The Monkey House 10 year anniversary party December 17, 2016   Leave a comment

I had a great time celebrating the 10 year anniversary of The Monkey House a couple of Saturday’s ago. I had to be up a bit early for work but got out at 4:30 then went home to eat dinner and settle for a bit. A little after 6 I headed out the door and took the long walk to Winooski.

When I arrived Parmalee was on stage. He played keys and bass and sang. Most of the songs had an electronic dance beat though everything moved and breathed enough to not be too easy to spot. A couple of the songs had huge builds to them and I really enjoyed those parts. I caught six of his songs including one about not passing it off on somebody else, and one about running like a dog. The third one I caught was especially drifty and dreamy and was my favorite. He closed the set with a Parmaga cover that went something like “I will take no more than I make.” His set was really good and worth looking into for the future.

There was a short set break then Phil Yates & The Affiliates hit the stage hard. Their short set was blisteringly fast and super fun. They opened with Burn Burn Burn then played a couple of cool new ones. Ninjas Vs Zombies was great as always and they kept the pace at full throttle with Burn It Down Bernadette. The eased up a tiny amount for the gorgeous She Has Your Name and closed fast and furious with Little French Earthquakes. What a great set!

There was a short set break then Colin Nicholas Clary and friends hit the stage. Sometimes their music is on the gentle side but that night they put the core in Cuddle Core. The whole set rocked hard and I loved every moment. I don’t think I knew any of the songs but like them all. The eleven short songs included ones about sanctuary cities, goody goody gumdrops, and being almost as cute as I used to be. They closed with a rocker about how everybody’s falling apart these days. It was a terrific set of music.

There was a short set break then Paper Castles hit the stage. Again, I don’t think I knew any of the songs but the band were on fire and played a tremendous show. They played five songs with themes like best friend the end and coincidence & accidents. They had a majestic huge rock sound and closed with the super appropriate song that said “I want you inside this house”.

There was a short set break then Tyler Daniel Bean hit the stage. With a heavy indie rock or metal sound they played a furious set of music. The opener was long and heavy and beautiful. Willow I and II were brilliant. I did not know the closer but it rocked super hard. Their set was nothing but brilliant power.

There was a short set break then SWALE hit the stage. Since all the other bands rocked hard, they stuck to their heavy side for their five song set. They opened with Everyone Likes To then unleashed the brilliant Drug Laws. They rocked hard on a couple of new ones then had a little fun with Youth Against Fascism. They had the lyrics on cards and had a couple of people come up and show the lyric then toss the card away much like Dylan did with the Subterranean Homesick Blues video. It was so great.

There was a short set break then In Memory Of Pluto hit the stage. Unfortunately, singer Seth Gallant’s car broke down so bassist Zach Jandl sang for their brilliant set. I did not know any of the songs but loved them all. I think they said they were an alien metal band and rocked out seven powerhouse songs. The opener was about a death ray and the second was about Halloween. Whatever they played, I really liked it.

There was a short set break then Blue Button hit the stage. With Jason Cooley singing and playing guitar, they had a three guitar attack to compliment the bass and drums. I’ve seen a few different combinations of the band over the years but I think this was my first with three axes. Their sound was huge and glorious and I loved every moment of the set. They opened with an epic instrumental then rocked out My Bitter End. They played a great new one about City Hall Park then played a blistering We’re Closed. Another great new one followed then they ripped apart Burning Bridges. They closed with a rocking version of Hit but slowed it at the end into a moody bluesy groove. It sounded familiar and I soon realized someone could easily start singing “Let it come on down, in the midnight hour” to it. Amanda Gustafson mentioned that she had never seen them do that, and neither had I.

The sound volume had been creeping up all evening so I moved back a comfortable distance as Dino Bravo VT hit the stage. They rocked hard and loud and opened with an instrumental that reminded me a bit of Drug Laws. They followed with Sugar Coated Candy Stix, then rocked out Pop Music. They teased Cortez The Killer for a bit then settled into Two Car Garage. The harmony guitars of Strawberry Blonde were lovely then they went Past The Mark. They played something about Merry Christmas I Don’t Want To Fight then closed with the Ween classic Birthday Boy.

It was so cool to see so many bands play 30 minute sets. It let each one stretch out a little and still afforded a huge variety of music. The entire night saw the club packed with fun loving people. The club brought in a couple of rounds of free pizza and Ren Weiner brought some of her classic doughnuts. It was a wonderful celebration of a club that has brought lots of great music and community to our lives. Thanks Monkey House!! Keep up the great work!!

2.) Not On Christmas Eve – Eastern Mountain Time
3.) The Last Carol – The Cush
4.) Down In Yon Forest – The Plastic Billionaires

24.) A Different Machine – Elephants of Scotland

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

Song before: New Americana – Halsey

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I have been so inspired by Bernie’s valiant run for President. No matter what happens next, he has gotten his message out to the people in staggering ways. He has inspired people in ways that we will not understand for years, but we do have some music that has been inspired by his highest ideals. Let’s begin tonight with some of those.

