Song before: Countdown – Rush

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds of Burlington. Let’s begin tonight with a cool artist who has been playing in a cool band who just released a solo album.

1.) Better Off Alone – Meg Rice
2.) My Fear Of Losing You – Milton Busker
3.) Your Funeral – Zeus Springsteen
4.) 1965 – The New Siberians

That’s the next song on the Siberians great eponymous first album. Zeus played a killer show Monday at Higher Ground. Great song from Milton and it’s nice to see Meg step out. OK, this next band are from Rhode Island and they played Burlington once in the ’90’s and they have still stuck with me.

5.) We’re The Loops – The Mockingbirds
6.) Accidental Graveyard – The Dead Shakers
7.) Safe To Say – SWALE
8.) Mr Reed – Seth Yacovone Band

Seth and the band will be at the Old Post in South Burlington on Saturday. Swale will be at ArtsRiot on Saturday. The Shakers will be at Junktiques Collective on Saturday. If you like all three songs, you will have a tough choice to make. This next band will be at Radio Bean on Sunday, yea.

9.) The Space Between – The Nancy Druids
10.) Right Bright Lord – The Mountain Says No
11.) Waste Of Time – Preece
12.) If You Die – The Wards
13.) Jurassic Bark – Doom Service

That is on the Live From Robot Dog Studio Volume 2 that just came out. I really want to thank Ray Padgett from County Tracks for writing such a nice story about my struggle with my mother’s death last year, and the way that music helped me get through it. That was very nice. The Wards rocked us in the ’80’s and will continue rocking us later this evening. Great songs from Preece and Mountain. Both can be obtained for free on the Live From Robot Dog Studio Volume 2 album. I’m so psyched to see the Druids on Sunday. OK, It’s time to talk about a naughty word that apparently is fine to say in public by a fine moral leader like the President Of The United States. Wow, our decency standards as a nation are just gone now, as proven by the moral tolerance of the President’s speech by his “moral” base.

14.) Bullshit – Blue Button
15.) There’s A Problem – Mr. Doubtfire
16.) Fear The Government – The Wards
17.) Weapon Factory take 4 – The Wards
18.) Bernie Is A Punk – BERN UNIT
19.) Feel The Bern – Violint Wednesday

That song is such a lovely look at life when Bernie was Mayor of Burlington. He would make a decent President. Nice reworking of the Ramones song by the band from California. I though a double shot of Wards would be nice. I don’t think we need to fear the government but we do need to elect decent caring people, which we often do not do for odd reasons. Nice rockers from Doubtfire and Button. OK, here’s a brand new punk song.

20.) A Song About Riding Bikes Adrienne Cooper Smith
21.) Awake To Steak – Black Hairy Tongue
22.) Six O’ Clock – The Wards
23.) Decide – Dave Jarvis Band
24.) Prime – Black Rabbit

Great rocker from Rabbit. That’s not even on one of their albums yet. Classic ’90’s rocker from Dave. Nice punk from the ’80’s with the Wards. BHT straddled that line between the ’80’s and ’90’s. Adrienne is out rocking us today. This next band is doing the same.

25.) This Town – Suburban Samurai
26.) An Obscene Amount Of Debt – Sink or Swim
27.) United States – The Wards
28.) We Need Bigger Knives – As We Were
29.) Bury Me Easy – Real Talk

Cool song from their new album. Were played around in the early 2010’s. American Imperialism was in full force in the ’80’s as the Wards so nicely point out. Sink and Suburban are out and about rocking us hard. This next band is doing the same.

30.) Warmonger – Smokestack Lightning
31.) Gettin’ High – Heavy Plains
32.) Bit O Honey – Happy Spangler
33.) Magic In This Mystery – Robin Gottfried Band

Robin and his band will be at On Tap Bar & Grill on Saturday. Fun song from Spangler. Great rockers from Heavy and Smokestack. Well, I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

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.

