Swale 016

 

Tonight’s local music radio show will run from 9-11pm US eastern time April 6, 2017. It will go as follows.

Song before: Bobcaygeon – The Tragically Hip

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Let’s begin tonight with a couple of songs about lion taming.

1.) Just Another Day – The Nancy Druids
2.) Lion Tamer – Carraway
3.) Black 17 – The New Siberians
4.) Parking Lot – Villanelles

Villanelles keep playing that song for us. Thanks guys. Great song from Siberians. Considering the line from the Druids song, I just had to follow it with the Carraway. OK, here is the next song on By My Side.

5.) I Do – Kat Wright
6.) Crazy – Clever Girls
7.) Trouble Come No More – Cricket Blue
8.) My Hero, The Enemy – Gregory Douglass

Gregory is coming to Higher Ground on Sunday. Thanks for sponsoring our station HG. Cricket will open that show. Great songs from Clever and Kat. Do you ever travel just for the ride?

9.) Ever Travel – The Red Telephone
10.) Drivin’ All Alone – The Parts
11.) Moving Song – Zola Turn
12.) Wally Rides The Ferry – Zoot Wilson

Great song from the ’80’s. Zola Rocked us in the ’90’s. Telephone rocked us in the 00’s and the Parts are rocking us now. So, if you like punk head to Jim’s basement on Saturday for these next two bands.

13.) Blank Daze – Mr. Doubtfire
14.) Blue Lights – Sink or Swim
15.) Blue Light Shines – Gabrielle Douglas and the Dwellers
16.) Something I Drew – farm

It was fun chatting with Brent Hallenbeck last night about our local music scene. I was on Rocket Shop on Big Heavy World last night to announce that all of my show write-ups, past and future, will be part of BHW. Brent was a great host and we both liked Farm and The Cush. We were sad that Farm went away but happy about how they morphed into The Mountain Says No.

17.) Gazerbeam – The Mountain Says No
18.) Paint It Black – Silver Bridget
19.) Every Last One Of Us – SWALE
20.) The Heart Is King – Pinhead

Pinhead helped open Burlington up to the wide variety of music that exists today. Great song from Swale. I want to send lots of love to Eric Olsen who just lost his mother. Our hearts go out to you Eric!!! Great take on the Stones song by Bridget and great rocker from Mountain. This next band was the first to really turn me on to our local music scene, so many years ago.

21.) Happy New Year – Ninja Custodian
22.) Decide – Dave Jarvis Band
23.) The Original Original – Black Rabbit
24.) Round Sum – Cave Bees

The Bees come out to rock us now and then, and have been doing so for years. Rabbit always put on fun shows. Dave rocked us back in the ’90’s and has a new band called Agent 802. I love Ninja. OK, let’s stay in the past for a bit.

25.) Hold Me Tight – The Decentz
26.) Holly Mae – The Snaz
27.) Bridge To Panda Chaos – Zeus Springsteen
28.) Six Inch Knife – Will
29.) Avalon – Split Tongue Crow

Great song from the Rutland band. They morphed out of Will who played around in the 00’s. I can’t wait to see Zeus again and hear what they are recording. Super cool song from the Snaz and fun rocker from Decentz. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

Tonight’s local music radio show on WBKM 107.1FM can be heard over the air on both sides of the Champlain Valley or streamed from the Facebook page link above. It will run from 9-11pm US Eastern time and will go as follows.

Song before: First We Take Manhattan (live) – Leonard Cohen

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I want thank Higher Ground for sponsoring our station. They’ve got a huge show with Kat Wright releasing her new album By My Side tomorrow. I want to begin tonight with the many reports of bullying and swastika painting and acts of intimidation that have been happening since the election. We need to investigate every incident and call people out on their mean language and horrible actions. It’s time to look at ourselves as a country and encourage our good nature and step past the darker elements in our soul. It’s time to acknowledge that we’ve got problems.

