Tonight’s local music radio show on WBKM will run from 9-11pm US Eastern time Thursday July 20 and will go as follows.

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. Tarrant Gallery which is part of the Flynn Center for the Performing Arts for a free show at 5pm tomorrow as part of it’s Exhibitionist series.

17.) I Know, Right? – The Mountain Says No
18.) Sin Is Funner – Swillbillie
19.) Oklahoma Road Rage – Crazyhearse
20.) Yayo – Dirty Blondes

The Blondes, Crazy, and Swill will be at The Monkey House tomorrow and that show will rock. This next band rocked the Monkey House last week.

21.) Lunacy – Cave Bees
22.) NA – Modern Trigger
23.) Stick That In Your Juicebox And Sip It – Better Things
24.) The Wolves Are Coming – Suburban Samurai
25.) Time Travel – Bearchild

Bear, Better, Modern and the Bees played a great show at the Monkey last week. Better and Suburban play there on this coming Saturday. OK, let’s rock out for a bit.

26.) Every Last One Of Us – Swale
27.) Song About The Ocean – Dino Bravo VT
28.) Jackbooted Thugs (Have All the Best Drugs) – Anders Parker
29.) Tow Truck – David L Jarvis

I want to dedicate that song to everyone who’s been aggravated to find that their car has been towed, especially to people named Cody. Anders has a couple of shows coming up soon. Great songs from Dino and Swale. 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 Friday at Light Club Lamp Shop and Nectar’s. The timing was perfect so I could catch both shows easily.

I got out of work a little early, had some time to hang out, then took the short walk to the Lamp Shop. I got in and settled and said hi to Molly King and Loren. I got a spot close to the stage and The Nancy Druids Duo took the stage. John was on vacation so Sean switched from electric guitar to acoustic and Ann Mindell took a small edge off the drums and they played their lovely songs in a new format. I fully expected that the songs were so strong that they would hold up fine and was proven correct from the first few notes. They opened with a song about the way things might have been then knocked out Just Another Day. Sign was fun and poppy and it was great to hear December in June. Sky spoke to our universal nature then they took a walk in the park and felt fine. Halo is one of their heavier songs but it translated well into the acoustic setting with Ann not hitting the drums quite as hard but still adding the quick fills. Disappear is a gorgeous song and sounded great and By Design was fun too. They played a new song about seeing salvation all around and I, and the mostly full room, was in a happy place. Sean said they never do Envy songs but made an exception with A Thousand Lies. They closed with The Space Between but the audience would not let them go. A cover of Leonard Cohen’s Hey, That’s No Way To Say Goodbye closed the set perfectly.

I headed out quickly then took the walk down to Nectar’s. I said hi to Rebecca Rogers and then Nathan Curtis showed up. The Dirty Blondes hit the stage as a five-piece with Chris Clark on bass, Ornan McLean, and new guy John M Whyte on guitar. They opened fast and hard with Burn and both Becky and Diane Sullivan were in wonderful voice. Crybaby followed then they showed us how to do the Kung Pao. Scorned Woman kept the rock at a furious pace then they eased up a little for Oh Dirty Blondes. Hallelujah kept our spirits up then they ramped back up with Slut. They kept things dirty for Jacking Off then told the tale of being Too Drunk To Vote. They stayed with the theme for Drunk then told us why Ornan will always be the drummer for the Dirty Blondes. Yayo took us on a walk around town then they closed with That New Guy Is Not James Bond. They sounded great for the whole set and having John in the band sounded wonderful.

Up next, Swillbillie rocked out a bunch of songs about whiskey, chickens, and the devil. They have a punkabilly sound and play fast and loud. The guitar/vox, bass, drums trio opened with their Manifesto then sang a song about roosters. Recurring themes of the devil and roosters filled the set. Songs like Sin Is Funner and Whiskey High were just great. They closed the 15 song set with Hell Chicken and the mostly full room was in a happy place.

Dino Bravo VT closed the night with a killer rock set. Drummer Jeff LaBossiere was missing so David Evan sat in. David plays with Chris Farnsworth and Josh Shedaker in Zeus Springsteen so it was almost a mix of the two bands. Singer/guitar player Matthew Stephen Perry lead the band through Past The Mark then they pulled out a cover of Remedy. Two Car Garage and Pop Music brought us back to familiar Dino territory then they pulled out a cover of 20th Century Boy. Crime Scene was bit more mellow but really cool, then Wee’s Birthday Boy sounded great as always. They played a Zeus song next with David singing it then they let it slip into Time/Breathe reprise. It’s always great when a singer plays drums too. Strawberry Blonde and Chuck Berry were Dino songs that rocked hard then they ended the night with a couple of covers. TV On The Radio’s Wolf Like Me rocked hard and they closed with Creep from Stone Temple Pilots. They were done but the audience was not. They came back for a towering Comfortably Numb that let Chris shine on guitar.

