Song before: Stars Die – Porcupine Tree

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I’m struck by the passing of people and the passing of stars that have happened recently. Let’s begin tonight with a cosmic connection that we all share.

1.) New Moon – Clare Byrne: Song and Dance
2.) Solitude – Alpenglow
3.) Resist – Jeremy Gilchrist – Singer-Songwriter
4.) Free – Francesca Blanchard

That’s a cool new song from Francesca and that’s a cool new song from Jeremy. The Alpenglow song has been running though my head lately so I thought I’d share. Great song by Clare. When I saw the first post about #MeToo I had that sinking feeling that almost every woman that I know was going to post one. I think it’s terrible that women have to endure this but I think it’s great that this is all coming to light. We should deal with this openly and move on to the path of just treating every other human being with respect and care. Come on people, I know you can step up. Here is a song about a woman being stalked and attacked and how it feels. I hope it helps us all move away from this behavior.

5.) Elevator – SWALE
6.) Mom Vibes – Thick Business
7.) A Cut In The Night Sky – Matt the Gnat and the Gators
8.) Mother’s OK – Split Tongue Crow

Great song from the Rutland Band. Cool song from Matt that we recorded a couple of weeks ago at Robot Dog Studio. Thick Business are from Boise Idaho and played last night at The Monkey House and they were amazing. Swale opened the show and it was just a great night. OK, this song has been running through my head a lot lately too.

9.) Able To Breathe – Peter Burton
10.) In The Country – Bardela
11.) Creatures – Hayley Jane and the Primates
12.) On My Way – Hover

That’s a classic from Burlington’s 1990’s. Cool new song from the Primates who are an amazing band live. Lovely songs from Bardela and Peter. OK, let’s play the next song on the Surf Sabbath album that I am playing all the way through, song after song, week after week.

13.) Sabbath Bloody Sabbath – Surf Sabbath (The High Breaks)
14.) Inevitability Of Death – The Tragically Hip
15.) Mary’s Line Into This View – Ouzkxqlzn
16..) Oh You, You’re You – Ruckzuck

Last time Ruckzuck were in town I saw them 3 times in two days. They will be at The Monkey House on Sunday around 7 then at Radio Bean at midnight. I’ll see about working out that third show…Great song from Lauren Costello‘s band. Just for the record, I checked and the name of the band is not technically pronounceable. The music is nice and that’s all that matters. A lot of us are feeling the loss of Gordon Downie from The Tragically Hip. He was such a force of life it’s hard to imagine that he is gone. They rocked Burlington, and all of Vermont, for many years. Great song from the Surfers. OK, this band played a great show last Saturday at The Monkey House.

17.) Juliet – Cave Bees
18.) Again The Rain – Pinact
19.) Flypaper – Persian Claws
20.) Double Line – Black Rabbit

It was so cool to see Rabbit play Flypaper recently at the Monkey House. I thought I’d put a Rabbit song after the Claws song to give you a hint of what it sounded like. Pinact are from Scotland and played with the Cave Bees at the Monkey House show lat Saturday. Both bands rocked hard. OK, let’s keep rocking.

21.) Black Blue And White – The New Siberians
22.) King Grifter – The Mountain Says No
23.) At The Hundredth Meridian – The Tragically Hip
24.) Springtime In Vienna – The Tragically Hip

I saw the Hip on a boat cruise and then open for Eric Johnson at Memorial Auditorium. I saw them headline Memorial many times. I’ve seen them in Montreal and Verdun and on at least three mountains in Vermont. I’ve seen them at Higher Ground, both the old one and the new one and thanks for sponsoring us HG. I saw them recently at Shelburne Farms and the Flynn. Every Show was great. Thanks guys!!

25.) New Orleans Is Sinking (live) – The Tragically Hip

Well, I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, which will be the annual Halloween show.

Song before: Train In Vain – The Clash

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. What a crazy week, it’s been like summer and in the ’90’s and suddenly today it’s a chilly fall day. You’ve got to love Vermont. Let’s begin tonight with a band who are about to release a new album called Most Every Night.

