Song before Take A Long Line – Angel City

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It’s been cold outside so let’s play the seasonally appropriate next song from the Grim Work album, that I’m playing all the way through, song after song, week after week.

1.) Baby, Let My Money Keep You Warm – Milton Busker And The Grim Work
2.) Hey You! – Jesse Taylor
3.) Running To The Mirror – Alice Austin
4.) Fire And Oil – Peg Tassey MUSIC

Let’s send lots of good wishes out to Peg. She had surgery today and made it through fine, but let’s send a little healing energy anyway. Great song from Alice’s newest EP Dirt And Helicopters. Cool new song from Jesse and a lovely song about working too much and letting your money enjoy the life that you should be enjoying, but you can’t ’cause you have to work all the time. It’s a very American song. OK, let’s rock. This band are playing tomorrow at The Monkey House.

5.) Sky – The Nancy Druids
6.) Sit Right Down – Ryan Ober and The Romans
7.) Dragged Around The Universe – Queen Tangerine
8.) Loser – SWALE

Such a great song from such a great band. Don’t we all feel dragged around the universe sometimes. QT only played for a year or so, but put out a terrific album. Ryan and his band will join the Druids and Happy Spangler at the Monkey tomorrow and that should be a great show. OK, it’s almost Christmas time. I’ll play a bunch of holiday songs next week, but I’ll ease my way in with a few songs about red and green.

9.) Ruby Red – Aaron Flinn
10.) Grass Is Always Greener – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
11.) Green Apple Girl – Dave Jarvis Band
12.) My Red – The Lavas

I caught the Lavas at Club Toast one night and they were awesome. Cool song from Dave. Great song by Phil and the band. Lovely song from Aaron. OK, here’s another song about red, and fine, I’ll break down, here are a couple of Christmas songs.

Cool rocker from Doom. They will be at Gloom Garden on Monday. Great rocker from the Blondes. ZT rocked us hard in the ’90’s. Francis are playing their 10 year anniversary show at the Monkey House on Saturday. They are such wonderful people and such a great band. We’re lucky to have them. OK, this song is not about red.

20.) It’s Purple And It Sparkles – Zola Turn
21.) A Different Machine – Elephants of Scotland
22.) Winter Bender – Jessica Rabbit Syndrome
23.) Terrarium – Vedora

Lovely song from Vedora. Seasonally appropriate song form Jessica. I had a tricky situation at work recently, but we all took a deep breath, figured out a plan to move forward, and executed it nicely. I think that’s a good path to take in this busy stressful holiday season. OK, let’s keep rocking.

I had a great time seeing music a couple of Saturdays ago. I had one show in mind and saw a couple that lined up nicely with it. I got out of work and had a little time to settle, then took the short walk over to Junktiques Collective. They are an antiques store who have a party every year to celebrate their birthday. They promised lots of music, so I had to stop in.

The normally cluttered store was mostly empty, except for a myriad of collectables on the wall shelves and ceiling. A group of players were in a circle jamming out some polka music I think they were calling themselves the Junktiques band but they were definitely there to celebrate Brechtoberfest. They sang a song called the giveaway song and said that the band was all about diversity. They played a lot of music that I did not go but seemed like it was from a time long ago. They played with styles a little, and overall had an eastern European Gypsy Mariachi vibe. Phin joined in the fun by juggling for a while. It was a fun set.

Soon after Jason sat at the drums and his son plugged in his guitar. I think they called themselves Pick Shredder and Stick Shredder, They rocked out a couple of surf rock instrumentals that were quite fun. It looks like the next generation of musicians is on its way.

Since it was his party, Phin took center stage and recited the poem The Devil And Billy Markham. A guitar player thew in a few quiet licks and the whole presentation was fun.

