Swale 016

 

Tonight’s local music radio show will run from 9-11pm US eastern time April 6, 2017. It will go as follows.

Song before: Bobcaygeon – The Tragically Hip

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Let’s begin tonight with a couple of songs about lion taming.

1.) Just Another Day – The Nancy Druids
2.) Lion Tamer – Carraway
3.) Black 17 – The New Siberians
4.) Parking Lot – Villanelles

Villanelles keep playing that song for us. Thanks guys. Great song from Siberians. Considering the line from the Druids song, I just had to follow it with the Carraway. OK, here is the next song on By My Side.

5.) I Do – Kat Wright
6.) Crazy – Clever Girls
7.) Trouble Come No More – Cricket Blue
8.) My Hero, The Enemy – Gregory Douglass

Gregory is coming to Higher Ground on Sunday. Thanks for sponsoring our station HG. Cricket will open that show. Great songs from Clever and Kat. Do you ever travel just for the ride?

9.) Ever Travel – The Red Telephone
10.) Drivin’ All Alone – The Parts
11.) Moving Song – Zola Turn
12.) Wally Rides The Ferry – Zoot Wilson

Great song from the ’80’s. Zola Rocked us in the ’90’s. Telephone rocked us in the 00’s and the Parts are rocking us now. So, if you like punk head to Jim’s basement on Saturday for these next two bands.

13.) Blank Daze – Mr. Doubtfire
14.) Blue Lights – Sink or Swim
15.) Blue Light Shines – Gabrielle Douglas and the Dwellers
16.) Something I Drew – farm

It was fun chatting with Brent Hallenbeck last night about our local music scene. I was on Rocket Shop on Big Heavy World last night to announce that all of my show write-ups, past and future, will be part of BHW. Brent was a great host and we both liked Farm and The Cush. We were sad that Farm went away but happy about how they morphed into The Mountain Says No.

17.) Gazerbeam – The Mountain Says No
18.) Paint It Black – Silver Bridget
19.) Every Last One Of Us – SWALE
20.) The Heart Is King – Pinhead

Pinhead helped open Burlington up to the wide variety of music that exists today. Great song from Swale. I want to send lots of love to Eric Olsen who just lost his mother. Our hearts go out to you Eric!!! Great take on the Stones song by Bridget and great rocker from Mountain. This next band was the first to really turn me on to our local music scene, so many years ago.

21.) Happy New Year – Ninja Custodian
22.) Decide – Dave Jarvis Band
23.) The Original Original – Black Rabbit
24.) Round Sum – Cave Bees

The Bees come out to rock us now and then, and have been doing so for years. Rabbit always put on fun shows. Dave rocked us back in the ’90’s and has a new band called Agent 802. I love Ninja. OK, let’s stay in the past for a bit.

25.) Hold Me Tight – The Decentz
26.) Holly Mae – The Snaz
27.) Bridge To Panda Chaos – Zeus Springsteen
28.) Six Inch Knife – Will
29.) Avalon – Split Tongue Crow

Great song from the Rutland band. They morphed out of Will who played around in the 00’s. I can’t wait to see Zeus again and hear what they are recording. Super cool song from the Snaz and fun rocker from Decentz. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

I’m heading to the Flynn tonight with my brother to see Lyric Theater do Tommy so I had to record tonight’s local music radio show earlier today. It will broadcast on 107.1FM on both sides of the Champlain Valley. You can also stream it from the WBKM Facebook page. It will run from 9-11pm US Eastern Time tonight, November 10, 2016. It will go as follows:

Song before: Anytime – jane siberry

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds of Burlington. I want to begin by thanking Higher Ground for sponsoring our station. They have lots of cool shows happening this week. Well, election night has come and gone and many of us are worried about the results. It was nice to sit down and read so many comments on Facebook today. There are a lot of wonderful smart caring compassionate people in our community who can express positive hopes and dreams of working and being together even though we are worried and uncertain. Your staggering optimism buoys me. Let’s begin with a song about looking towards the positive things in life.

