Song before: Bloodletting (The Vampire Song) – Concrete Blonde

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. The skies are gray, the air is cold and the leaves are falling from the trees. Summer is gone and Halloween is almost upon us. Usually, Mr E. Ghoul crosses over to join us, but the veil is still too strong, being so many days away. I, alone, will guide you through the terror that is the Vermont music scene. Let’s begin with a song about the dead.

1.) Stardust For Dessert – David Rosane & The Zookeepers
2.) Ghosts Aren’t Free – Ballroom Sofa
3.) Release The Dead – Chin Ho
4.) Ghosts – Troy Millette Music

Thank you for reminding us of our mortality Troy. I dug up that ancient song from Chin. Chilling thought from Sofa and beautifully disturbing song from David and the band. OK, let’s get a little magical.

5.) I Put A Spell On You – Kat Wright and Marco Benevento
6.) Devil – farm
7.) A Monster’s Holiday – Matt the Gnat and the Gators
8.) Devil Knows My Name – Great Western

Is there anything scarier than the devil knowing your name? Hmm, apparently the gators prefer to celebrate their monsters. Nice attempt to outrun the devil Farm. That was a lovely spell concocted one night at Radio Bean by the dynamic duo. Here is another song that I found deeply buried.

9.) Vampyre – Dave Jarvis (Hipp Notix)
10.) Oh My God – Sarah Blacker & New England Groove Association
11.) Day Of The Dead – Hana Zara
12.) Graveyard Before Dark – Alice Austin

Such a scary song from Alice. Hana speaks of how the veil between the living and the dead is understood down south. Terrifying imagery from Sarah and a lovely oldie from Dave. Care to jam with some monsters?

13.) Halloween Jam – The Dead Shakers
14.) Nightmare On Elm Street – Savage Hen
15.) With The Dead – Vultures of Cult
16.) Full Moon Dark Places – Bull & Prairie

Vermont is full of dark places, and the shadows of the full moon only make them more terrifying. I fear the Vultures may have gotten too close to their song. Disturbing song from the Hen and a scary stream of monsters for the Dead. Speaking of death.

17.) Death Of A Barn Cat – Dirtminers
18.) Black Cat – Black Rabbit
19.) Hell Chicken – Swillbillie
20.) Dogs At The Door – Milton Busker

I hope you survived the terror of being alone, barely safe, wondering what lies beyond the door. Swillbillie are wise to make us aware of the terror wrought by chickens. Halloween was made for cats. OK, it’s time to panic.

21.) Panic – Miku Daza
22.) Ninjas VS Zombies – Phil Yates
23.) Ghostified – Persian Claws
24.) Raising The Dead – Carraway

Lovely song about zombies dancing. Terror filled song by the Claws. Phil sings of the battle between life and death and Miku rightly advises panic. This next soul seems to be trying to give up supernatural ways. Silly human.

25.) Giving Up The Ghost – Aaron Flinn
26.) Demon Eyes – Lake Superior
27.) One More Grave – The Contrarian
28.) Demon Moon – Crazyhearse
29.) Counting On A Ghost – Elephants of Scotland

You can always count on a ghost, even if Aaron disagrees. Lovely songs of demons from Crazy and Superior. Even one so contrary understands the power of the grave. Well, I hope you were not too scared listening to the terrifying music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

outro

Songs after – Incubus (with graveyard intro and geezabum outro) – Fish
Thugs – The Tragically Hip
Give It Up To The Night – Bad Smell
Hell Toupee – Derek Smalls
Devil Inside Me – Dam Kat
Angels And Devils – Invisible Homes
Monsters – Cold Sweat
Heaven And Hell – Dio
Angels Of Death – Hawkwind
Killing Ghosts – Better Things
Monsters Are Due – Doom Service
Fear Of The Dark – Iron Maiden
Feel The Thunder – Blue Oyster Cult
War Pigs – Black Sabbath
Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps) – David Bowie
Devil Eyes – Jakals
Please Mr Gravedigger – David Bowie
Heavy – Clever Girls

Tonight’s local music radio show on WBKM.ORG will run from 9-11pm US Eastern time Thursday June 21st. It can be streamed here: WBKM It will go as follows.