I headed out pretty quickly after the show. It was such a great night of music.

Swale 016

 

Tonight’s local music radio show on 107.1FM WBKM will run from 9-11pm US Eastern time June 8, 2017 and will go as follows:

Song before: I Will Dare – The Replacements

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It was a rainy week but the last couple of days have been beautiful and sunny and this town is filled to the brim with jazz. Tonight’s show will be a jazz free zone. Let’s begin with a new wispy piece of music from one of the classic bands in town.

1.) Here’s Where You Were – SWALE
2.) She Has Your Name – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
3.) Bulldozer – The Zero Likes
4.) Nightingale – 1881

That is the next song from Lights, Camera, Action and is the first song on the Camera EP. Great song. Zero Likes feature Doug McAllister from Ninja Custodian and Doug just sent me that a couple of days ago. Thanks!! Great song by Phil Yates and the band. Phil is moving on to Chicago soon and will play one more show tomorrow at The Monkey House. I will be thee. Hmmm, Swale. OK, last night I went over to Robot Dog Studio and recorded an interview with live songs from Dino Bravo. I want to thank Ryan Cohen for doing the sound, Jeff Arbor for helping to set up and Tom Wolf for doing video. Here we go.

5.) Sugar Coated Candy Stix – Dino Bravo VT
6.) Strawberry Blonde – Dino Bravo
7.) Crime Scene – Dino Bravo
8.) A Song About The Ocean – Dino Bravo

Thanks for rocking us nice and hard Dino! They mentioned they have an upcoming show with The Dirty Blondes so let’s play one of their songs.

9.) Yayo – Dirty Blondes
10.) Whiskey High – Swillbillie
11.) Too Good – Black Rabbit
12.) Ninjas Vs Zombies (Let’s Keep Our Heads) – Phil Yates

I’m happy for Phil but sad that he won’t be playing around all the time anymore. I’ve enjoyed many shows over the years and have played his music on my radio show since the second one I did in March of 2013. Black Rabbit will play the show with them tomorrow over at the Monkey House. I think Swillbillie will play the upcoming Nectar’s show with Dino and the Blondes. OK, this next band are in town tomorrow night for a show at Jim’s basement.

13.) Two Weeks (‘Til The End Of The World) – Grand
14.) On A Sunday – Screaming Broccoli
15.) Paint It Black – Silver Bridget
16.) Could You Be The One? – Phil Yates & The Affiliates

Another classic from Phil and the band. Great cover of the Stones song by Bridget. Broccoli played back in the late ’80’s in Burlington and were lots of fun. Grand are so much fun. I really like a lot of Phil’s songs but he and the band have played many shows with some really fun bands and I got to know them because of Phil. Here are a couple.

17.) Sparks – The Color Exchange
18.) Jessie – Danny LeFrancois and The Parts
19.) Tropa – YURT
20.) Flicker (Song For Clara) – Phil Yates & The Affiliates

Another great Phil song. Phil and the band played with Yurt at the Monkey House in July of 2016. They played with The Parts at Manhattan Pizza and Pub in January of this year. They played with Color Exchange at Nectar’s in 2015. This next band also played that show.

21.) This Machine – Invisible Homes
22.) Place ov Dead Roads – Casey Merlin Rae
23.) The Light – Kat Wright
24.) Grass is Always Greener – Phil Yates & The Affiliates

That one features Raph Worrick on the keys. Great rocking song from Kat and the band. Their guitar player, Bob Wagner, is joining Seth Yacovone Band tonight at Nectar’s for a band they are calling Water For Gasoline. That’s a brand new song from Casey Merlin Rae, who is living in Washington DC but comes back to play now and then. Great song from Homes. OK, there is not much time left so let’s play a few more songs as we say goodbye to the mighty and wonderful Phil Yates.

25.) Burn Burn Burn – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
26.) Burn It Down, Bernadette – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
27.) Might As Well Settle – Phil Yates & The Affiliates

The Dirty Blondes, Swillbillie, and Crazyhearse at The Monkey House March 11, 2017   Leave a comment

I had a great time seeing music last night at The Monkey House. It was a long work day that I made a bit trickier than ideal, but the numbers feel into line at the end, so that was cool. I went home, ate dinner and contemplated the cold temperature and lovely wind. i knew the show was going to be hot so I bundled up and took the long walk to Winooski.

