I had a great time seeing music around Burlington a couple of Saturdays ago. My friend Lisa Lavigne Tejeda was back in Vermont for the day and we made plans to meet up. She wanted to go see some music, and it was a day full of possibilities. In the last few weeks, since I do a local music radio show every Thursday and write about music a lot, several bands have contacted me about their shows in town. Three of them were playing that night.

I worked until 5, had a bit of time to hang out then headed to Light Club Lamp Shop. Loida & Lenahan were on stage and sounded enchanting as I tiptoed into the room and quietly ordered a drink. With keys and vibraphone the instrumental duo had a nice flow to their music. Julian Loida left the stage and Kelly Lenahan played a beautiful song on keys. She left after that one and Julian played a little Bach for Bachtober. He followed with a song in the style of synesthesia called Easter Trance that was magical. Kelly returned after that and they closed with a song lead by sweet keys over a quiet drone that may be called You’ll Be Missed. They were really good.

I took the long walk over to Radio Bean and ran into Lisa and Abraham. We hung out as Serena Jost took the stage with her cello and began to sing. I think the first song was It’s A Delight, since it sounded familiar. Either way, it was really cool. Her songs had a nice strength to them as she continued on and looked for a shooting star. She sang about being in the garden then played a Molly Drake cover called Happiness. She switched to guitar and brought up Dan Macklin (sp?) to help her sing the next one. I think it was about mysteries and walking in open doors.

We took off after that song and headed to Juniper at Hotel Vermont. Josh Glass and Julia Beerworth were joined by Tim Swanson on fiddle, and they played some gently beautiful songs. They played a song about how you may see me tomorrow then one that went by in the blink of an eye. A cover of Dylan’s One More Cup Of Coffee had a nice dark edge then they played a Julia song about taking he dog for one last drive before putting it down. They played a great version of Josh’s song New York My Lovely then they played another Dylan cover that I think was Tomorrow Is A Long Time. They played another sweet Julia song called Wonder then Tim sang a song about Cassie. Josh sang a nice cover of Blackbird and they closed the set with Neil Young’s Helpless and the end section of LayLa. The whole set was very nice.

We zipped out the door and headed back to the Bean and kicked it up a notch as Barbacoa were on stage ripping it up. Kirk Flanagan drove the bass hard, Bobby Hackney Jr. drove the drums hard and Bill Mullins effortlessly let loose stinging guitar chords and sang some fun songs. They were playing a ferocious surf rock jam as we settled in. They followed with a cool version of Dragonfly and followed that with Mighty Have Fallen. I think they said that was the first time Bobby ever played it and he made it sound great, since he is so amazing. They went back to the surfing for a Sergio Leone sounding song with a whip snap ending. They tossed in a fun version of Love Potion #9 then played a song about when I rule the world. They played another great instrumental then pulled out Sweet Child O’ Mine. Someone yelled pulp fiction and they launched into Misirlou. They played it into If I Was A Rich Man then a full version of I Wanna Be Sedated, then brought it back to Dick Dale. They kept the uncommon sting of covers coming with You’re So Vain and Country Roads. They played a couple more cool songs and called it a night. It’s always a great time when they play.

Lisa and Abraham left at one point, but I hung out and soon it was time for Freak Dream. With an intense swirling visual background, the electronic rocking duo played a fierce show. The songs had a power and freakishness and I really enjoyed their set. They wrapped the night with a song about getting out and I left shortly after the final note.

What a great night of music in our town.