Song before: Bury My Lovely – October Project

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Usually, I start out a little mellow and work my way up into a maelstrom. Let’s change that tonight and start rocking now.

1.) This Town – Suburban Samurai
2.) Betty Rage – Doll Fight
3.) Willow I & II – Tyler Daniel Bean

Great music from Tyler and the band. There is a wonderful video for Willow II that speaks about depression. If you ever feel that way, please reach out to friends. We care more than you might realize. Another reason to play i & II is to celebrate Tyler’s new shop called Willow’s Bagels. I’ve enjoyed my two visits. Great rockers from Fight and Samurai. OK, so last week I finished playing Engine by Kelly Ravin. Tonight we begin the trek through The Uncanny Doom Service.

4.) The Curse Of The Doom Service – Doom Service
5.) Imaginary – Envy
6.) Sugar Coated Candy Stix – Dino Bravo VT
7.) Paper Train – David L Jarvis

That’s a classic from the ’90’s. Fun rocker from Dino, that song was recorded last year. Envy were an amazing part of the local music scene in the ’90’s. Great song, and album, by Doom. So, Envy had two great singer songwriter guitar players named Sean Toohey and Matt Hutton. They went on to form The Red Telephone and the duo will play a show at Radio Bean on Saturday at 7pm. They recorded an interview with Mike Luoma this afternoon that will be broadcast on WBKM tomorrow around 1pm. Let’s dive in and listen to some of their music.

8.) Pennsylvania – The Red Telephone
9.) Jet Pilot High – The Red Telephone
10.) Bionic – The Red Telephone
11.) Teenage Mother Earth – The Red Telephone
12.) Today Is Tomorrow – The Red Telephone
13.) I Don’t Know What To Believe – The Red Telephone

Bionic was from the album they did after getting signed to Warner Brothers. Believe is about getting dropped from the label and going out on your own. Jet is the first song on their solo EP Aviation. Pennsylvania is from the Cellar Songs album, as is Teenage. Today is from the Places You Return album that came out a couple of years ago. I’m so happy to see them play on Saturday. OK, this next artist is at Foam Brewers tomorrow.

14.) Mama – Ivamae
15.) Strings – Binger
16.) Sandblaster – The High Breaks
17.) Detective Norman – Sad Turtle

Turtle will be at the Bean after the Hutton Toohey Disaster on Saturday. The Breaks will be at Foam on Saturday. Binger will play BCA on Wednesday. This next band played a cool show last week.

18.) Plague Bearer – Wolfhand
19.) Space Weed Zombies – Wave of the Future
20.) Carnage – Black Rabbit
21.) Signal Loss – Zeus Springsteen

Zeus and the Rabbit will be at The Monkey House on Saturday. I thought it would be fun to play the zombie song since Turtle, Wolfhand and Wave share band members. OK, let’s keep rocking.

22.) Everything You Say And Do – Bison
23.) Simpsons – J Bengoy
24.) My New Mix Tape – Eef
25.) Today Is Mine – David Rosane & The Zookeepers

Great new song from the Book Of Zoo album. David and the band will soon launch their noble quest to encourage literacy and support libraries. Super fun song from Eef and interesting advice about how to watch the Simpsons. Bison are so much fun. OK, let’s keep on with more beautiful music.

26.) Middlesex – SWALE
27.) Poem for Torin/Ethan Is Stoned – Peg Tassey MUSIC
28.) Even The Clouds Get High – James Kochalka
29.) Grandma Betty’s Good Time Smoking Weed – Brother Zag.

