Tonight’s local music radio show on WBKM 107.1FM can be heard over the air on both sides of the Champlain Valley or streamed from the Facebook page link above. It will run from 9-11pm US Eastern time and will go as follows.

Song before: First We Take Manhattan (live) – Leonard Cohen

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I want thank Higher Ground for sponsoring our station. They’ve got a huge show with Kat Wright releasing her new album By My Side tomorrow. I want to begin tonight with the many reports of bullying and swastika painting and acts of intimidation that have been happening since the election. We need to investigate every incident and call people out on their mean language and horrible actions. It’s time to look at ourselves as a country and encourage our good nature and step past the darker elements in our soul. It’s time to acknowledge that we’ve got problems.

1.) You’ve Got Problems – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band
2.) Bird On The Sea – The New Siberians
3.) Are We Mad? – David Rosane & The Zookeepers
4.) Children Of The Stars – Madaila

We are going to have to remember that we are all in this together and do our part to add positive actions to our community. After all, we all live under the same stars. David Rosane has written some great post election analysis of what’s going on and what can be. He also writes great songs. The Siberians sing about love saving us and we will need to keep that in mind. Great new song from Kat and the band. The story of how that came together is pretty great. OK, here comes the last song from Song For My Double. I’ll be off next week for Thanksgiving and in December I will start a new album to play all the way through, song after song, week after week, until it is done.

5.) No One – Invisible Homes
6.) Shy Spiders – Villanelles
7.) 2000 – The Pants
8.) Hey, That’s No Way To Say Goodbye (live) – Leonard Cohen

A lot of local musicians have been saddened by the death of Leonard. He will be sorely missed but the staggering body of work that he left us can come alive every time someone plays one of his songs or reads one of his poems. There was a beautiful gathering of local artists on Monday at Light Club Lamp Shop and that can happen whenever we want to make it happen again. Kirk Flanagan did a great version of Hey at that show, and he also played one Leon Russel song. Pants were a classic band from Burlington’s ’90’s. Spiders is a modern classic. Great song, and album, from Homes. Here’s another Burlington classic.

9.) You Don’t Like Me, Do Ya – Pinhead
10.) Wally Rides The Ferry – Zoot Wilson
11.) Destiny Waits – Bud & Budd ~ The Kind Buds
12.) New Atlantis – Aaron Flinn

Great song by Aaron. He played a couple of Cohen songs on Monday. Bud Johnson and Budd are so kind and great performers. Zoot used to rock out town in the ’80’s and Pinhead played back then too. Those songs have been around for a while but this next one is brand new.

13.) Waiting – Mr. Doubtfire
14.) The Interrogator (Enhanced) – Milton Busker
15.) Lean In – When Particles Collide
16.) Blue Light Shine – Gabrielle Douglas and the Dwellers

We will all have to shine our loving lights a lot in the next four years. Particles are out and about fighting sexism and rocking our world. Hopefully, Milton’s song will not be as on the mark as it seems like it might be. Great new song from Doubtfire. This next band are at The Monkey House tomorrow. Let’s take a walk around town with Diane Sullivan and Becky.

17.) Yayo – Dirty Blondes
18.) Hold Me Tight – The Decentz
19.) Diamond Days – The Lavas
20.) Undecided – Rocketsled

Rocketsled will get the band back together next January. I loved that one Lavas album. The Decentz played back in the early ’80’s. OK, let’s keep rocking.

21.) Comm To Space – ROUGH FRANCIS
22.) Can’t Feel It – Vetica
23.) That’s When I Reach For My Revolver – Ninja Custodian
24.) Little French Earthquakes – Phil Yates & The Affiliates

Phil was at the Cohen show too. I love that song by him and the band. Ninja played in the late ’80’s and early ’90’s and always rocked the house with that one. I love that Vetica song. Such a classic from Francis. Here’s another classic from the ’90’s.

