intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It’s been a beautiful week in Burlington and tonight the town is hopping. There are people all over the place, lots of cars and motorcycles driving up and down main st. The kids went back to school this week, but it’s still a great summer night in town. Tonight I want to start with the upcoming Presidential campaign that is shaping up. No matter what you think, it’s important to elect smart compassionate people who are aware of the subtle intricacies of foreign policy. This first song is about AQ Kahn, the father of the Pakistani atomic bomb, and a cute ditty about unrequited love. Please choose leaders who know more about these kinds of things than rock stars. This is My Atom Girl by the Dirtminers on Wbkm and this is Burlington’s Kind Of Music.

1.) My Atom Girl – Dirtminers
2.) Great Escape – Jeremy Gilchrist
3.) Devil Knows My Name – Great Western

Yea, I finally got a copy of that song that has been played all over Burlington for the last year or so. Thanks Ryan Osswald. Killer song from the politically aware and very thoughtful Jeremy Gilchrist – Singer-Songwriter. He played a pretty cool show at Radio Bean last Saturday. Yes, when choosing a Presidential candidate, it’s nice if they have a good understanding of the American experience, but as the late great Bill Hicks (AMERICAN The Bill Hicks Story) once said, “It’s a round world last time I checked” OK, back to music. Burlington had a wonderful guest come and play at Nectar’s for us last night. His name is Yonrico Scott and he’s played with the Derek Trucks Band and dozens of others. He was joined by a bunch of excellent Burlington musicians like Bob Wagner, Shane Hardiman, Josh Weinstein and others. Kat Wright got up and sang a couple of songs with him, which was pretty cool.

4.) Them Changes – Yonrico Scot
5.) You’ll Be The Sky – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band
6.) Buttonz – Binger
7.) Man On The Side – Joshua Glass Music

I went to Radio Bean and saw acoustic Barbacoa then some of Sammich, which featured Dalton Muzzy from Binger on drums and Josh Glass on keys. They were pretty cool. I saw some of their set, popped over to Nectar’s for most of Yonrico Scot’s first set, then caught the end of Sammich. It was a fun time. In 2013 a well liked and regarded local DJ passed away from leukemia at age 38. Andy Williams, also know as DJ A-Dog, created such love that there was a huge party in his memory last year at Arts Riot. This year the party is on Saturday and is at both Nectar’s and Club Metronome with tons of DJs all day and night, and a show from Rough Francis.

8.) U Thought U Nu-Funk intro… – DJ A-Dog
9.) Exit Strategy – Rue Mevlana
10.) Righteous – ROUGH FRANCIS

I’m pretty sure Francis really though A-Dog was righteous, so I wanted to play that one. Rue are playing a show in a couple of weeks called Motley Rue. Could be interesting. OK, here is the next song from JV.

11.) King Grifter – The Mountain Says No
12.) We Need Bigger Knives – As We Were
13.) Circumstance – Tokyo Storm Warning
14.) Plastic Revolution – Doll Fight

I love that song, and miss Doll Fight! Classic ’90’s Burlington rock song from Tokyo. I haven’t caught up with As in a while and would really like to. Killer Mountain song!! I first saw this next band when they played one of the legendary parties at Max Krauss‘ house. He moved to Boston and joined them for a new EP.

15.) Auxiliary Girl – Night Slice
16.) Flipside – Kimberly White Project
17.) Bomb – Envy

Classic from Burlington’s ’90’s. I totally cheated with Flipside since KWP play in the Carolinas, but a local musician, who now lives down there, turned me on to them, and I wanted to play a song. Thanks for the heads up Brian Wardrep. This next band played around New England some time ago, had a beer named after them at Vt Pub, then eventually broke up. They are doing a reunion show at Higher Ground on September 5th.

18.) Ocheh (Someday I) – Currently Nameless
19.) Ordinary Day – Milton Busker
20.) Tune Of An Onion – Currently Nameless

Sean Daily, aka Milton Busker, used to play with Nameless so I though it would be fun to toss one of his songs in between two of theirs. He’s playing Aug 30 at Radio Bean with his new band The Grim Work. This next band played around from 2003-2012 and released this compilation called When Nobody Was Looking. They featured Adam Rabin who went on to join Elephants Of Scotland, and totally flew under my radar. Rats. .

21.) Attempt No Landing Aria – Mailbox
22.) Micronesia – Mailbox
23.) The Other Room (live) – Elephants of Scotland

Elephants are a long way into the third studio album. I can’t wait. Tomorrow at Radio Bean is Vermont Joy Parade, Duke Aeroplane & The Wrong Numbers, and a solo set from Anna Pardenik.

24.) Trouble Of Your Bretheren – Anna Pardenik
25.) This Land Is Your Land – U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders

Getting back to the beginning, if you want a leader who will take care of your bretheren Bernie will do the job nicely. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

I just got back from my local music radio show on internet only Wbkm Dot Org. I played a lot of new songs, a couple of classics and a few with a liquid theme.

Song before: Glow Worm – The Church Band

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the sounds of Burlington. There was a ton of music in town this last week, and I will highlight a little of it. There were a bunch of great bands at 242 Main on Saturday. Here’s most of them, starting with headliner Slingshot Dakota on Wbkm and this is Burlington’s Kind Of Music.