1.) You’ve Got Problems – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band
2.) Bird On The Sea – The New Siberians
3.) Are We Mad? – David Rosane & The Zookeepers
4.) Children Of The Stars – Madaila

We are going to have to remember that we are all in this together and do our part to add positive actions to our community. After all, we all live under the same stars. David Rosane has written some great post election analysis of what’s going on and what can be. He also writes great songs. The Siberians sing about love saving us and we will need to keep that in mind. Great new song from Kat and the band. The story of how that came together is pretty great. OK, here comes the last song from Song For My Double. I’ll be off next week for Thanksgiving and in December I will start a new album to play all the way through, song after song, week after week, until it is done.

5.) No One – Invisible Homes
6.) Shy Spiders – Villanelles
7.) 2000 – The Pants
8.) Hey, That’s No Way To Say Goodbye (live) – Leonard Cohen

A lot of local musicians have been saddened by the death of Leonard. He will be sorely missed but the staggering body of work that he left us can come alive every time someone plays one of his songs or reads one of his poems. There was a beautiful gathering of local artists on Monday at Light Club Lamp Shop and that can happen whenever we want to make it happen again. Kirk Flanagan did a great version of Hey at that show, and he also played one Leon Russel song. Pants were a classic band from Burlington’s ’90’s. Spiders is a modern classic. Great song, and album, from Homes. Here’s another Burlington classic.

9.) You Don’t Like Me, Do Ya – Pinhead
10.) Wally Rides The Ferry – Zoot Wilson
11.) Destiny Waits – Bud & Budd ~ The Kind Buds
12.) New Atlantis – Aaron Flinn

Great song by Aaron. He played a couple of Cohen songs on Monday. Bud Johnson and Budd are so kind and great performers. Zoot used to rock out town in the ’80’s and Pinhead played back then too. Those songs have been around for a while but this next one is brand new.

13.) Waiting – Mr. Doubtfire
14.) The Interrogator (Enhanced) – Milton Busker
15.) Lean In – When Particles Collide
16.) Blue Light Shine – Gabrielle Douglas and the Dwellers

We will all have to shine our loving lights a lot in the next four years. Particles are out and about fighting sexism and rocking our world. Hopefully, Milton’s song will not be as on the mark as it seems like it might be. Great new song from Doubtfire. This next band are at The Monkey House tomorrow. Let’s take a walk around town with Diane Sullivan and Becky.

17.) Yayo – Dirty Blondes
18.) Hold Me Tight – The Decentz
19.) Diamond Days – The Lavas
20.) Undecided – Rocketsled

Rocketsled will get the band back together next January. I loved that one Lavas album. The Decentz played back in the early ’80’s. OK, let’s keep rocking.

21.) Comm To Space – ROUGH FRANCIS
22.) Can’t Feel It – Vetica
23.) That’s When I Reach For My Revolver – Ninja Custodian
24.) Little French Earthquakes – Phil Yates & The Affiliates

Phil was at the Cohen show too. I love that song by him and the band. Ninja played in the late ’80’s and early ’90’s and always rocked the house with that one. I love that Vetica song. Such a classic from Francis. Here’s another classic from the ’90’s.

25.) Poem For Torin (Ethan’s Stoned) – Peg Tassey MUSIC
26.) Great Escape – Jeremy Gilchrist – Singer-Songwriter
27.) My Hero, The Enemy – Gregory Douglass

Great song from Gregory. Jeremy Gilchrist played at the Cohen show and Peg Tassey was there too, but just to listen. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. I’m off next week but will be back to do it again soon.

outro

Songs after:
Arc Of the Curve – Fish
Epic/Pointless Endeavors – John Wesley
Strontium Burning – TILT
Alone – Children in Paradise
Dance Me To The End Of Love (live) – Leonard Cohen
New York My Lovely – Joshua Glass Music

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. It’s a bit of a slow week but tomorrow at noon tickets go on sale for The English Beat, if that is of interest. That show is coming up in September. It was so great to hear and see the dynamic songwriting duo of Sean Toohey and Matt Hutton last week at The Monkey House when they were joined by Julia Austin and Ann Mindell when they played as Envy. Let’s begin tonight with a song from Sean and Matt’s last album.