The Brother seldom plays out but now and then you might hear a random guitar play through the old north end. Fun song from James and classic from Peg. We wish you well Peg, get better soon. Well, I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

outro

Songs after
Solo – Fish
Looking For A Place To Happen – The Tragically Hip

Song before: Bloodletting (The Vampire Song) (extended) – Concrete Blonde

intro

From our small city to the great big world these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It’s almost Halloween and I have a bunch of scary local songs lined up tonight, but first let’s head over to Robot Dog Studio for an interview and live performance by the mighty Ruckzuck Warning: This show could disorient your sense of space and time.

1.) I Ruined The Moon – Ruckzuck
2.) Alan’s Garden – Ruckzuck
3.) Future Shock – Ruckzuck
4.) Miss Cancy – Ruckzuck

I want to thank Ruckzuck for playing three times last Sunday and for their relentless touring and over the top music. It just fills my heart and I hope it does the same for you. Thanks also to Ryan Cohen for relentlessly making us sound great. OK, it’s almost Halloween. Let’s begin with a song about the dead.

5.) Stardust For Dessert – David Rosane & The Zookeepers
6.) A Monster’s Holiday – Matt the Gnat and the Gators
7.) Devil – farm
8.) Devil Knows My Name – Great Western

Great songs from Western and Farm. The first two were recorded at Robot Dog when those bands stopped in and played. OK, let’s go on to the next song from the Surf Sabbath album that I’m playing all the way through week after week.

9.) Hole In The Sky – Surf Sabbath (The High Breaks)
10.) Ninjas Vs Zombies – Phil Yates
11.) Oh My God – Sarah Blacker & New England Groove Association
12.) Ghostified – Persian Claws

13.) Day Of The Dead – Hana Zara
14.) I Put A Spell On You – Marco Benevento and Kat Wright
15.) Death Of A Barn Cat – Dirtminers
16.) Graveyard Before Dark – Alice Austin

Great song from the legendary Alice Austin. Cool song about a sad subject by the Dirtminers. Great version of the classic by Kat and Marco. That was recorded at Radio Bean a couple of years back. Classic from Hana. I hope you’re not afraid of ghosts.

17.) Counting On A Ghost – Elephants of Scotland
18.) Giving Up The Ghost – Aaron Flinn
19.) Raising The Dead – Carraway
20.) Nightmare On Elm Street Theme – Savage Hen

Savage created that little ditty one night at Robot Dog. Great imagery in the Carraway song. Hmmm, ghosts. OK, this next song is not about a ghost.

21.) Vampyre – David L Jarvis
22.) Hell Chicken – Swillbillie
23.) Halloween Jam – The Dead Shakers
24.) Demon Moon – Crazyhearse

Great scary song from hearse. The Dead Shakers recorded that one at a session at Robot Dog recently. Gotta watch out for vampires and chickens from hell. Well, I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we? Sayonara.

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

Song Before: Red – King Crimson

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds of Burlington. There is a ton of great music happening this week and it’s almost all on Saturday. Let’s begin with a band who are a local treasure.

1.) Cancer – SWALE
2.) Mother’s OK – Split Tongue Crow
3.) As Glass – Wren Kitz
4.) Jessie – Danny LeFrancois

I saw Danny a couple of weeks ago play with The Parts at Manhattan. They opened with that song. He just sent me his solo album The Ghost Of Kevin Bacon and that one jumped out at me. Wren is another local treasure. Great song from Crow and gorgeous song by Swale. I want to take a moment to say how professional our local doctors are and to give a shout out to all the wonderful nurses in our town and all around our planet. You are amazing and do wonderful work. OK, let’s play the final song on Shovel Down, even though it’s not listed on the album.

5.) Just Open The Door – Seth Yacovone Band
6.) Winter Is Over – Apartment 3
7.) These Summer Nights – Sarah Blacker & New England Groove Association
8.) Brainwashed Nation – The Snaz

I think the Snaz have a new album but I have not checked it out yet. That’s an older classic. I love to play the Sarah song in the middle of winter and dream of summer. Apartment 3 are releasing their new album Saturday night at ArtsRiot. Great song from Seth. I’ll have to start a new album next week. I want to thank Higher Ground for sponsoring WBKM.ORG. The Snaz will play there Saturday and open for this next artist.

