I had a great time seeing music last weekend on Burlington’s waterfront. I worked from 9-1 on Saturday, then had a little time at home to get ready. I was a little slow to get out the door and head down to Grand Point North. I arrived around 3:10 for the show that had doors at 3 and the first band on at 3:15. The timing was as tight as I thought it might be and I got into the venue at the end of Nina’s Brew‘s second song. I headed up front and began to listen. They played as a two guitars, bass, drums, keys band and jammed out some rock and roll. They sang about how life is a roller coaster and how you got to know my name. That one had a cool opening from the keyboard player and some nice vocal work at the end. They closed the set with one about a little bit, or let’s roll, or something. The set featured a sweet lead guitar, sweet keys, sweet vocals and were a fun rocking time.

Immediately after their set ended, we shifted to the stage on the right and Miku Daza hit it hard. Joined by Sugar the Clown for the opening song, they began as a guitar, bass, drums trio. They played fast and hard on the opener Parasite. About half way into the song, Sugar wandered into the audience and Jonathan Tollefson appeared with his surging Baritone Saxophone. They followed with Flaca Daza and Chris Tranten and Will Bennington laid down super heavy rhythms on bass and drums. Miku’s guitar surged and her vocals effortlessly flowed from a whisper to a scream. Her rainbow colored wings were wonderful all the way through the show. Their powerhouse gypsy punk sound was pure joy. Even through I was close to the stage, the volume was lower than ideal. I moved a bit to the right to catch more of the speaker, but likely should have moved a bit to the left to catch more of the center one. Oh well. They kept the music at full fury for one about a heavy load where you have the power and one about giving me everything I need. Panic was fun, as was the one like fire. Sugar Rush got us a little high then they sang about dressing in black. They closed as hard as they opened with a song about how you don’t make it easy, so I’m gonna make it hard. Their set was pure rocking joy.

We shifted to stage left as West End Blend began to jam. They had a funky soulful sound punctuated by lots of horns. They opened with a song about the prophecy then got into a long cool jam. They switched to a more jazzy sound for one about having to fight to make it right. They moved back to funk for one about telling me what to do. It had a fun get down, it’s getting me down, breakdown in the middle. They closed with a song about how we’re gonna try that had a nice keys lead section and was driven by the horns. They were pretty cool.

The action moved to the right and Clever Girls opened with a bluesy rock jam. They let it drop into a gorgeous version of Catch And Release and we were off. Sometimes they play with full rock fury and sometimes they are a little more gentle and precise. This show was the latter and it showcased their songwriting talent. Dumb Smile was a delight as Rob Slater and Tobias Sullivan kept a tight rocking groove on drums and bass. Diane Jean yelled out 1 2 3 4 as the band lit into Loose Tooth. Her guitar gave it a nice rock feel. They played a cool new song about tilting your head back, then followed with the delightfully gloomy Loom. Another new one about walking in circles had a swampy sound. A little way into the song, the energy picked up and they got closer to the full power that they can release. Hannah Wants to see you was gorgeous and Diane’s voice soared then they dropped it into Heavy. The song surged to full power and they let loose their full fury. Winfield Holt‘s guitar surged to glorious rock heights as they locked into that groove and worked it hard. I loved every moment of that ripping guitar, and they set a standard that would not be overcome for the rest of the night. What a great set!

On stage left Darlingside played with strings, voices, and a kick drum. They had a nice sound and were great at chatting with the audience, especially on the introductions for the band members. They sang about history books and Back To The Future Part 2. They asked is it today or tomorrow and sang about a superconductor up in the sky. They sang a song for the cowboys that kind of rocked a little and had a nice lead before slipping back into their usual gentle happy sound. They sang a song about how mother died young and their sound delighted the crowd for their whole set. I liked them but was still a bit wound up from the set before.

The steadily growing crowd moved left as Mt Joy opened with a solid rock sound. They let it slide into a mellow jam singing from side to side and changing your mind. They sang about smoking cigarettes on rooftops and red lights. They asked if we realized that everyone we know someday will die and rocked a bit in the middle. Their music had a nice flow as they urged us to show up and vote in a song about the red, white, and the blue. They lit into a fun song and dropped a bit of Ain’t No Sunshine into the middle. They closed with a song about being on the mountain that rocked a bit and was quite nice.