I got in and settled and chatted with Miller about music for a while then the Dirty Blondes hit the stage. From the opening strains of Burn, Chris Clark and Ornan McLean were completely locked in and drove the heavy rhythm while Jesse Azarian ripped out some sweet guitar leads. Becky Rogers and Diane Sullivan sang well and engaged the attentive crowd with joy. They had us do the Kung Pao then screamed out the story of the Scorned Woman. They turned us on with their love on Oh Dirty Blondes then made sure we were all Drunk. They were pretty emphatic about that new guy not being James Bond and the band played a killer extended outro for the song. This made us shower praise on them and we all sang Hallelujah. They pulled out a new song that was really good. I’m not sure if it is Bernie Sanders has our back or Bernie Sanders is a lot like you, but either way, the message was clear. They got a little extra dirty for Slut and Jackin’ Off then praised one of the greatest drummers ever in Ornan. They were going to wrap the night with a ferocious Yayo but in the late middle Eros finally arrived so they played the Kung Pao for her to close the night. She’s a huge fan of the band so it was very appropriate.

The set break was not long and Swillbillie hit the stage. The guitar/singer, bass, drums band rocked hard with a swampy country edge. They played songs about the Devil, whiskey and chickens and were lots of fun. They ran the first three songs together before settling in and chatting with the audience a bit. Richard Bailey is a good singer and a fun front man. They sang songs about the devil coming after me and whiskey high and rolling on. They rocked hard and loud for about an hour and played 14 super fun songs. They ended with a bluesy song about a milk cow followed by the tale of a rooster in the morning when you’re trying to sleep. It was my first time seeing them and hopefully, I’ll get back to see them again soon.

I chatted with Miller and some of his friends during the set break but when I heard the opening strains of Demon Moon I headed back to the band. Crazyhearse rocked the hell out of the song and the crowd was happy. With a guitar/singer, guitar, bass, drums lineup they had a country tinged gypsy rock feel. The band are tight and talented and a pleasure to listen to. They kept us rocking for a bit then David Kloepfer traded his guitar for the electric banjo. The next two songs had an epic feel and I was elated. He switched back to electric guitar and rocked the next one nicely. They brought up a singer who’s name I missed and his bluesy gravelly voice sounded great. The song was something about being asleep when I’m dead. A cover of John Fogerty’s Old Man Down The Road was fun but the next song had a jam in the middle that got the whole front of the room dancing hard. They brought the power up to full blast for Windigo and kept it there for the closing Oklahoma Road Rage.

I was tired and knew the next day would be long, so I headed out quickly and took the long cold happy walk home.

Jeremy Gilchrist at Robot Dog Studio – Pic by Tim Lewis

Tonight’s local music radio show on WBKM 107.1FM will run from 9-11pm US Eastern time and will go as follows.

Song before: Under Bright Stars – Alice Austin

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the sounds of Burlington. I want to thank Higher Ground for being such a great rock club and for sponsoring our station. Let’s begin with one of those great Burlington songs that gets performed now and then.

1.) Once Upon – Vedora
2.) Let Me Be – Peter Burton
3.) Forsythia – Cricket Blue
4.) Bury Me – Forest Gray

Forest has so many fun songs. I wanted to play a song about flowers since we got a nice snowstorm this morning. Thanks Cricket. Great song from Peter. That was recorded live by Ryan Cohen at Robot Dog Studio a couple of weeks ago. Last week I went back to the studio with Jeremy Gilchrist for the second part in the ongoing series. Here is the interview and the three songs he played.

5.) Faded Movie Reel – Jeremy Gilchrist – Singer-Songwriter
6.) Endless War – Jeremy Gilchrist
7.) Great Filter – Jeremy Gilchrist

Thanks to Ryan and Jeremy for making that happen. It will be fun to bring in bands to play live, now and then. OK, here is the next song on the album I’m playing all the way through song after song week after week. We are currently traveling though By My Side and here comes the rock song.

8.) The Light – Kat Wright
9.) A Question Mark To Answer – Seth Yacovone Band
10.) Little Song – Invisible Homes
11.) Ready To Race – Lendway

Those are all such great songs. Did you catch the theme? This next band will rock Foam Brewers tomorrow night.

12.) Surf Showdown – The High Breaks
13.) ME 262 – The Contrarian
14.) Game Of Thrones – The Mountain Says No
15.) Loose Tooth – Clever Girls

That’s the title song from the brand new EP by Clever Girls. I really need to get out and see them soon. Great song from Mountain. Great cover from Casey Merlin Rae. If you want to hear surf music on a winter day, head to Foam tomorrow. It’s late, so let’s play some sleepy time music.

16.) Sleepwalker – 1881
17.) The Call – Swillbillie
18.) Windigo – Crazyhearse
19.) Burn – Dirty Blondes

Blondes, Hearse, and Billie will play at The Monkey House on Saturday night so that should be fun. Great song from 1881. Last week I played one of the new songs from Slingshot Dakota. Here is the other.