9.) I Can’t See the Light – Marco Benevento
10.) Follow The Arrow – Marco Benevento
11.) Worlds Are Colliding (George Is Getting Upset) – Sad Turtle
12.) The Big One – The High Breaks

The High Breaks will bring their surf rock sound to Finnegan’s on Saturday and Turtle will open for them. Marco is just going to rock Higher Ground on Saturday. Also on Saturday, The Nancy Druids will rock The Monkey House. Sean Toohey and Ann Mindell used to play in Envy and Sean used to play in this next band so their show will sound a little like these next two songs.

13.) Jet Pilot High – The Red Telephone
14.) Falling In And Out Of Sleep – Envy
15.) Nothing In This – The Mountain Says No
16.) Give Love – 1881

That’s another great song from their Action EP. Mountain will release their new album Golden Landfill soon. Classics from Envy and Red Telephone. Last weekend was fun, I got to see Joe Adler and Binger Friday and Jeremy Gilchrist and Joe Adler on Saturday. It sounded a bit like this.

17.) Relax – Joe Adler
18.) Resurrection In Sanskrit I – Binger
19.) If I Knew – Binger
20.) Letter From The 21st – Jeremy Gilchrist – Singer-Songwriter

Jeremy did not play that song, but it’s one of my favorites so I had to play it for you tonight. Binger played Resurrection and If back to back and made them sound great. Joe played a great version of Relax. OK, let’s pull out a fun song from the ’90’s.

21.) On My Way – Hover
22.) Way With Words – Kat Wright
23.) Sally – Daniel Waterhouse
24.) Happy Birthday Harry – Hana Zara

I love that song from Hana, and everything else that she does. Cool song from Daniel. Great song from Kat and the band. Hover were so much fun. OK, let’s play another song from Golden Landfill.

25.) Game Of Thrones – The Mountain Says No
26.) Waiting – Mr. Doubtfire
27.) Black, Blue, And White – The New Siberians

Great song from Siberians. Doubtfire have been rocking our town a lot lately and are writing lots of new songs. Hmmm, Mountain. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

Tonight’s local music Halloween show on 107.1FM WBKM runs from 9-11pm US Eastern time and will go as follows:

Song before: Who Are These Gods? – Dam Kat

intro

From our small mortuary to the great big graveyard, these are the skulls of Burlington. It’s been a terrifying few days in Burlington with cold wind and snow blanketing the beautiful red orange and gold leaves. The forecast is for it to get darker and darker until All Hallows Eve on Monday, then it will return to it’s usual lovely state. Our sponsor, Higher Ground, is likely going to send me to the gallows for not mentioning how great of a rock club they are but tonight I want to focus on the fusion of the physical world and the spirits that inhabit it. Our perception of life is merely the light dancing across shifting solid objects. Let’s explore this subject matter with a song called Shadow and Act by Invisible Homes on WBKM.ORG 107.1FM Burlington’s Kind Of Music, Plattsburgh’s kind of music and Danemora’s kind of music too.

1.) Shadow And Act – Invisible Homes
2.) Oh My God – Sarah Blacker
3.) Release The Dead – Chin Ho
4.) Angels And Devils – Invisible Homes

That was a song called Angels and Devils by Invisible Homes on WBKM.ORG 107.1FM Burlington, Plattsburgh, Danemora. Can you think of anything more terrifying than going back to your home after a long night at the clubs and finding it invisible? Once you find your way inside it must be hard to balance the angels and devils. For the tale before that I had to dig deep into one of our oldest graveyards to find the song Release the dead by Chin Ho. Did you enjoy Sarah Blacker’s tale of darkness and light in Oh My God? I hope Invisible Homes twin tales of Shadow and Act and Angels and Devils help you enjoy the thin thread between the worlds. Speaking of the devil. let’s take a journey to an ancient Vermont Farm for a song called Devil on WBKM.ORG 107.1FM Burlington’s Kind Of Music, Plattsburgh’s kind of music and Danemor’s kind of music too.