The festival was pretty packed when Ani DiFranco took the stage. Her band had a jazzy sound that created plenty of space for her words and lyrics to stand out. She opened with a song about not being shy and followed with one about being taken out of context. She sang a poem about democracy that she sent out to her fellow voters. Since it was a festival with non-stop music, I got to a point where I needed to wander around and get a drink. It’s unfortunate that it hit during Ani’s set, since she was so cool and great. I hoped there would be speakers in the vending area so I could still listen in, but that was not the case. I made it back just as her set ended. I wish I had planned a little better, but with nine bands over 8 hours, it’s a bit overwhelming.

I got back in and settled. The sun had set and Jackson Browne took the stage and was joined by Greg Leisz. They both played guitar for most of the set through Greg played some sweet pedal steel now and then. They mostly avoided the big hit songs in favor of more poignant obscure ones. Even the cover of a Band song was not well known. He sang a song for migrant workers and spoke about a program that teaches children of immigrants their historic culture when they would have otherwise not have known about it. They brought out Ariel Zevon for a song called Cold Hearted Empath. Something in that song stuck a chord with me and I was elated for every note. She left and they continued on with quiet songs including Late For The Sky. He moved to piano for a grand version of The Pretended which got the crowd going a bit then slowed it back down. Late in the set the opening notes of Take It Easy sent a bolt of energy through the crowd, who proceeded to sing it word for word in full festival gusto. They closed with another quiet one and called it a night.

Stage left lit up and Bernie Sanders walked on. He spoke about how proud he was of all that Grace has accomplished and urged us to vote. Grace appeared, then her band followed, and they rocked out a song about medicine. I have not kept up with her music, so I did not know most of the songs that she played. They all sounded cool and rocked nicely. The crowd was massive and I wandered around a bit and could hear well from most any place where you could see the stage. I found place to sit and stare at the lake and listened to song after song. I was pretty exhausted from being in the sun all day, and from listening so closely for so many hours. I headed towards the main gates then found a tree to prop me up. They brought out a special guest and Kenny Chesney delighted the audience with You And Tequila. Late in the set Grace began the opening strains of Nothing But The Water and it perked me up. Part 1 was cool and featured her doing some nice guitar work. The rest of the band came back out and they rocked part 2 hard. They played a couple more and called it a night. They quickly returned for the encore and began Angel From Montgomery. A little way in, Jackson Browne came out and sang it with her. He then took a seat at his keys and the audience exploded as they began Dr My Eyes. He moved to guitar and the band launched into Lawyers, Guns and Money, which kept the audience at full fervor. They closed the set with a long jammed our Running On Empty which featured Chesney on some of the vocals and Grace on keys. It was glorious.

The lights came on and we slowly walked down the path. I headed up the hill and took the lovely walk home. I was exhausted and elated and prepared to do it again tomorrow

I had Sunday off and learned my lesson from missing the first two songs on Saturday. I got going earlier and arrived at the waterfront about 1:50 for the show that had gates at 2 and first band at 2:15. Around 2:05 our line started moving and at 2:10 I was inside the gates. I got a beer, moved to stage left, and Julia Caesar began to weave their magical spell. They opened with Hear Me Now and their beautiful vocal harmonies lead into the song that takes many fun twists and turns. The second song was one about how someone told a girl that she takes up too much space. It opened quietly then began to rock. They found a happy groove for Chosen Names then played a new song called Demons. It’s a triple threat song with a vocal round to open, and fun audience clap-along part and a sing-along part that goes we’re dying alone. It’s such a fun song. They played the song that ends saying let it be without a sound, and the ferry boat hit its horn precisely on the last note. They rocked out a long fun version of Falter and let it end in a feedback haze. It was a brilliant set.

