Andriana Chobot

I had a great time seeing music last Friday at the South End Art Hop, ArtsRiot, and Red Square. Every year, artists have a weekend to show how amazing they are and fill the South End of Burlington with art. There are tons of galleries with paintings, sculpture, and other creative endeavors. There are lots of bands playing around and it’s always a good time. This year, I looked and did not see much music listed. The one show that caught my eye was Clever Girls at 8 with Rough Francis to follow.

I had a relaxing day off and was focused on the show, when I looked at 7 Days and saw a cool show listed at 4pm. I was a little slow out the door and walked into Red Square about 4:15. Andriana Chobot was onstage singing and playing keys and Cody Sargent played drums. He added a nice rhythm to the songs and his cymbal work was lovely. Andriana has a gorgeous powerful voice and plays keys in a way that keeps my heart rising. She sang about manifest destiny and dropped in a cover of Regina Spektor’s Ode To Divorce. My Old House had some nice keyboard flourishes and Another Day was magical. She sang about Galaxy Eyes and Coffee then said all she wanted is a bit of your heartbeat. She sang about how winter is coming then took a short set break. They returned with a song about The Cure then continued with a playful song about see saws. Dig Him rocked, Cascade soared then we took a ride into the wilds of Vermont. She sang a Carole King inspired song about changing my mind then dropped a cool cover of Ain’t No Sunshine. Neon had an appropriately dark glow and Not I melted my heart. They kept driving on then closed the set with Alone In The Night. Wow, I had not made it to Art Hop yet and had already heard 19 great songs.

The Ramparts

I left quickly and walked south. I caught a couple of songs by a band in a parking lot that may have been The Ramparts. They sounded cool but said there was music happening at the Green Door, and that is always one of the best Art Hop shows. I ran into Charlie Messing and we headed to a nearby gallery filled with rooms and lovely works of art. We ran into Frank DeAngelis and I was dazzled by his work. We then headed over to the space up behind ArtsRiot but no one was on. Danny LeFrancois said The Parts would be playing later but the timing conflicted with my primary objective. Oh well. Charlie wandered off and I remembered a building on the corner of Pine and Howard that seemed to have a lot of galleries. I walked up stairs and through doors and each one had more and more fantastic paintings. I followed hallways and found cool little rooms, I followed corridors and found more rooms full of art. I took one turn and found a room where music was about to be played. It was close to 8 but I had to hang and check some of it out. A dark video began and Ouzkxqlzn began to play. I grabbed a seat in awe as she worked the wrench over the guitar. I love the sounds she finds and weaves into a spell. About 10 of 8 I ripped myself away and went in search of Clever Girls. They were setting up and Diane Jean said they would go on around 8:30. I raced back to the building and back through the maze and somehow found the show room again then settled in for the end of Lauren’s set. I hung out as Adrienne Cooper Smith spoke about the mixture of the video she made and the sound of the music. A band got up to play and I think they did their own improvisation to the same video. I’m guessing Adrienne did the same at some point on her electric banjo. I’ve just got to figure out how to be in two, or more, places at once.

IMG_0546

Ouzkxqlzn

I listened to the bands cool sound for a bit then headed back to Speaking Volumes and ran into Peg Tassey. We chatted a bit with Dan Davine, then Clever Girls began to play. They opened with a hard hitting blues rock jam then dropped it into Catch And Release. Dumb Smile was pretty intense for a slower song then Diane screamed out the 1 2 3 4 opening to Loose Tooth. They sang about tilting your head back and waiting for this to pass, playing hide and seek, and rocked Junior nice and hard. Loom was heavy and powerful and Hannah Wants To See You soared. The closed with a blistering version of Heavy and we were in a happy place.

IMG_0566

Clever Girls

I ducked out to see what was happening at ArtsRiot. Barbacoa were onstage, so I grabbed a drink and went to the front. They played a surf rock instrumental western then dropped a cool Paint It Black. They played a song with lyrics about how you are my dreamy girl then rocked out Love Takes It’s Toll On Me. They surfed through Venus In Spurs and my internal alarm went off and I headed back to SV.