1.) Gold In California – The Red Telephone
2.) Always Monica/Down At The Duck – Chin Ho
3.) Chester Allen – The World Famous Hanglows.

I love the line about what you throw away, to me, is solid gold. That sums up many of the similarities and differences between us all. Nice London Calling reference too. Great couple of songs from Chin. I love that Telephone song. OK, let’s play the next song on the Giant Places album.

4.) The Words Will Show – Lendway
5.) Bloodboy – Barbacoa
6.) Into The Void – Surf Sabbath (The High Breaks)

The Breaks played as Sabbath last night at Nectar’s. Barbacoa opened for Envy last week and played the instrumental surf version of Bloodboy. Envy played it properly when they opened their set. Nice instrumental from Lendway. OK, let’s play some rock and roll with some words.

7.) Tastes Like Nothing – Zola Turn
8.) The Blackout – The Static Age
9.) Running Away From Home – The Snaz
10.) Blue Light Shines – Gabrielle Douglas and The Dwellers

I’ve always thought that was one of the great songs played in Burlington. The Snaz are coming to town for a show at Radio Bean tomorrow and one at The Monkey House on Saturday. I love that song by Static. When I saw them so many years ago it was the first time I saw Bobby Hackney Jr. play drums. He just played with Barbacoa last week at the Envy show and was totally amazing. Great song by Zola. Many years ago The Cush came to Burlington and enchanted us for a few years. They are just about to begin a European tour so let’s celebrate with some of their wonderful music.

11.) Hollow – The Cush
12.) Roll Me – The Cush
13.) Telepathic Headdress – The Cush
14.) Heavy Psych – The Cush

I hope they have a great tour!! One of the cool things about the Envy show last week was catching up with old friends like this guy.

15.) Decide – David Jarvis
16.) Comin’ Home – The Hippnotix
17.) Two Weeks (’til The End Of The World) – Grand
18.) Shy Spiders – Villanelles

Villanelles were just as great a week ago Wednesday as they were the previous three. That night Grand opened for them and were pretty amazing too. Hipp Notix are from New York and, if I’m not mistaken, are from Dave’s neck of the woods. So, this is the week that the Seven Days Daisy awards came out. Daniel Bolles also awarded some special not quite awards called Dandelions. He rightly awarded Villanelles for best rock band and somehow me for local music champion, though fellow nominees such as Luke Awtry, James Lockridge, and Girls Rock Vermont deserved it as much or more. Thanks Dan and 7 Days. Oh, and this next singer and band rightly swept the local popular Daisy votes in a few categories.

19.) By My Side – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band
20.) Bad Oasis – farm
21.) Star – The New Siberians

That is such a great song. I love that Farm song. OK, this next singer is 17 years old but is on her way to become a star.

22.) The Worst Part – Bethany Conner Music
23.) Bury Me – Forest Gray
24.) Our Lady Of The Underground – Anais Mitchell
25.) Time to Get Out – Aaron Flinn and Salad Days

I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. One of the legendary Burlington musicians from the ’90’s released a new ep this week. She is celebrating with a release party tonight in California. This is the title song.

1.) Cowboy Summer – Alice Austin
2.) Endless War – Jeremy Gilchrist
3.) Snow In The Controls – Dom The Barber
4.) All The Same To You – Milton Busker

Great song from Milton. I’ve been waiting until it was snowy out to play the Dommer Barber song. It isn’t really snowy out, but is in late January. I have played the Jeremy song before but that was a demo and this is the brand new studio version. Great stuff from Alice, as always. This next band played a fantastic version of this song last week at Signal Kitchen.