1.) Get Loud – Near North
2.) Jesse – The Parts
3.) Favorite Bag – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
4.) Wicked World – Surf Sabbath (The High Breaks)

It’s so cool that the Breaks did the whole album of Sabbath songs in a surf style. I’m playing it all the way through song after song week after week. Cool song from Phil’s upcoming album. Great song from The Parts. Thanks Near North for sending me a copy of your new album on blue vinyl. It sounds great. OK, let’s head over to Robot Dog Studio for another edition of WBKM Live At Robot Dog.

1.) Intro->Accidental Graveyard-> The Dead Shakers
2.) Taung Child -> – The Dead Shakers
3.) Superpowers -> – The Dead Shakers
4.) Medfield – The Dead Shakers

Thanks to Ryan Cohen from Robot Dog for making us all sound so great and thanks Burlington Beer Company for the libations. I especially want to thank The Dead Shakers for taking us on a rocking journey. OK, this next band have been playing around for ages and Mr. Charlie Frazier is a local legend. He has kept Vermont’s desire for the music of The Grateful Dead going for years.

5.) Intros -> – Blues for Breakfast, the band
6.) Scarlet Begonias -> – Blues For Breakfast
7.) Music Never Stopped – Blues For Breakfast

Vermont loves the music of the Dead and Mr. Charlie’s dedication to the blues. So, this weekend it was so hot I’m sure lots of people headed to the beach.

8.) Beach Song – Mr. Ray Fork
9.) Kindergarten – Lendway
10.) Sky – The Nancy Druids
11.) Somewhere Far – The Red Telephone

Great song from Sean Toohey and Matt Hutton. Druids are Sean’s new band and they are playing Saturday at The Monkey House so go check them out. I miss Lendway. All last week was beach weather. It’s getting late in the year and darkness is coming earlier.

12.) Alone In The Night – Andriana Chobot
13.) Hope In The Dark – David Rosane & The Zookeepers
14.) Cheese Whiz Salad – Wren Kitz
15.) Queen City – Cave Bees

I’m psyched that the Bees have that recorded so I can play it for you. Burlington is The Queen City and I rock it as many nights as I can. I caught Wren Kitz and his band at Club Metronome last week and they were stunning. Lauren Costello plays in Wren’s band and in The Dead Shakers. Great songs from Andriana and David. Josh Shedaker plays in The Dead Shakers and in this next band. He just lost his grandmother so we want to send him lots of love.

16.) Strawberry Blonde – Dino Bravo VT
17.) Mr Reed – Seth Yacovone Band
18.) Brothers And Sisters – Joe Adler
19.) Mary – Plan B

That’s a classic from the ’80’s. I love the truth in Joe’s song that we are all brothers and sisters and that we should take care of each other in times of pain and in times of joy. Great rockers from Seth and Dino. We all have a limited amount of time on this world so please spend it well.

20.) Precious Time – The Cush
21.) So They Say – The New Siberians
22.) 45 – Clever Girls
23.) Ships – Anais Mitchell

Song before: Cinema – YES (official)

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds of Burlington. A week and a half ago a gentleman came to town and played a show at Radio Bean on a Sunday night. Let’s begin with one of his songs.

1.) What We Started – ROSEDALE
2.) Echoes On – Cones
3.) Release Your Records – SWALE
4.) Falling – Xiu Xiu

Xiu will play tomorrow at Club Metronome and they sound pretty cool so I may have to check that out. I always know which new Swale song to play by checking and seeing which one has been running through my head all week. I hope that one gets stuck in yours, if you want. I had fun seeing Cones at The Monkey House and really liked that song and wanted to play it again this week. Cool song from Rosedale. OK, last week I finished playing Loose Tooth so it’s time to start a new album to play song after song week after week. This is a side project from The High Breaks called Surf Sabbath.

5.) Symptom Of The Universe – Surf Sabbath.
6.) Freeway – David Rosane & The Zookeepers
7.) Alienation – Black Rabbit
8.) Imaginary – Envy

That’s a classic from Burlington’s ’90’s and still a great song. That’s a new classic from Rabbit. Great rocker from David and the band. Recently, The High Breaks took a few Black Sabbath songs and rearranged them into a surf style then put them out on Bandcamp. I hope you enjoy hearing the album over the next few weeks. OK, let’s head over to Robot Dog Studio for an interview and live music from Cave Bees.

