded familiar. Either way, it was really cool. Her songs had a nice strength to them as she continued on and looked for a shooting star. She sang about being in the garden then played a Molly Drake cover called Happiness. She switched to guitar and brought up Dan Macklin (sp?) to help her sing the next one. I think it was about mysteries and walking in open doors.

IMG_1049

Tim Swanson, Julia Beerworth and Josh Glass pic by Tim Lewis

We took off after that song and headed to Juniper at Hotel Vermont. Josh Glass and Julia Beerworth were joined by Tim Swanson on fiddle, and they played some gently beautiful songs. They played a song about how you may see me tomorrow then one that went by in the blink of an eye. A cover of Dylan’s One More Cup Of Coffee had a nice dark edge then they played a Julia song about taking he dog for one last drive before putting it down. They played a great version of Josh’s song New York My Lovely then they played another Dylan cover that I think was Tomorrow Is A Long Time. They played another sweet Julia song called Wonder then Tim sang a song about Cassie. Josh sang a nice cover of Blackbird and they closed the set with Neil Young’s Helpless and the end section of LayLa. The whole set was very nice.

IMG_1066

Barbacoa pic by Tim Lewis

We zipped out the door and headed back to the Bean and kicked it up a notch as Barbacoa were on stage ripping it up. Kirk Flanagan drove the bass hard, Bobby Hackney Jr. drove the drums hard and Bill Mullins effortlessly let loose stinging guitar chords and sang some fun songs. They were playing a ferocious surf rock jam as we settled in. They followed with a cool version of Dragonfly and followed that with Mighty Have Fallen. I think they said that was the first time Bobby ever played it and he made it sound great, since he is so amazing. They went back to the surfing for a Sergio Leone sounding song with a whip snap ending. They tossed in a fun version of Love Potion #9 then played a song about when I rule the world. They played another great instrumental then pulled out Sweet Child O’ Mine. Someone yelled pulp fiction and they launched into Misirlou. They played it into If I Was A Rich Man then a full version of I Wanna Be Sedated, then brought it back to Dick Dale. They kept the uncommon sting of covers coming with You’re So Vain and Country Roads. They played a couple more cool songs and called it a night. It’s always a great time when they play.

Lisa and Abraham left at one point, but I hung out and soon it was time for Freak Dream. With an intense swirling visual background, the electronic rocking duo played a fierce show. The songs had a power and freakishness and I really enjoyed their set. They wrapped the night with a song about getting out and I left shortly after the final note.

What a great night of music in our town.

Andriana Chobot

I had a great time seeing music last Friday at the South End Art Hop, ArtsRiot, and Red Square. Every year, artists have a weekend to show how amazing they are and fill the South End of Burlington with art. There are tons of galleries with paintings, sculpture, and other creative endeavors. There are lots of bands playing around and it’s always a good time. This year, I looked and did not see much music listed. The one show that caught my eye was Clever Girls at 8 with Rough Francis to follow.

I had a relaxing day off and was focused on the show, when I looked at 7 Days and saw a cool show listed at 4pm. I was a little slow out the door and walked into Red Square about 4:15. Andriana Chobot was onstage singing and playing keys and Cody Sargent played drums. He added a nice rhythm to the songs and his cymbal work was lovely. Andriana has a gorgeous powerful voice and plays keys in a way that keeps my heart rising. She sang about manifest destiny and dropped in a cover of Regina Spektor’s Ode To Divorce. My Old House had some nice keyboard flourishes and Another Day was magical. She sang about Galaxy Eyes and Coffee then said all she wanted is a bit of your heartbeat. She sang about how winter is coming then took a short set break. They returned with a song about The Cure then continued with a playful song about see saws. Dig Him rocked, Cascade soared then we took a ride into the wilds of Vermont. She sang a Carole King inspired song about changing my mind then dropped a cool cover of Ain’t No Sunshine. Neon had an appropriately dark glow and Not I melted my heart. They kept driving on then closed the set with Alone In The Night. Wow, I had not made it to Art Hop yet and had already heard 19 great songs.