5.) Golden Crutch – Swale
6.) Son, You Are No Island – Torres
7.) Year Of The Snake – Tyler Daniel Bean
8.) Jack Sharp – Swale

Swale played a rocking version of that one too. Tyler played that song solo acoustic, but it had a lot of fire, and the version I just played is the full band version. Pretty cool song. Island was the song that stood out the most at the Torres show, though I really liked it all. I love the slow build and heavy surge at the end. I though it would be fun to bookend that set with Swale. OK, here is the next song on Red Flannel Hash

9.) Alienation – Black Rabbit
10.) Throw Me Away – Spill
11.) Nowhere Feels Like Home – Fire The Cannons
12.) Las Vegas – Ninja Custodian

Classic rocker from Ninja. FTC rocked us for a few years in the early 2000’s and put on some pretty intense shows. Spill are another great ’90’s band and that song always grabbed me. I just love that Rabbit song!! There is a cool show happening tomorrow at Twofourtwo Main with these next three bands.

13.) Last Song – Carraway
14.) No Way – Phantom Suns
15.) Nothing Important – Doom Service

Doom have a new album called Live At Mount Doom, so I got that one from that album. Great songs from Phantom and Carraway. I really have to make it to 242 Main tomorrow. OK, let’s keep rocking.

16.) Ladders – Heavy Plains
17.) Great Scott – Wave Of The Future
18.) Too Drunk – The Dirty Blondes
19.) Hello World – Screaming Skull
20.) On A Sunday – Screaming Broccoli

Killer song from the late ’80’s early ’90’s band. That Skull song is so cool. It’s a short intro followed by a shorter burst of intense rock. I just heard that the Blondes are playing at the Bowie tribute thing at Higher Ground tonight and I’m bummed I missed them. That is such a fun song from Wave. Great rocker from Plains. OK, let’s keep rocking.

21.) Little French Earthquakes – Phil Yates and the Affiliates
22.) Not True – Peg Tassey
23.) Blue Light Shines – Gabrielle Douglas and The Dwellers
24.) Plastic Revolution

I keep singing that song “Revolution, Bern style now.” Great rocker from Gabby. Great rocker from Peg. Earthquakes had me bouncing around the studio, but of course, the other songs had me doing that too. OK, let’s keep rocking.

25.) Something I Drew – Farm
26.) Gas And Oil – Gas And Oil
27.) Weapons Factory – The Wards with the Dirty Blondes
28.) Purpose and Object – The Contrarian

I love that song from Casey Merlin Rae. Classic from the ’80’s punk band. That was a re-recorded version with a bit of help from Diane Sullivan on vocals. Great song from Beano’s solo band. Hmmm, Farm. I liked the Torres show so much, I want to toss in another song. This is the title song from the new album.

29.) Sprinter – Torres
30.) The Summer Of Andy – The Cancer Conspiracy

I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

I just got back from tonight’s local music radio show on internet only Wbkm Dot Org. I pulled our a few gems from the past and played a couple of songs that are barely a week old.

Songs before:Hopin’ That I’m Wrong – Will
Let Us Go – The Church Band

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It’s a cold night in Burlington but a few intrepid souls are out and about and not letting it get them down. Here is a song I got a couple of days ago, but have been enjoying live for a few months now. This is Burn It Down Bernadette by Phil Yates & The Affiliates on WBKM and this is Burlington’s Kind Of Music.

1.) Burn It Down Bernadette – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
2.) Blue Light Blue – Heavy Plains
3.) Blue Light Shines – Gabrielle Douglas and the Dwellers

I love that song and had to play it out of the Plains song. That’s another new song from Luke Awtry‘s new band. Great song by Phil Yates. I’m so happy to have new songs of theirs. Let’s play the next song on Many Things & Many Scenes. This is one of my favorites.