9.) Sister Blue – Cave Bees
10.) Queen City – Cave Bees

14.) Finally Found The One – When Particles Collide
15.) Robots Improving Robots – The Tsunamibots

17.) Local Lore – Savage Hen

20.) Purple Sorceress – KiefCatcher

I want to thank Chris Farnsworth for turning me on to Kief and Hella and lots of other bands. I’ll have to watch and see if I can catch them live sometime. There is so much music about that it always helps when people in the know clue each other in. Cool song from Ryan Cohen and company. Great rocker from Savage. OK, let’s keep rocking.

21.) Tenderness – The New Siberians
22.) Iron And Metal – The Mountain Says No
23.) Bulletproof Vest – Zola Turn
24.) Not True – Peg Tassey MUSIC

Dino Bravo, The Ramparts, and Black Rabbit at the South End Art Hop and The High Breaks at ArtsRiot September 8, 2017   Leave a comment

Dino Bravo pic by Tim Lewis

I had a great time seeing music last Friday at Art Hop though it could have been a lot better if Mother Nature had cooperated a bit more, or if an indoor backup had been set up. I took the long lovely walk downtown but the weather looked iffy so I brought the umbrella along. I made it through the growing crowd, past all of the food trucks and packed galleries, and found the alley way out back where the Green Door stage was set. The rain had passed and the sky was blue when Dino Bravo VT took the stage. They played heavy loud rock music and opened with Sugar Coated Candy Stix. They brought out the harmony guitars for Strawberry Blonde and rocked Pop Music hard. A cover of 20th Century Boy got the crowd engaged and they closed with Past The Mark.

During the set break I got a chance to see Dino’s rehearsal space and was amazed at how small it was. I guess it does not take much room to launch a great band.

The Rampats pic by Tim Lewis

I heard music and headed back out as The Ramparts began their set. They had a mellower sound with an almost jam feel but the songs were more tightly constructed. They opened with a song with a bluesy rock feel about a drop in the bucket. They followed with a bouncy song called Spaceship that was stuck in my head for weeks after seeing them play it last year. I can still hear it now. They played a song with a nice groove that was cool, mellow and slow and was about one more night. They played a new song that was strong and rocking maybe called Night Light. They kept the trajectory heading harder and had a Sabbath vibe while taking the long way home. I was happily impressed by the music and unhappily impressed by the light raindrops with a similar trajectory. They began another new one that was really good but the light rain became a bit more steady and the show was stopped. All the equipment was quickly moved into the nearest gallery.

I wandered through the gallery and let my eyes feast on the brilliant art. I thought I could get a chance to see more galleries and make it back when the rain passed so I unfurled the umbrella and wandered in and out of galleries as I headed toward the back of ArtsRiot. I knew there was music at Speaking Volumes and Big Heavy World and cruised around but both were outside stages that were sadly quiet. The steady rain became a deluge and I found shelter at Green State Gardener and checked out a couple of plants and all the growing supplies. Once the rain eased to a reasonable level I wandered around several galleries and was happy to realize that there is as much art in our town as there is music.

IMG_5804

The rain had almost stopped so I headed back to the Green Door. I chatted with many cool people and it began to look like Black Rabbit were going to play. They quickly got all the equipment set up with only occasional raindrops. They began playing The Original Original and the rain began again. They rocked their way through the song then said thank you goodnight. Everyone rushed to the stage and tore it down again as the rain became steady again. I was bummed that I would not get to see a full Rabbit set or Zeus Springsteen, Eastern Mountain Time, or The Parts.