IMG_0578

Barbacoa

I ran into Charlie again and chatted with a bit then the next band were about to hit. I almost made it past the merch table clean, but caught the edge of the cloth and sent a couple of things flying. I turned to help but Nicole Hackney was already on it. Sorry about that. Thanks for cleaning up my klutziness. I found a spot near Matthew Kloss and ROUGH FRANCIS began to play. They opened hard with I-90 East and followed with a song about coming together called Ruffians. They sang about werewolves on MSP2, then lit into Big Box Law Enforcement. A short way in, the power blew out leaving nothing but Urian Hackney‘s drums. Bobby Hackney Jr. had a fun chat with the crowd and quickly, the power came back. They launched back into Box and the power blew again on the first note. It quickly came back, and with an amazing boldness of spirit, they launched into it again. The power stayed on and the show continued. Julian Hackney played some ripping guitar leads, Paul rocked his guitar and danced hard, while Dan stood back and used his bass to anchor the songs. They rocked us with Geese and Pandas then went back to the first album for Home Invasion. They slowed things down with the anti-fascist Walk On By, then rocked out Retrosexual. They kept the fury going with Methmouth then let it fall into a jam. A guy from the audience stepped up a bit and began dancing, maybe break dancing, and delighted the crowd and the band. The jam amped up and they ripped through Earthquake then rocked out Procession 1. They lit into the familiar notes of Comm To Space as we rocked out “in the midnight hour”. They brought it to its thunderous conclusion, and as they were about to ramp up into the ending section, the power blew again. Undaunted, when it quickly returned they quickly ripped out the ending and called it a night. They are always great.

I headed out quickly in search of one more band, but it was after 10 and everything was shutting down. I let the exhaustion of the day wash over me, then took the lovely walk home.

Tonight’s local music radio show on WBKM.ORG will run from 9-11pm US Eastern time Thursday September 13. You can stream it from the website, or here: WBKM It will go as follows.

Song before: Piano Music – Porcupine Tree

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I’ve been enjoying the new album Hardly Electronic from this opening band, so let’s begin with some piano music.

1.) In The Key Of Me – The Essex Green
2.) When The Nights Get Long – Carraway
3.) Cascade – Andriana Chobot
4.) Adventure Safari – The Mountain Carol

It was so cool when Carol came in for a session of Live From Robot Dog Studio and instead of playing the electronic keys, Bruce played Ryan Cohen‘s sweet sounding piano. Great song from Andriana. I caught a couple of sets of her music last Friday at Red Square. She was as amazing as always. Great song and huge build from Carraway and super cool song form Essex. OK, the big event in town this weekend is Grace Potter’s Grand Point North festival. Be sure to get there early. Here are some of the great bands who are opening the show.

5.) Falter – Julia Caesar
6.) Soul No. 5 – Caroline Rose
7.) The Violent Stain Of My Bleeding Heart – Seth Yacovone Band
8.) Flaca Daza – Miku Daza
9.) Loose Tooth – Clever Girls

All of those bands are going to rock GPN hard. Caroline has gotten big but spent a lot of time in town. I’m so excited for both days and will be there early. I saw Clever Girls play a brilliant show last weekend at Art Hop. This next band came on after and played a blistering show. Last week, I played the last song on The Uncanny Doom Service, so let’s begin playing MSP3 Counter Attack, song after song, week after week, until it’s wrapped up.

10.) Big Box Law Enforcement – ROUGH FRANCIS
11.) Still Life Scene – Envy
12.) Whirlpool Rider – The High Breaks
13.) Mighty Have Fallen – Barbacoa

They played a brilliant show at Robot Dog Studio last week and that song really caught me. Cool new song from the Breaks. Classic from Envy. Great song from Francis who use the new album to stare racism in the face and offer peace and love as a counter attack. This song has been running through my head lately, so hopefully it will get stuck in your too.

