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

Great ghostly rocker from the Claws. Sarah has lots of supernatural imagery in that song. Great song from the unaffiliated Phil Yates. Great surf rock version of the Sabbath song. OK, let’s keep rocking.

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?

28.) Sayonara – Black Rabbit

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.

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It’s very dark and almost time for Halloween, so tonight I will play some spooky scary songs. This is the time of year when the line between our world and the world beyond is very thin. I usually invite my friend from beyond, Mr E. Ghoul, to join me, but it’s just a little too early and the line between our worlds is still to far to cross. Yes, he is having an issue with Incarnation Dysfunction. There are several ways ghouls can cross into our world. Let’s begin with one of the more fun vehicles.

1.) Voodoo Camaro – Wide Wail
2.) Crazy Hearse – Barbacoa
3.) With The Dead – Vultures of Cult
4.) Oh My God – Sarah Blacker

Nice tale of angels and devils from Sarah. She lives in Salem, MA but comes up to Vermont to haunt us now and then. Fun, seasonally appropriate song from Vultures. Some souls prefer to travel in the crazy hearse and some the voodoo camaro. It’s just matter of choice. Up next, is one of the scariest concepts that mortals can deal with, sarcasm.

5.) I’m Thrilled – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
6.) Day Of The Dead – Hana Zara
7.) Funeral – Dirtminers
8.) Raising The Dead – Carraway
9.) Ninjas VS Zombies – Phil Yates

Such fun tales of terror from Phil and Carraway. Funeral is a cool song from the Miners. Great song from Hana. Hopefully, she will come back and play for us sometime in the near future. Phil and the band will be at The Skinny Pancake tomorrow and will play a set of Elvis Costello and one of their own. They are one of every band in town who is playing in the next couple of days. This is a great song from a classic Burlington artist.

10.) Graveyard Before Dark – Alice Austin
11.) One More Grave – The Contrarian
12.) Gothic Bloodsucker – Zola Turn
13.) Vampyre – Dave Jarvis Band

Classic from Burlington’s ’90’s. The Zola song is from the first album. Killer tune from Casey Merlin Rae who was a writer and musician in town for many years. So, we’ve heard songs about specific beasts like zombies and vampires, so here is one about the generic category of monsters.

14.) Monsters Are Due – Doom Service
15.) Monsters – Cold Sweat
16.) A Place Both Beautiful And Strange – Vultures Of Cult
17.) Demon Moon – Crazyhearse

Killer doom and gloom song from hearse. I love the moody instrumental from Cult. Sweat make the point that monsters don’t have to be supernatural. Great new Doom song. Let’s now turn our sights to magic for a song recorded at the Radio Bean

18.) I Put A Spell On You – Marco Benevento and Kat Wright
19.) Devil – farm
20.) The Death Of Tim Lewis (poem read over the end of Devil and beginning of Devil Knows) – Tim Lewis
21.) Devil Knows My Name – Great Western

Killer version of their new song recorded live at Nectar’s. Great song by Farm about the struggles in life. Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band will be at Nectar’s on Saturday. This song is about a bar that burned down and people died and their ghosts still reside.

22.) Black Cat – Black Rabbit
23.) Ghostified – Persian Claws
24.) Killing Ghosts – Better Things
25.) Ghost Train – Jerichovox

I love the spooky sound of that song. Ghoul called me and let me know some ghosts prefer to take the train to the other side, not just a car. That one is dedicated to him. Killer song from Better. Great rocker from Persian. This next band weren’t around long but played some solid shows.

26.) Planning My Funeral – Poxy
27.) Space Weed Zombies (live) – Wave of the Future
28.) JC And The Beast – The Mountain Says No
29.) Children Of The Grave – Jesus Christ and the Hallucinogenic Allstars

Killer cover of the Sabbath song from the Saratoga NY band who come to town now and then. Mountain and Wave will play at Finnegan’s tomorrow at 10. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town, and that it didn’t scare you too much. Goodbye. Sayonara.

30.) Sayonara – Black Rabbit

I just got back from doing my local music radio show on internet only WBKM.org. In honor of Jazzfest, I played a bunch of blues and jazz, then let it rock.

