Jesse Taylor at Radio Bean January 29, 2019   Leave a comment

IMG_2066

 

I had a great time seeing music January 29th at Radio Bean. I had been working different crazy hours and had been working on releasing the Live From Robot Dog Studio album, and just hadn’t made it out to see music for a couple of weeks.

I worked earlier in the day and had to work the next day, but walking to the Bean for an 8:30-9:30 show seemed like a reasonable thing to do.

I zipped out the door at the last minute and walked in almost exactly at 8:30 and Jesse Taylor was on stage playing Someone Get Me A Brown Paper Bag. Note to self, always get there early when she plays. I missed the next song as I got settled in but it sounded lovely. There is something gently catchy about her music and her lyrics take you right into the heart of the human condition. She played a song about hoping you enjoyed it and one about brighter days. She sang about getting caught up in other people’s lives then warmed us up with 80 Degrees In October. Like What You See and Waste Of Time are both really cool songs and it was a delight to listen to them. My Brain Is A Liar rang true then she sang about six days time. My noes are bad about the next three songs but I was enchanted for each one. She closed with a rocking Hey You and left us in a happy place.

I hung out and chatted with her for a little bit about the upcoming Robot Dog Studio session that we had scheduled, then took the lovely walk home.

I had a great time seeing music January 15th at Radio Bean. I worked earlier in the day and had to work the next day, but walking to the Bean for an 8:30-9:30 show seemed like a reasonable thing to do.

I zipped out the door at the last minute and walked in almost exactly at 8:30 and Jesse Taylor was on stage playing. She sounded great as I got settled, but I missed what song it was. Note to self, always be early for her shows. She played a cool new song called Adore You then delighted the fairly full room with 80 Degrees In October. She played a song about being a ghost to you and one about never changing. Her stage demeanor was relaxed and friendly and it really helped bring the audience into her lovely songs. She played Like What You See and Waste Of Time from her album, then played a new song about getting caught up in other people’s drama. She played a nice song about brighter days and one about self-doubt called My Brain Is A Liar. She played a quiet and gorgeous song about feeling lost forever then played one about six days time. She played a big bluesy rocker about questioning fears, the rocked out Hey You, which is also from her album. She closed with Someone Get Me A Brown Paper Bag and you could see the lyric connecting with the audience. Everyone was quite impressed.

I did not hang out very long after the show. The walk home was as lovely as usual.

Strangled Darlings at Nectar’s, Jesse Taylor, Nick Awad, Nick Losito, Eva Rawlings & Casey Little at Drink, and White Elephant & Father Figuer at Radio Bean January 12, 2019   Leave a comment

IMG_1960

I had a great time seeing music at Nectar’s and Drink Bar on January 12th. There was a cool rock show happening with two of my favorite bands, but it sold out before I got a ticket. Plan B turned out to be quite lovely.

I got going early and stopped in at Nectar’s for dinner. I hung in the back but couldn’t help notice how much fun Strangled Darlings were. They had an indie folk sound with a kick drum for punctuation. They had fun stage banter in a married couple not really getting along sort of way. A song about when you stand up had a bit of a Talking Heads vibe. A song about buckets of sand had a Dead vibe. The whole show was lots of fun. They played a song about being homeless and living in a van in Walmart parking lots, but then I was done with dinner and the clock said it was time to move on. I’m so glad I spotted in.

IMG_1968

Jesse Taylor

I headed over to Drink and got settled in the bar/performance space they have downstairs. I had seen Jesse Taylor once and kind of liked her songs. I bought her album and listened to it a few dozen times and really began to love her songs. She was on first and I was really psyched. She opened with 80 Degrees in October and I was hooked, along with the rest of the crowd. She followed with Like What You see then played a newer one about adoring you. She followed with my personal favorite, at the moment, Somebody Get Me A Brown Paper Bag. It seemed to hook everyone in the room. She played a fun song about taking a road trip and followed with one about how her brain is a liar. I’m not sure what she closed with, but it was a wonderful set of music.

Nick Awad took the stage next and mixed up playing banjo and guitar. His songs had a quiet strength and connected nicely with the audience. My notes are pretty terrible but I think he sang songs bout being 30 degrees south of freezing and Anita please. He closed with a song called Vodka Sprite that was really fun. I should go see him again sooner than later.

IMG_1971

Nick Awad

Up next, Nick Losito took the stage and fired off the eggshell blues on slide guitar. He’s very talented and threw in a few fun time changes on the young buck blues. A song about shaking them all down had a bit of a train running through sound. He played a few more blues songs then was joined by Sarah Cutler. They sang a couple of fun songs and closed with one about bad relationships called Lonesome Town. They were great.

IMG_1991

Nick Losito and Sarah Cutler

Up next a woman named Eva Rawlings played a set of sultry electro pop soul. Her voice drew me in and I really enjoyed her songs. She sang about being a fool for you and about being all mine. She sang about Pepsi and leaving me alone. She sang about a pretty face and closed with a dance with the devil. I definitely need to get some of her music soon.

IMG_1993

Eva Rawlings

The whole event was organized by Casey Little and he took the stage next. You could hear the heavy rock influence in the sound of the songs and they remained strong despite the acoustic setting. He started off nice and bluesy with a song about cigarettes then sang about what you deserve. All of his songs were good and I really enjoyed his set. At the end he brought up a friend to sing a couple of songs.

 

IMG_2011

Casey Little

There were more bands on the bill but I still wanted to make one more stop. I headed over to Radio Bean and a band called White Elephant were on and rocking. I just caught a couple of songs and they were cool.

I hung out for a bit then Father Figuer hit the stage. Their songs range from a whisper to a scream and have a lot of tension and release. I basked in the gentle joy and smiled as they brought the music to tremendous heights then let it ease off. I’m not even sure how many songs they played but I was blissfully happy for every note.

When the last note faded, I took the lovely walk home. I missed a lot of great music but caught a lot of great music. That’s how it goes in Burlington.
