Francesca played a brilliant version of that on Monday when she joined Maryse’s weekly residency at Light Club Lamp Shop. Maryse played a great version of that song that night.

Happy Spangler and The Nancy Druids at The Monkey House and Julia Caesar and Clever Girls at Radio Bean January 27, 2018   Leave a comment

Happy Spangler pic by Tim Lewis

 

I had a great time seeing music on Saturday January 27th. It was one of those days where there were six or ten great shows in town and decisions had to be made.

I got out of work and hung out for a bit then took the long walk to Winooski. I got in and settled at The Monkey House and realized that the first band on was one that I knew nothing about and really wanted to see. Happy Spangler took the stage for their debut show. With Barbara Richmond on bass, Kirk Flanagan on guitar and vocals and Michael Bradshaw on drums and backing vocals, they had a pop punk sound that brought me back through the history of Burlington’s music scene while firmly planting me in 2018. Kirk was a great front man and introduced most of the songs and they opened with one called Dave Doesn’t Live Here Anymore. They played a song about bringing you flowers when you wanted drugs. They played a song called Baby Please and one about breaking the night. They played the brand newest of the new songs called Never Let Me Go then played another love song. They sang about a sweet bit of honey and told the true story of having never seen it coming. They played a fun song called Hawks and closed the set with Elvis Costello’s Waiting for the end of the world. It was a great beginning and I can’t wait to see them again.

Up next The Nancy Druids began playing their gorgeous rock and roll music. They opened with the Sky all around them then brought us back to December. They played a powerhouse version of By Design and followed with the newish song Salvation. Just another day had that heavy rock stomp and Halo featured Ann Mindell‘s explosive drumming. They played a cool new song called Bitter Days (?) then took us on a walk through Vondle Park (?). I Can’t Remember Who You Were was epic and Sean went way off on The Space Between to close the night. They are an amazing band.

There was one more band at the Monkey House but I decided to try and make it to a second show. I walked back into Burlington and waited in line for a bit at Radio Bean. I had heard a lot about, but had never seen, Julia Caesar. I was still outside when they began but I could hear reasonably well and my first thought was Zola Turn. Their songs had nice melodies and rocked hard. I made it inside after a couple of songs and found a place to enjoy the rest of the show. The songs had a great strength to them and I reveled in their power. They played a song about the ground and a new one about a holy ghost. They played a song about being down below the ground and closed with one about hearing me now. I definitely need to see them again and get to know their music. They are amazing.

Up next Clever Girls took the stage and kept it rocking. They opened with Tell Me No then shouted out the 1 2 3 4 intro to Loose Tooth. They played a new song I did not know but really liked then played an intense version of 45. They played more songs from their upcoming album such as Catch And Release and Loom. They closed the set with a heavy rocker that always gets me going. They are such a great band. I can’t wait for a new album so I can get to know their songs even better.

I didn’t hang out too long but did chat with a couple of cool people. The walk home was short and easy and I was in a blissfully happy place.

So, last year I developed a live in the studio music series with Ryan Cohen and Robot Dog Studio. Yesterday we released a free album with one song and one interview clip from each of the 16 bands that we recorded. The Andriana, Druids, and Clever Girls songs were from that.

Clever Girls, Sleeping In, and Apartment 3 at The Monkey House October 28, 2017   Leave a comment

Clever Girls pic by Tim Lewis

 

I had a great time seeing music last Saturday at The Monkey House. Christopher Larrow had come over for the weekend and we met up with Rich Haskell and headed to Winooski. We met up with Chris Rielly and Robin Chesebro Rielly and chatted for a bit. As the music began I headed to the front as Clever Girls shouted 1 2 3 4 and lit into Loose Tooth. They played a loud rocking set full of newer songs and classics. Their sound was full and rich and the volume was loud. Newer songs like Hannah just soared and classics like 45 had a slow burn that flowed into ripping guitar work. They closed with an intense rocker and I was in a happy place.

I hung out with everyone for a bit then the stage got loud and I returned. sleeping in had a lush indie rock sound. I did not know most of the songs but they were heavy and dreamy and I was in a happy place. They played some glorious music and wrapped the set with Tonight Tonight from Smashing Pumpkins.

Sleeping In pic by Tim Lewis

I hung out with everyone for a bit then the stage got loud as Apartment 3 began their final show. Their indie punk sound was pretty cool and rocked hard. Again, I was not overly familiar with their songs, and the sound was loud and the vocals buried a bit so it was hard to be certain which songs they played. They were all fun and the epic 21 song set was fantastic, and included a couple of Pavement covers. They closed the night with the last song from their album Paying It Forward and that was that.

By this point everyone else had taken off so I took the lovely long walk home. I’m so glad I got to see such powerful music.
