Tonight’s local music radio show on WBKM will go as follows:

Song before: I Don’t Know How To Love Him – Jesus Christ Superstar soundtrack

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I want to thank Higher Ground for sponsoring the station. They’ve got The English Beat and Of Montreal in town this week, among others. There has been a ton of great music played in town in the last few weeks and I will highlight a lot of it tonight. Let’s begin with an artist who played around town a couple of years ago, including a rock show at the Fletcher Free Library, who finally released some of her songs.

1.) High And Mighty – S.e. Ward
2.) The Worst Part – Bethany Conner Music
3.) The Birds Of Parks Slope – Eastern Mountain Time
4.) Pas d’sa Faute – Francesca Blanchard

Francesca put on a great show at Summervale a couple of weeks ago. She will be at Spruce Peak on October 1st if you want to check her out live. Great song from Sean Hood‘s band. Bethany is a young singer songwriter with lots of promise. Yea, I finally have some of S.e. Ward’s music to play. Yea. This next singer will stop by the studio and play for us live in a couple of weeks, when he gets back from Iceland.

5.) Endless War – Jeremy Gilchrist – Singer-Songwriter
6.) Happy Birthday Harry – Hana Zara
7.) More Than Gold – Ryan Fauber and Samara Lark Brown
8.) Brother Of Mine – Mike Brewster Music

I want to thank Mike for sending that song to me. I want to send that one out to my brother Ken and to everyone’s brother, whether it’s a brother by blood or a bond that is formed. Great song from Ryan and Samara. I am still thrilled about seeing Hana a couple of weeks ago at Light Club Lamp Shop. Sadly true song from Jeremy Gilchrist. OK, last week I played the last song on Lendway‘s Giant Places album so now it’s time to start a new album to play song by song, week after week, until all the songs are played. This next album has some great songs and intriguing music. The album is called Song For My Double and the band is Invisible Homes.

9.) :Little Song – Invisible Homes
10.) Ladybug – Ninja Custodian
11.) Pitseleh – Milton Busker
12.) She Has Your Name – Phil Yates & The Affiliates

Phil Yates and the band played a cool show last week at Switchback Brewing Company. I’m loving Milton’s new album You Are What You Pretend To Be. With all the new music I’m playing tonight, I had to toss in the Ninja classic. Great song from Homes. This next band shut down a section of Main St on Sunday and threw a giant party.

13.) Starman – Madila
14.) Live A Certain Life – Marco Benevento
15.) Kaleidoscope – Arc Iris
16.) Give Me All Your Love – Madaila

You just have to love Madaila for pulling off such cool shows. Great song too. Iris played Sunday night as part of the festival, but played upstairs at Club Metronome. They played Joni Mitchell’s album Blue, so they did not play that song. Hopefully, they will come back and play it for us soon. Marco and his band played on Main St and played that song from his new album The Story Of Fred Short. Hmmmm, Madaila. I want to thank Bobby Hackney Jr.for inviting me, and most of Burlington’s musicians and artists, to his birthday party recently.

17.) Black And Red – ROUGH FRANCIS
18.) Living Arrangements – The Red Summer Sun
19.) The Wolves Are Coming – Suburban Samurai
20.) Casanova With A K – Better Things

It was cool to see Sun, Samurai and Better at 242 Main recently. All three rocked hard. Hmmm, Rough Francis. I saw a band (Zeus Springsteen) that evolved out of this next band do this next song last night at The Monkey House.

21. Lights Of Montreal – Lobot
22.) Bidets And Confused – Sad Turtle
23.) Bird On The Sea – The New Siberians
24.) Such A Scene – Wood Coats

I want to thank David Anderson for turning me on to Coats. Another great new song from the Siberians. Turtle have a new album coming soon, and it sounds like it could be very good. It was so cool to see Zeus play the Lobot song. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

S.e. Ward, SadG’s, Tesla’s Revenge at Fletcher Free Library, The Mountain Says No, Wave Of The Future, Burning Monk at Nectar’s August 16, 2014   Leave a comment

I just got home from a great night of music. If I’d known the timing, I could have made the Waylon Speed & ROUGH FRANCIS boat, but working until 6, when the boat leaves at 7, was a bit iffy.

I got home around 6:20, made some food, got ready and left around 7. I went to the Fletcher Free Library, and right there, in front of the windows, was S. e. Ward playing electric guitar. The sound was a bit sparse but evoked a full band. The songs seemed to rock harder and harder as her set played out. The 20 or so people were sitting on the floor. I joined them, hard as it was. Many of her songs got me bouncing, and I need to check out her music soon!

After her show, SADGs played a hip hop set. One guy filled the sound with scratches, and the other fired out nicely articulated super-fast rhymes. I was way out of my comfort zone, but they were pretty solid.

I thought Better Things would be up next, but they said they would end the show with an acoustic set, and that NY’s Tesla”s Tesla’s Revenge would be on next. With two guitars, bass and drums they kicked out a killer set of punkish indie rock. The guitars played mostly rhythms, with a couple of hot licks here and there. The drums were powerhouse, but fluid enough to slip through all the songs changes. The bass player was pretty spectacular, and often grabbed the songs and threw them a new way. I loved everything about them, and seeing them play in a library was beautifully surreal

They wrapped up at 9:10 and The Mountain Says No were set to go on at 9:15 at Nectar’s. Thinking I had the time perfect, I walked over and stopped in front of Nectar’s and did not hear the band yet. I enjoyed chatting with Jake Styles out front for a bit, then headed in.

I got in and waited, and it was almost 10 when Mountain went on. During the wait I got to chat with Marc Scarano and Darlene Scarano for a bit, but after a while, one of those random loud jams from the stage was the band going on. They played a killer set of heavy jams and fluid open rock songs, and had me rocking from first note to last. A few songs into the set, Eric and Nathan Curtis from Gardener’s showed up. The band just got better and better including some massive guitar interplay between Jedd Kettler and Ben Maddox. I loved everything, especially Statistic and the one two closing punch of The Mountain Says No and I’m With The Bomb,

Nathan and Eric were pizza hungry, so we wandered down to Mr Mike’s for a slice. On the way back we met Theo and Erin, from Gardener’s, and talked them into coming back to the show. We hung out for a bit, then Wave of the Future sounded like they were going on. I headed as close as I could get and rocked from first note to last, minus one song. They played a couple of classics, like Super Sexy Science Party. They did a killer cover of Rock Lobster->Mesopotamia. They played the whole new EP song for song. The whole show was high energy dance music with a heavy driving rock edge. At times Luke Richer had his hands on the laptop table, but his feet were jumping. At times, Samara Lark Brown was spinning her head round and round and her hair making a centrifugal circle. The bass was driving, the drums were fast and steady. The full audience was dancing and having a great time. They rocked us hard, until we were spent, and called it a night. I always let loose when I seen them and tonight they were in perfect form.

We were getting ready to head out, but the next band, Burning Monk, a Rage Against The Machine cover band, took the stage quickly. I don’t know Rage’s music all that well, but Monk were super tight and played it really hard. Drummer Jeremy Gartner was blistering and Matthew Bryan Hagen‘s guitar kept the songs surging. After the second song, I took the easy ride home, since Nathan lives so close. It’s going to be a short/long work day tomorrow, but I have so much joy that flowed through my ears and into my heart, that I’ll find my way through.