5.) Devil – farm
6.) Devil’s Work – Thompson Gunner
7.) Devil’s Right Hand – Swillbillie
8.) Devil Knows My Name – Great Western

Great Western must be terrified that the Devil Knows Their Name on WBKM.ORG 107.1FM Burlington, Plattsburgh, Danemora. Swillbillie told us a gruesome tale of a gun being used as The Devil’s Right Hand. Thompson Gunner told us a tale of he Devil’s Work, and Farm told us a story about freeing themselves from the hold of the Devil. Now, we shall let Hana Zara tell us about one of our most famous holiday’s. It’s called Day Of The Dead on WBKM.ORG 107.1FM Burlington’s Kind Of Music, Plattsburgh’s kind of music and Danemora’s kind of music too.

9.) Day Of The Dead – Hana Zara
10.) Raising The Dead – Carraway
11.) Ninjas Vs Zombies – Phil Yates
12.) Two Weeks (’til The End Of The World) – Grand

Considering America’s imminent grand decision, perhaps it is just Two Weeks (’til the end of the world) as the band Grand so nicely stated on WBKM.ORG 107.1FM Burlington, Plattsburgh, Danemora. I hope you enjoyed Phil Yates’ tale of Ninjas Vs Zombies and the epic battle for life. If the zombies should win, at least they dance well, as Carraway explained in Raising The Dead. Hana Zara’s cheery tale of the Day Of The Dead should give you hope too, in the darkest of evenings. Are you afraid yet? I hope so because it’s time to be terrified. It’s time for Doom Service and a Welcome To The Hellmouth on WBKM.ORG 107.1FM Burlington’s Kind Of Music, Plattsburgh’s kind of music and Danemora’s kind of music too.

13.) Welcome To The Hellmouth – Doom Service
14.) Demon Eyes – Lake Superior
15.) Demon Moon – Crazyhearse
16.) Vampyre – David Jarvis

That was a tale of the Vampyre by Dave Jarvis on WBKM.ORG 107.1FM Burlington, Plattsburgh, Danemora. Dave will resurrect his old body and band for a show tomorrow and I hear word that the Vampyre will appear. Were you more afraid of Crazyhearse’s story of the Demon Moon or Lake Superior’s Demon eyes? Both were pretty frightening. I hope you enjoyed your Welcome To The Hellmouth with Doom Service. They put on the darkest of shows last Tuesday at Nectar’s. This next singer plays all the time, but to find Alice Austin, you must go to a Graveyard Before Dark on WBKM.ORG 107.1FM Burlington, Plattsburgh, Danemora.

17.) Graveyard Before Dark – Alice Austin
18.) One More Grave – The Contrarian
19.) Children Of The Grave – Jesus Christ and the Hallucinogenic Allstars
20.) Paranoid – Surf Sabbath (The High Breaks)

Even ghouls like to surf so I hope you enjoyed the cover of Paranoid by Surf Sabbath on WBKM.ORG 107.1FM Burlington, Plattsburgh, Danemora. Since Vultures of Cult and SWALE are playing Black Sabbath cover shows on Saturday I had to subject us to Children Of The Grave by Jesus Christ and the Hallucinogenic All Stars. The Contrarian took us on a trip through One More Grave and we started in The Graveyard Before Dark with newly married Alice Austin. As all of the undead know, once you are in the grave, there is only one way to go, down. Fortunately, you will be guided by Our Lady Of The Underground as told by Anais Mitchell on WBKM.ORG 107.1FM Burlington’s Kind Of Music, Plattsburgh’s kind of music and Danemora’s kind of music too.