 

IMG_0542

The Ramparts

I left quickly and walked south. I caught a couple of songs by a band in a parking lot that may have been The Ramparts. They sounded cool but said there was music happening at the Green Door, and that is always one of the best Art Hop shows. I ran into Charlie Messing and we headed to a nearby gallery filled with rooms and lovely works of art. We ran into Frank DeAngelis and I was dazzled by his work. We then headed over to the space up behind ArtsRiot but no one was on. Danny LeFrancois said The Parts would be playing later but the timing conflicted with my primary objective. Oh well. Charlie wandered off and I remembered a building on the corner of Pine and Howard that seemed to have a lot of galleries. I walked up stairs and through doors and each one had more and more fantastic paintings. I followed hallways and found cool little rooms, I followed corridors and found more rooms full of art. I took one turn and found a room where music was about to be played. It was close to 8 but I had to hang and check some of it out. A dark video began and Ouzkxqlzn began to play. I grabbed a seat in awe as she worked the wrench over the guitar. I love the sounds she finds and weaves into a spell. About 10 of 8 I ripped myself away and went in search of Clever Girls. They were setting up and Diane Jean said they would go on around 8:30. I raced back to the building and back through the maze and somehow found the show room again then settled in for the end of Lauren’s set. I hung out as Adrienne Cooper Smith spoke about the mixture of the video she made and the sound of the music. A band got up to play and I think they did their own improvisation to the same video. I’m guessing Adrienne did the same at some point on her electric banjo. I’ve just got to figure out how to be in two, or more, places at once.

IMG_0546

Ouzkxqlzn

I listened to the bands cool sound for a bit then headed back to Speaking Volumes and ran into Peg Tassey. We chatted a bit with Dan Davine, then Clever Girls began to play. They opened with a hard hitting blues rock jam then dropped it into Catch And Release. Dumb Smile was pretty intense for a slower song then Diane screamed out the 1 2 3 4 opening to Loose Tooth. They sang about tilting your head back and waiting for this to pass, playing hide and seek, and rocked Junior nice and hard. Loom was heavy and powerful and Hannah Wants To See You soared. The closed with a blistering version of Heavy and we were in a happy place.

IMG_0566

Clever Girls

I ducked out to see what was happening at ArtsRiot. Barbacoa were onstage, so I grabbed a drink and went to the front. They played a surf rock instrumental western then dropped a cool Paint It Black. They played a song with lyrics about how you are my dreamy girl then rocked out Love Takes It’s Toll On Me. They surfed through Venus In Spurs and my internal alarm went off and I headed back to SV.

IMG_0578

Barbacoa

I ran into Charlie again and chatted with a bit then the next band were about to hit. I almost made it past the merch table clean, but caught the edge of the cloth and sent a couple of things flying. I turned to help but Nicole Hackney was already on it. Sorry about that. Thanks for cleaning up my klutziness. I found a spot near Matthew Kloss and ROUGH FRANCIS began to play. They opened hard with I-90 East and followed with a song about coming together called Ruffians. They sang about werewolves on MSP2, then lit into Big Box Law Enforcement. A short way in, the power blew out leaving nothing but Urian Hackney‘s drums. Bobby Hackney Jr. had a fun chat with the crowd and quickly, the power came back. They launched back into Box and the power blew again on the first note. It quickly came back, and with an amazing boldness of spirit, they launched into it again. The power stayed on and the show continued. Julian Hackney played some ripping guitar leads, Paul rocked his guitar and danced hard, while Dan stood back and used his bass to anchor the songs. They rocked us with Geese and Pandas then went back to the first album for Home Invasion. They slowed things down with the anti-fascist Walk On By, then rocked out Retrosexual. They kept the fury going with Methmouth then let it fall into a jam. A guy from the audience stepped up a bit and began dancing, maybe break dancing, and delighted the crowd and the band. The jam amped up and they ripped through Earthquake then rocked out Procession 1. They lit into the familiar notes of Comm To Space as we rocked out “in the midnight hour”. They brought it to its thunderous conclusion, and as they were about to ramp up into the ending section, the power blew again. Undaunted, when it quickly returned they quickly ripped out the ending and called it a night. They are always great.

I headed out quickly in search of one more band, but it was after 10 and everything was shutting down. I let the exhaustion of the day wash over me, then took the lovely walk home.

Tonight’s local music radio show on WBKM.ORG will run from 9-11pm US Eastern time Thursday September 13. You can stream it from the website, or here: WBKM It will go as follows.