The music began immediately on stage right, so we all moved over as JUPTRband filled the air with their cool smooth synth pop sound. I’m not one for fashion, but I’ve got to say that Stephanie Heaghney’s shoes were every bit as dazzling as Miku Daza’s wings the day before. Juptr continued on with a late night jazzy soul sound that featured some nice keyboard flourishes. Their music evoked a late night cozy bar feeling but worked well in the blazing sunshine. They played a song about Jupiter being true then one that made us happy happy. That one got a bit trancey and I lost myself in it for a while. They brought up three dancers for a slow cool funky song about fighting for your life then called it an afternoon. They were really good. I need to check them out again soon.

We all moved left and Harsh Armadillo began with something that reminded me of Golgi Apparatus. They let it slip into a big band soul jazz sound and we were off. They played a song about how nothing can come between us that had a ripping lead guitar part. They played a song about sweet sweet love that had a nice slow keys lead section in the middle. They played a song with a Zappa jazz sound and closed with a rich soul jazz sound on a song about how all I have is a bit of sunshine. They were fun.

 

IMG_0775

We moved to the right and Seth Yacovone Band opened with some hard rock blues on a song about demons. Seth let loosed a staggering lead break that elicited great joy from the audience. They stayed bluesy for a song that asked what will I do when you’re gone. They could barely contain themselves on a song from the upcoming album Welcome then played one about how we are all waiting. Mr Reed began by rocking hard then they kicked it up a notch for the second verse. By the time they hit the third one they brought it to a staggering height of rock and roll glory, then ripped out the ending. I was sure that would be the most intense part of the day.

Music began immediately on stage left as Sister Sparrow began to play. They had a soulful rock sound with strong vocals and a couple of horns. They sounded nice but I was still riding the heights of the band before. A song about not being jealous had a funky opening and rocked a bit at the end. They played a new song called Ghost then a new song called Gold. They treated us with their take on Aretha Franklin’s version of Bridge Over Troubled Water then ended the set with a Grateful Dead like jam.

With stage right covered in red boas, Elmo, and an inflatable unicorn head, Caroline Rose and her band took the stage as some girls like boys intro music played. They opened with a song about how the world is breaking down and followed with one about how everybody wants you. They played Caroline’s favorite song which was more of the same. They played a new one about giving it more time then played her favorite song about how Jeannie becomes a mom. It was sunny and hot and she said it would be their last show as they were melting on stage. Soul No. 5 lit up the crowd then they told us they were doing it for the money. Caroline spoke about the hippy cocktails served backstage that were made from kombucha and vodka, which begged the question, why were those not being sold at the concession stands? She grabbed a pipe and played a little of the Titanic theme and Abbie Morin tossed in some vocals. It did not last long, then Caroline kept up her charming witty banter that lead into the song about the little bikini dance dance dance. They closed the super-fun set with her favorite song about how I’m ready now. Every moment of the show was just great.

A huge rock sound began on stage left and we all moved over as The Magpie Salute sang about a back door. It was as if they picked up with the intensity of the end of Mr Reed and drove the power up and up. Mark had a staggering lead break and it was immediately obvious that the show would be like the best of the Black Crowes show, but with a different singer. They launched into a song about Mary the gypsy and i hit that moment where I needed to get another beer. I walked quickly and missed the next song but was back for the one about walking on water. I reveled in the huge sound as they sang about those things they said about you. It featured some sweet slide from Rich and was just wonderful. They kept the rock fury going for a wicked version of Custard Pie then lit up the audience with the Crowes Morning Song. They were going to close with a song about telling me something good about yourself then noticed they had more time. After a quick huddle, the hit us hard with Wiser Time to close the show. I was stunned in the best way possible.

By now the audience was huge and filled the area in front of stage right as Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats began to play. They opened with a blues rock jam that fell into a song with some yea yea yea vocals. They played a song about one time, two times, three times that had a solid rock vibe. I was still reeling from Magpie’s set, and it did not really grab me, but the audience loved them. I hung out for much of their very long set, but was pretty exhausted, then realized it was time to go.

I took the lovely walk home with a perfect mix of being tired and happy. I heard later that Nathaniel joined Grace Potter for I Shall Be Released and she closed her set with Jackson Browne playing Running On Empty again.

All in all, it was a great weekend.