25.) Poem For Torin (Ethan’s Stoned) – Peg Tassey MUSIC
26.) Great Escape – Jeremy Gilchrist – Singer-Songwriter
27.) My Hero, The Enemy – Gregory Douglass

Great song from Gregory. Jeremy Gilchrist played at the Cohen show and Peg Tassey was there too, but just to listen. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. I’m off next week but will be back to do it again soon.

outro

Songs after:
Arc Of the Curve – Fish
Epic/Pointless Endeavors – John Wesley
Strontium Burning – TILT
Alone – Children in Paradise
Dance Me To The End Of Love (live) – Leonard Cohen
New York My Lovely – Joshua Glass Music

I’m heading to the Flynn tonight with my brother to see Lyric Theater do Tommy so I had to record tonight’s local music radio show earlier today. It will broadcast on 107.1FM on both sides of the Champlain Valley. You can also stream it from the WBKM Facebook page. It will run from 9-11pm US Eastern Time tonight, November 10, 2016. It will go as follows:

Song before: Anytime – jane siberry

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds of Burlington. I want to begin by thanking Higher Ground for sponsoring our station. They have lots of cool shows happening this week. Well, election night has come and gone and many of us are worried about the results. It was nice to sit down and read so many comments on Facebook today. There are a lot of wonderful smart caring compassionate people in our community who can express positive hopes and dreams of working and being together even though we are worried and uncertain. Your staggering optimism buoys me. Let’s begin with a song about looking towards the positive things in life.

1.) The Light – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band
2.) If You Get Lost – SWALE
3.) Fades To Grey – Aram Bedrosian
4.) Brothers And Sisters – Joe Adler

That is such a huge and gorgeous song. I wanted to play it because we can all use a huge amount of beauty in our world. I want to send that out to my brother Ken. That’s a new song from the staggeringly talented Aram. I played Lost for the same reason I played Brothers. Such a great new song from Kat Wright featuring some fantastic guitar work from Bob Wagner. Here is the next song from Song For My Double.

5.) One On The Skyline – Invisible Homes
6.) Not I – Andriana Chobot
7.) Amazing Journey/Sparks (live at Leeds) – The Who
8.) See Me Feel Me/Listening To You – The Who

Lyric Theater is doing Tommy this weekend so I wanted to play a couple of the lovely Who songs. With Andriana and Marie Claire Johnson in the band, it’s going to be great. Cool song from Homes. Here is a song from when Marie sang and played rock guitar.

9.) Trading Bullets – Fire The Cannons
10.) Two Weeks (’til The End Of The World) – Grand
11.) There’s A Problem – Mr. Doubtfire
12.) Monsters Are Due – Doom Service

Doom and Doubt are playing Saturday at The Monkey House where Doubt will release their new EP. Doubt are also playing tonight at Jim’s Basement with Grand. FTC were so great. I went out to Nectar’s to watch the election results Tuesday and saw all of these bands.

13.) Windigo – Crazyhearse
14.) Old North Ender – James Kochalka
15.) Chuck Berry – Dino Bravo VT
16.) Ornan – Dirty Blondes

Everyone played great sets and rocked hard at the show. Most of those songs were played. Last weekend was the Radio Bean birthday and I saw these bands and many more.

17.) Flight Of The Alligator – Cave Bees
18.) Waiting For You – Swale
19.) Lowdown – Vedora
20.) Old Man – Silver Bridget

Bridget sounded so sweet. Vedora did not play but Caroline Marie fronts them and her solo set sounded kind of like that. Swale and Bees played those songs. Speaking of Birthdays, tomorrow is our birthday at WBKM.ORG and we are throwing a party at Nectar’s. We will have The Joe Moore band, Castle Creek, and Seth Yacovone will play a set of Dylan songs with the band calling themselves The Jokerman. Since many local artists play this song, I think it’s appropriate to play.

21.) One More Cup Of Coffee (Valley Below) – Bob Dylan
22.) Cowgirl In The Sand – Seth Yacovne and friends calling themselves Real Old & Insane Doneky

That was from a previous WBKM birthday party. Seth always rocks so it’s going to be a good time. This next song has been on my mind lately.