4.) A Quiet Pun – Joe Adler
5.) Think I’ll Stay – Great Western
6.) This Land Is Your Land – Bernie Sanders and 30 Vermont musicians

Nice reggae feel to the Woody Guthrie classic. I think about the idea of pluralism we strive for in the United States and many other countries. It’s terrible when someone uses violence to try and silence an artistic voice. The response to the killings in Paris have been some incredible works of art that will touch millions of souls. The picture of the pencil with the words “This Machine Kills Fascists”, which is what Woody had written on his guitar, really hit me. The great part about art is it does not kill people, just bad ideas. Senator Sanders wages peace, so that is why I played that song. I love that song from Western!!! Last Saturday I made it out to The Monkey House and saw great sets from Black Rabbit and Dino Bravo VT. The Mountain Says No did a stunning job opening the show, but they don’t have anything recorded yet so I can’t play any of their songs. Instead, I’ll play a song from the soundtrack of Ben Maddoxs underwater adventures.

7.) Straight Outta Kill Kare – I See Fish People
8.) Always Monica/Down At The Duck (live) – Chin Ho!
9.) No Way – Phantom Suns

I’ve really got to get to know Suns better. Great song. Classic couple of songs from the mighty Chin Ho! This next song has been running through my head a lot, so I’ll play it again.

10.) Killing Ghosts – Better Things
11.) I-90 East – ROUGH FRANCIS
12.) Freakin Out – Death World Wide

I’m so psyched about the show at the Flynn with Death, Francis and others. It’s going to rock! Sometimes the news gets too heavy. I mean you need to stay informed, but after a certain amount of understanding the world, sometimes you need a distraction.

13.) Distraction – When Particles Collide
14.) Cats Were Born – And The Kids
15.) Dragged Around The Universe – Queen Tangerine
16.) Bionic – The Red Telephone

Love the lyric in the RT song. I was feeling fired up the other day and had it running through my head. They used to rock Burlington with that one. Great song from Julia Austin and Alice Austin from the days after Zola Turn. Can’t waif for the new Kids album. Great song from Particles. This band seem to play for a while, go quiet for a while then play again. They’re around and this is a cool song.

17.) Parking Lot – Villanelles
18.) All Around – Hover
19.) Let The World Turn – Death.

I hope they play that one when they play the Flynn! Great song from Brad Searles old band. I love this next song, and love the live version just a little bit more.

20.) TFAY (live) – Elephants of Scotland
21.) Ornan’s Song – The Dirty Blondes
22.) 1.21 Jigawats – Wave of the Future

Love that song. Their guitar player plays drums for Mountain Says No and it was cool that most of Wave came to the show to support him. Ornan McLean plays drums for the Blondes and Elephants. OS was dedicated to my brother Ken who loves that song. Earlier today I asked for requests and got four. I’ll have to hold the Red Admiral until I’ve listened more but these next three are dedicated to Marc Scarano, David Jarvis Mark Crowther, and Kitty Kindbud.

23.) Flight Of The Alligator – Cave Bees
24.) Paper Train – Dave Jarvis
25.) You Can’t Always Get What You Want – Bud & Budd ~ The Kind Buds

I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

I just got back from doing my local music radio show on internet only Wbkm Dot Org. I played a lot of Christmas songs and some songs about what Christmas could mean.

Song before: Blue Light Shines – Gabrielle Douglas and the Dwellers

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I’m going to play a bunch of local artists doing Christmas songs but before I get into it, earlier today I was chatting with a musician about songs having value and being worth buying. He had a new single out and offered to give me a copy but I opted to purchase it instead. This is Old Souls Of Chatham County by Jeremy Gilchrist on WBKM, and this is Burlington’s Kind Of Music.

1.) Old Souls Of Chatham County – Jeremy Gilchrist
2.) I donwannago (Surfin) – Super Music Band
3.) Beautiful Bones (live) – Lobot
4.) Christmas Sled – The Mountain Says No

Love that song by Mountain. Can’t wait to see them January 3rd at The Monkey House with Black Rabbit and Dino Bravo VT. Chris Farnsworth plays guitar with Dino and Lobot and just got me a collection of 6 leftover Lobot songs. What a great guitar player. Dino also are playing tonight at Club Metronome. Another new song from Doug McAllister‘s new band. He’s in California now but has deep Vermont roots. Great song from Jeremy, totally worth the $ 1.00 I paid. OK, let’s dive into Christmas songs.