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?

outro

Songs after
Internal Exile/Market Square Heroes – Fish
Daredevil – The Tragically Hip
Sea Of Red – Judas Priest
Time For Bedlam – Deep Purple
Who Are These Gods? – Dam Kat
A Saucerful Of Secrets – Pink Floyd
Watcher Of The Skies – Genesis
ME 262 (live) – Blue Oyster Cult
Heavy – Clever Girls
Tantalized – The Church
King Of the Mountain – Kate Bush
Get Me Outta Here – Deep Purple
regular awesome programming.

I had a great time seeing music a week ago on Main St and at Nectar’s. Madaila threw a giant party and shut down Main St and put up a stage and somehow booked it on a lovely sunny rain free Saturday. I was able to make it downtown by 4 and had never caught up with Caroline Rose so I was excited to hear her play. I got in and settled and She began singing and playing guitar and was joined by a drummer and two keyboard players, one of whom was Abbie Gail from Hammydown. Most of the songs had a dancey rock feel and may have fit in well on the soundtrack to Kill Bill. I let the first couple of songs wash over me as the keyboard players picked up bass and guitar for the second one. The bass played mostly stayed on bass but Abbie switched between guitar and keys all through the show. I think Caroline’s whole set was made of new songs and was different from what I was expecting and sounded wonderful. She sang songs about more of the same thing living in America. She said most of her songs were sad songs with happy melodies except for the fourth one which was a happy song about being cat called. She sang a song about the waitress setting the table. She sang about Jean becoming a mom and it was her favorite song to sing. She followed with her real favorite song to sing which was something about putting on his bikini and dancing dancing dancing. She continued playing her favorite songs to sing during the greatest hits section of the show from the album that has not been released yet. One had a Bossa Nova beat and one was about how everybody knows there ain’t nothing you can do about it. She sang about doing it for the money and played a slow rocker about having had enough. She was going to leave but an encore was demanded and she played a fast rocker about going deep deep down. It was a great show and I’m so glad I went.

I had to meet up with Christopher Larrow who was coming over from New York for the later show but hung around for a couple of songs by Turkuaz. They had a big band heavy disco punk sound with dreamy keys. The first song may have been something like turn you and the second was about circles in my mind. They weren’t quite my cup of tea but they were really good and lit up the audience.

I walked home, met up with Chris and hung out for a bit, then we headed to Nectar’s for the after party. SWALE began the night with a nice groove on All Down Tonight and rocked it hard by the end. They kept at full throttle for Popular Crowd then encouraged us to Release Our Records. I missed the title of the next one but loved it completely. They eased up a little for Beaten Down and built the energy back up with a searing Soul Piggy Bank. Drug Laws laid into a heavy groove and rocked the house hard. Elevator was poppy but so strong that it worked perfectly. Felon was lovely and powerful. They began the slow build and heavily rocked out Every Last One Of Us and kept rocking on Everyone Likes To. They closed with the fantastic If You Get Lost and everyone was in a happy place.

Up next New York band Wild Adriatic took the stage for a Zeppelin set. They opened with a bluesy jam that settled into Good Times Band Times. They let it flow into Communication Breakdown then let that flow into Immigration Song. Their playing and singing was sweet but when they brought up Nicole from Nico Suave she elevated Black Dog to a magnificent place. She left and the band rocked out Trampled Under Foot. They both eased up and rocked harder on No Quarter. The Ocean had that fun bounce and they mixed it into a snippet of Moby Dick. The drum solo was quite short then they jammed out a little more Moby. Heartbreaker rocked hard then they kept the crowd fired up with Ramble On. In the middle of the song Mikey from Turkuaz moved in and took over the drums without either drummer missing a beat in the transition. They said they were going to do something odd and played a bluesy song about 40 days and 40 nights and put a full War Pigs in the middle. What a night.