Song before: Piano Music – Porcupine Tree

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I’ve been enjoying the new album Hardly Electronic from this opening band, so let’s begin with some piano music.

1.) In The Key Of Me – The Essex Green
2.) When The Nights Get Long – Carraway
3.) Cascade – Andriana Chobot
4.) Adventure Safari – The Mountain Carol

It was so cool when Carol came in for a session of Live From Robot Dog Studio and instead of playing the electronic keys, Bruce played Ryan Cohen‘s sweet sounding piano. Great song from Andriana. I caught a couple of sets of her music last Friday at Red Square. She was as amazing as always. Great song and huge build from Carraway and super cool song form Essex. OK, the big event in town this weekend is Grace Potter’s Grand Point North festival. Be sure to get there early. Here are some of the great bands who are opening the show.

5.) Falter – Julia Caesar
6.) Soul No. 5 – Caroline Rose
7.) The Violent Stain Of My Bleeding Heart – Seth Yacovone Band
8.) Flaca Daza – Miku Daza
9.) Loose Tooth – Clever Girls

All of those bands are going to rock GPN hard. Caroline has gotten big but spent a lot of time in town. I’m so excited for both days and will be there early. I saw Clever Girls play a brilliant show last weekend at Art Hop. This next band came on after and played a blistering show. Last week, I played the last song on The Uncanny Doom Service, so let’s begin playing MSP3 Counter Attack, song after song, week after week, until it’s wrapped up.

10.) Big Box Law Enforcement – ROUGH FRANCIS
11.) Still Life Scene – Envy
12.) Whirlpool Rider – The High Breaks
13.) Mighty Have Fallen – Barbacoa

They played a brilliant show at Robot Dog Studio last week and that song really caught me. Cool new song from the Breaks. Classic from Envy. Great song from Francis who use the new album to stare racism in the face and offer peace and love as a counter attack. This song has been running through my head lately, so hopefully it will get stuck in your too.

14.) Automatic Sweetheart – Hammydown
15.) On My Way – Hover
16.) Veratrum – Piqued
17.) Fool That I Am – Eastern Mountain Time

Cool song from a band who have lots of shows scheduled all around Vermont. I wanted to revisit the song from Piqued, since it’s so cool. I hope they stop by town soon. Classic from the ’90’s from Hover. Great song from Hammy. OK, this next artist has put out a few cool albums but when he plays with his band he sounds just a little different. Here’s a song form his upcoming album.

18.) Gravity – Milton Busker & The Grim Work
19.) Loser – SWALE
20.) Underheard – Ivamae
21.) Silent River – Steady Betty

Betty’s songs always put me in a happy place. I hope it does the same for you. Great song from Ivamae. When I think of happy songs with depressing lyrics, I think of Swale. I think Milton is proving himself just as able. OK, last night I finally caught up with this singer in a movie theater at The Double E. This song digs into the pros and cons of life in America in a visceral way. The song after is the story of a kid asking mom why she would bring a child into this world. I think you’ll like the answer.

22.) Which America – Jason Baker
23.) Love – Hana Zara
24.) The Divine Feminine – Ouzkxqlzn
25.) Super Powers – The Dead Shakers

I love that song from the Shakers. I caught Lauren Costello playing at Art Hop, and despite calling her band an unpronounceable name, she is completely amazing. Hana asks mom why she was brought into the world. Mom says to fill you with love and to send you into the world to spread it. Great, if somewhat harsh, song form Jason. OK, he finished this year’s library tour, but has begun to book next years. What a cool way to support Vermont’s libraries.

27.) This City – David Rosane & The Zookeepers
28.) Give It Up To The Night – Bad Smell
29.) Infinity Pools – The Smittens
30.) Ghosts – Troy Millette Music
31.) Rainy Alley – Totally Submerged

Wishing the best for the people in the Carolina’s. Cool song from Submerged. Great song from Troy. I’m loving the new Smittens album City Rock Dove and expect to keep diving deeper. Super cool song from Smell and great song from David. Well, I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

1.) Little Fires – Hana Zara
2.) Dark And Stormy Seas – The High Breaks

12.) Good Old Days – Screaming Broccoli
