I had a great time seeing music last Saturday at Higher Ground. I worked until 5:30, got home and settled for a bit, then went to the club and arrived just before the 7:30 showtime. I was kind of psyched for the anniversary show but was mostly excited to see four cool rock bands.

I got in and settled and soon enough it was time for Blowtorch to begin. They opened with a bit of a cowpunk sound but as the show progressed it was nothing but punk rock. Singer Clark Russell was delightfully animated and introduced many of the songs with a sound effect of some sort. Bill Mullins was as amazing on guitar as usual and the bass and drums were perfectly solid. They sang songs about watching your head and waving goodbye. They showed us what democracy looks like and wondered why they even try. They spoke of how hurricane Irma had two nuclear plants in it’s path and advised us to run for our lives. They encouraged us to rise and shine since we’re all in this together then told us about how water turns to ice. I think they played a song about a human hippopotamus but I might have missed something. They let us know that Trump lies matter and sang something about what in the world is wrong with you that had a bit of a Teenagers From Mars vibe. They closed the blistering 30 minute set saying I want what you want. I’m so glad I did not miss a note of their show.

Up next was a band who have been playing around for a while that I’d been meaning to check out. The stage was set with a robot wooden cut out and a robot with flashing lights and The Tsunamibots were dressed as robots and let us know they identified as robots. Much of the music was instrumental with a few vocals. I thought the sound would be more surf rock but it was more instrumental punk that had surf mixed in, though a couple had that classic surf sound. Imagine a looser Devo ripping it up and you’ve got the idea. Their 12 song set was fun and featured chants like Fuck You Robots Rule and songs about robot uprisings. They capped the night with a fun song called Co2ULater that made me want to check them out again.

I thought that there were four bands on the bill but Swillbillie took the stage next for a short and sweet set. They rocked a punkabilly sound super hard and fast. They opened with their Manifesto then rolled on. The next song was about the devil being on the run. I missed the details of the next song but I think it was about whiskey. They closed the short set with a rousing Hell Chicken that kept me smiling and rocking.

The set break was short then Dirty Blondes hit the stage with a roar. Their songs have nice melodies and a punk rock sound and are always fun. They opened with Burn then rocked out Crybaby. They brought the spirituality with Hallelujah then sang about Jacking Off. Oh Dirty Blondes filled my heart like it always does. At one point Lefty played his guitar in the audience all around the room and at one point the Sisters LeMay cruised through. The Blondes taught us to dance with Kung Pao. Slut rocked hard and Drunk is always a fun song. They celebrated their kick ass drummer Ornan then taught us who James Bond really is. They capped the night with a ripping Yayo and fun was had by all.

It was finally time for the 25th anniversary of classic ’90’s rap punk band Dysfunkshun. Marc Daniels sang and Richard Bailey sang and played guitar. Ornan McLean sat in on drums and the band was filled out with Ben Bouchard on guitar and Aram Bedrosian on bass. Imagine reggae played at punk speed with super fast rapped vocals and you get the idea. They opened with Here We Go and kept the show at blistering pace for all 13 songs. The vocals were so fast it was hard to catch anything but I did catch themes like stopping and listening to the sound and freeing your mind and how it all falls down and it all comes down. They played a rockus song about the President and sang an anti-Nazi song. The whole set was fun.

I was pretty drained when they wrapped up so I did not stay long and headed for home. Any of those sets would have been enough and the combination made it yet another fantastic night of music in our town.

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?

Dirty Blondes, Swillbillie, and Crazyhearse at The Monkey House July 21, 2017   Leave a comment

The Dirty Blondes pic by Tim Lewis

I had a great time seeing music last Friday at The Monkey House. I got out of work at 7 and had a bit of time to hang out at home before taking the long walk to Winooski. I arrived a little after the 8:30 show time and the stage was being slowly set up. I hung out for a bit then it was time for Dirty Blondes. With both John M Whyte and Jesse Azarian on guitar the sound was a bit larger than usual. Jesse mostly plays lead so having John on rhythm brought out the glory of the music. Chris Clark‘s driving bass and Ornan McLean powerhouse drumming kept the rock at full throttle as Becky Rodgers and Diane Sullivan screamed out the lyrics. Diane had just lost her brother so she had some of his ashes in a small urn and the room was filled with friends and family. While there was the smallest hint of melancholy in the air, for the most part it was just a blistering rock show. They set the tone with a ripping version of Burn. Someone said John should play the next one a little fast. He lit into the guitar licks at top speed and the rest of the band kept up nicely as they unleashed Crybaby. They eased back to the usual fast pace for Kung Pao and we all did the dance move. Drunk and Slut rocked hard then they eased back a bit for Oh Dirty Blondes. That New Guy Is Not James Bond was as fun as always and John played the Bond theme perfectly. They rocked out the ending with a long jam and closed the night with a blistering Yayo that also had a jammed out ending. It was a short show but was as powerful and beautiful as you could hope for.

