Tonight’s local music radio show on WBKM will run from 9-11pm US Eastern time Thursday July 20 and will go as follows.

Song before: Looking For A Place To Happen – The Tragically Hip

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It’s been a great week for music and I’ve been getting out to as many shows as possible. This first performer took the stage for the first time in many years last Thursday and sounded as great as ever. This is the song she opened with.

1.) First Kiss – Peg Tassey MUSIC
2.) (What’s So Funny ’bout) Peace, Love, and Understanding – Elvis Costello
3.) The Art Of Giving In – 1881
4.) Oliver’s Army – Elvis Costello

I want to thank Higher Ground for sponsoring us at the station and for bringing so much great music to town. They are bringing Elvis Costello to the Shelburne Museum on Sunday and I could not be more excited. That’s the next song on 1881’s series of EP’s called Lights, Camera, Action. I had to stick that one in between other songs since the intro and outro are so fun. Great songs from Elvis and It was so great to hear Peg sing again. OK, let’s head over to Robot Dog Studio for another edition of WBKM live at Robot Dog. Tonight we feature the amazing Andriana Chobot.

5.) Dig Him – Andriana Chobot
6.) Cascade – Andriana Chobot
7.) Another Day – Andriana Chobot
8.) My Old Home – Andriana Chobot

I love Andriana’s songs and hope you do to. Thanks Ryan Cohen for making us sound so great. I saw this next performer play a couple of songs a long time and have loved their music ever since. I got to see them play a long show at American Flatbread yesterday and they were fantastic. Here is one of the songs they played.

9.) Urban Country – David Rosane & The Zookeepers
10.) Elevator – SWALE
11.) My New Mix Tape – Eef
12.) On My Way – Hover

That’s a classic from Burlington’s ’90’s. Eef played around in the ’90’s too but got back together about a year ago for a show and I’ve loved the song Mix Tape ever since. That Swale song has been stuck in my head all week. I hope it gets stuck in yours too. Great song from David and the band. This next band are at Red Square tonight.

13.) Lovely Day – gneiss
14.) Children Of The Stars – Madaila
15.) The Light – Kat Wright
16.) Salty Things – Queen Tangerine

Alice Austin and Julia Austin used to be in Zola Turn then did an album as QT and put out a few cool songs. Great song from Kat Wright‘s new album. Fun song from Madaila who will shut down Main st for a show in a few weeks. Gneiss are so lovely. This next band will be at the Amy E. Tarrant Gallery which is part of the Flynn Center for the Performing Arts for a free show at 5pm tomorrow as part of it’s Exhibitionist series.

17.) I Know, Right? – The Mountain Says No
18.) Sin Is Funner – Swillbillie
19.) Oklahoma Road Rage – Crazyhearse
20.) Yayo – Dirty Blondes

The Blondes, Crazy, and Swill will be at The Monkey House tomorrow and that show will rock. This next band rocked the Monkey House last week.

21.) Lunacy – Cave Bees
22.) NA – Modern Trigger
23.) Stick That In Your Juicebox And Sip It – Better Things
24.) The Wolves Are Coming – Suburban Samurai
25.) Time Travel – Bearchild

Bear, Better, Modern and the Bees played a great show at the Monkey last week. Better and Suburban play there on this coming Saturday. OK, let’s rock out for a bit.

26.) Every Last One Of Us – Swale
27.) Song About The Ocean – Dino Bravo VT
28.) Jackbooted Thugs (Have All the Best Drugs) – Anders Parker
29.) Tow Truck – David L Jarvis

I want to dedicate that song to everyone who’s been aggravated to find that their car has been towed, especially to people named Cody. Anders has a couple of shows coming up soon. Great songs from Dino and Swale. 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 Saturday night at The Monkey House. It was one of those classic shows with two bands that I knew and loved and two that I new nothing about. It was a slightly warm lovely evening and the walk to Winooski went smoothly.

I got in and settled and around 8:45 Cave Bees hit the stage with a roar. With blistering volume and punk rock drive they opened with a song about a car and it’s 22R. Up next was a “new” one about rocking the Queen City tonight. They went back to their album for a powerhouse version of The Lunacy. They slowed down a little for the grinding I Need A Raise then ramped back to full speed for Round Sum. We in the crowd sang Ooh Ooh Ooh Ooh Ooh on Flight Of the Alligator. Sweet Pussy rocked hard and Mine All Mine was fast and nimble. They closed the night with another “new” song called Juliet. It was a wonderful rocking set.

Up next was a band from New York called Modern Trigger. They played as a four-piece with singer/guitar player, rhythm guitar, bass, and drums. The songs had a nice indie punk sound and moved in fun directions. They opened with a song about the only one left to blame then played a song about feeling great about moving out of the futon in your basement. They played a song that said never again and may have been about Pee Wee Herman. They played a song called Time from their EP Forgiveness Is Divine but Never Pay Full Price For Late Pizza. The song about never asking for any of it had a nice sweep. They closed the eight song set with a song about outer space. The whole show was fun, rocking, full of harrowing changes, and I really liked them.

Up next was another band from New York called Bearchild. They are a trio with a singer who alternates between keys and guitar, bass and drums. Their sound is smooth and powerful and still kind of indie rock. They began with a recorded piano intro and sang a song about who should be the ones. The next song was another rocker then Justin Williams switched to keys for a bit. He sang a song about what’s yours is mine and a nicely dramatic song called Fire And Smoke. He switched back to guitar and the band rocked out Rift. They closed the seven song set with and epic keyboard sound for Time Travel. I’m so lucky to have seen them.

After a short break Better Things hit the stage fast and loud for 25 Miles Per Hour Blues. They played an intense and beautiful indie rock set. I didn’t catch the titles of the next two, but they had a huge sound and were played at maximum volume. They eased up a tiny amount for the gorgeous Ex-Files then played an instrumental version of a new song. It was pretty col. They closed the six song set with Stick That In Your Juicebox and Sip It then I started moving forward on the long walk home.