1.) Bernie Is A Punk – BERN UNIT
2.) Feel The Bern – Violint Wednesday
3.) We Shall Overcome – Bernie Sanders and 30 Vt Musicians

His message is so wonderfully inspiring and I’m glad he has the chance to spread it to so many people. OK, here is the last song on Callisto. I will have to pick a new album to play all the way through next week.

4.) Skydiving – Alpenglow
5.) Violet – Sneakers Jazz Band – Live at White Crow
6.) Rocket – Soule Monde I Burlington, VT

Soule will play around at Jazzfest. I had to play Violet since the Sneakers band are so great. What a lovely way to end the Callisto album. OK, Soule are also playing a few shows with Josh Weinstein and Bob Wagner at Nectar’s as Soule Indomitable so let’s play a Kat Wright song.

7.) Let’s Move – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band
8.) Aerosol Ball – The Felice Brothers
9.) Zigzagging Toward The Light – Conor Oberst

I really enjoyed the Connor show with the Felice Brothers at Higher Ground last Tuesday and wanted to play some of their music. Great song by Kat and the band. On Monday I got to see a cool band called Silver Bridget. I don’t have any of their music to play but they did a great version of this next song. This next song is a cover of a classic as performed by a band who will play the top of the block on Church St on Friday Night.

10.) Starman – Madaila
11.) See Me On My Way – Superhuman Happiness
12.) Rise – Barika
13.) ComeTooLate – Paper Castles

14.) Could You be The One? – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
15.) Chopped And Channeled – Barbacoa
16.) The Big One – The High Breaks

22.) Iron And Metal – The Mountain Says No
23.) Roll Me – The Cush
24.) The Perfect Map – Elephants of Scotland
25.) Be A Good Citizen – Pinhead

I thought I’d end where I began by speaking about citizenship. Great new song from Elephants. I love that song by The Cush. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we? See Ya. Ta Ta. Goodbye

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It’s been a super warm, maybe in the 70’s, day and it’s warm this evening. A lot of people are out and about and enjoying the night. Today is the 5th of November, the day Guy Fawkes tried to blow up Parliament. As we have evolved over the years, there is less of a need for such drastic action. In fact, all we have to do is elect reasonable and compassionate and smart people, and we could have a great government. Maybe one day. Tonight, let’s begin with Burlington itself. It was founded in 1865 and was a major lumber mill port that brought wood from Quebec to the eastern US. Early on, it was called the Queen City of New England. Let’s begin with some Burlington music about queens.

1.) Rock ‘n Roll Queen – Peg Tassey MUSIC
2.) We Rock Out 2 Queen – Rue Mevlana
3.) Queen Of Hostility – Doll Fight
4.) I’d Hate To Be Me – Queen Tangerine

Some of the regal music from Burlington. It’s interesting to see how we have evolved. We began by needing a strong leader, and have moved to a system were we can govern ourselves more and more. If we are cool about it, we have a lot of potential. OK, last Friday I caught a ton of cool music. I started with this band, although the set I caught was them covering the Elvis Costello album Blood and Chocolate. This is the next song from No Need To Beg.

5.) Drinking For Two – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
6.) I Forgot – Maryse Smith
7.) Singing – Arc Iris
8.) King Grifter – The Mountain Says No
9.) I Think I’m Turning Into A Robot – Wave of the Future

I began the night at The Skinny Pancake to see Phil’s first set, then hustled to Light Club Lamp Shop to catch Maryse Smith‘s stunning set. Arc Iris followed and were amazing as always. I hustled over to Finnegan’s and missed Mountain, but caught some of Wave’s wonderful set, including that fun song. There’s a fun show at Finnegan’s tomorrow with some of the guys in Rough Francis playing as Aspero Siacos, and a couple of other cool bands, like this one.

10.) Hungry – Heavy Plains
11.) Destroying Everything They See – Blue Button
12.) MSP2 – ROUGH FRANCIS

It will be interesting to see what AS sound like, but other two will certainly be killer. Saturday is the day Radio Bean has it’s birthday. As always they will have bands play from 8am to 2am, with about 15 minutes per band. This next band always kick it off.

13.) Chuck Berry – Dino Bravo VT
14.) Toejam – The Toes
15.) The Mime – Joe Adler & The Rangers Of Danger
16.) One More Sunset – Violet Ultraviolette

I’m psyched to see all of those bands play. I’m psyched to see these next ones too.

17.) ComeTooLate – Paper Castles
18.) Gonna Stay Up All Night Long – The Eames Brothers
19.) Pauses – Lowell Thompson and Crown Pilot
20.) Crow King – Binger

I’m sorry I missed Binger playing the Scooby Doo show last weekend but am psyched to catch up with them this Saturday. All of those bands rocked, but there will be a lot of music played that day. Here are some of the mellower bands that will play.

21.) Guitar – Michael Chorney and Hollar General
22.) Windy Pines – Kat Wright and Brett Hughes
23.) Matter Of Time – Eric George
24.) Puff The Magic Dragon – Linda Bassick

I’m not sure if Linda is playing kids songs or older people’s songs or both, but it will be fun to find out. I may have to catch Eric for the first time. Kat and Brett always sound nice. Sweet song from Michael. This next song is by Caroline Marie, who has played every Bean Birthday.