1.) Intro – Slingshot Dakota
2.) May Day – Slingshot Dakota
3.) Black Oil – Doom Service
4.) Last Song – Carraway
5.) 40 Days – Better Things

Brad Yandow and Brian LaClair from Better Things opened the show alternating acoustic songs. Doom Service played a heavy rocking set and I just got their new EP. Carraway were pretty remarkable and I had to find their new album today. I’ve loved every Slingshot show I’ve ever seen and they were just wonderful on Saturday. On Friday, I was at Club Metronome to help The Dirty Blondes turn 16.

6.) Hallelujah – The Dirty Blondes
7.) Staring Out The Window – ROUGH FRANCIS
8.) Another Year In Vermont – Gorgon

Gogon just released a new album. I got it today and had to get that song on the air. Rough Francis have been playing a ton of killer shows lately. They seem to be playing that one a lot. They played Friday at The Monkey House but I just could not make it. OK, let’s play the next song on Lipstick And Dynamite.

9.) Tarpaulin – Black Rabbit
10.) Vitamin Dee – Persian Claws
11.) Centralia – Night Slice

Night Slice have played town a couple of times and just put out that killer new song. Persian just released their album in digital form and added Dee as a new song. Last night I saw a killer band at The Monkey House.

12.) Bright Eyes – Allo Darlin’
13.) Golden Crutch – Swale
14.) Army Of Pop Kids – The Smittens
15.) Jan Michael Vincent – Chin Ho!

With all the new music I’m playing tonight, I though I needed to toss in a classic. Jan did the job nicely. I couldn’t find any Let’s Whisper to play, they and Swale played a great show with Darlin’, so the Smittens was as close as I could come. Swale played a killer version of Crutch. Tomorrow, The Cush come back to town to play ArtsRiot. Here is a song from their first, second, and third albums.

16.) Precious Time – The Cush
17.) Small Town Movie – The Cush
18.) The Deer And The Owl – The Cush

Is it tomorrow yet??? The other day it was nice to get tagged in an FB post from Sasha Alcott and Peg Tassey, so I though it would be fun to play a song from each.

19.) Constant Disaster – When Particles Collide
20.) First Kiss – Peg Tassey MUSIC
21.) Sunflower Street – David L. Jarvis

It’s a rainy day, so I thought I’d play a sunny Dave song. Since it’s so cold, wet, and rainy, I though I should play a song by a band called Pours.

22.) The Alchemist – Pours
23.) Today Is Tomorrow – The Red Telephone
24.) Three Cheers – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
25.) In The Rain – Plan B

Classic song from a classic Burlington band, and so appropriate on this rainy night. Phil Yates played that one at his solo show at Radio Bean and I’ve had acoustic versions of his songs in my head ever since. Great song by RT from their new album. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

Party with lots of bands at Max’s house July 13, 2013   Leave a comment

What a great night (and morning) of music at Max’ last rock dungeon party yesterday. Nathan Curtis, his girlfriend Hillary, I and grabbed some food, went to Max’s and grilled it up. It was fun to chat with all of the cool people, but then the music started. Torpedo Rodeo started the night with a bunch of huge epic songs. Max played some intense lead guitar and it was glorious.

Here’s some video

Night Slice

Up next, Night Slice, a bass and singer/keyboard player from Boston were pretty cool. The keyboard sound was more of an ’80’s sound and the bass was dirty and heavy. Their songs rocked nicely. Earlier, Birdie was saying she should sing in an Iron Maiden cover band and launched into the opening of Hallowed Be Thy Name. She’d be great. There was no Maiden in the set, but they closed with a rousing version of BOC’s Godzilla.  Here is a Video, I love the Oh No, Torpedo Rodeo, go go Godzilla

Nuda Veritas

Up next, Nuda Veritas used loops to create elegant sonic backdrops, and unleashed her powerhouse voice. She is such a great singer, and her set was enchanting.  She played a lot of guitar that night.

Black Rabbit came on next and ripped up the joint with their heavy fast punk rock. Songs like Tibbar Tibbar and Neutrino were great, and the audience was rocking hard. Sorry there are no pics or video, but most of these are from Marc Scarano, and he was really busy playing at the time.  Oh wait, now there is video:

Aurorasaurous Rex

Kiki’s Lost Nation were supposed to be next, but apparently they have rearranged the band. The new singer is Aurora and the band is Aurorasaurus Rex. Her voice was powerful and enthusiastic. The drummer was a monster and even had a short drum solo in the middle of the set. Christopher Dorian Alley played some heavy rock guitar, and I really liked their show.

Instead of closing the night, Rough Francis played next and I loved them. I’ve only caught them once, but am now upset I have not caught them more. Maybe it was the way the sound bounces in the rock wall basement, but they sounded extra heavy and rocking. Both guitar players were blisteringly fast. The bass held it all together and the drummer was a madman. He was all over the place and just pushed the songs harder and harder. Bobby Hackney, Jr was a great singer and front man. The show was nothing but fun.  Here’s a video:

Wave of the Furture

Wave of the Furture

Wave of the future followed with some heavy joyous funk rock. They pounded the stage with furious energy, and kept the audience dancing. The last time I saw them, I liked them, but wasn’t amazed. Last night, they were stunning. Tim was pretty ferocious on guitar, and at the end of the set, he and the drummer kept jamming for a bit.  You can check them out here:

When they wrapped it up, the drummer stayed and Max and JLoo took the stage. Rawsome played a couple of the boy girl back an forth songs, and a couple of wicked rockers. Seeing and hearing Jessy scream into the mic like a madwoman was glorious.

When they wrapped up, I looked at the clock. It said 3:55. We said some extended goodbyes and headed for home. I dropped really quick, and now am up and ready to face another work day. Good thing I requested to go in a bit late today!