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.

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Last week had a ton of great shows and this week looks the same. We’re lucky to have so much great music and so many great events happening all the time. Let’s begin tonight with an artist who played live on the show last week.

1.) Dig Him – Andriana Chobot
2.) Child – Clare Byrne: Song and Dance
3.) Mon Ange – Francesca Blanchard
4.) Paris Is For Love – David Rosane & The Zookeepers

I saw David and the band play a lovely version of that song last week at American Flatbread Burlington Hearth. They are playing Sunday night at Radio Bean about 10pm. Hopefully, they will start a couple of minutes late so everyone can watch Game Of Thrones first. I haven’t caught up with Francesca in a while but still love her music. Thanks to Ted Looby for turning me on to Clare’s music. Great song from Andriana. OK, here is the next song on Action.

5.) 8 Long Years – 1881
6.) Skeleton Star – The Cush
7.) My Fear Of Losing You – Milton Busker
8.) Felon – SWALE

That’s another great song from Swale’s new album There’s No One Here. Great song from Milton from his album You Are What You Pretend To Be. That’s a new song from The Cush from the Dreamy Life Records compilation Group Therapy Volume 3 and it’s always exciting to play new music from them! Great song from 1881. This next artist just released an EP called Pizzaface and here is one of the songs.

9.) Automatic Sweetheart – Hammydown
10.) The Feeling Is Strange – Binger
11.) Low Flying Planes – Chin Ho
12.) Shy Spiders – Villanelles

Spiders is already one of the great Vermont songs. Planes is a classic from the ’90’s. Binger have lots of shows coming up including the The Skinny Pancake Burlington on Saturday. They always put on a great show. Great stuff from Abbie Gail and the band. This next band will be at SideBar next Wednesday.

13.) Art Of Vandalay – Sad Turtle
14.) Bullet – REDadmiral
15.) Last Love – Myra Flynn Music
16.) You’ve Got Problems – Kat Wright

Great song form Kat Wright and the band. Myra could be anywhere in the world but comes back to town now and then to enchant us with her lovely music. Nice rocker from Admiral and cool song from Turtle. I have not caught up with this next band for a while and hopefully they will have new music soon.

17.) Little Song – Invisible Homes
18.) Bad Oasis – farm
19.) Sun-Dipped Orphan and The Wizard’s Tea Pot – Elephants of Scotland
20.) That’s When I Reach For My Revolver – Ninja Custodian

Classic rocker from Ninja. Great song from Elephants. I can’t wait for their next album. Stunning song from Farm. Lovely song from Homes. OK, Brendan Devitt from Ninja is in a new band and this song is already a classic.

21.) Black 17 – The New Siberians
22.) Happy Song – Shred Flintstone
23.) Killing Ghosts – Better Things
24.) We’re Closed – Blue Button

Wonderful rocker from Button. Things and Shred are playing over at Friends of Jim’s Basement tonight. Great song from the Siberians. OK, tomorrow this next guy turns 50 so let’s celebrate.

25.) Green Apple Girl – David L Jarvis
26.) Oh Dirty Blondes – Dirty Blondes
27.) All My Life – Wide Wail

Song before: Looking For A Place To Happen – The Tragically Hip

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It’s been a great week for music and I’ve been getting out to as many shows as possible. This first performer took the stage for the first time in many years last Thursday and sounded as great as ever. This is the song she opened with.

1.) First Kiss – Peg Tassey MUSIC
2.) (What’s So Funny ’bout) Peace, Love, and Understanding – Elvis Costello
3.) The Art Of Giving In – 1881
4.) Oliver’s Army – Elvis Costello

I want to thank Higher Ground for sponsoring us at the station and for bringing so much great music to town. They are bringing Elvis Costello to the Shelburne Museum on Sunday and I could not be more excited. That’s the next song on 1881’s series of EP’s called Lights, Camera, Action. I had to stick that one in between other songs since the intro and outro are so fun. Great songs from Elvis and It was so great to hear Peg sing again. OK, let’s head over to Robot Dog Studio for another edition of WBKM live at Robot Dog. Tonight we feature the amazing Andriana Chobot.