1.) The Light – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band
2.) If You Get Lost – SWALE
3.) Fades To Grey – Aram Bedrosian
4.) Brothers And Sisters – Joe Adler

That is such a huge and gorgeous song. I wanted to play it because we can all use a huge amount of beauty in our world. I want to send that out to my brother Ken. That’s a new song from the staggeringly talented Aram. I played Lost for the same reason I played Brothers. Such a great new song from Kat Wright featuring some fantastic guitar work from Bob Wagner. Here is the next song from Song For My Double.

5.) One On The Skyline – Invisible Homes
6.) Not I – Andriana Chobot
7.) Amazing Journey/Sparks (live at Leeds) – The Who
8.) See Me Feel Me/Listening To You – The Who

Lyric Theater is doing Tommy this weekend so I wanted to play a couple of the lovely Who songs. With Andriana and Marie Claire Johnson in the band, it’s going to be great. Cool song from Homes. Here is a song from when Marie sang and played rock guitar.

9.) Trading Bullets – Fire The Cannons
10.) Two Weeks (’til The End Of The World) – Grand
11.) There’s A Problem – Mr. Doubtfire
12.) Monsters Are Due – Doom Service

Doom and Doubt are playing Saturday at The Monkey House where Doubt will release their new EP. Doubt are also playing tonight at Jim’s Basement with Grand. FTC were so great. I went out to Nectar’s to watch the election results Tuesday and saw all of these bands.

13.) Windigo – Crazyhearse
14.) Old North Ender – James Kochalka
15.) Chuck Berry – Dino Bravo VT
16.) Ornan – Dirty Blondes

Everyone played great sets and rocked hard at the show. Most of those songs were played. Last weekend was the Radio Bean birthday and I saw these bands and many more.

17.) Flight Of The Alligator – Cave Bees
18.) Waiting For You – Swale
19.) Lowdown – Vedora
20.) Old Man – Silver Bridget

Bridget sounded so sweet. Vedora did not play but Caroline Marie fronts them and her solo set sounded kind of like that. Swale and Bees played those songs. Speaking of Birthdays, tomorrow is our birthday at WBKM.ORG and we are throwing a party at Nectar’s. We will have The Joe Moore band, Castle Creek, and Seth Yacovone will play a set of Dylan songs with the band calling themselves The Jokerman. Since many local artists play this song, I think it’s appropriate to play.

21.) One More Cup Of Coffee (Valley Below) – Bob Dylan
22.) Cowgirl In The Sand – Seth Yacovne and friends calling themselves Real Old & Insane Doneky

That was from a previous WBKM birthday party. Seth always rocks so it’s going to be a good time. This next song has been on my mind lately.

23.) Last American Right – The Cush
24.) Last Night – Carraway
25.) Children Of The Stars – Madaila

I’ve been listening to their new album Traces and loving that song. I’m pretty pleased with that new Carraway song too. Hmmm, the Cush. Well, I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we? Farewell.

26.) Sayonara – Black Rabbit

Songs after:
The Gathering – Fish
No Superman – TILT
Who Are These Gods? – Dam Kat
Presence – Satori Bob
I Lost My Marbles – Joshua Glass Music

 

Radio Bean Birthday Party November 5, 2016   Leave a comment

I had a great time seeing music at Radio Bean and Light Club Lamp Shop last Saturday. For their birthday each year the Bean always throws a huge party with tons of bands. The show goes from 8am to 2am with almost every band in town. I usually stop in early, then go to work, then come back in the evening. Last year I took the day off and stopped in several times. This year my work schedule changed and I open on Saturdays and did not think I could be at work at 8:20 after stopping in.

It was a long tricky work day. I got out at 5, stopped quickly at home and arrived at the Bean at 5:30. Joe Adler & The Rangers Of Danger had just finished a Pj Harvey song as I got in and settled. Joe Adler was joined by Dalton Muzzy, Caroline O’Connor, Eric “Regal Segal” Segalstad, AaYa Segalstad. It was a nice version of the Rangers, who always seem to be a slightly different band. I did not know the two songs they played. The one about the wicked witch and the Dead Sea Scrolls sounded familiar and was nicely rocked out. The closer about I’ll go soon featured a hyper distorted frenzied guitar workout from Eric and I was in a happy place.

