Song before: Art Of Dying – George Harrison

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Last week Hana Zara came to town and played a brilliant show at Radio Bean. She played a lot of new songs and this classic about seeing auras.

1.) Santa Anna – Hana Zara
2.) Hold Me – Maryse Smith
3.) Angela Carter – Cricket Blue
4.) My Heart – Francesca Blanchard

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. Cricket opened for Hana last Sunday. They played mostly new songs and did not play that one, but I really like it and wanted to play it for you. OK, this next singer will be at On Tap in Essex tomorrow.

5.) Can You Love Me Too? – Bethany Conner Music
6.) Tiny House – Tom Pearo
7.) California – Ver Sacrum
8.) The Divine Feminine – Ouzkxqlzn
9.) Mama – Ivamae

I love that song about getting advice from your mother. She will be at The Monkey House on Friday and at the Lamp Shop on Tuesday. Ouzkxqlzn will be at ArtsRiot on Saturday with Maryse Smith and others. Ver and Tom will be at the Lamp Shop on Saturday. This next band are from Montreal but will be at the Lamp show with Ivamae on Tuesday.

10.) Be Apart-Break Apart (Give A Little) – Thanya Iyer
11.) Love In The Afternoon – The Thursday Torys
12.) Faded Hollow – The Cush
13.) It’ll Be OK – Let’s Whisper

That song is so cheery that I want to play it all the time. I was due. Great new song from The Cush. The Torys are at SideBar tonight. Iyer were amazing the last time they came to town. I can’t wait to see them again. OK, here is the next song on Black, Blue & White.

14.) Circle K – The New Siberians
15.) Honest Will – The Parts
16.) Gettin High – Heavy Plains
17.) Waiting – ROUGH FRANCIS

Great new song from Francis. Word has it they will be releasing a few songs as a lead up to the new album. Great classic from Plains. Great song from Danny LeFrancois and the band. The Siberians are so great. OK, a cool show happened at Nectar’s last night. Swale played the whole Paranoid album then Surf Sabbath played other Black Sabbath songs. If you listen to this next set and use your imagination you might guess what it was like.

18.) Safe To Say – SWALE
19.) Hand Of Doom – Black Sabbath
20.) Symptom Of The Universe – Surf Sabbath (The High Breaks)
21.) Every Last One Of Us – Swale

Last night was so great. I hope you get a hint of it from that set. OK, let’s keep rocking.

22.) Never Cry Halo – Alice Austin
23.) Crazy – Clever Girls
24.) The Anchor – Carraway
25.) Nowhere Feels Like Home – Fire The Cannons

Cannons rocked us in the early 00’s. Great new classic from Carraway. Crazy is such a great love song. Alice helped make out town sound great in the 90’s and is still making great music. OK, let’s keep rocking.

26.) Once More With Apathy – Mr. Doubtfire
27.) Prime – Black Rabbit
28.) If You Lie – The Mountain Says No
29.) Jackbooted Thugs (Have All The Best Drugs) – Anders Parker.

That is such an epic song. Those last three were from live at Robot Dog Studio sessions. Two were from this year and Rabbit were in last December. Well, I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

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?

Quick snapshot of tonight   Leave a comment

I just got home from seeing music tonight. Radio Bean did not have a drummer or bass player. But ,I got to hear a lot of cool George Harrison songs, like Aaron Flinn doing a solo acoustic version of Beware of Darkness, Joe Adler singing a killer Give Me Love (Peace on Earth), the guys on uke’s, 12 stings, and 12 string ukes doing Isn’t it a Pity. Wow. The wrap up with most everyone, including Linda Bassick doing a Subterranean Homesick Blues impression, pulling back the lyric cards, for the various Eastern Gods referenced in My Sweet Lord. Hmm, so many great performances! Aaron’s solo on While My Guitar, will stay with me for a while.

Ryan Ober opened solo electric with a song I did not catch, the Roll Over Beethoven
Nowa Crosby and Franky Andreas used ukelele’s, a 12 string acoustic, and something that looked like a large 12 string mandolin. They played If not for you, Isn’t it a Pity, and Wah Wah
Josh Glass on keys, Linda Bassick on backing vocals and guitar at times, Kirk Flanagan, and Aaron Flinn played Something, While My Guitar Gently Weeps (with a killer solo from Aaron).
Joe Adler came up for Handle with Care, a couple from Revolver including a really tight version of Taxman. Give Me Love (Peace on Earth) sounded great with Joe’s deep voice.

There was lots more too

Vedora Manhattan Pizza May 3, 2013

Vedora Manhattan Pizza May 3, 2013

Quote of the Day   Leave a comment

From the Feb. 25, 2013, edition of “Viewpoint.”

John Fugelsang:

Cardinal Keith O’Brien, the most senior Catholic official in Britain, is abruptly resigning amidst allegations of “inappropriate acts.” Now, when I heard that news the first thing I thought was, “Oh my God, not again.” At this point, letting your son be an altar boy is like letting your daughter date Chris Brown for the second time.

But it turns out, Cardinal O’Brien’s actually accused of making unwanted sexual advances towards fully grown adult priests. One seminarian claims O’Brien offered to give him a full tour of the rectory back in 1980.

At this point, it seems almost kind of quaint to hear of a priest hitting on someone old enough to shave. But O’Brien has also called homosexuality immoral, he’s against gay adoption, and says marriage equality is “harmful to the physical, mental and spiritual well-being of those involved.” As opposed to celibacy. Once again, a Catholic who says, “Hate the sin, love the sinner,” is revealed to really hate the sinner but kind of dig the sin.

So, now O’Brien is out and this means he won’t be able to vote for the new pope at the papal conclave, also known as “Vatican Idol.” You know who does get to vote for the new pope, my friends? Cardinal Roger Mahony, who, like Benedict when still an archbishop, shielded pedophiles and moved them to new parishes.

Do you follow the logic here? Hit on some guy 30 years ago, no pope vote. Protect child rape, cast your ballots.

Add this to reports of widespread corruption within the Vatican — a secret cabal of gay priests, or as some call them, priests; claims the Vatican bank is laundering money for the Italian mob; the pope’s butler leaking documents in the Vatileaks scandal, doing time in the Vatican jail (they have a jail, by the way), then somehow being pardoned and now he’s allowed to live in the Vatican with his wife upon his release? After that? This is like an episode of “Vatican Abbey,” and it helps that many of these men already dress like Maggie Smith.

Plus, Connecticut Monsignor Kevin Wallin is accused of operating a meth ring and owning an adult entertainment store he used to launder his money. Yes, it seems almost wholesome at this point, from breaking bread to “Breaking Bad.”

Yet, the Vatican still thinks the church is going to be saved by a new pope, maybe someone from Africa or South America, but still a fundamentalist right-wing clone.

No, my friends. If you want to restore the church as the world leader in fighting poverty, war and social injustice, the next pope has got to be a nun. We need Sister Mary Pissed Off of the Immaculate Ass-Whuppin’ to come into the Vatican and clean up a man-made mess.

Of course, that won’t happen. The Vatican is on a one-way mission to being a third world church, and who called it? The famous Catholic whose birthday we’re celebrating today, George Harrison. In “Vatican P2 Blues,” he wrote about the pope selection process:

Now how come no one really noticed

Puff of white smoke knocked me out

The truth is hiding, lurking, banking

Things they do at night

It’s quite suspicious to say the least.

Thanks, George — talking to you, Rome. A female pope is your chance to man up and move into the 21st century. I know you don’t want to let go of the all-male clown car the Vatican has become, but as ex-Catholic George once said, all things must pass.