5.) Carol Of The Bells – Gordon Stone Trio
6.) It Came Upon A Midnight Clear – Electric Halo
7.) Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas – Greg Alexander
8.) Merry Christmas Baby – Sandra Wright.

Great version of the song by Sandra, who used to play all the time in town. Beautiful singing by Greg. Beautiful saw by Johnnie Day Durand on the Halo song. Love the banjo work on Bells. This next song is by a great supporter of the local music scene and great local musician.

9.) Santa Baby – Samara Lark Brown
10.) Frosty The Snowman – Construction Joe
11.) Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer – Linda Bassick
12.) The Christmas Song – Motel Brown
13.) Santa Claus Is Coming To Town – Scott Managan

Very elegant version of that song! Motel did a great version of that classic. I really like Linda’s take on Rudolph. That’s a fun instrumental version of Frosty. OK let’s step away from Christmas songs for a while. Last week I finished off the last song on Lipstick And Dynamite. It’s time to start a new album to play one song a week and go through the whole album. This next album features a great guy and a ton of great VT musicians. This is the first song from Many Things & Many Scenes.

14.) The Mime – Joe Adler
15.) Give Me All Your Love – Madaila
16.) Neighborhood – Black Rabbit
17.) Finally Found The One – When Particles Collide

That was not a Christmas song, but the idea of finding the one for you and using that to step forward into life is reminiscent of the love of family that we focus on at Christmas. Congratulations Particles on winning the award for best new band in Boston. That feeling of love can easily extend beyond your direct family to your friends in the neighborhood. Nice song about love by Madaila, and thanks to Mike Luoma for getting me a copy of the song just before i went on air. Seven Days did a nice article on some of the people behind the music scenes in VT, and showcased a lot of wonderful people who make it all happen. I think Mike is one of those, even if he, and hundreds of others, were not directly mentioned. This next song is not a Christmas song but is a song about love, and choosing love and is very much in the spirit.

18.) You Can Love If You Want To – Peg Tassey MUSIC
19.) Silent Night – Tammy Fletcher
20.) Jingle Bell Rock – Sarah Stickle

Great version of the classic by Sarah. Wow, what amazing singing by Tammy! Great song by Peg. Let’s keep the Christmas songs flowing.

21.) Winter Wonderland – Joshua Glass
22.) God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen – Viperhouse
23.) Little Drummer Boy – Aaron Flinn
24.) Merry X-Mas (War Is Over) – Joshua Glass Music

Wow, it’s been so many years since John Lennon wrote that song. You’d have though humanity would have caught up by now. Apparently not, but we can any time we choose. Great song by Aaron! That was a fun acid jazz version by Viper. This next song is not a Christmas song but truly invokes the spirit of peace on earth, good will toward people. They are playing right now at Manhattan Pizza and Pub but I’m on the air. I will have to catch up with them soon.

25.) Sequoia 3 – Binger
26.) It’s Just A Ride – Bill Hicks
27.) Silver Bells – Josh Glass and Jackie Buttolph
28.) White Christmas – Giovanina Bucci

Beautiful version of the classic. Great song by Josh and Jackie. I get the feeling Bill is still hanging at the evolution bell curve waiting for humanity to catch up. Maybe some day. This next song is not a Christmas song, but is seasonally appropriate.

29.) Winter – David L. Jarvis
30.) TFAY – Elephants of Scotland

Check your list, you don’t want to forget about anyone. My brother Ken is having a birthday tomorrow, and I know he likes rocking music, so I’m sending that one out to him. This next song is for my father, your father, everyone’s father and you if you are a father.

31.) The Fathers Of The Year – I See Fish People
32.) Oh Holy Night – Cait Hoffman

Beautiful version of that song. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town, let’s do it again next week, shall we?