14.) Automatic Sweetheart – Hammydown
15.) On My Way – Hover
16.) Veratrum – Piqued
17.) Fool That I Am – Eastern Mountain Time

Cool song from a band who have lots of shows scheduled all around Vermont. I wanted to revisit the song from Piqued, since it’s so cool. I hope they stop by town soon. Classic from the ’90’s from Hover. Great song from Hammy. OK, this next artist has put out a few cool albums but when he plays with his band he sounds just a little different. Here’s a song form his upcoming album.

18.) Gravity – Milton Busker & The Grim Work
19.) Loser – SWALE
20.) Underheard – Ivamae
21.) Silent River – Steady Betty

Betty’s songs always put me in a happy place. I hope it does the same for you. Great song from Ivamae. When I think of happy songs with depressing lyrics, I think of Swale. I think Milton is proving himself just as able. OK, last night I finally caught up with this singer in a movie theater at The Double E. This song digs into the pros and cons of life in America in a visceral way. The song after is the story of a kid asking mom why she would bring a child into this world. I think you’ll like the answer.

22.) Which America – Jason Baker
23.) Love – Hana Zara
24.) The Divine Feminine – Ouzkxqlzn
25.) Super Powers – The Dead Shakers

I love that song from the Shakers. I caught Lauren Costello playing at Art Hop, and despite calling her band an unpronounceable name, she is completely amazing. Hana asks mom why she was brought into the world. Mom says to fill you with love and to send you into the world to spread it. Great, if somewhat harsh, song form Jason. OK, he finished this year’s library tour, but has begun to book next years. What a cool way to support Vermont’s libraries.

27.) This City – David Rosane & The Zookeepers
28.) Give It Up To The Night – Bad Smell
29.) Infinity Pools – The Smittens
30.) Ghosts – Troy Millette Music
31.) Rainy Alley – Totally Submerged

Wishing the best for the people in the Carolina’s. Cool song from Submerged. Great song from Troy. I’m loving the new Smittens album City Rock Dove and expect to keep diving deeper. Super cool song from Smell and great song from David. Well, I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

Hana Zara at Light Club Lamp Shop and Rough Francis, Cave Bees, and Jessica Rabbit Syndrome at Higher Ground August 11, 2018   Leave a comment

Hana Zara pic by Tim Lewis

I had a great time seeing music Saturday at Light Club Lamp Shop and Higher Ground. I got out of work at 5:30 and had time to eat and hang out at home before driving downtown. I parked near the lamp shop and got in and settled.

The room slowly filled as Hana Zara took the stage and got ready to play. A group of people walked in and sat in the back and began chatting. Hana asked if we were ready to listen, and they quieted down. The room was virtually silent as she opened with a couple of songs about love and being yourself. She began with one about a final battle cry that is one of love and followed with a song about how that being deep inside you will be your guide. She recommended finding it and saying hi. She played a song about disastrous relationships called The Cats and a sequel that was inspired by going to an ex’s house and psyche. It was called Little Fires and the room stayed transfixed. She played a song about the people out destroying the Earth called The Toy then a sequel that she had finished earlier in the day. It was about change and how we are the the thing that is changing. She quietly sang Hooray Hoorah to close the set. The audience wanted more so she played House Of Mirrors for a friend in Nebraska. She is an amazing performer and always fills my heart.

Jessica Rabbit Syndrome pic by Tim Lewis

I said a quick goodbye and zipped out the door. I drove to Higher Ground and could hear a band playing as I walked in the door. I got into the room as they were wrapping it up. Jessica Rabbit Syndrome said they had one more and rocked out a song called Bacchus D. They had a heavy stomping indie grunge sound that made me wish I had arrived earlier. I need to catch them for real soon.

I chatted with a few cool people in the star-packed room then Cave Bees took the stage. They opened hard and fast with Mine All Mine then let loose the 22-R, I Need A Raise had a slower stomp then they kicked it back up with Round Sum. I Don’t Need This Anymore rocked hard then we started riding The Golden Goose. They eased back to a ’50’s groove for Muskrat Love but were back at full speed for the laser beam eyes part at the end. They rocked the Queen City then sang about the Lunacy. Juliet kept up the furious pace and Sister Blue was nice and heavy. They closed with Sweet Pussy and I was in a happy place.