5.) Dig Him – Andriana Chobot
6.) Cascade – Andriana Chobot
7.) Another Day – Andriana Chobot
8.) My Old Home – Andriana Chobot

I love Andriana’s songs and hope you do to. Thanks Ryan Cohen for making us sound so great. I saw this next performer play a couple of songs a long time and have loved their music ever since. I got to see them play a long show at American Flatbread yesterday and they were fantastic. Here is one of the songs they played.

9.) Urban Country – David Rosane & The Zookeepers
10.) Elevator – SWALE
11.) My New Mix Tape – Eef
12.) On My Way – Hover

That’s a classic from Burlington’s ’90’s. Eef played around in the ’90’s too but got back together about a year ago for a show and I’ve loved the song Mix Tape ever since. That Swale song has been stuck in my head all week. I hope it gets stuck in yours too. Great song from David and the band. This next band are at Red Square tonight.

13.) Lovely Day – gneiss
14.) Children Of The Stars – Madaila
15.) The Light – Kat Wright
16.) Salty Things – Queen Tangerine

Alice Austin and Julia Austin used to be in Zola Turn then did an album as QT and put out a few cool songs. Great song from Kat Wright‘s new album. Fun song from Madaila who will shut down Main st for a show in a few weeks. Gneiss are so lovely. This next band will be at the Amy E.

Song before: Winter – Tori Amos

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It was in the 70’s over the weekend and today it’s cold and snowy. Welcome to Vermont. Let’s begin tonight with a lovely singer songwriter who graces our state.

1.) Can You Love Me Too? – Bethany Conner Music
2.) Alone In The Night – Andriana Chobot
3.) When The Night’s Get Long – Carraway
4.) Bird On The Sea – The New Siberians

I just love that Siberians song. As February ends the nights just seem to stay long so I thought those songs would sound like Burlington. Andriana is playing at Red Square on Saturday at 5pm if you are looking for cool music. Great song from Bethany. OK, let’s play the next song on By My Side.

5.) You’ve Got Problems – Kat Wright
6.) What If? – Madaila

What a lovely piece of rocking dramatic music from Cricket. I just love the drama that Rue add to the music. If you like Madaila, you may want to head to Club Metronome tomorrow night. I think you will like the band they have playing. Great song from Kat and the band. OK, on Saturday this next artist is finally coming back to town. I’ve seen him a dozen times (or so) at Metronome over the years, though not for a long time. The first time I saw him play was back at Hunts with his band The Bears. I’m very excited for his show Saturday night at ArtsRiot. It’s sold out, so I hope you have a ticket.

9.) Young Lions – Adrian Belew
10.) Ampersand – Adrian Belew
11.) Newrotica – Adrian Belew

14.) Winter – Dave Jarvis
15.) Always Monica/Down At The Duck – Chin Ho

Happy Birthday Andrew X Smith and thanks for all the great music over the years. It’s finally cold enough to play the Dave song. Hmmm, Mountain, hmmmm. So, I just got a couple of new songs from a great band who play Burlington once or twice a year. Here’s one of them.

16.) Dying Stars – Slingshot Dakota
17.) I Didn’t Know I Was A Wizard – Colin Nicholas Clary
18.) A Bottle Of Whiskey Later – Crazyhearse
19.) The Whiskey Always Wins – When Particles Collide

OK, this next band features a local guitar player who has been in a couple of bands and takes lots of great concert photos. Some of them are hanging in The Mule Bar in Winooski and they are doing a show opening tonight. Luke Awtry Photography has been done a great job documenting the local scene in pictures. Let’s play one of Luke Adam‘s songs from one of my favorite bands.