Soon after that, my watch said it was time to go and I took the shorter than usual walk down to Light Club Lamp Shop. I got in and settled and Milton Busker And The Grim Work began their album release show. With a lush acoustic rock sound they find notes that just bring you up into a happy place. I settled into the show with a smile. They opened with The Basement Song then rocked out Glad To See You Go. They shone beauty into the room with That Person Aside You then spoke about the result of working too much on Baby Let My Money Keep You Warm. The next song was a bit of a Lost Cause then they sang about Jesus In Chains. They sang about letting you down then added some extra weight with 16 Tons Of Gold and Gravity. They bopped their way through Let’s then let loose the gorgeous new song about stars. They sang don’t let me down then ripped out a super-fast Eleanor Rigby. They sang about the Devil’s Hand then played a cool cover I did not know. Ordinary Day started and ended as Milton solo, but the band ripped up the late middle section. They played a song for the internet, then told us about all of the things they have done. We clapped as they stomped and sang there is nothing we can’t do. That was going to end the show but the large audience demanded another. They sang a cool song about dark matter and called it a night.

I headed out quick and took the long walk over to Radio Bean. Jesse Taylor was on and rocking with her band. They had a slow bluesy inviting pop sound. I caught four songs and really enjoyed them. The last was a rocker called Hey You that is pretty cool. I’ll have to check the band out again soon.

I had to work in the morning so I headed towards home, but had to take one more musical chance. I wandered back to Junktiques and made my way into the packed room. Barbacoa were on and rocking hard. Everyone was dancing and having a great time. Phin even danced on his counter. The band were in middle of the instrumental jam that fell into Secret Agent Man and their dark surf sound was wonderful. They finished up then dove into Love Potion #9. They mixed up their trademark instrumentals with originals with words such as the fun version of Dragonfly. They tossed in classics like Stepping Stone, Country Roads, and I Wanna Be Sedated. Everyone was having a great time and it was a fantastic rock and roll vibe. I caught about 10 songs before they called it a night.

I headed out quickly and took the short walk home. It was another incredible night of music in our town.

I had a great time seeing music Friday night at Radio Bean. It was a snowy day but I had plenty of time to get home and settled for a moment before taking the lovely walk downtown for the 10pm show. The night began with Jackie and Eric from The Leatherbound Books. Jackie told the story about how the first song often was sung in the present tense but an older version recognized the challenges of the moment with a hopeful eye to the future. In that spirit her strong and gorgeous voiced filled the room with Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas. They followed with a great version of Joni Mitchell’s River, then closed their set with an original about how it’s OK to feel sad at Christmas, It had poignant and funny lyrics and a wonderful yuletide fiasco reference. It seemed like everyone in the room could relate.

Up next Linda Bassick and Patrick McAndrew were joined by Jesse Taylor and they rocked out a fun Santa Claus Is Coming To Town. They gave it a little Springsteen ending that made the crowd smile. Silver Bells sounded sweet and Let It Snow was just lovely. They wrapped the set on a high note with Jungle Bell Rock.

The final band had Jackie on Bass and vocals, Houston on drums, Johnnie Day Durand on musical saw and glockenspiel, Aya Inoue on guitar and vocals and Samara Lark Brown on electric ukulele and vocals. They opened with Little Drummer Boy and the Pa rum pum pum pums were especially cool. Samara and Aya sang most of the songs, and both sounded great, but when they sang together it was even nicer. When Jackie joined it it was nicer still. They played a fun version of Blue Christmas but towards the end Jackie started singing White Christmas and blended the words perfectly into the melody. It was impressive, and Johnnie’s saw work only made it more magical. Jackie took lead vocals for a strong version of Christmas (Baby Please Come Home) that filled the room with joy. Samara arranged a darker minor key version of Carol Of The Bells that was very cool. They rocked out a lively version of Holiday Road from the Vacation movies that made everyone smile. Samara began singing O Holy Night. It got more amazing when Aya joined in and more amazing still when Jackie entered the mix. Do You Hear What I Hear sounded great and they followed with a rocking version of Happy X-Mas (War Is Over). They kept the pace in full rock mode for I Wish It Was Christmas Today to close the night.

It was a little late and I had to work a little early in the morning, so I quickly headed out and bounced home full of holiday cheer.
