Song before Shine – Stoneman Douglas Drama Club

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Please join me on a ride through some deep cuts from Burlington’s past to music that was released this week. Let’s start a decade ago with an amazing song.

1.) Bad Oasis – farm
2.) Cancer – SWALE
3.) On Backstreets – Eastern Mountain Time
4.) Small Town Movie – The Cush

Movie is one of those songs that everyone always loves when they play live. Cool new song from Eastern who are at Zenbarn tonight. Cancer is from Swale’s first EP Verdigris. I want to send that out to everyone who is dealing with cancer, whether it’s you, your family or a loved one. Keep up the fight and make sure you have lots of friends to help. I love that Farm song. OK, here is the next song on Black, Blue & White.

5.) Bird On The Sea – The New Siberians
6.) Judgment Day – David Rosane & The Zookeepers
7.) Honest Will – The Parts
8.) Cemetery Walks – Ryan Ober and The Romans

Great new song from his Caveman Blues album. It was great to chat with Ryan last Monday at the Maryse Smith show. Cool new song from Danny LeFrancois and the band. I’ve played Judgment before but this is the brand new final mix from the upcoming Book Of Zoo album. Such a fantastic song from the Siberians. So, I made it out to the three Monday residency shows that Maryse has done at Light Club Lamp Shop this month. There is another opportunity next Monday. She’s played a lot of cool songs but maybe not this one.

9.) Glory Bound – Maryse Smith
10.) Luminous – Michael Chorney and Hollar General
11.) Kids – Wren Kitz
12.) Magic In This Mystery – Robin Gottfried Band

I love thinking about the magic and mystery in and around life. Robin and the band are playing Saturday at On Tap Bar and Grill. Wren will be at Autumn Records on Saturday. I chose Kids to honor all of the kids standing up to their schools and governments and TV personalities to try and stop the gun violence. Have it kids!! Michael joined Maryse last Monday and it was so wonderful to hear their guitars weave together, while Francesca Blanchard weaved her voice with Maryse’s. Next week should be pretty magical too. This next band are playing tonight at Red Square.

13.) Three Feels Right – gneiss
14.) Wanderer – Francesca Blanchard
15.) The Mists – Aram Bedrosian
16.) Crimescene – Dino Bravo VT

That’s a cool newer song from Dino that was recorded at our Robot Dog Studio session last year. Great work as always from Aram. Francesca is playing Sunday at Higher Ground. Great song from Gneiss from a Robot Dog session last year too. This next singer moved away but comes back now and then.

17.) My Hero, The Enemy – Gregory Douglass
18.) Your Downtown Aperture – Video Pigeon
19.) Bob Marley And The Hartford Whalers – The Zambonis
20.) Green Apple Girl – Cranial Perch

Perch played lovely chaotic music in the ’90’s. Zambonis played songs about hockey in the ’90’s. Pigeon had that super cool kind of mysterious sound in the ’90s’. I love the power of Hero. Here’s another band from the ’90’s.

21.) Despite The Rain – Starlight Conspiracy
22.) Tastes Like Nothing – Zola Turn
23.) Golgi Apparatus – The Pants
24.) High Water Mark – Belizbeha

Belizbeha played acid jazz in the ’90’s. That’s a cover of a Pants song. That’s the Pants covering Phish. Zola always rocked. Great song from Starlight. Let’s play another song about the power of water.

25.)The Sea Is powerful – Wide Wail
26.) Daydreaming – Thanya Iyer
27.) Ships – Anais Mitchell

Such a powerful song from Anais. Thanya are from Montreal but stopped by the Lamp Shop on Tuesday and played a great show. Wail were so great in the ’90’s. Well, I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

Swale and Gang Of Thieves at the Flynn Center for the Performing Arts December 31, 2017   Leave a comment

I had a great time seeing music New Year’s Eve at the Flynn Center for the Performing Arts. It’s always a hit or miss night for me since ,downtown is crowded and maybe there is a show I want to see and maybe not but this one was as wonderful as could possibly be imagined.

I got moving around 7 and took the lovely walk downtown. I was surprised at how few people there were on Church st. The temperature was 0,so not too bad but it seemed like most people had already left. I stopped in at the Flynn and got my button and ticket then headed over to have some glug with Peg Tassey and her family and friends. I hung out for a bit and let the tasty beverage warm my body and soul. After a bit James Lockridge and his wife Victoria showed up at the tail end of the party. We had a nice chat and as it got closer to 9 we headed out. They went home and I went on to the Flynn and got in and settled in a second row aisle seat.

At 9pm SWALE, with a 4-piece horn section, hit the stage. They opened with one of the musical sections from the new album, perhaps I’ll Start By Opening, then revved us up with All Down Tonight. The sound was nice and smooth and the large stage seemed perfect for their music. The horn section left then they lit up the room with Safe To Say. They followed with the irresistible pop sound and frightening lyric that makes Elevator so brilliant. The amped everything to maximum for Drug Laws and had me bouncing in my seat from start to finish. At the end of the song Amanda Gustafson looked at the crowd and said “stay in school.” That got a chuckle but her best line of the night was about how Swale never play new years eve shows and apparently it was because they were just waiting for the Flynn to ask. They followed with Felon which is another fantastic pop song then brought out one of the trumpet players. Waiting For You is so bright and cheery and the horn fit in perfectly. The rest of the horn section came out and filled in Beaten Down. They kept rocking on release your records, then left again. Swale rocked Everyone Likes to nice and hard. They followed with a fun and bouncy version of Loser then brought back the horns for a slow and searing Wooden Heart. Amanda mostly played her regular keyboard set but there was a grand piano on the stage. She played one of the earlier songs on it, but I did not note it so I’m not sure which one. Swale closed the show with Amanda on the piano for a version of If You Get Lost that was achingly beautiful. What a great show.

