I had a great time seeing music last Friday at Radio Bean. I’ve enjoyed the lovely sounds of Bethany Conner Music for a while and was psyched that she was playing in town. I got going a little late and walked in 10 minutes after 7:30 showtime. She was playing a cool cover of Linger as I got in and settled. She played some songs solo and some with her dad Greg Conner, but always lead the songs. Her voice is powerful, she’s a solid guitar player and she has great stage presence. Between songs she engaged the audience and made it a fun evening. She played a cover of Wonderwall then switched to her own songs for a cool version of Can You Love Me Too? She played a song about believing in me that will be from her upcoming album City Full Of Big Kids. She played Drops Of Jupiter and tossed in a little Drift Away at the end. That was the end of the first part of her set, since she and Julia Mark were each doing two alternating sets.

Julia took the stage with a song about the seasons changing called Doors. It was really cool. Her quick and well-articulated lyrics were a delight to follow. She sang a song called The Contract and advised everyone who was considering getting into a relationship to sign one, so you know what’s up. She played a song about palindromes then switched to ukulele for a song about a Lending Library. She moved back to keys for Gemini then played a new song called Mirrors And Windows that was really cool. She closed her set with a song about places you used to live in, but don’t anymore, called The Stranger Is You.

Bethany returned to the stage and regaled us with fun stories and cool tunes. She opened with a song that she wrote about not being able to do laundry and wondering how she would survive in the world. She asked will you jump with me then followed with a cover of Jumper. A song called Anchor was about having someone to hold you steady and about how they call it the real world since you are not allowed to dream. She engaged the group of boys in the back with a song about a boy who dumped her and the back and forth was pretty funny. The song, I Miss You, was pretty good too. She sang about doing something amazing before your life slips away and closed with a cover of Ex’s And Oh’s. It’s always a great time when she plays.

Julia returned to the stage and opened with a song called Sway. She sang about everything you never wanted and Static Electricity. She sang about being A Keeping Person and sang about how matter cannot be created or destroyed. She sang about how your heart is not a bottle of wine and you can’t cork it and leave it. She closed with a song about the end of the world and said she would see us on the moon.

I was pretty wiped out and the next day was set to be a long one, so I ducked out the door quickly and took the lovely walk home. I’m blessed to be able to hear so much amazing music with a mere walk downtown and back.

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I got to see a ton of great music in town last week and there is a lot coming up this week. I want to begin by mentioning that Saturday is the Radio Bean birthday party, so they will have about 100 bands play throughout the day. I recommend stopping in. OK, let’s begin with an artist who played there last week.
