Song before: Lawyers, Guns and Money – Warren Zevon

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. The crocuses are out and I saw a daffodil yesterday Beansie’s Bus is open so Spring is in the air. Let’s begin with an artist who will release a new EP soon.

1.) Leonard – Jeremy Gilchrist – Singer-Songwriter
2.) Pope Francis – Bison
3.) Try And Try And Try – The Snaz
4.) Little Girl – Kelly Ravin Music

Kelly recently put out an album called Engine that is so good I will have to play it all the way through, song after song, week after week. That’s the first song and I hope you enjoyed it. I miss the Snaz. Thanks for sending me your new EP Bison! Great song from Jeremy about Mr Cohen. OK, let’s head on over to Robot Dog Studio and rock out.

5.) The Other Iron Sheik – Doom Service
6.) Miner Forty-Niner – Doom Service
7.) Monsters Are Due On Maple Street – Doom Service
8.) Jurassic Bark – Doom Service

I want to thank Ryan Cohen for making us sound so great and Doom Service for rocking so hard. OK, let’s keep rocking.

9.) The Space Between – The Nancy Druids
10.) Signal Loss – Zeus Springsteen
11.) Lean In – When Particles Collide
12.) Projector – Vetica

I miss Vetica. Particles could be anywhere in the country, even Vermont. Zeus will be at The Monkey House on Saturday. Great song from the Druids. So, Luke Adam from Vetica, has a new band. Let’s check them out.

13.) Partial Recall – Secret Family
14.) The Next Day – Chazy Lake
15.) Give It Up To The Night – Bad Smell
16.) Sequoia 3 – Binger

That’s such a great song from Binger. Raph Worrick and Jane Boxall Percussion started Smell after a Rock Lotto performance a few years ago. Girls Rock Vermont is sponsoring another one on Saturday with the bands who get created in the morning and perform later in the night at Light Club Lamp Shop. A couple of friends recommended Chazy and I like what I hear. Great stuff from Luke’s new band. OK, let’s trip out for a while with a band who are at SideBar tonight.

17.) Four Song Jam – The Dead Shakers

That was so much fun. Thanks everyone! OK, Let’s keep rocking.

18.) It’s Purple And It Sparkles – Zola Turn
19.) Junior – Clever Girls
20.) Before The Evenings Thru – THE VACANT LOTS
21.) Empress Of Ireland – Thompson Gunner

That was recorded at Nectar’s a few years back. I’m still reeling from that Lots show a couple of weeks ago. Great new song from Clever and great classic from Zola. Well, I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

I had a great time seeing music a week ago Friday at Foam Brewers. I took the lovely walk downtown and got in and settled. Montreal band le vaisseau d’or.began the night with tuning that tuned into warm flowing music. The pace settled into an instrumental that reminded me of Roger Waters. They followed with a country rock based dreamy pop song about blessings that felt a bit like Blue Rodeo. While the whole show had hints of other bands, their sound was their own. They sang a song about being In My Life and a plodding drone about wanting you to love. A song about whatever had sweet backing vocals and a song about something gospel had a hint of The Church. They stayed with the early Church sound for a song about monkeys and closed with a song asking why does it have to be so. The show was slow and gentle yet had a nice drive. They were wonderful.

Up next Bison took the stage and rocked hard. The music had a surging pulse and a punk sound. The packed room danced hard with great joy. They sang about how you have everything and about watching what you say. They played a song that started slow and picked up with a sledgehammer bass and had a lot of oooos. They played a song with a ska feel and one with a heavy riff about a lost cause. A song about dirty bars had everyone dancing a little harder. They ended the set with a song with a moody intro that reminded me of Signals era Rush and may have been about not wanting to know unless you tell me. I had been curious about Bison for a while and was so happy to finally check them out. Id go see them again in a heartbeat.

It had been ages since I’d seen THE VACANT LOTS and I was super-psyched for the show. Three things jumped at me immediately, Jared Artaud was playing a different guitar than usual, Brian was playing a real drum kit instead of the electronic ones (though he had a keys and samples set up too) and there was no video background. They settled in by waiting for departure then became Never Satisfied. They sang a heavy drone rocker about a place of anger and a place of peace. Brian had a cool keys opener for Mad Mary Jones and the band rocked it hard. They eased up a little on Paint This Town and played a gorgeous version of the song. Jared put down the guitar and picked up a knife and stood menacingly at the front of the stage and sang about all that’s left. They went back to the heavy rock and surged for a couple of songs. They closed the night with another heavy rocker. As it devolved into the ending Jared picked up the knife and began hitting the strings and bridge. The music shreded furiously as the guitar was cut to pieces. The sound coalesced into a wailing moan before being shut down. The Lots always put on a great show but seldom with such fury. I can’t wait to see them again.

I did not stay long then slipped out the door and took the long uphill walk home.