There was about a 20 minute set break then Gang of Thieves hit the stage. They have a funky rock sound and opened with a little Hendrix to set the mood. They let it go into the anthemic Raise Your Head and we were off. They rocked hard on a mix of their own songs and some tasty covers. They played original songs about loving people and working together to make the new year wonderful. They played the Beatles I Want You into I Want You Back by the Jackson 5. They encouraged everyone to get up and dance on a song about being for the nation and we did, and never sat down for the rest of the night. They played a song about taking my hand and telling me it’s alright from the new EP Totem. They played a song about Rising and Shining then brought out Nate on trumpet for a song about working together. Something about the interplay between the guitar and violin made me think of The Allman Brothers while the rhythm section was all funk. They played the Joe Cocker version of The Letter, then played a song about the beautiful people of Burlington. They closed with a song about the cold seeping in but we made it, then called it a night. It was a super high energy show and complete fun from first note to last. You’ve got to love any band that gets a Flynn crowd on it’s feet and rocking for most of the show.

It was about 11:30 as I walked out. Downtown had filled a bit with several long lines at the bars. I was feeling pretty sated and took a leisurely stroll home. The fireworks were starting just before I made it inside so I stood in the lovely cold and watched and chatted with my friends Rich Haskell and Mary Wolcott as 2017 made way for the promise of a new year.

Tonight’s local music radio show on WBKM.ORG will run from 9-11pm US Eastern Time Thursday January 4th. It can be streamed from our website or here: WBKM It will go as follows.

Song before: A Dark Light – Aram Bedrosian

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It’s winter time and the cold and snow are here. We just cruised past New Year’s Day and are diving into 2018. Let’s fill it with art and compassion and music. Let’s begin with an artist who just released a new song for the new year.

1.) Maria – Francesca Blanchard
2.) Mama – Ivamae
3.) Stormy Day – Robin Gottfried
4.) Cascade – Andriana Chobot

Andriana played a lovely show last Friday at Radio Bean and closed with that one. Robin Gottfried played a recent Thursday and I missed it but hopefully they will be back for a show I can attend soon. Ivamae played after Andriana last Friday. It was a great night. Great new song from Francesca. OK, here is the next song on Black, Blue, and White.

5.) Lead Me To Your Love – The New Siberians
6.) Raise Your Head – Gang of Thieves
7.) Happy New Year – Ninja Custodian
8.) Safe To Say – SWALE

I spent New Year’s Eve at the Flynn Center for the Performing Arts and Swale put on a wonderful show. Thieves closed the night by rocking hard. Great songs from Ninja and the Siberians. So, last night was a new episode of The X-Files and this song has been running though my head all week.

9.) The Invixibles – Black Rabbit
10.) You Will Fall – Kelly Ravin
11.) Boys Club – Peg Tassey MUSIC
12.) Dragged Around The Universe – Queen Tangerine

QT were Alice and Julia Austin‘s band after Zola Turn. They worked with Jeff Moxley who is now working with Peg to produce the upcoming album from Miriam Bernardo. I wanted to play the Peg song to remind us all that abuse of and predatory behavior are not just issues that effect large companies but also exist in our community. The local punk community is currently struggling to figure out the best way to deal with this and it’s great that they are trying. You want to encourage people who behave badly to improve but at what point will someone not change and you just have to cut ties. It’s a challenge that will hopefully create new spaces of acceptance and power for women. OK, great songs from Kelly and Rabbit. I saw Rabbit last Saturday with this next band.

13.) The Art Of Vandalay – Sad Turtle
14.) Better Half – Abbie Morin
15.) The Meanest Thing I’ll Ever Write – Milton Busker
16.) Pauses – Lowell Thompson and Crown Pilot

That’s Lowell with Bill Mullins, Kirk Flanagan, and Steve Hadeka and it’s such a cool song. Great song from Milton. He played a great version of it last week at Light Club Lamp Shop with his band The Grim Work. Great song from Abbie who is now in the band Hammydown. Turtle are so cool. OK, I’ve been watching X-Files and just got the new Twin Peaks so let’s play this song.

17.) Doppelganger – Lendway
18.) Judgment Day – David Rosane & The Zookeepers
19.) Fool That I Am – Eastern Mountain Time
20.) Think I’ll Stay – Great Western

Western used to play rocking shows around town. Fun song from Eastern. Great new song from David and the band. Cool song form Lendway. This next band are at The Monkey House on Saturday.

21.) Let The Cold In – Mr. Doubtfire
22.) Heavy Winter Heavy Snow – My First Days On Junk
23.) Mush – Phantom Suns
24.) You’re The Target – Casey Merlin Rae

Nice rocker from Casey. Cool song from Ryan Cohen and his band. Great songs from Junk and Doubtfire. This was one of my first favorite prog bands who would come to town now and then.

25.) Hey Ernie – Cold Sweat
26.) Errol McSquisitor – Elephants of Scotland
27.) The Road – Anders Parker
28.) Mr Reed – Seth Yacovone Band