 

Note from Joe Adler & The Rangers Of DangerAlways a pleasure to see you in the audience Tim! Glad you made it. The second song was an original called Fight or Flight, the final song was a Radiohead deep cut called How Can You Be Sure.”

It was a quick changeover then Brett Hughes and the Honky Tonk played some old school country songs. He played guitar and was joined by a bass player I did not know, Jeremy Frederick on drums, a pedal steel player I did not know and Marie Claire Johnson on vocals. Brett sang most of the songs though Marie took lead on the second one. It’s been far too long since I have heard her sing and she always sounds great. They played three songs, mostly about whiskey, then called it a night. It’s not my favorite genre but they played it so well that I had a great time.

 

 

Swale at Radio Bean November 5, 2016 pic by Tim Lewis

SWALE were up next and came out rocking. I did not know the opening song with the lyric “sound the alarm” that Tyler Bolles sang (Lawn Fire by The Pants per Tyler), but it was pretty cool. The band rocked hard on Jack Sharp then eased off with the lovely Waiting For You. Since they had learned the Paranoid album for a show they played last week, they ended the set with a blistering Fairies Wear Boots. It was great.

 

 

Cave Bees at Radio Bean November 5, 2016 pic by Tim Lewis

Another quick changeover resulted in Cave Bees taking the stage. They rocked as loud and hard and as fast as always. They opened with Sweet Pussy then played the newer song Juliet. Another newer one that I don’t know the title of kept things rocking hard. The song about being saved by rock and roll, I think it might be called Queen City, was brilliant. They closed the set with Flight Of The Alligator and the whole room was rocked.

 

 

Caroline O'Connor at Light Club Lamp Shop November 5, 2016 pic by Tim Lewis

I was not sure who was on left, so I looked at the schedule then immediately ran to the Lamp Shop. Caroline Marie was on stage playing Ritual as I settled in. She created the usual loops with voice and guitar then picked up the sax and blew through the lovely end section. For the next song she set up a backing track with herself on bass and Jane Boxall Percussion on drums and played guitar and sang the gorgeous song Fly. I was elated for every note and that song ended the set.

 

 

Silver Bridget at Light Club Lamp Shop November 5, 2016 pic by Tim Lewis

The next band looked familiar so I did not move. Silver Bridget have a beautiful sound, rock a bit, and play some familiar songs. They feature John Townsend on acoustic guitar and kick drum, Matt Saraca on electric guitar and Johnnie Day Durand on the musical saw. They played great versions of Girl You’ll Be A Woman Soon, Love Me Tender, and caught the full room by surprise when they pulled out Creep. It was short, but magnificent set.

 

 

Tom Banjo at Radio Bean November 5, 2016 pic by Tim Lewis

I popped back over to the Bean and saw one song from Tom Banjo and his Cranky Show. He seems pretty happy and optimistic and it was his visual aid that is cranky. He has a box with a scroll of thin paper with lots of images and a strong light behind it. Lee Anderson stood behind the machine and turned the cranks to load in each image as Tom told a story of a cat getting into lots of adventures, but always coming back. It was fun.

I popped back to the Lamp Shop and Osage Orange were on. They are a trio with a low-fi indie sound and have something compelling about their songs. One song may have said something about they could not stop us from dreaming. They finished with a new song about an arms dealer who falls in love with an herbalist. The constant refrain of I Would Sell My Guns For You was pretty cool.

 

 

Brian Parmalee at Light Club Lamp Shop November 5, 2016 pic by Tim Lewis

I caught a couple of songs from Brian Parmalee. He played keys and set up loops and played bass and sang. It was a nice lush sounding set and I think the last song was called Fetch.

 

 

Steady Betty at Radio Bean November 5, 2016 pic by Tim Lewis

I headed back to the jam packed Bean and found a place to stand in the back and got into the swing of Steady Betty‘s set. Kat Wright and Miriam Bernardo sounded fantastic as always on the lead vocals. Caroline played bass, so I got to see her in thee bands, which is always cool. They opened with Cupid then played the one about anything to stay boy. Linda Bassick took lead vocals for her song about change is coming. Joy In The Morning followed and was divine. They closed with the song about still being in love with you boy. Everyone in the room was dancing and having fun.

