Song before: The Sound Of A – Alice Cooper

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Let’s begin with a local classic.

1.) North Hyde Park – Hover
2.) Crazy – Clever Girls
3.) What’s To Become Of The Meaning Of Love – Daniel Romano
4.) Beach Day – Looms
5.) Automatic Sweetheart – Hammydown

Last Saturday I got to see Clever Girls play at The Monkey House with Looms and Hammydown and last night I saw Clever Girls with Daniel Romano at ArtsRiot. Tomorrow Clever Girls are playing at the Tarrant Art Gallery as part of Exhibitionists: Clever Girls at 5pm. OK, let’s play the last song on the Action EP.

6.) Everyday Weekend – 1881
7.) Kick Rocks – And The Kids
8.) Another Day Closer To Nothing – Grand
9.) Epic – Laureate

Laurieate will come visit us on Sunday for a show at the Monkey House. I haven’t seen Grand for a while and hope to catch up with them soon. They are such a fun band. The Kids are at Higher Ground tonight and always put on a great show. Great song from 1881. I hope you enjoyed listening to all of the songs on their Light’s, Camera, and Action EP’s. I’ll start a new album to play song after song week after week, nest week. These next two bands will be at the Monkey House on Sunday too.

10.) From Here – The Red Summer Sun
11.) Ex-Files – Better Things
12.) Surf Showdown – The High Breaks
13.) The Territory – Hana Zara

Hana has a new album together called Where Amanda Is King. She just launched a Kickstarter to raise money to get it mastered and printed. She writes such great songs and I’m sure the new album will be terrific. The Breaks played at the Summervale festival in the Intervale earlier today. Great songs from Better and Summer. Here is a cool song that I have not heard in a while.

14.) Think I’ll Stay – Great Western
15.) Breathing In – The Hero Cycle
16.) Somewhere Far – The Red Telephone
17.) The Drone – The Cush

The Cush have played many stunning versions of that song in our town over several years. Great song from Telephone who evolved out of Envy. Hero appeared for a year or so and went away but left us with some great music. I have not seen Western in ages but they put on some great shows in the 2010’s. OK, let’s keep rocking.

18.) Weapons Factory – The Wards
19.) Gas And Oil – Gas And Oil
20.) Alcohol Injection – Lord Silky
21.) The Path – Savage Hen

It’s been a while since I’ve seen the Hen. I may have to go check them out in a couple of weeks. Silky just put out a new album and play stunning rock shows. Gas was Beano Parker’s side project and the Wards were his main band. OK, let’s keep rocking.

22.) An Obscene Amount Of Debt – Sink or Swim
23.) The Wolves Are Coming – Suburban Samurai
24.) We Need Bigger Knives – As We Were
25.) Welcome To The Hellmouth – Doom Service

Doom have been playing some shows but I have not caught up with them in a while. I’ll have to change that sometime. As used to play some great punk for us but I have not seen them around lately. Samurai were in town a couple of weeks ago. Swim just played out west. OK, let’s keep rocking.

26.) Carnage – Black Rabbit
27.) Jackbooted Thugs (Have All The Best Drugs) – Anders Parker
28.) Song About The Ocean – Dino Bravo VT
29.) Freeway – David Rosane & The Zookeepers

Great song form David and the band who are playing all over Vermont right now, and are recording a new album. Great new classic from Dino. Anders will be in Montpelier on Friday and at ArtsRiot on Saturday. Rabbit always rock. Oh, and I had to play Freeway to set up the next two songs. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

Vultures of Cult and Lord Silky at the Monkey House October 15, 2013   Leave a comment

I had a good time at The Monkey House last night. It’s been a while since I’ve had a good metal outing. I caught a ride with Nathan Curtis, and we arrived at quarter of 10 with Vultures of Cult onstage. Their super heavy dirge riffs seem straight forward, but had a lot of subtle time changes. It’s like you could rock into the groove, but really had to listen to see where it was going. They weren’t super fast, but were magnificently heavy. The vocals were screamed at near cookie monster level. Both guitar players shared the singing/screaming duties and the rhythm section ran through the changes with sledgehammer precision. They were really good, and I had a great time.

Lord Silky followed and kept the heaviness flowing. That and the beer. The singer, guitar, bass and drums quartet were a bit more solid metal, than the Vultures dirge and every note was an assault on the senses. Think big burly bearded men whipping the crowd into a mosh pit frenzy. PBR cans were crushed, baptizing everyone in the packed club, except those back by the pool tables. T-shirts were ripped off and thrown to the audience, and when the singer went to rip off drummer Kelly Ravin’s shirt, he yanked him across the kit. After a short rearrangement of the cymbals, they kept the rock loud and ferocious. Their set was not super long, but was a fun powerhouse of a show. What a night!!