23.) Last American Right – The Cush
24.) Last Night – Carraway
25.) Children Of The Stars – Madaila

I’ve been listening to their new album Traces and loving that song. I’m pretty pleased with that new Carraway song too. Hmmm, the Cush. Well, I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we? Farewell.

26.) Sayonara – Black Rabbit

Songs after:
The Gathering – Fish
No Superman – TILT

Presence – Satori Bob

Tonight’s local music radio show on 107.1FM WBKM can be heard from the Facebook link, will run from 9-11pm US Eastern time tonight, and will go as follows:

Song before: It Ain’t Easy – David Bowie

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I want to thank Higher Ground for sponsoring us at the station. They have a packed week of great bands. I just got a copy of the new album by Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band called By My Side. It’s really good so let’s dive right into it.

1.) Come Dance – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band
2.) This Land Is Your Land – VT artists
3.) We Shall Overcome – Bernie Sanders and 30 Vt Musicians

That was recorded in the 1980’s but still sounds so relevant today. With the upcoming election, if we can’t vote for Bernie, we can still follow his advice. Please vote and please don’t vote for the clown. OK, it’s time for the next song on the Invisible Homes album Song For My Double that I’m playing all the way through week after week until it’s done.

4.) The Clown – Invisible Homes
5.) Who’s Your Fool? – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band
6.) Grounded – Invisible Jet
7.) Jazzmaster – Made by Robots

I caught Robots over the summer at Jazzfest and really liked them and have been wanting to play some of their music. Jet were a classic band from Burlington’s illustrious ’90’s. Another great new Kat song. OK, so today is my Mom’s birthday. I spent some time this morning with her and my brother. She really likes this classic Vermont singer, so this one goes out to you Mom.

8.) The Power Of The Word – Jon Gailmor
9.) 15 Steps – Maryse Smith
10.) Threaded – Jeremy Gilchrist – Singer-Songwriter
11.) Monarch Butterfly – Jenny Montana

Jenny used to play that song in the 2000’s though I have not heard from her in a while. It’s such a fun song. Jeremy Gilchrist is raising money to make his new album Threaded. If you like that song, please consider supporting him by pre-purchasing it. Maryse still comes back to play now and then and Jon is a local legend. This next band release their new album Traces tomorrow (I knew it was soon when I recorded the show but did not realize it’s out tomorrow).

12.) 1 – Madaila
13.) Nature – Madaila
14.) You Got Problems – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band
15.) I Do – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band
16.) Woods – Madaila

Those were the opening closing songs from Madaila’s Traces album and two more great new Kat songs. Yesterday, I went to Nectar’s and saw Sue Minter, Peter Welch, Pat Leahy, and Al Franken. Al was very serious and very funny and really wants us to go out and vote. Before and after the speeches was a tremendous show of music from Bob Wagner and friends. Here is a song from Bob’s other non indomitable band to give you a hint about what they sounded like yesterday.

17.) Why Does Love Got To Be So Sad? – Book ‘Em Blues Band
18.) The Light – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band

Another great new Kat Wright song. Yes, Bob really is that great of a guitar player. Tuesday is election day and there is a show at Nectar’s that night so everyone can go out and party and not have to be alone, whichever way it works out. Here are a few of the bans that will be here.

19.) The Magic Robot – James Kochalka
20.) Hermaphroditus – Rue M.
21.) A Bottle Of Whiskey Later – Crazyhearse
22.) Oh Dirty Blondes – Dirty Blondes

If you are looking for music next Tuesday check out The Dirty Blondes Present: Exit Poll 2016 at Nectar’s. With those fun bands, and more, it’s going to be a great show. This next song has been running through my head all week. I hope you enjoy it.