At that point the length of the day caught up with me. I headed out and had a lovely walk home. I only saw 10 of the 80 bands who played but had a great time while I was there.

Tonight’s local music radio show on 107.1FM WBKM will go as follows:

Song before: Time Warp – Rocky Horror Picture Show

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds of Burlington. I want to thank Higher Ground for sponsoring our station. I heard the Shellac show was great last night and Dweezil is playing on Sunday so that is cool. It’s just been so lovely around town lately with lots of sunny days lighting up the foliage. It makes me think of this song.

1.) Blue Sky – Black Rabbit
2.) Nightingale – 1881
3.) Good Times – Grand
4.) Last Night – Carraway

Great fun brand new rocking song from Carraway. I can’t wait to hear the rest of the album when it comes out. I just got Grand’s EP and it rocks nicely. 1881 just put out their second EP Camera. The first was called Lights and the third will be Action. Hmmm, Black Rabbit. OK, let’s play the next song from the Invisible Homes album Song For My Double.

5.) The Lie – Invisible Homes
6.) Fa Fa Fanta – WE Are The Asteroid
7.) Desert – Tsu Shi Ma Mi Re
8.) Golden Goose – Cave Bees

Bees played a great version of that one last night at ArtsRiot. They were joined by Tsu and Asteroid. They have been touring together and recorded one of each others songs. Desert is really an Asteroid song and Fa is a Tsu song. I though it would be fun to play those two. Great song by Homes. These next three bands will rock Nectar’s next Tuesday.

9.) Losing Control – Mr. Doubtfire
10.) Monsters Are Due – Doom Service
11.) Getting Laid In New Hampshire – Better Things
12.) Plastic Revolution – Doll Fight

I miss Doll Fight. I’m glad they left us lots of music before breaking up. Nectar’s should be fun next Tuesday!! OK, let’s keep rocking.

13.) Burn – Dirty Blondes
14.) Can’t Feel It – Vetica
15.) Screwball – Screaming Broccoli
16.) Not True – Peg Tassey MUSIC

Peg and Broccoli used to rock our town in the late ’80’s and ’90’s. I love that Vetica song. The Blondes will host a huge party at Nectar’s on election night so come on out if you do not want to be alone. This next song is a Burlington classic.

17.) Small Town Movie – The Cush
18.) Paint With The Sun – Arc Iris
19.) Cascade – Andriana Chobot
20.) Vicarious – Alice Austin

Great song from Alice. I’m loving the Andriana album. Arc played a great show on Saturday at Signal Kitchen. Hmmm, The Cush. This next band play in town a lot and always put on a great show.

21.) Kick Rocks – And The Kids
22.) The Territory – Hana Zara
23.) Terrarium – Vedora
24.) Move Through Time – Persian Claws

Persian are fun and are Barbacoa when Dee joins them. Great song from Caroline Marie‘s band. Hana played a great show a while ago and I can’t wait for her new album. OK, let’s listen to a little evolution in action.

25.) Chop Wood/Carry Water – Zola Turn
26.) Dragged Around The Universe – Queen Tangerine
27.) Void – The Lavas
28.) Popular Crowd – SWALE

Swale are going to dress up as Black Sabbath and play the Paranoid album the Saturday before Halloween. Alice Austin and Julia Austin were in Zola then changed the band to Queen then to the Lavas, so I thought it would be fun to listen to those three together. OK, there’s not much time left. On Saturday lots of musicians will assemble for Ladies Rock Lotto Fall 2016 and will form bands in the morning and perform later that night. It’s a benefit for Girls Rock Vermont. Here are a couple of songs by prominent supporters Linda Bassick and Samara Lark Brown.