Up next Swillbillie regaled us with their high speed punkabilly rock. They began with a manifesto then sang a song about when the rooster crows. They played a couple of new ones and I think they were about the devil or chickens or whiskey or all three. They played a song that had the devil in the details. They played a song that rolled on. They played Sin Is Funner and Whiskey High and closed the 13 song set with Hell Chicken. It’s always a delight to see them play.

Crazyhearse pic by Tim Lewis

Crazyhearse closed the night and featured Shan from Swillbillie on bass. They began with a gypsy rock song then played one about farm crimes. They played a slower countryish song about when I kissed her good night then David switched from guitar to electric banjo. They played a song about tears on my sweater and as time goes by feeling so much better. They played another gypsy rock song then David switched back to guitar for a song about having a good night tonight. They played the epic Demon Moon then pulled out a cover of The Old Man Down The Road. The Mobius Strip was catchy and fun then they pulled out the epic Windigo. They were done but the audience wanted one more and they came back for a song about being a pirate. Crazyhearse just rock and always put on a fun show and I’m so glad I got to see them.

I headed out shortly after the last song and took the long and lovely walk home.

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.

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.

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.

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

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 will run from 9-11pm Thursday June 29 over the air at 107.1FM and can be streamed at WBKM. It will go as follows:
 
Song before: Stairway To The Stars – Blue Oyster Cult
 
intro
 
From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Last Sunday I went over to The Monkey House for one of the Show Up Shows to raise money for a good cause. Sean Hood played a gorgeous version of this song.
 
1.) Birds Of Park Slope – Eastern Mountain Time
2.) Liar – Maryse Smith
3.) Let Me Be – Peter Burton
4.) The Territory – Hana Zara
 
I miss Hana and hope she comes to see us again soon. I finally saw Peter’s band The Original Q last night at Nectar’s. They played a great version of that song, only with more bass, drums, and guitar. Maryse was back in town in May. It’s great when we are lucky enough to get to see her play. Great song by Mountain. OK, here is the next song from Lights Camera Action and is the last song on the Camera EP. We’ll move on to Action next week.
 
5.) Adam And Eve – 1881
6.) Giant Mosquitoes – Cold Sweat
7.) Every Time I Hear That Mellow Saxophone – Big Joe Burrell & The Unknown Blues Band
8.) Waiting For You – SWALE
9.) Eve & Adam – Cricket Blue
 
Cricket are pretty amazing and are playing at Farnham Ale & Lager VT tomorrow at 7. Swale have a new album, There’s No One Here, coming out July 7th and we are all waiting for them. After seeing Q last night I walked up Church st and stopped for a moment at the statue of Big Joe to reflect on the wonderful music that he put into out town. I want to keep playing it and keeping it alive. It’s definitely mosquito season here in VT so I had to play the Sweat song. Great song from 1881. This next artist is pretty amazing and will be at Foam Brewers next Wednesday.
 
10.) True Hue – Ivamae
11.) Relax – Joe Adler
12.) Detective Norman – Sad Turtle
13.) Mirror Mirror – Joe Adler & The Rangers Of Danger
 
That was recorded live at Nectar’s a while ago. He and the band will play in the rotary inside the traffic circle in Winooski next Wednesday. That should be interesting. Turtle are playing Saturday night at Radio Bean. Joe and his new band a.m. rejoice go on just before. This next band are doing a stripped down version of themselves tomorrow at 7:30 at Light Club Lamp Shop since their bass player is out of town. That should be interesting.
 
14.) By Design – The Nancy Druids
15.) The Call – Swillbillie
16.) Oh Dirty Blondes – Dirty Blondes
17.) Sugar Coated Candy Stix – Dino Bravo VT
 
Swillbillie are playing Nectar’s on Friday and are bringing Dino and the Blondes along. That will be a loud fun rocking show! This next performer was in a couple of Burlington bands in the ’90’s and just put our some new music.
 
18.) You’re the Target – Casey Merlin Rae
19.) Getting Laid In New Hampshire – Better Things
20.) Burning Bridges – Blue Button
21.) Monsters Are Due – Doom Service
 
Doom may or may not be playing a secret show that may or may not happen this weekend. If you like that song you may or may not want to check in with them. Great rockers from Blue, Better and Casey. This next band have a show coming up in a few weeks.
 
22.) Again Over Again – Banana Schlitz
23.) Jan Michael Vincent – Chin Ho
24.) Papertrain – David L Jarvis
25.) Chop Wood Carry Water – Zola Turn
 
I saw Zola many times in the ’90’s and they rocked hard every time. Dave played in the ’90’s and has a new band called Agent 802. Classic from Ho. I’m just getting to know the Banana album. It’s been sunny and rainy and the gardens in Vermont are putting the green in our name.
 
26.) The Naked Garden part J – Peg Tassey MUSIC
27.) The Road – Anders Parker
28.) Mary – Plan B
29.) The Naked Garden – Peg Tassey
 
Peg will be getting one of her bands, Peg Tassey ~ The Kissing Circle ~ Reprise, back together soon and will play a show and I am beyond excited. Mary is a classic from Burlington’s late ’80’s and early ’90’s. Great rocker from Anders. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?