I headed over to ArtsRiot and waited in the short and slow moving line. I got in and waited to get a drink but it went quickly when the bartender saw me and recognized me from the night before. The High Breaks had played Boardwalk Boogie, Surf Train, and The Big One as I waited then got settled. I moved to the front as they lit into a song dedicated to the downpour called Dark And Stormy Sea. They rocked out Surf Showdown and Sink Or Swim. They dedicated the next one to the 4th anniversary of ArtsRiot and the 25th edition of the South End Art Hop and played a killer surf rock version of Sabbath Bloody Sabbath. Up next was Hot Dog then they played a song about putting on your wet suit before going to bed so you are ready for anything when you wake up. It was called Wet Suit Dream. Matt said that whatever you do we care about you and don’t, then Todd said Wipe Out. They closed the show with that classic rocker that everyone knew.

At that point I headed out and walked around to more galleries and crammed my psyche with art. I did not stay too much later and was elated to experience a small slice of the wonder that is created in our town every day.

Tonight’s local music radio show on WBKM will run from 9-11pm US Eastern time Thursday September 7th. It can be streamed from the Facebook page link above or at WBKM.ORG and will go as follows,

Song before: Immigrant Song – Led Zeppelin

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. There was lots of great music in town last week and a staggering amount this week. Let’s begin with a band who blew me away the one time I saw them. They are in town tonight at ArtsRiot.

1.) The World Is A Loud Place – Landlady
2.) Favorite Bag – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
3.) Jessie – The Parts
4.) Hurricane – Landlady

I saw Landlady at Signal Kitchen once and was amazed. I’m psyched they are back in town tonight. This weekend is Art Hop in the South End. There are lots of bands playing and there is one amazing show in an alley by the Green Door which is behind ArtsRiot to the right and not far from Howard St. The Parts are one of the many bands playing there. That’s a brand new song from Phil Yates‘ upcoming album. Yea, Landlady. OK, let’s play the next song from Loose Tooth.

5.) Loose Tooth – Clever Girls
6.) Strawberry Blonde – Dino Bravo VT
7.) Nicky Says – Black Rabbit
8.) Bridge To Panda Chaos – Zeus Springsteen

Zeus will be at the Green Door show as will Rabbit and Dino. Great song from Clever. This next band will be at a couple of shows at Art Hop including one at Friends of Jim’s Basement.

9.) 25 Miles Per Hour Blues – Better Things
10.) Voodoo Wave – The High Breaks
11.) America Religious – Caroline Rose
12.) Secret – Madaila

Madaila put on a great show on Saturday when they took over Main St and put up a stage. I caught Caroline’s set at that show and was very impressed. The Breaks are playing Friday at ArtsRiot for the venue’s 4th birthday party with some other bands. This next band are playing Friday by the Green Door too.

13.) Better Than You Think – Eastern Mountain Time
14.) My Heart – Francesca Blanchard
15.) Vermonter – James Kochalka
16.) Cocktail Hour – David L Jarvis

Dave used to play around in the ’90’s and is back in town. He’s working on a new baroque pop band called The New Victorians so it will be cool to see what that sounds like. I think they will play that classic song. Great song from James about what it’s like to be in Vermont and to not be in Vermont. Francesca will be at Hotel Vt this Friday. This next band played the after Madaila show at Nectar’s last Saturday.

17.) All Down Tonight – SWALE
18.) Staring Our The Window – ROUGH FRANCIS
19.) Not In My Name – Dysfunkshun
20.) Burn – Dirty Blondes

The Blondes, and a couple of other bands, will be at the Dysfunkshun reunion show at Higher Ground on Saturday. Francis and Swale put on amazing shows at Nectar’s last Saturday. OK, here’s a classic Burlington rocker.

21.) Bloodboy – Envy
22.) Nightmare On Elm Street – Savage Hen
23.) Mr Reed – Seth Yacovone Band
24.) I Know, Right – The Mountain Says No

I haven’t caught up with Mountain in a while but love it when I do. Great rocker from Seth and the band. It was fun watching Hen put the Nightmare jump rope theme into song form at the Robot Dog Studio session last week. Classic from Envy. OK, there’s not much time left. Let’s end where we began.