29.) Super Sexy Science Party – Wave of the Future
30.) Tell Me – Linda Bassick
31.) High Water Mark – Belizbeha

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 last night at ArtsRiot. The show began loud, fast, and rocking with one of my favorite bands, Cave Bees. They opened with everyone’s favorite I Need A Raise and rocked into full gear with Lunacy. Round Some rocked hard and Sweet Pussy had a nice grind to it. They wrapped up the first album portion of the show with Mine All Mine and a blistering version of Golden Goose. They played four newer songs including Josephine and closed with the song about a remedy that is rock and roll. They sounded fantastic and I was in heaven for every moment.

 

 

We Are The Asteroid at ArtsRiot October 19, 2016 pic by Tim Lewis

We Are The Asteroid at ArtsRiot October 19, 2016 pic by Tim Lewis

 

Up next WE Are The Asteroid from Austin Texas took the stage with a roar. They opened with a rocking instrumental then dropped it into a song that is likely called Future Gods. The guitar player and bass player traded lead vocals and the drummer, who was pretty stunning all night long, added some nice backing vocals. Most of the songs had a nice groove to them and were punctuated my metal heaviness and some killer guitar work. They played a song about a walk through the Desert and closed the 10 song set with a rocker that had a nice whoa whoa whoa chant that reminded me a bit of Iron Maiden. They were lots of fun.

 

 

Tsu Shi Ma Mi Re  at ArtsRiot October 19, 2016 pic by Tim Lewis

Tsu Shi Ma Mi Re at ArtsRiot October 19, 2016 pic by Tim Lewis

 

Tsu Shi Ma Mi Re capped the night with a heavy rocking set. The songs had an indie rock or punk or metal or some twisted combination of the three feel to them. The guitar player sang most of the songs, the bass player was excellent and the drummer played hard and had a great voice when she sang. They told a story about being on the road with Asteroid and about doing an EP where they each covered each others song. They played a version of Desert that sounded quite different from Asteroid’s which was fantastic on a few levels. They had the audience dancing hard for the nine song set and finished the night with a well demanded encore. I love it when I see bands I know little about and have them rock me so hard.

Tonight’s local music radio show on 107.1FM WBKM will go as follows.

Song before: Where Is My Mind? – The Pixies

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Thanks Higher Ground for sponsoring our station. They have a lot of music happening this week, and so does the rest of our town. Let’s begin with a guy who played around in the 1990’s and is getting the band back together.

1.) Sunflower Street – Dave Jarvis Band
2.) What’s The Deal With The Triangle? – James Kochalka Superstar
3.) Chuck Berry – Dino Bravo VT
4.) The Next Instead – SWALE

On Monday Kochalka, Dino, Swale and Led Loco played a show in honor of Mike McGonegal. It was a great send off and most of those songs were played. He will be missed. OK, here is the next song on the album I’m playing all the way through week after week. The album is called Song For My Double.

5.) Aspiration – Invisible Homes
6.) The Storm Has Been Weathered – 1881
7.) Children Of The Stars – Madaila
8.) Johnny – Arc Iris

9.) See Me On My Way – Superhuman Happiness
10.) Better Off – Haley Jane and the Primates
11.) Clocks On The Wall – Jeremy Gilchrist – Singer-Songwriter
12.) It’ll Be OK – Let’s Whisper

Great new song from Whisper. Who needs contests when you can just walk out to a local club and see people like Jeremy. Haley and the band will be at Nectar’s tomorrow and always put on an enthralling show. This next singer will be at Manhattan Pizza on Saturday.

13.) Dreams Elope – Joe Adler
14.) East Jabip – REDadmiral
15.) Muskrat Love – Cave Bees
16.) Two Weeks (’til The End Of The World) – Grand

I still remember the show Grand played at Nectar’s a few months ago and can’t wait to see them again. Bees are playing next Wednesday at ArtsRiot. Admiral are at the Monkey House on Saturday and always rock. OK, let’s play some classic Burlington songs.

17.) Gas And Oil – Gas And Oil
18.) Weapons Factory – The Wards
19.) Las Vegas – Ninja Custodian
20.) The Spy Song – Pinhead.

All four of those are classic Burlington songs. This next one is too and is unfortunately still all too appropriate.