IMG_0121

Cave Bees pic by Tim Lewis

I hung out for the set break then Colin Nicholas Clary walked on stage and put on a record. The intro music was fun then ROUGH FRANCIS took the stage. They opened fast and heavy with I-90 East and kept up the pace for Ruffians. MSP2 rocked hard then they eased up a little for Don’t Look Back. By the end of the song Paul was in the audience shredding on his guitar. Not A Nice guy was furious. I missed the name of the next one but it put the audience over the edge and the mosh pit began. They finally got to the album they had just released and rocked Big Box Law Enforcement hard. Geese and Good Person kept the intense pace then they eased up for the anti-Nazi song Walk On By. They brought the energy back up with Retrosexual then warned us of the dangers of Meth Mouth. They told us of the Earthquake that is coming and closed the set with a powerhouse version of Procession 1. The audience encore call was a bit anemic but they were gracious enough to come back anyway. Comm To Space is one of the greatest songs and they played an epic version.

I headed out pretty quickly and took the quick drive home. I’m so lucky to have so much great music always around me.

Song before: Alone In The Night – Andriana Chobot

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to open with a serious heavy song or a fun happy one, so let’s do both.

1.) Elevator – SWALE
2.) You Gotta Move – Hayley Jane and the Primates
3.) Don’t Tell Me To Smile – The Red Newts
4.) Love Me Forever – Steady Betty

That is such a lovely song from Betty. I agree with the Newts that you should never tell a woman she has to smile. She can figure out whatever expression she chooses. Nice rocker from the Primates and great song from Swale. I want to thank Ben Slotnick – Mandolinist for turning me on to this next artist.

5.) Feeling Small – Abby Sherman
6.) Liar – Maryse Smith
7.) [name] – Adrienne Cooper Smith
8.) Modern Love – Ouzkxqlzn

That’s such a cool take on the Bowie song. Lauren Costello is just amazing. I love the electric banjo on Adrenne’s song. That’s a classic from Maryse and a great new song from Abby. OK, this next artist is back in town and is playing a show Saturday the 11th at Light Club Lamp Shop, and a lot of us are excited. Here is a set of her music.

9.) Lithuania – Hana Zara
10.) The Cats – Hana Zara
11.) Megan’s Song – Hana Zara
12.) Hartford – Hana Zara
13.) Womb Of Amanda – Hana Zara

14.) Brothers And Sisters – Joe Adler
15.) Paint It Black – Silver Bridget
16.) L Ron Hubbard – Humble Hero
17.) Black, Blue, And White – The New Siberians

Great rocker from the Siberians. Hubbard is such a fun song, I had to play it again. Cool cover from the masters of cool covers. Great song from Joe. OK, here is the next song on The Uncanny Doom Service.

18.) Collider – Doom Service
19.) Not True – Peg Tassey MUSIC
20.) Vampire Queen – Nechromancer
21.) Space Odyssey – Aliendog
22.) Doomed Convoy – Wolfhand

I got to see Wolfhand and Nechromancer at Nectar’s on Monday and both were really cool. I caught Aliendog a couple of weeks ago and loved their show. I’m psyched I have a song to play now. Great songs from Peg and Doom. This next band are doing a release party for their new album MSP3 Counter Attack on Saturday at Higher Ground. OK, enough of me, let’s just listen to music for a while.

23.) Big Box Law Enforcement – ROUGH FRANCIS
24.) Queen City – Cave Bees
25.) Lean In – When Particles Collide
26.) Walk On By – Rough Francis
27.) Book Of Zoo – David Rosane & The Zookeepers
28.) Super Powers – The Dead Shakers
29.) Oh You! – You’re You! – Ruckzuck

Such a great song from Ruckzuck. Hopefully, they will come back and visit again soon. I love that Shakers song. It was great seeing David and the Zookeepers in a library in Fairfax. The tour continues to Vergennes tonight. I love how Francis are staring racism in the face and fighting for justice for all, the way it should be. Particles will stop by town in a few weeks, so I wanted to get you ready. Bees are opening for Francis on Saturday. Well, I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

Song before: It’s Just A Ride – Bill Hicks

inro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the sounds of Burlington. I can seen you and you are amazing. You are beautiful. You can let that shine into our world at any time. Let out your super powers.