23.) Black, Blue and White – The New Siberians
24.) Random Earth – Elephants of Scotland
25.) Sleepwalker – 1881

That song has been running through my head a lot lately too. Great song from Elephants. Our Earth is not random, it’s the only one we’ve got, so let’s do all that we can to take care of it, and us by default. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we? See ya, ta ta, farewell….

26.) Sayonara – Black Rabbit
outro

Songs after:
13th Star – Fish
Who Are These Gods? – Dam Kat
Hand Of Doom – Black Sabbath
Sat In Your Lap – Kate Bush
Cascade – Andriana Chobot

intro

From our small city to the great big world these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I want to thank Higher Ground for sponsoring the station and for filling the town with music this coming Saturday and Sunday when Grace Potter headlines the GPN festival. It’s a chilly night in town and the moon is close to full. Considering that this first band played in town on Saturday, this is the most appropriate song I could think of to open with.

1.) Harvest Moon – Silver Bridget
2.) Paperclip Chains – Let’s Whisper
3.) The Interrogator (Enhanced) – Milton Busker
4.) The Great Forgetter – The New Siberians

Yet another great song from the Siberians new album Black, Blue and White. Such a happy pop song from Milton, give or take the lyrics. Great song from Colin Nicholas Clary‘s band. I love Bridget’s sound. OK, let’s play the next song on Song For My Double. This is such a great song.

5.) Above The Frequency – Invisible Homes
6.) Oversoul – Daniel Waterhouse (Dan Murphy)
7.) Unraveling Clouds – Black Ox
8.) Bidets And Confused – Sad Turtle

It was cool to finally see Turtle at the Art Hop on Friday. Ox are a new band from Cameo Harlot‘s Cam Barrows and have some cool instrumental songs. Great song from Dan. I love that song from Homes. I missed this next band when they played the Art Hop but I bet it was a great show.

9.) Stop – REDadmiral
10.) Ricky The Rider – The Mountain Says No
11.) Womb With A View – Heavy Plains
12.) Hit – Blue Button

BB kick off GPN on Saturday and always rock. It was great to see Plains at the Art Hop on Friday. Same for Mountain. This next band play GPM on Sunday.

13.) Picture – And The Kids
14.) Purpose And Object – The Contrarian
15.) TFAY – Elephants of Scotland
16.) The Big One – The High Breaks

17.) The Mime – Joe Adler
18.) Edible – SWALE
19.) Little French Earthquakes – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
20.) Barstools – Abbie Morin

Abbie is playing at Higher Ground next Wednesday. Phil and at least one affiliate are playing Radio Bean on Saturday. Swale are playing Light Club Lamp Shop tomorrow. They will be joined by Spurs and The Middle Eight for their reunion show. Here is a song by that band who feature Ariel, Tyler, and Daniel Bolles.

21.) Put You Down – The Middle Eight
22.) Emptiness – Vedora
23.) Kids – Wren Kitz
24.) The Feeling Is Strange – Binger

Binger played Nectar’s last night. Wren and Caroline O’Connor were at Light Club Lamp Shop tonight, but I missed them since I was doing this show. It should be fun to see Eight play again. This next band play GPN on Saturday and played a huge show at the Art Hop last Friday.

25.) By My Side – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band
26.) Old Man – Silver Bridget

I thought I would end where I began. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

I had great time seeing music Friday night at the Art Hop. There were a ton of great bands playing, and I knew I could not catch them all, but had a few that I thought I really wanted to see. Most ended up playing in the same place. I knew where most of the bands would play but was not sure when they would go on, despite putting a little effort into researching times. I knew I wanted to catch Sad Turtle and they were playing around 6 at the Green Door showcase, but most of the rest of the times were a mystery.