Song before: Now And Then – Pete Townshend

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the sounds of Burlington. You likely cannot hear what I’m saying since the fire trucks are blaring sirens as I speak. It’s Jazzfest and the town is filled with music and happy people. This first artist is headlining the block party tomorrow from 5-8 on the stage at the top of Church St. This is Afterall (Glad We Made It) by Kat Wright and the Indomitable Soul Band on WBKM and this is Burlington’s Kind Of Music.

1.) Afterall (Glad We Made It) – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band
2.) Blue Lunch – Sneakers Jazz Band – Live at White Crow
3.) I’m Just A Lonely So And So – Big Joe Burrell & The Unknown Blues Band

Joe was one of the greats and put tons of music into this town. It’s cool that they just re-released the live in the studio Sneakers band album. Great stuff from some great musicians. They are reuniting for two shows at Club Metronome on Sunday. Great stuff from Kat and the band. Let’s stay with the classic Vt theme.

4.) Killer Bee Bop – Zoot Wilson
5.) Stronger – Belizbeha
6.) Fearless->Benny And The Jets->Fearless – Marco Benevento.

That was from a show Marco played at Radio Bean. Belizbeha used to play their acid jazz all over town. There’s a lot of talent in that band. Let’s keep things jazzy for just a little while longer.

7.) Breathe – Barika
8.) Mon Ange – Francesca Blanchard
9.) Burning Down The House (live) – Joe Adler & The Rangers Of Danger

That was from a fun show and recorded live at Nectar’s. Francesca is playing Light Club Lamp Shop this evening. I love the flow of the Barika song. Well, last week I played the last song from Swale‘s The Next Instead. It’s time to start a new album to play song after song, week after week. This album is not out yet but should be released June 27th when they play The Monkey House. The album is called JV from a band called The Mountain Says No.

10.) Come And Decide – The Mountain Says No
11.) Kill Your Idols – Steve Blair & Andy Hildebrandt
12.) Burn It Down Bernadette – Phil Yates & The Affiliates

Phil and the band are playing the Monkey House tomorrow. Classic VT musicians covering a Slush/Five Seconds Expired song from the Burlington Does Burlington disc. Great song from Mountain and a lot more great songs by Mountain on the way. If you listened to the Zoot song you may have caught the line about enjoying 6-7 daiquiris. A lot of people in Burlington like to have a few drinks and see music and have fun. One of the preferred drinks is the subject of this next set.

13.) Whiskey Man – Arc Iris
14.) Don’t Give That Guy Whiskey – Torpedo Rodeo
15.) A Bottle Of Whiskey Later – Crazyhearse
16.) The Whiskey Always Wins – When Particles Collide

Particles are heading out on the road. Check your local listings and check them out if they come to your town. Killer song by Crazyhearse. I had lots of fun seeing Torpedo when they used to do the basement shows with tons of bands. I loved seeing Iris a couple of weeks back. Hopefully I’ll get to see them again. The Crazyhearse song had Rebecca Rogers on it. So does the next one.

17.) When I’m Drunk – The Dirty Blondes
18.) Summertime – The Velvet Ovum Band
19.) Super Sexy Science Party – Wave of the Future

Great song that was recorded at Nectar’s too. Classic from Peg Tassey MUSIC and her band. I just love this next song.

20.) Say It – Anachronist
21.) Think I’ll Stay – Great Western
22.) The Banks Of Marble – U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders and 30 Vermont musicians

It’s great that Bernie’s message today is the same as it was back when he recorded that. It’s too bad that it still has to be the same. The Western song could have fit in the whiskey set, but works in any set of music. OK, time for a couple left. This next band was fronted by Dan Bolles who writes for Seven Days and has taught me a lot about music in our town over the years.

23.) Highway Girl – The Skamaphrodites
24.) The Blackout – The Static Age

That band spawned two great Burlington musicians. Marie Claire Johnson played keys on that and went on to front Fire The Cannons, and Bobby Hackney Jr. plays drums on that song and now sings for the mighty ROUGH FRANCIS. Well, I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?