25.) The Globe – Landlady
26.) It’ll Be OK – Let’s Whisper
27.) In The Rain – Plan B
28.) Above My Ground – Landlady

I love how hard that song rocks at the end. Classic from B and quite appropriate with all the rain we’ve had lately. Great song from Whisper and another great one from Landlady. Well, I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

Song before: Kill The King – Rainbow

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It’s a beautiful night in town but has been a challenging week for our country. We got to see the forces of fear spread a message of hate. We got to see lovely people stand up to it and we saw a lovely person die and her mother show us what strength and grace are. We have to fight this with love. Let’s begin tonight with a song about love.

1.) Can you Love Me Too? – Bethany Conner Music
2.) Trouble Come No More – Cricket Blue
3.) All We Need – Eastern Mountain Time
4.) Haze – gneiss

Great song by the lovely people in Gneiss. They will be at Red Square next Wednesday. I want to go but have a couple of other things happening that night. Check them out if you are downtown. Eastern are filming a video next Tuesday at The Monkey House at 6:30. I may work through it but love the lyrics in that song. Cricket and Bethany and others are playing at Farnham Ale & Lager VT on Saturday and it sounds like a great day of music. There is a lot of beauty in both of those songs, and we need beauty now more than ever. When confronted with so many emotions and images it can get overwhelming and sometimes a filter is needed.

5.) Great Filter – Jeremy Gilchrist – Singer-Songwriter
6.) Mad Captain – Brother Zag (Mike Luoma)
7.) Are We Mad? – David Rosane & The Zookeepers
8.) This Machine – Invisible Homes

As we have seen this weekend, and may see again this coming weekend, we will need to stand up to hate and fascism. Let’s use machines like guitars to fight the hate. We will have to do this alone since the man in the Oval Office has no intention of standing against hate. David and the band ask us an important question about our ability to elect such a man. Brother Zag wrote that song a long time ago and asking if our President is insane is more relevant than ever. Great song by Jeremy. OK, let’s ease off politics for a bit. It’s important to speak out but it’s important to keep making the world a lovely place. Last week I played the last song from 1881’s Light’s Camera Action “album” so it’s time to start a new one. This is a short one but all the songs are great. It’s called Loose Tooth by a band called Clever Girls and here is the first song.

9.) Tell Me No – Clever Girls
10.) Days Like These – Dysfunkshun
11.) Rock And Roll Is My Weapon – Ninja Custodian
12.) Sequoia 3 – Binger

I love the lyric in that song. We all started from the same root. We have grown in our own beautiful ways but we are all connected at the base. It’s important to remember that. If you want to stand up to hate and use rock and roll as your weapon, you have my blessing. That’s what I’m going to do. Dysfunkshun played back in the ’90’s and were always politically aware and Richard Bailey recently said if you are not political you are not punk. They will get the band back together in a few weeks at Higher Ground and I want to thank HG for sponsoring us here at WBKM. Great song from the Girls. I got to see them 3 times last week. OK, when you hear hate speech, please reject it.

13.) Rejected – Black Rabbit
14.) Full Moon Dark Places – Bull & Prairie
15.) Willow II – Tyler Daniel Bean
16.) Children Of The Grave – Surf Sabbath (The High Breaks)

Great song from the Breaks who will play at Foam Brewers tomorrow night. Tyler is on the road playing shows and will come by the Monkey House soon. He has a video about that song that delves into depression and we as a community don’t do mental health all that well. I want to thank him for helping us understand. I don’t know much about Bull except that they are from central Vermont and really rock. Thanks Ryan Cohen for turning me on to them. Rabbit are so great. These next two bands will be at Nectar’s on Monday with another band for a fun punk show.

17.) Two Weeks (’til The End Of The World) – Grand
18.) There’s A Problem – Mr. Doubtfire
19.) Insanity/Healing Dreams – Peg Tassey MUSIC
20.) Complex Vermont – Self Portrait

Vermont is liberal and conservative. We get really hot and we get really cold. We have people who believe in the alt right and we have people that love people. We are complex. In the midst of the insanity we will need Peg Tassey‘s healing dreams. The Doubtfire song begins with a quote from Trump saying ‘there’s no problem” but there is and he seems to be the only one who doesn’t notice it. Grand are one of the most fun rock bands ever. OK, this next band will be at Nectar’s tomorrow.