I got out of work, did a quick stop at home, grabbed a half of a sandwich to eat and took the long fast walk to the south end of Burlington. The show location was listed as 4 Howard St and it only took a bit of walking around, and listening, to find the alley behind the building where the show happened. I walked in and The Ramparts were on and playing a groovy tune. I think I completely missed the first song and walked in on the end of the song that mentions without warning. As I settled in they began Spaceship and I recognized it immediately from last Wednesday. I happily settled into the groove and loved it much more than before. The next song had a nice refrain of always be giving and seemed to be about destiny. Since there were lots of bands playing all the sets were short. They wrapped up their fun dancey grooving rock set by being joined by Sareet Rosenstein for a fun cover of Your Love by The Outfield.

During the set break I chatted with some friends and noted the board that listed the bands who would play and their set times. Almost every band that I wanted to see would be right in that alley, so that made it easy.

The set break was fairly quick and soon Sad Turtle took the stage. I had never seen the band but knew most of the players. They play all instrumentals and have some cool grooves punctuated by some rocking guitar and sharp drumming. Lead by the keyboard player, who’s name eludes me, they have an indie rock jam jazz sort of sound and have a nice flow to the music. Jake Styles bass keeps a nice groove while the keys flow along and Justus Gaston rocks out a bit on guitar and the super fun to watch Jeremy Gartner hits each drum beat with dramatic flair. The songs all have fun titles such as The Words Are Colliding And George Is Getting Upset and Detective Norman, and Bidets And Confused. A couple of the songs had some solid rock and roll moments and I enjoyed the six songs that they played. I will have to check them out again soon.

During the set break I wandered through some of the nearby buildings and saw a ton of fantastic paintings and other forms of art. We have a lot of talent in our town.

Up next, Caroline Marie took the stage and played a solo set of electric guitar, her lovely voice, and looped songs. Her music has an elegant style and a beautiful flow. The songs tend to start a bit simple and get more complex as she adds the earlier parts of the song into the loop. By the end of the first song, True, she had such a full sounding song going she put down the guitar and played a gorgeous sax solo into the mix. It sounded fantastic. The second song was similar without the sax and had a refrain of feel my strength. Since the whole show was running 30 minutes late she was going to stop there but they said she could play another one. She triggered a backing track with her on bass and Jane Boxall Percussion on drums and played guitar and sang over it. Fly is such a cool song and sounded great.

During the set break I saw even more art and was even more impressed by the talent in this town.

The Canteens were up next and played some ethereal soft rock songs about whiskey and other things. With Justine Poole on acoustic guitar & vocals & drums, Kelsey Ackerman on violin & vocals, and Michael Sheerin on cello their sound was almost country or Americana but not quite either. Soft rock does not quite describe it either since the sound is mellow and quiet but the songs have a huge strength to them. I really enjoyed listening to the five songs they played. The third song opened with Ackerman playing something in a box that sounded like chimes before the song went into a heavy rocking section and they added a little bit of Chim Chim Cher-ee towards the end. They finished the set with a song about following the rain which had a driving rock ending. I definitely need to check into them soon.

In the next break I ventured into the bar area and said hi to Matthew Stephen Perry. I got a small easy to drink beverage and headed back to the alley quickly.

With a nice dark alley and eerie lighting The Mountain Says No took the stage with a roar. They opened with a killer version of The Bomb. They shifted into the moody and intense Be Like Ryan then went back to full on rock for Restaurant. They rocked another newer one that I don’t fully know yet, but really like, then kept it hard and heavy with You Say You’re Alive. Ricky The Rider kept the party going then they eased up a bit for Blanket’s Fine. They came back at full force for I Know Right and called it a night. They are such a fantastic band and that was another legendary show.

I knew Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band were on behind the Maltex building so I ducked out of the alley, walked down Howard and across Pine st, which had been turned into a pedestrian zone, and without entering the packed tent, caught a song and a half from the band. I was pretty close to the stage and the sound was surprisingly good considering the speakers were not facing me. The band sounded great as they played a smooth easy song that had the refrain of who’s your fool. The song had a long couple of endings and was expertly played.