25.) Once Upon – Vedora
26.) The Night Syd Barret Died – Colin Nicholas Clary
27.) By My Side – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band
28.) The Next Instead – Swale

I’m thoroughly excited to see Swale already, is it Saturday yet?. Kat and the band are always great. I finally got the see Emily play joke in Barret. I bet he plays that one, what with the Radio Bean references and all. Killer song from Caroline. Songs 13 to 28 are just a tiny hint of what that day will sound like. Is it Saturday yet??? OK, let’s end where we began, with another song from the Queen herself, then I will say goodbye.

29.) I Remember/The Jam – Peg Tassey
30.) Sayonara – Black Rabbit

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds of Burlington. It was an eventful week in our country and solar system. Lots of good and bad things happened. The coolest thing was the eclipse of the moon. It really gives you a perspective of your place in the universe, and shows the complex beauty of this place we get to live in. Celestial events are one of the universal things that everyone can share in. Children are another. We can all relate to the idea of getting older and seeing children born and growing and see the magnificent cycle of life. We have a local artist who plays music for kids every Friday at the Radio Bean. She just released an album of those songs. This is one of my favorites and always reminds me of the magic of life. This is Puff The Magic Dragon by Linda Bassick on WBKM, and this is Burlington’s kind of music.

1.) Matter Of Time – Eric George
2.) Puff The Magic Dragon – Linda Bassick
3.) Rame – Francesca Blanchard
4.) Moonlight In Vermont – Willie Nelson

I just loved seeing the moon and wanted to play that one and be reminded of this summer when Neil Young had Lucas Nelson sing that one for us at the Essex Fairgrounds show. Francesca is releasing her new album Saturday in Stowe. If you like that song, check it out. Sorry about mixing up the first two song. Live radio, what can you do? If you like the Eric song, he’s releasing the album tomorrow at the North End Studio. Great song from Linda. I may get to more later. OK, here is the next song on No Need To Beg.

5.) Grass Is Always Greener – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
6.) The Night Syd Barret Died – Colin Nicholas Clary
7.) Boys With Guns – Chin Ho
8.) Film Called Life – Jer Coons

Jer has made a lot of cool music to add to our town. I wanted to play a Chin song and picked that one because of yet another school shooting in our country. As long as we have lots of legislators who identify as pro life and pro gun, we can expect these sorts of things to keep happening. One of these days maybe we will get tired of it and find ways to stop it from happening. I saw Colin play that song at Radio Bean a couple of weeks ago. He was so nice to send me a copy. I love that it mentions Radio Bean, Pearls, The Monkey House and Club Metronome. It also mentions a band. Keep that in mind for later. Great song from Phil Yates and the band. This next song has been running through my head this week, so I thought I’d share.

9.) ComeTooLate – Paper Castles
10.) It’s Happening – Anachronist
11.) Good Witch – Cricket Blue
12.) The Lion Sleeps Tonight – Linda Bassick

Another fun song from Linda. Sweet song from Cricket. I love that song from Anachronist! OK, sit back, relax, light up some incense, flip on the lava lamp. Let’s drift for a while.

13.) Armadillo – Swale
14.) Galactic Cannibalism – Wobblesauce
15.) The High Pass – Ozric Tentacles

Ozric are an English space rock band who played last Tuesday at Higher Ground. It was such a great show and I love how fast and fluid Ed is on the guitar. Wobble are from Boston and were the first band on. They were pretty fun and did a great version of that one. I’m sure they will be back. Hmmm, Swale. OK, let’s rock. This band was mentioned in the Colin Clary song.

16.) Round Sum – Cave Bees
17.) Be Aggressive – BE AGGRESSIVE
18.) Imaginary – Envy
19.) Comm To Space – ROUGH FRANCIS

It’s so stunningly cool that we found actual water on Mars. I had to play the Francis song to celebrate. Killer song from Envy. Be just played Metronome with the Queers and a couple other bands. I like the Cave Bees too. I still have dad’s car for a bit so Tuesday night I made the last minute decision to go see Ozric. It was raining so hard I could barely see. I took Patchen road to get there, since I couldn’t drive faster than 25mph anyway. The other day Andrew X Smith asked people to post rain songs, so I posted this one.

20.) Left One In The Rain – Alice Austin
21.) In The Rain – Plan B
22.) Despite The Rain – Starlight Conspiracy

Sweet song from Burlington’s ’90’s. I have so many fond memories of seeing Plan Be at Nectar’s, all those years ago. Killer Alice Austin song. So, have you ever gone to a show. Have you ever been in the know, or gone to a show with someone in the know? Have you ever had backstage passes?

23.) BS Passes – Black Rabbit
24.) You Are My Sunshine – Linda Bassick
25.) So They Say – The New Siberians
26.) Statistik – The Mountain Says No

Love that song from Mountain. Is it time for the new Siberians album yet? Another fun song from Linda. Well, I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we? Sayonara.

27.) Sayonara – Black Rabbit