21.) Our Lady Of The Underground – Anais Mitchell
22.) I Put A Spell On You – Marco Benevento and Kat Wright
23.) You’ll Make A Great Ghost – the grift
24.) Ghost Train – Jerichovox

Did you enjoy your journey on the Ghost Train with Jerichovox on WBKM.ORG 107.1FM Burlington, Plattsburgh, Danemora? I hope so, there will be more ghostly songs soon. The Grift thought You Will Make A Great Ghost and I agree. That was Marco Benevento and Kat Wright who admitted that I Put A Spell On You and Anais Mitchell was Our Lady Of The Underground. Some people are addicted to the supernatural but Aaron Flinn is forever Giving Up The Ghost on WBKM.ORG 107.1FM Burlington’s Kind Of Music, Plattsburgh’s kind of music and Danemors kind of music too.

25.) Giving Up The Ghost – Aaron Flinn
26.) Counting On A Ghost – Elephants of Scotland
27.) Ghostified – Persian Claws
28.) Killing Ghosts – Better Things

Better things are lovely kids to think that they can go around Killing Ghosts on WBKM.ORG 107.1FM Burlington, Plattsburgh’, Danemora. The Persian Claws left us Ghostified and Elephants of Scotland regaled us with a tale of Counting On A Ghost. Aaron Flinn is still Giving Up The Ghost and may do so for all eternity. This next group of individuals has demised as a band, but spend some time before they left Planning My Funeral. They were briefly known as Poxy on WBKM.ORG 107.1FM Burlington’s Kind Of Music, Plattsburgh’s kind of music and Danemora kind of music too.

29.) Planning My Funeral – Poxy
30.) With The Dead – Vultures of Cult

As we approach Halloween, we are all With The Dead as foretold by Vultures of Cult on WBKM.ORG 107.1FM Burlington, Plattsburgh, Danemora. I hope you were terrified to check out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we? Goodbye. Farewell, See Ya, Sayonara.

31.) Black Cat – Black Rabbit
outro

Songs after:
Plague Of Ghosts (live USA 2000) – Fish
Phantom Girl – The Cush
Black 17 – The New Siberians
Crazy Hearse – Barbacoa
Voodoo Camero – Wide Wail
Alone In The Night – Andriana Chobot

Tonight’s local music radio show on WBKM will go as follows:

Song before: I Don’t Know How To Love Him – Jesus Christ Superstar soundtrack

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. They’ve got The English Beat and Of Montreal in town this week, among others. There has been a ton of great music played in town in the last few weeks and I will highlight a lot of it tonight. Let’s begin with an artist who played around town a couple of years ago, including a rock show at the Fletcher Free Library, who finally released some of her songs.

1.) High And Mighty – S.e. Ward
2.) The Worst Part – Bethany Conner Music
3.) The Birds Of Parks Slope – Eastern Mountain Time
4.) Pas d’sa Faute – Francesca Blanchard

Francesca put on a great show at Summervale a couple of weeks ago. She will be at Spruce Peak on October 1st if you want to check her out live. Great song from Sean Hood‘s band. Bethany is a young singer songwriter with lots of promise. Yea, I finally have some of S.e. Ward’s music to play. Yea. This next singer will stop by the studio and play for us live in a couple of weeks, when he gets back from Iceland.

5.) Endless War – Jeremy Gilchrist – Singer-Songwriter
6.) Happy Birthday Harry – Hana Zara
7.) More Than Gold – Ryan Fauber and Samara Lark Brown
8.) Brother Of Mine – Mike Brewster Music

I want to thank Mike for sending that song to me. I want to send that one out to my brother Ken and to everyone’s brother, whether it’s a brother by blood or a bond that is formed. Great song from Ryan and Samara. I am still thrilled about seeing Hana a couple of weeks ago at Light Club Lamp Shop. Sadly true song from Jeremy Gilchrist. OK, last week I played the last song on Lendway‘s Giant Places album so now it’s time to start a new album to play song by song, week after week, until all the songs are played. This next album has some great songs and intriguing music. The album is called Song For My Double and the band is Invisible Homes.

9.) :Little Song – Invisible Homes
10.) Ladybug – Ninja Custodian
11.) Pitseleh – Milton Busker
12.) She Has Your Name – Phil Yates & The Affiliates

Phil Yates and the band played a cool show last week at Switchback Brewing Company. I’m loving Milton’s new album You Are What You Pretend To Be. With all the new music I’m playing tonight, I had to toss in the Ninja classic. Great song from Homes. This next band shut down a section of Main St on Sunday and threw a giant party.