Chris took off at that point, and I was pretty tired too but there was no way I could miss the next band. ROUGH FRANCIS hit the stage hard with a couple of their newer songs that I’m getting to know and completely love. MSP2 was great and rocked hard as did the next new one. I-90 East is a classic and is super strong. They sang a song about getting it together and coming together and telling your sister and telling your brother. They encouraged us to not look back then played a heavy version of Staring Out The Window. They sang about getting out and at some point Paul threw himself off the stage and rocked hard in the audience. They played a slower song about fascists who think their haircuts make them cute and how we should walk on by. Not A Nice Guy was blisteringly fast and hard and they played the song about every day. They wrapped the 16 song set with an over the top Comm To Space and finished up at 1:48 am.

I hung out for a bit then took the long tired and lovely walk home.

Thanks for the pics Luke Awtry Photography

Tonight’s local music radio show on WBKM will run from 9-11pm US Eastern time Thursday September 7th. It can be streamed from the Facebook page link above or at WBKM.ORG and will go as follows,

Song before: Immigrant Song – Led Zeppelin

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. There was lots of great music in town last week and a staggering amount this week. Let’s begin with a band who blew me away the one time I saw them. They are in town tonight at ArtsRiot.

1.) The World Is A Loud Place – Landlady
2.) Favorite Bag – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
3.) Jessie – The Parts
4.) Hurricane – Landlady

I saw Landlady at Signal Kitchen once and was amazed. I’m psyched they are back in town tonight. This weekend is Art Hop in the South End. There are lots of bands playing and there is one amazing show in an alley by the Green Door which is behind ArtsRiot to the right and not far from Howard St. The Parts are one of the many bands playing there. That’s a brand new song from Phil Yates‘ upcoming album. Yea, Landlady. OK, let’s play the next song from Loose Tooth.

5.) Loose Tooth – Clever Girls
6.) Strawberry Blonde – Dino Bravo VT
7.) Nicky Says – Black Rabbit
8.) Bridge To Panda Chaos – Zeus Springsteen

Zeus will be at the Green Door show as will Rabbit and Dino. Great song from Clever. This next band will be at a couple of shows at Art Hop including one at Friends of Jim’s Basement.

9.) 25 Miles Per Hour Blues – Better Things
10.) Voodoo Wave – The High Breaks
11.) America Religious – Caroline Rose
12.) Secret – Madaila

Madaila put on a great show on Saturday when they took over Main St and put up a stage. I caught Caroline’s set at that show and was very impressed. The Breaks are playing Friday at ArtsRiot for the venue’s 4th birthday party with some other bands. This next band are playing Friday by the Green Door too.

13.) Better Than You Think – Eastern Mountain Time
14.) My Heart – Francesca Blanchard
15.) Vermonter – James Kochalka
16.) Cocktail Hour – David L Jarvis

Dave used to play around in the ’90’s and is back in town. He’s working on a new baroque pop band called The New Victorians so it will be cool to see what that sounds like. I think they will play that classic song. Great song from James about what it’s like to be in Vermont and to not be in Vermont. Francesca will be at Hotel Vt this Friday. This next band played the after Madaila show at Nectar’s last Saturday.

17.) All Down Tonight – SWALE
18.) Staring Our The Window – ROUGH FRANCIS
19.) Not In My Name – Dysfunkshun
20.) Burn – Dirty Blondes

The Blondes, and a couple of other bands, will be at the Dysfunkshun reunion show at Higher Ground on Saturday. Francis and Swale put on amazing shows at Nectar’s last Saturday. OK, here’s a classic Burlington rocker.

21.) Bloodboy – Envy
22.) Nightmare On Elm Street – Savage Hen
23.) Mr Reed – Seth Yacovone Band
24.) I Know, Right – The Mountain Says No

I haven’t caught up with Mountain in a while but love it when I do. Great rocker from Seth and the band. It was fun watching Hen put the Nightmare jump rope theme into song form at the Robot Dog Studio session last week. Classic from Envy. OK, there’s not much time left. Let’s end where we began.

25.) The Globe – Landlady
26.) It’ll Be OK – Let’s Whisper
27.) In The Rain – Plan B
28.) Above My Ground – Landlady

I love how hard that song rocks at the end. Classic from B and quite appropriate with all the rain we’ve had lately. Great song from Whisper and another great one from Landlady. Well, I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?