I just got back from my local music radio show on internet only Wbkm Dot Org. Despite there being great music out and about, I really wanted to spend the night fully in the studio and into the show. I guess I can’t see it all.

Song before: Starman

intro

From our small city to the great big world these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Sorry that none of my prerecorded breaks played last week. Tonight I’m in the studio for the full two hours. Let’s finish up playing Row, the great EP from Montpelier’s Anachronist. The last two are coming and the first is He’s Still There on WBKM and this is Burlington’s Kind Of Music.

1.) He’s Still There – Anachronist
2.) Clouds – Anachronist
3.) Unveiled – Pours
4.) Never Satisfied – THE VACANT LOTS

The Lots played a killer show at the BCA center last week. Pours did a great job opening, and I loved Unveiled when they played it live. Clouds is pretty appropriate considering the grey rainy days we’ve been having in Vermont. Sometimes you have to realize that your surroundings can influence how you think, but it’s good to know there is a lot more happening. The sky looks grey, but the stars are out behind it. Thanks to Britt Shorter for hooking me up with the Pours album and the ticket to Alpenglow at the Universalist Church last Sunday. It was a gorgeously powerful show and this song really jumped out.

5.) Brothers In Crime – Alpenglow
6.) Star – The New Siberians
7.) You Make Me See Stars – The Lonestar Chain
8.) Hollywood – Lendway

It was good to see Michael Clifford at the Alpenglow show. Matthew Bryan Hagen will be playing with The Dark Side Of The Mountain playing Pink Floyd covers at Nectar’s October 31st and November 1st. Lonestar have a show November 4th. Vote first, then go see them. Binger are playing that night too. Word has it Brendan Devitt has a ton of new Siberians songs coming soon. Here’s a song from another Burlington star, who is in California at the moment. She has a new album coming soon too.

9.) Under Bright Stars – Alice Austin
10.) What’s In California? – Joshua Glass
11.) Gold In California – The Red Telephone

Great new song from RT! Love those guitars!! Great song from Josh! There is a series called live from the fort that some local artists are doing. I just saw a cool one from Maryse Smith where she played 3 songs and had 2 short interviews. It was pretty sweet. She played this one.

12.) 15 Steps – Maryse Smith
13.) Ordinary Day – Milton Busker
14.) Santa Anna – Hana Zara

Hana will play Radio Bean next Sunday, and always puts on a great show. Milton will play next Wednesday at the Bean and is always excellent too. Let’s pick up the pace and rock a bit.

15.) The Mime – Joe Adler
16.) Mississippi River – Gabrielle Douglas and the Dwellers
17.) Wave – Slingshot Dakota

Slingshot are finally coming back to town on November 1st. They are playing 242 Main. Great songs by Gabby and Joe. This next band are playing November 1st at Signal Kitchen, and have a killer new video out!

18.) Popular Crowd – Swale
19.) Neighborhood – Black Rabbit
20.) Ornan’s Song – The Dirty Blondes

The Blondes have an anniversary show coming up at Club Metronome on October 31st. Black Rabbit are likely playing there right now with Dino Bravo VT. I want to be there but I want to be here with you too. Decisions. It was so fun watching Ryan Miller teach Amanda Gustafson this next song when they played the Bean a few weeks back. He’s playing the November 1st show with Swale at SK.

21.) Satellite – Guster
22.) Might As Well Settle – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
23.) The Tranquility Bomb – The Cush

I’m so excited to see them on November 7th at Arts Riot. Phil Yates is playing Radio Bean on November 3rd. This next song contains a bad word, so if you are really sensitive, you may want to hit mute for the next 2 minutes. It’s not meant maliciously but to drive home the anger one feels when one has parked their car and found that it has been towed. This is a classic Burlington song.

24.) Tow Truck – David L. Jarvis
25.) Contact – Phish

I love the symbiotic lyric between those two songs. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?