1.) Super Powers – The Dead Shakers
2.) Interstellar Kid – Jeremy Gilchrist – Singer-Songwriter
3.) Chosen Names – Julia Caesar
4.) Girl, Friend – T-Rextasy

Rex are from New York but stopped by town last Saturday to play at the Ramble showcase down by North st and North ave. They were so fun. Julia opened that show. Great new song form Jeremy’s new album Threaded. I love that new song from the Shakers. More about that in a bit. OK, here’s a delightful song from a delightful band.

5.) Red Rose – The Zii Trees
6.) Don’t You Wanna Know – The Thursday Torys
7.) St Patrick’s Day – Carraway
8.) Morning Again – Doll Fight

I miss Fight. They rocked so hard. Super cool song form Carraway. Great song from the Torys new album Future Folk. I’m sure I’ll get more on the air in the next few weeks. OK, here is the next song on The Uncanny Doom Service album. It’s cool that they tossed in a couple of clips of the Twilight Zone episode that this song was written about.

9.) Monsters Are Due On Maple Street – Doom Service
10.) Don’t Want To Know If You Are Lonely – Black Rabbit
11.) Ornan – Dirty Blondes
12.) Chum On The Drums – Bee Bee Sea

I don’t know it for sure, but it really sounds like Sea are singing Ornan is a chum so I had to play it with the Blondes song to celebrate the wonderful person Ornan McLean. He’s been through more than anyone should have to go through lately. We love you Ornan. Great cover from Rabbit and great rocker from Doom. Is it really that easy to dupe us humans? Sigh. OK, relax, get nice and chill, get yourself in a happy mood and let’s go. Let’s take a dive into a new album called All Circles Vanish.

13.) Can You Take Me Back – The Dead Shakers

15.) Headless – The Dead Shakers
16.) Taung Child – The Dead Shakers
17.) Websdr.ewi.utwente.nl-8901 – The Dead Shakers
18.) I Will Bow And Be Simple – The Dead Shakers

That is such a fun and trippy album. There’s a lot more to it but that’s a nice chunk. Thanks for being so amazing Kevin Bloom! OK, I’ve been playing a lot of short songs tonight. Let’s stretch out a little.

19.) Random Earth – Elephants of Scotland
20.) Lines And Spaces – The Cancer Conspiracy
21.) Purpose and Object – The Contrarian
22.) The Road – Anders Parker

That’s such an amazing song from Anders. Great song from Casey Rae. Cancer played around in the ’90’s and still do shows now and then. I’m not sure what’s happening with the Elephants now that Ornan is no longer drumming for them. Either way, that’s a cool song. OK, this next band played the Ramble show too.

23.) Gorilla Monsoon – Barbacoa
24.) Who Do You Love? – The Red Newts
25.) My Life In The West – David Rosane & The Zookeepers
26.) It’ll Be OK – Let’s Whisper

I love that song from Whisper. David and the band are continuing their series of shows in Vermont libraries. They will be in Fairfax tomorrow and I may have to catch that one. I chose West for obvious reasons. After the show at the Ramble I walked the 10 or 20 feet over to The Old North Ender and caught some songs by the Newts. They played a fun version of that one and some cool original tunes that I will have to track down soon. Barbacoa are just amazing. OK, let’s take a deep dive into Heavy Flow, the new album from Julia Caesar

27.) Falter – Julia Caesar
28.) Nose Dive – Julia Caesar
29.) Ode To the River – Julia Caesar
30.) Hear Me Now – Julia Caesar

Such a great album from such a great band. It’s going to be fun to see where they go with it. OK, let’s play another new song from Jeremy.

31.) It’s Hard To Resist – Jeremy Gilchrist
32.) Parasite – Miku Daza
33.) Procession 1 – ROUGH FRANCIS

Such great songs from such thoughtful artists. Well, I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?