21.) Laughing Jim – The Edd
22.) Prog Noir – Stick Men (Official)
23.) Rainy Alley – Totally Submerged
24.) Avalon – Split Tongue Crow

Such a lovely song by the lovely Rutland band. Submerged play everywhere and I really like that song. Stick are a Crimsonesque band who will be at Higher Ground next Wednesday. I love the prog rock of the Edd. OK, let’s keep rocking.

25.) Before The Evening’s Thru – THE VACANT LOTS
26.) Black, Blue & White – The New Siberians
27.) The Road – Anders Parker
28.) Every Last One Of Us – SWALE

If you feel alone and scared there are people like Swale and myself who care and want to help. This world can be beautiful and needs every last one of us in our highest and most loving capacity. Anders was at ArtsRiot on Saturday and I was sick and missed it but am sure it was a great show. Great songs form Siberians and the Lots. Well, I hope you enjoyed checking out the music, and the love, of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

29.) Sayonara – Black Rabbit

Hey guys, Tim here for one more song. It will be a Fish song as always, and tonight’s has a very civic minded intro. Before I get to that I want to go back a few years and play a song that demands to be played after the events of this week.

Songs after:

Nazi Punks Fuck Off – Dead Kennedys
Vigil In A Wilderness Of Mirrors – Fish
Jackbooted Thugs (Have All The Best Drugs) – Anders Parker
Private Public Breakdown – Alice Cooper
Murder – David Gilmour
Fireball – Alice Cooper
Tear It All Away – The Church Band
Rats – Alice Cooper
This Machine Still Kills Fascists – Senders
Holy Water – Alice Cooper

I’ll start a new album to play song after song week after week, nest week. These next two bands will be at the Monkey House on Sunday too.

10.) From Here – The Red Summer Sun
11.) Ex-Files – Better Things
12.) Surf Showdown – The High Breaks
13.) The Territory – Hana Zara

Hana has a new album together called Where Amanda Is King. She just launched a Kickstarter to raise money to get it mastered and printed. She writes such great songs and I’m sure the new album will be terrific. The Breaks played at the Summervale festival in the Intervale earlier today. Great songs from Better and Summer. Here is a cool song that I have not heard in a while.

14.) Think I’ll Stay – Great Western
15.) Breathing In – The Hero Cycle
16.) Somewhere Far – The Red Telephone
17.) The Drone – The Cush

The Cush have played many stunning versions of that song in our town over several years. Great song from Telephone who evolved out of Envy. Hero appeared for a year or so and went away but left us with some great music. I have not seen Western in ages but they put on some great shows in the 2010’s. OK, let’s keep rocking.

18.) Weapons Factory – The Wards
19.) Gas And Oil – Gas And Oil
20.) Alcohol Injection – Lord Silky
21.) The Path – Savage Hen

It’s been a while since I’ve seen the Hen. I may have to go check them out in a couple of weeks. Silky just put out a new album and play stunning rock shows. Gas was Beano Parker’s side project and the Wards were his main band. OK, let’s keep rocking.

22.) An Obscene Amount Of Debt – Sink or Swim
23.) The Wolves Are Coming – Suburban Samurai
24.) We Need Bigger Knives – As We Were
25.) Welcome To The Hellmouth – Doom Service

Doom have been playing some shows but I have not caught up with them in a while. I’ll have to change that sometime. As used to play some great punk for us but I have not seen them around lately. Samurai were in town a couple of weeks ago. Swim just played out west. OK, let’s keep rocking.

26.) Carnage – Black Rabbit
27.) Jackbooted Thugs (Have All The Best Drugs) – Anders Parker
28.) Song About The Ocean – Dino Bravo VT
29.) Freeway – David Rosane & The Zookeepers

Great song form David and the band who are playing all over Vermont right now, and are recording a new album. Great new classic from Dino. Anders will be in Montpelier on Friday and at ArtsRiot on Saturday. Rabbit always rock. Oh, and I had to play Freeway to set up the next two songs. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?