I headed back to the alley, thinking I had plenty of time. Apparently the set break was super short and I walked in on the last note of the first Zeus Springsteen song. Rats. I settled in as the rock trio made up of singer drummer David Evan, guitarist Chris Farnsworth and bassist Josh Shedaker rocked as hard as Mountain. All of the songs are well written and have a unique flow and are really good. I’m just getting to know them. I loved the first fours songs I saw and loved the fifth, Lights Of Montreal, even more. They wrapped the set with TV On The Radio’s Wolf Like Me and I was happy.

I knew Heavy Plains were playing at Speaking Volumes at some point but did not know when. After Zeus I raced over, and they were on the stage. I walked up fairly close as the band, who were playing in a garage door, looked out at the audience that was shrouded in the darkness of the night. With a brand new rhythm section they had a bit of a different sound, but still brought some rock and roll firepower. I did not recognize any of the 5 songs that I caught but there was some blistering rock and roll and it was so great to see Luke Awtry play some super lead guitar. Hopefully, they will start playing a bunch of shows soon and I’ll really begin to catch their new vibe.

It wasn’t super late at that point, but I had to be at work super early the next day, so I took the long walk home. Despite all the intense rock and roll that I heard all evening, the super bouncy Spaceship ran through my head as I bounded home. That sound is surprisingly addictive.

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I want to thank Higher Ground for sponsoring the station. It’s a bit of a slow week but tomorrow at noon tickets go on sale for The English Beat, if that is of interest. That show is coming up in September. It was so great to hear and see the dynamic songwriting duo of Sean Toohey and Matt Hutton last week at The Monkey House when they were joined by Julia Austin and Ann Mindell when they played as Envy. Let’s begin tonight with a song from Sean and Matt’s last album.

1.) Gold In California – The Red Telephone
2.) Always Monica/Down At The Duck – Chin Ho
3.) Chester Allen – The World Famous Hanglows.

I love the line about what you throw away, to me, is solid gold. That sums up many of the similarities and differences between us all. Nice London Calling reference too. Great couple of songs from Chin. I love that Telephone song. OK, let’s play the next song on the Giant Places album.

4.) The Words Will Show – Lendway
5.) Bloodboy – Barbacoa
6.) Into The Void – Surf Sabbath (The High Breaks)

The Breaks played as Sabbath last night at Nectar’s. Barbacoa opened for Envy last week and played the instrumental surf version of Bloodboy. Envy played it properly when they opened their set. Nice instrumental from Lendway. OK, let’s play some rock and roll with some words.

7.) Tastes Like Nothing – Zola Turn
8.) The Blackout – The Static Age
9.) Running Away From Home – The Snaz
10.) Blue Light Shines – Gabrielle Douglas and The Dwellers

I’ve always thought that was one of the great songs played in Burlington. The Snaz are coming to town for a show at Radio Bean tomorrow and one at The Monkey House on Saturday. I love that song by Static. When I saw them so many years ago it was the first time I saw Bobby Hackney Jr. play drums. He just played with Barbacoa last week at the Envy show and was totally amazing. Great song by Zola. Many years ago The Cush came to Burlington and enchanted us for a few years. They are just about to begin a European tour so let’s celebrate with some of their wonderful music.

11.) Hollow – The Cush
12.) Roll Me – The Cush
13.) Telepathic Headdress – The Cush
14.) Heavy Psych – The Cush

I hope they have a great tour!! One of the cool things about the Envy show last week was catching up with old friends like this guy.

15.) Decide – David Jarvis
16.) Comin’ Home – The Hippnotix
17.) Two Weeks (’til The End Of The World) – Grand
18.) Shy Spiders – Villanelles

Villanelles were just as great a week ago Wednesday as they were the previous three. That night Grand opened for them and were pretty amazing too. Hipp Notix are from New York and, if I’m not mistaken, are from Dave’s neck of the woods. So, this is the week that the Seven Days Daisy awards came out. Daniel Bolles also awarded some special not quite awards called Dandelions. He rightly awarded Villanelles for best rock band and somehow me for local music champion, though fellow nominees such as Luke Awtry, James Lockridge, and Girls Rock Vermont deserved it as much or more. Thanks Dan and 7 Days. Oh, and this next singer and band rightly swept the local popular Daisy votes in a few categories.