13.) Starman – Madila
14.) Live A Certain Life – Marco Benevento
15.) Kaleidoscope – Arc Iris
16.) Give Me All Your Love – Madaila

You just have to love Madaila for pulling off such cool shows. Great song too. Iris played Sunday night as part of the festival, but played upstairs at Club Metronome. They played Joni Mitchell’s album Blue, so they did not play that song. Hopefully, they will come back and play it for us soon. Marco and his band played on Main St and played that song from his new album The Story Of Fred Short. Hmmmm, Madaila. I want to thank Bobby Hackney Jr.for inviting me, and most of Burlington’s musicians and artists, to his birthday party recently.

17.) Black And Red – ROUGH FRANCIS
18.) Living Arrangements – The Red Summer Sun
19.) The Wolves Are Coming – Suburban Samurai
20.) Casanova With A K – Better Things

It was cool to see Sun, Samurai and Better at 242 Main recently. All three rocked hard. Hmmm, Rough Francis. I saw a band (Zeus Springsteen) that evolved out of this next band do this next song last night at The Monkey House.

21. Lights Of Montreal – Lobot
22.) Bidets And Confused – Sad Turtle
23.) Bird On The Sea – The New Siberians
24.) Such A Scene – Wood Coats

I want to thank David Anderson for turning me on to Coats. Another great new song from the Siberians. Turtle have a new album coming soon, and it sounds like it could be very good. It was so cool to see Zeus play the Lobot song. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

I had a great time seeing music Sunday evening on Main st and at Club Metronome. As soon as I got out of work I headed downtown. I walked down a packed Church St and found the entrance to the show. They had blocked off Main st between Church and S Winooski ave and put up a stage. I arrived just before 5 but Marco Benevento was already on stage jamming out with a bass player and drummer. He sang and played keys and they played some happy grooves that seemed constantly ascending. They played a few cool songs then did all of side two of the new album The Story of Fred Short. The band rocked nicely and were lots of fun. They followed with a fun instrumental then closed the night with Bus Ride and At The Show.

After a short break, with the sound filled out by DJ Disco Phantom, Lady Lamb took the stage. She sang and played some intense electric guitar riffs and was joined by a bass player who added some keys, and a drummer. The indie rock sound was full of angst and passion and kept moving in ways that I had to work to keep up with. I did not know any of her songs but greatly enjoyed all of them. There were several moments of serious rock and roll and her set blew me away.

After that I headed up to the WBKM to load some files into my folder and hung out with another station DJ named Jordan. His brother D was there too and we chatted about music and listened to Madaila as they took the stage. They sounded great and played mostly original songs. I finally had to head back to the crowd but by the time I got there, the band was playing a Whitney Houston song, so I had to go take a walk for a while.

After a bit, I headed up to Metronome and caught the end of the set by Lux Deluxe. They had a smooth easy pop/rock sound. Most of the songs got into a groove and stayed there with minimal and subtle changes. They played really well and a couple of the songs had nice hooks. The singer joined the drummer for one song that rocked a percussive groove as the bass player drove the song forward, the guitar player added some quick riffs and the keyboard player filled the sound. The five or six songs that I caught were pretty cool.

There was a long set break then Arc Iris hit the stage. They played as a trio with Jocie Adams on vocals and a little bit of electric guitar, Zach Tenorio on keys and Ray Belli on drums. They played Joni Mitchell’s Blue album in the context of their cool sound. Ray looked like he was eternally challenged or having a great time as they worked out the constantly changing songs. I’m not sure if they played the album as a prog jazz masterpiece or a jazzy prog masterpiece but the show had magnificently challenging elements of both styles and kept me captivated. I loved the show note for note, but as I had to work in the morning, when the last one faded out I headed down the stairs and took the easy walk home.