21.) Boys Club – Peg Tassey MUSIC
22.) Kill Your Idols – Slush
23.) Blood Boy – Barbacoa
24.) Sunday – Envy

Those are all classics too. Barbacoa will play with Swale tomorrow at ArtsRiot for a live recording, so that is one of the many can’t miss shows tomorrow, and Saturday is just as packed. OK, let’s keep rocking.

25.) Knight Ov Swords – The Contrarian
26.) Nowhere Feels Like Home – Fire The Cannons
27.) Lead Me To Your Love – The New Siberians

Great new Siberians song. FTC rocked the early 2000’s and Casey used to sing in a few local bands. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

I got a little extra organized and have tonight’s local music radio show on 107.1FM WBKM all lined up. It will run from 9-11pm US Eastern Time and will go as follows:

Song before: Alone – Children in Paradise

Intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds of Burlington. I want to thank Higher Ground for sponsoring our station. They have lots of shows happening this week and have Built to Spill playing tonight. Let’s begin tonight with some huge sweeping songs in honor of all of those people in our community who have huge sweeping hearts.

1.) Teenage Mother Earth – The Red Telephone
2.) Breathing In – The Hero Cycle
3.) If You Get Lost – SWALE
4.) Cascade – Andriana Chobot

Cascade has such a huge luscious sound. Same for Lost. Swale will be playing Saturday at The Monkey House with The Nancy Druids. Sean from the Druids also plays in Telephone so it’s going to be a great night of music. I will be out of town, but more on that later. Great song from Hero. On a more somber note, this week the Burlington community lost one of it’s funniest and most treasured people. I loved all the wry posts that Mike McGonegal shared with us and I got to meet and hang out with him a few weeks back at a Silver Bridget show. I’m going to play three of their instrumental songs to pay a quiet tribute to Mike, and to all of the people who have left this life. I invite you to join me.

5.) Old Man – Silver Bridget
6.) She’s Leaving Home – Silver Bridget
7.) Harvest Moon – Silver Bridget

It was fun seeing them that night and having Mike help me identify which song they were playing. He will be greatly missed by our community. Since we are in a contemplative mood, let’s play the next song from the album I’m playing all the way through, song after song, week after week. Here is the next one from Song For My Double.

8.) Contemplating The Ivory – Invisible Homes
9.) Little Monster – Strange Machines
10.) What If – Madaila
11.) What If – REDadmiral

I had to play those two back to back. They are obviously quite different songs. Machines will be at Nectar’s tomorrow. Homes play so many great styles of music. That’s a song from Madaila’s new album Traces. Admiral are at The Monkey House Tonight. So is this next band.

12.) Ninjas Vs Zombies – Phil Yates
13.) Restaurant – The Mountain Says No
14.) Emerald – Ace Frehley
15.) Hey Ernie – Cold Sweat

When I was younger some friends and I would drive all over Vermont and New York to go see Sweat. We’d see them in Glens Falls and Clifton Park and places like that. I have tickets with my brother Ken to see Ace on Saturday in Clifton Park, NY so that should be fun. I believe that Lizzy cover is in the setlist. Great rocker from Mountain and fun song from Phil. I saw this next band last week at Foam Brewers

16.) Medieval Knieval – Barbacoa
17.) Say It – Anachronist
18.) Falter – Chin Ho
19.) Green Apple Girl – David Jarvis

It sounds like Dave is getting the band back together soon. Great classic from Chin. Great song from Anachronist. Barbacoa always rock. OK, let’s keep rocking.

20.) Sally – Daniel Waterhouse (Dan Murphy)
21.) Windigo – Crazyhearse
22.) The Day I Met You – Dirtminers
23.) A Different Machine – Elephants of Scotland

Great rocker from Elephants, who are really from VT. Great rockers from Dirt and Crazy and cool song from Dan. OK, there’s just a little bit of time left. Let’s keep rocking.

24.) 88 – Wave of the Future
25.) 22R – Cave Bees
26.) Black, Blue and White – The New Siberians
27.) I Am Sunday – The Red Telephone

I thought I’d end where I began. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town, let’s do it again next week, shall we?