19.) By My Side – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band
20.) Bad Oasis – farm
21.) Star – The New Siberians

That is such a great song. I love that Farm song. OK, this next singer is 17 years old but is on her way to become a star.

22.) The Worst Part – Bethany Conner Music
23.) Bury Me – Forest Gray
24.) Our Lady Of The Underground – Anais Mitchell
25.) Time to Get Out – Aaron Flinn and Salad Days

I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

Last night’s local music radio sow on WBKM 107.1FM went as follows:

Song before: Strange Phenomena – Kate Bush

intro

From our small city to the great big word, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Last week I saw a ton of great new music at the Eat More Kale Festival and want to highlight as much of that music as I could track down. I wish I had found more, but did find some treasures like this song:

1.) Not I – Andriana Chobot
2.) Here Comes The Sun – Aaron Flinn
3.) One From Two – Linda Bassick
4.) Kentucky – Cricket Blue

I had a great time seeing Cricket in City Hall Park in Burlington on Friday and loved their version of that song. I don’t have any music by Steady Betty to play, so I thought I’d toss in one of Linda’s songs, since she writes some of the Betty songs. Aaron played a great version of Sun at the kale festival. Andriana was amazing at the kale festival and I love all of her songs, especially that one. OK, let’s play the next song on Giant Places, the album I am playing all the way through, one song per week, until the album is through.

5.) Gone With Eraser – Lendway
6.) Better Off – Haley Jane and the primates
7.) Piano In Every Room – gneiss
8.) Soul Piggy Bank – SWALE

Last week after I played Piano I though ti would mix nicely into Piggy. I think that went quite well. Haley and the band put on an amazing show at the kale fest. I can’t wait for their new album which just got funded through Kickstarter. Hmmm, Lendway. This next band put on an amazing show at the kale festival and their upcoming album is going to be a huge step forward and I can barely wait.

9.) Let’s Move – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band
10.) Strings – Binger
11.) Friends Share Lovers – And The Kids
12.) Shy Spiders – Villanelles

Their new album Blue Heart Attack is easily one of the best albums of the year so far. They will be playing every Wednesday at Nectar’s and I want to catch some of those shows. ATK are at ArtsRiot on Saturday and I hope to be there. I’ve been lucky enough to catch Binger a couple of times lately, including the kale festival, They always seem to play a ripping version of Strings. I cant wait to see Kat Wright and the band play at the waterfront for the July 3rd celebration. They were so stunning at the kale festival. OK, this next singer is playing Nectar’s on Friday.

13.) Better Half – Abbie Morin
14.) I’ve Been Down – Bob Wagner
15.) The Day I Met You – Dirtminers
16.) Stop – REDadmiral

I really wanted to see Admiral release their album Tuesday at Nectar;s but was ill and could not make it. Next time! I just love that old Dirtminers song. Bob is such a wonderful guy and a serious talent in our music scene. That’s a cover and as far as I am concerned, the can play covers or originals or whatever he wants, as long has he keeps playing. He is tremendously talented. Great song from Abbie Gail. OK, let’s keep rocking and then kick up the pace a lot.

17.) Silver And Gold – Waylon Speed!
18.) Stick That In Your Juicebox And Sip It – Better Things
19.) Welcome To The Hellmouth – Doom Service

Doom and Better were set to play Thursday night at The Monkey House but I later heard that Doom had to drop out. I hope everything is well. BT are just a great band and always worth checking out. Waylon are such a classic local band. OK, I’m feeling a bit off and the voice is fading so let’s close tonight with a super long super heavy magnificent piece of art.

20.) Pastoral – Vultures of Cult

I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we? Ta ta. Farewell. See Ya….

21.) Sayonara – Black Rabbit

Songs after: Sunsets On Empire – Fish
