Song before: Red Rain – Peter Gabriel

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds of Burlington. Last week was a bit crazy in the political world but this week has seem a bit more calmness. All around people are being wonderful and building networks of love and planting seeds to help the future blossom. Let’s begin with a song about that.

1.) Seed Of Healing – That Virginia
2.) Young Girl – Clare Byrne: Song and Dance
3.) Mama – Ivamae
4.) Glory Bound – Maryse Smith

Great song from Maryse who used to play in town all the time but still stops by to enchant us. Ivamae’s songs are so beautiful. I have to go see her again soon. I wanted to go back to Clare’s ep after playing a song a couple of weeks ago. What a great song. I’ve really got to get to know That Virginia. Thanks Jennifer Grossi for sending me her music. OK, let’s head on over to Robot Dog Studio for another edition of WBKM Live At Robot Dog. Tonight I interview David Rosane & The Zookeepers and they play four cool songs.

5.) Grandma – David Rosane & The Zookeepers
6.) Sugar And Cream – David Rosane & The Zookeepers
7.) Hope In The Dark – David Rosane & The Zookeepers
8.) What The Fuck Went Wrong – David Rosane & The Zookeepers

Thanks so much Jennifer, Don Sinclair, David Rosane for playing and thanks Ryan Cohen for the production and recording and to Mary Wolcott for being part of the scene. OK, let’s play the next song on Loose Tooth which is the album I’m playing all the way through, song after song, week after week.

9.) Crazy – Clever Girls
10.) Lovely Day – gneiss
11.) My Fear Of Losing You – Milton Busker
12.) Finally Found The One – When Particles Collide

Particles are a great rock band and will be at The Monkey House next Wednesday. Milton is a great songwriter and will be at Light Club Lamp Shop next Tuesday. It was nice to see gneiss for the end of their show at Red Square last night. I love Clever Girls. This next band will be at the Monkey on Wednesday with Particles.

13.) Strawberry Blonde – Dino Bravo VT
14.) Bridge To Panda Chaos – Zeus Springsteen
15.) Here We Go – Dysfunkshun
16.) New Age Woman – Pinhead

Classic song from Pinhead who helped shape the wide dynamic of music that we now have in town. Dys will get back together for a show soon. Zeus will rock Montpelier this Saturday. Great song from Dino. Last Monday I went to Nectar’s and saw these next three bands.

17.) Good Times – Grand
18.) We Govern The Breeze – Humble Hero
19.) I Choo-Choo-Choose You – Mr. Doubtfire
20.) Another Day Closer To Nothing – Grand

I had to play two Grand songs because they are so short and so great. Great song from Doubt. It was great to get to know Hero and they rocked that song hard Monday night. OK, let’s keep rocking.

21.) Commune – Greaseface
22.) Local Lore – Savage Hen
23.) One Thousand Lies – Comrade Nixon
24.) Monsters Are Due – Doom Service

Doom always put on great rocking shows. They will be at Finnegan’s on Saturday. Comrade are from NY and just put out a really intense album. Hen are playing Friday at 11:30 at Radio Bean I will likely miss the show since I have to work early in the morning and be responsible but have a feeling I will catch up with them soon. Grease are at Jim’s basement tonight. I saw them once and liked them and will catch up with them again. OK, let’s keep rocking.

25.) Drug Laws – SWALE
26.) Bernie Is A Punk – BERN Unit
27.) Game Of Thrones – The Mountain Says No
28.) Sober – Vedora

I miss Vedora but they put on some rocking shows and left us with some great music. Sunday is the last episode of this season’s Game Of Thrones so I thought I should get the Mountain song on now. It was cool that the California rockers who make up BERN rearranged the Ramones song to be about Bernie. Hmm Swale. Well, I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

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.