20.) Grudge – Slingshot Dakota
21.) Black 17 – The New Siberians
22.) Make Me See Stars – The Lonestar Chain

24.) Little French Earthquakes – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
25.) The Crisis – Ninja Custodian
26.) Hold me Tight – The Decentz

Tonight’s local music radio show on WBKM 107.1FM can be heard over the air on both sides of the Champlain Valley or streamed from the Facebook page link above. It will run from 9-11pm US Eastern time and will go as follows.

Song before: First We Take Manhattan (live) – Leonard Cohen

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I want thank Higher Ground for sponsoring our station. They’ve got a huge show with Kat Wright releasing her new album By My Side tomorrow. I want to begin tonight with the many reports of bullying and swastika painting and acts of intimidation that have been happening since the election. We need to investigate every incident and call people out on their mean language and horrible actions. It’s time to look at ourselves as a country and encourage our good nature and step past the darker elements in our soul. It’s time to acknowledge that we’ve got problems.

1.) You’ve Got Problems – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band
2.) Bird On The Sea – The New Siberians
3.) Are We Mad? – David Rosane & The Zookeepers
4.) Children Of The Stars – Madaila

We are going to have to remember that we are all in this together and do our part to add positive actions to our community. After all, we all live under the same stars. David Rosane has written some great post election analysis of what’s going on and what can be. He also writes great songs. The Siberians sing about love saving us and we will need to keep that in mind. Great new song from Kat and the band. The story of how that came together is pretty great. OK, here comes the last song from Song For My Double. I’ll be off next week for Thanksgiving and in December I will start a new album to play all the way through, song after song, week after week, until it is done.

5.) No One – Invisible Homes
6.) Shy Spiders – Villanelles
7.) 2000 – The Pants
8.) Hey, That’s No Way To Say Goodbye (live) – Leonard Cohen

A lot of local musicians have been saddened by the death of Leonard. He will be sorely missed but the staggering body of work that he left us can come alive every time someone plays one of his songs or reads one of his poems. There was a beautiful gathering of local artists on Monday at Light Club Lamp Shop and that can happen whenever we want to make it happen again. Kirk Flanagan did a great version of Hey at that show, and he also played one Leon Russel song. Pants were a classic band from Burlington’s ’90’s. Spiders is a modern classic. Great song, and album, from Homes. Here’s another Burlington classic.

9.) You Don’t Like Me, Do Ya – Pinhead
10.) Wally Rides The Ferry – Zoot Wilson
11.) Destiny Waits – Bud & Budd ~ The Kind Buds
12.) New Atlantis – Aaron Flinn

Great song by Aaron. He played a couple of Cohen songs on Monday. Bud Johnson and Budd are so kind and great performers. Zoot used to rock out town in the ’80’s and Pinhead played back then too. Those songs have been around for a while but this next one is brand new.

13.) Waiting – Mr. Doubtfire
14.) The Interrogator (Enhanced) – Milton Busker
15.) Lean In – When Particles Collide
16.) Blue Light Shine – Gabrielle Douglas and the Dwellers

We will all have to shine our loving lights a lot in the next four years. Particles are out and about fighting sexism and rocking our world. Hopefully, Milton’s song will not be as on the mark as it seems like it might be. Great new song from Doubtfire. This next band are at The Monkey House tomorrow. Let’s take a walk around town with Diane Sullivan and Becky.

17.) Yayo – Dirty Blondes
18.) Hold Me Tight – The Decentz
19.) Diamond Days – The Lavas
20.) Undecided – Rocketsled

Rocketsled will get the band back together next January. I loved that one Lavas album. The Decentz played back in the early ’80’s. OK, let’s keep rocking.

21.) Comm To Space – ROUGH FRANCIS
22.) Can’t Feel It – Vetica
23.) That’s When I Reach For My Revolver – Ninja Custodian
24.) Little French Earthquakes – Phil Yates & The Affiliates

Phil was at the Cohen show too. I love that song by him and the band. Ninja played in the late ’80’s and early ’90’s and always rocked the house with that one. I love that Vetica song. Such a classic from Francis. Here’s another classic from the ’90’s.

25.) Poem For Torin (Ethan’s Stoned) – Peg Tassey MUSIC
26.) Great Escape – Jeremy Gilchrist – Singer-Songwriter
27.) My Hero, The Enemy – Gregory Douglass

Great song from Gregory. Jeremy Gilchrist played at the Cohen show and Peg Tassey was there too, but just to listen. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. I’m off next week but will be back to do it again soon.
