I just got back from my local music radio show on internet only WBKM.org. It touched on several styles of the great music we have in our town.

Songs before: Sisters – The Church Band
Wuthering Heights – Kate Bush

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I want to thank Eric and Tony for giving me this chance to show off how great of a music scene we have. Thanks for the megaphone.

1.) Megaphone – Joshua Glass Music
2.) One From Two – Linda Bassick
3.) 1.21 Jigawatts – Wave of the Future

Last Saturday was the Girls Rock Vermont showcase at Higher Ground. I missed the show but love the energy that gets put into helping girls learn to form bands and learn about the music business. People like Samara Lark Brown, who sings with Wave, and Linda Bassick are among the many people who make it happen every year. Josh’s daughter was one of the performers. Also, I caught a couple of songs by Linda and her other band, Steady Betty, yesterday. They sounded great at the packed restaurant on the water. OK, this next set is just for fun. It’s dedicated to all of the working people out there.

4.) I Got A Job – Maryse Smith
5.) I Need A Raise – Cave Bees
6.) Rejected – Black Rabbit
7.) I Quit – Blotto

Wow, that flowed nicely. Circle of the job life. OMG it’s so hot out. It’s been ’90’s for the last four days. Let’s go to the beach.

8.) Beach Song – Mr. Ray Fork
9.) Unveiled – Pours
10.) Ghost Train – Jerichovox (Dom Jerichovox)

Yesterday I stopped at Breakwaters for one beer with Steady Betty, went and saw Noodle and No Son Of Mine (metal bands) at Twofourtwo Main, then went over to Radio Bean and caught a lovely set by Jericho. That Pours song sounds so liquid it feels like you are in the water. OK, let’s play the next song from JV, the brilliant album from The Mountain Says No.

11.) Hard Times White Winds – The Mountain Says No
12.) Sober – Vedora
13.) Into The Light – Great Western

Western played a pretty smoking show at Manhattan Pizza and Pub last Saturday. Any chance that song they closed with will be recorded in time for my Halloween show later this year? After Western’s set, this next band followed with a killer show of their own.

14.) Burn Burn Burn – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
15.) Sexy Flowers – Peg Tassey MUSIC
16.) L.S. Dee – Dee Claw and Al Hotchkiss

Cool song from La Dee of Persian Claws fame. There are sexy flowers all over Burlington right now. OK, let’s jump back a bit for some classing Burlington.

17.) Gentle Rain – Jennifer Hartswick
18.) The Slow One – Ellen Powell
19.) Moxie & Gin – Pine Island.

Hmm, interesting mixture. All three are local legends. This next band should be one soon.

20.) Calypskango – Binger
21.) By My Side – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band
22.) WalkingInCircles – Raq

That song just wants to make me bounce around and smile. Killer super cool song from Kat and the band. She sounded great singing with Steady Betty yesterday. If I’d had a bit more energy yesterday, after Jerichovox at the Bean I would have gone to Nectar’s to see Binger. OK, let’s rock. Here is the song I meant to play last week.

23.) Ornan’s Song – Dirty Blondes
24.) MSP2 – ROUGH FRANCIS
25.) Green Peaks Dark Valleys – Get A Grip
26.) Weapons Factory – The Wards with the Dirty Blondes

Oh yes, Burlington can really rock. Well, I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we? Oh, wait, I have a couple of minutes left. Sayonara.

27.) Sayonara – Black Rabbit

I just got back from doing my local music radio show on internet only Wbkm Dot Org, and seeing Dino Bravo at Club Metronome, I played a bunch of really new music and a few very old songs.

Song before: When I Was New – Sarah Blacker

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds of Burlington. It’s a beautiful night in Burlington I went 20 days without seeing any live music, due to an odd series of unfortunate circumstances, but finally made it out to Radio Bean last Monday to see The Nancy Druids. They are very new so I don’t have any of their music, but if you listen to the first two songs, you can get an idea. This is Today Is Tomorrow by The Red Telephone on WBKM, and this is Burlington’s Kind Of Music.

1.)Today Is Tomorrow – The Red Telephone
2.) Still Life Scene – Envy
3.) Restaurant – The Mountain Says No
4.) Original Original – Black Rabbit

Great new song from Rabbit! They got the mighty Jane Boxall Percussion to play drums on their new album and recorded 11 songs. It will be called Red Flannel Hash and should come out on June 23rd. I’m so psyched, though I”m quite sad that Jane has left for Nashville. Come back any time!! We’ll miss you. Killer new song from Mountain. I can’t wait until they release their album! Did I mention that I loved the Nancy Druids and can’t wait to get to know their songs!. OK, let’s keep rocking through the Swale album The Next Instead.

5.) Jack Sharp – Swale
6.) Burn It Down Bernadette – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
7.) Fades To Grey – Aram Bedrosian
8.) Breakout – Sarah Blacker

Killer new song from Sarah’s album In Waves which came out Monday or Tuesday or so. She will be at the Skinny Pancake tomorrow at 7. I work until 7 but will head down as quick as I can to see how much I can see. There are some really nice songs on her new album and she sings the heck out of them! Killer new all bass only song from Aram. Love the Phil song. So, I think I want to head to the Pancake tomorrow to see Sarah then will head back to the Bean to see Rough Francis! How cool is that.

9.) MSP2 – ROUGH FRANCIS
10.) Sugar Coated Candy Stix – Dino Bravo VT
11.) Womb With A View – Heavy Plains
12.) Where Is My Mind? – The Pixies

The Pixies are in town tonight at The Flynn Theatre. I think almost everyone I know is going, but I’m here to do this show for you. Plains are on the top of my list of bands I have not seen that I really need to check out! The played Saturday with Vedora, but it was one of those bad timing missing shows things. Soon. Dino are playing at Metronome around 10:30 so I may head over after this show. OK, I’m going to play some classic old school Burlington music, but to take us there, this is the Vacant Lots.

13.) 6Am – THE VACANT LOTS
14.) Amazon – Kilimanjaro
15.) South Wind – Gordon Stone
16.) Hot Water – Pine Island

Since Pine Island are named in my intro it’s about time I played them. Nice song from Gordon. I remember seeing Kilimanjaro a long time ago and loving how smooth and elegant that they always were. I saw this guy recently when he opened for April Wine a couple of times at Higher Ground.

17.) Axe To Grind – Nobby Reed
18.) Another Round – The Eames Brothers
19.) Gothic Bloodsucker – Zola Turn
20.) Giant Mosquitoes – Cold Sweat

Sweat used to play Texas, which became Club Toast, KD Churchills, and others. I think it’s the Zen Lounge now and I think they do music again. It’s the beginning of mosquito season so I had to play the sweat song and the Zola song. Killer stuff by Nobby and Eames. Here’s another song from Sarah’s new album

21.) This Melody – Sarah Blacker
22.) Better Half – Abbie Morin
23.) The Cure (live) – Thompson Gunner
24.) Decide – David L. Jarvis

It was great to run into Dave at the Druids show. Thanks for the painting! Killer song from the Rutland band. Abbie will be at Nectar’s on Saturday. Hmmm, Sarah. This band just played a show that I missed on Saturday and will have a new album of songs, with Jane Boxall drumming, soon. Sob, we’ll miss you Jane!

25.) Low Down M2 – Vedora
26.) Deadly Wires – Ryan Ober
27.) Wisps and Watercolors – Sarah Blacker
28.) Extended Werewolf – farm

There’s only so much time indeed/ Yet another killer new Sarah song. Ryan is at Nectar’s on Saturday too. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?
