I hope your day went well. I started mine by driving to Shelburne this morning to hang out with my brother Ken for a while. He went to work then I headed home. I dropped the car and walked downtown to the Fletcher Free Library and got settled in as Senayit played some gorgeous songs. With a cool drummer and Don Sinclair on lead acoustic guitar, she sang some huge epic raw indie songs and hit her electric guitar hard. Her music was the best part of the show, but seeing the band on the main floor in front of the windows, and watching people walk past the windows potentially asking why a woman was playing electric guitar in a library, was pretty cool too. She sang about your eyes and being out of time. Her songs were sparse and dark and lit up my soul. Can you imagine a thin indie rock version of Procol Harem? If so, you have a hint of what she sounded like. She sang about rising to the occasion when you are chosen and ended the set with a song about being broken down and living on a merry go round. Her songs had a huge feel that made me swoon.

Up next Beard & Glasses filled the room with some dark and moody blues. They played a slow, sultry, long, and lovely song about not being able to stop thinking about you, then got a little jazzy on a song about missing the point. They brought a reggae vibe to a song about how I don’t know where my mind is at and followed with one with a jazzy chorus and a Custard Pie bluesy set of verses. They played a cover about blaming my ADD then rocked out on the one that got away. They closed the super cool set with a song about testing faith at the Pearly Gates. They were just delightful.

Up next, David Rosane & The Zookeepers kicked off their library tour for the summer with a delightful Sugar And Cream. They showed us Hope In The Dark then gave us Stardust For Dessert. They jammed out some punk rock in the library with Ba Doom, then sang about having a drink with your Grandma. Liquid Sunshine was a huge rocker that begged the question is rain liquid sunshine in Vermont. Well, can rain be qualified as a particle and a wave? I think we have our answer. Break A Leg rocked nicely, then Today Is Mine filled my soul with glory. They were going to call it a show but the usual quiet library crowd spoke up and asked for one more. A mellow beautiful This City ended the set.

I chatted with James Lockridge and Bob from Big Heavy World for a bit, then Emma Back began looping violin, drums, vocals and played a song that reminded us of ancient Israel. It was really cool, but I looked up and the clock on the wall when her first song was done, and it said it was time to go. I took the lovely walk home, got into the car and drove to Williston.

I arrived at Robot Dog Studio at 5 and hung out with Blowtorch for a bit. When everything was ready to go, we hit play and they jammed out 8 powerhouse punk songs. With Justin Crowther on drums, Jefferson Rush on bass, Bill Mullins on guitar, and Clark Russel on vocals and effects they played four sets of double songs and we chatted about art in between. You can hear how it turned our by listing to WBKM at 9pm next week.

They were solid pros and we knocked it out quick. I drove home, dropped the car and walked to Light Club Lamp Shop. The Steph Pappas Experience were on and playing as an electric four-piece. They were playing a long cool jam as I got in and settled. They followed with a cool version of energy then jammed out an instrumental. It fell into a song with a wicked blues riff with lyrics something like that’s what the people who love you want to say. They threw in a little Purple Haze at the end and Steph let her voice fly through the club. They rocked out some Piranha Love the gave us goosebumps with Nova Scotia. They jammed out some jazz then played a long lovely Jellyfish. Throughout the show Matt kept it going on drums, Augustus Elgee rocked the bass hard and Ted Looby mixed rhythm and leads to perfection. They jammed out a cool mellow blues song and ended with something about how everything’s going to be OK. Steph is stunning and the band are amazing and I’m so glad I was there.

I hung out for a bit then took the long walk to Radio Bean. I got in and settled as Abby Sherman began to play. I missed the name of her banjo player, but her mandolin player was Ben Slotnick, and both backed up her songs in a lovely way. Her voice was strikingly powerful and filled the room. She sang about watching it burn then played a cover about hanging over the edge. She sang Come With Me then covered a song about a letter on a dusty box. She sang about being in a Wasteland and about Feeling Small. She played Dreamcatcher from her upcoming album and the room was in a happy place. She sang a new one about floating down the river with you and followed with a cool song that my notes failed me on. She played a couple more cool songs and wrapped up her lovely set. I had high hopes that she would be amazing, and was well rewarded by hearing her.

I was pretty exhausted but there was no way I could leave. The set break was short and The Mountain Says No hit the stage with a new song about chasing it all. The end was especially huge and my heart was in a happy place. They continued the set with new songs that made me love them more and more. They sang about how it was too much and about how you know you should. They sang about Murder B’s and how it’s not a problem. All of the songs were new to me and lit up my world. They closed with a couple that they’ve been playing for a while. If You Lie has a great build and Light Bright Lord had super cool versus and a staggering rock chorus. I love them so much.

There was more music to be had, but my poor body was tired. I took the lovely walk home, turned on the computer and began typing. I hope your day went well.

Tonight’s local music radio show on WBKM.ORG will run from 9-11pm Eastern time Thursday March 1. You can stream it from the website or here: WBKM It will go as follows.

Song before: Countdown – Rush

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds of Burlington. Let’s begin tonight with a cool artist who has been playing in a cool band who just released a solo album.

1.) Better Off Alone – Meg Rice
2.) My Fear Of Losing You – Milton Busker
3.) Your Funeral – Zeus Springsteen
4.) 1965 – The New Siberians

That’s the next song on the Siberians great eponymous first album. Zeus played a killer show Monday at Higher Ground. Great song from Milton and it’s nice to see Meg step out. OK, this next band are from Rhode Island and they played Burlington once in the ’90’s and they have still stuck with me.

5.) We’re The Loops – The Mockingbirds
6.) Accidental Graveyard – The Dead Shakers
7.) Safe To Say – SWALE
8.) Mr Reed – Seth Yacovone Band

Seth and the band will be at the Old Post in South Burlington on Saturday. Swale will be at ArtsRiot on Saturday. The Shakers will be at Junktiques Collective on Saturday. If you like all three songs, you will have a tough choice to make. This next band will be at Radio Bean on Sunday, yea.

9.) The Space Between – The Nancy Druids
10.) Right Bright Lord – The Mountain Says No
11.) Waste Of Time – Preece
12.) If You Die – The Wards
13.) Jurassic Bark – Doom Service

That is on the Live From Robot Dog Studio Volume 2 that just came out. I really want to thank Ray Padgett from County Tracks for writing such a nice story about my struggle with my mother’s death last year, and the way that music helped me get through it. That was very nice. The Wards rocked us in the ’80’s and will continue rocking us later this evening. Great songs from Preece and Mountain. Both can be obtained for free on the Live From Robot Dog Studio Volume 2 album. I’m so psyched to see the Druids on Sunday. OK, It’s time to talk about a naughty word that apparently is fine to say in public by a fine moral leader like the President Of The United States. Wow, our decency standards as a nation are just gone now, as proven by the moral tolerance of the President’s speech by his “moral” base.

14.) Bullshit – Blue Button
15.) There’s A Problem – Mr. Doubtfire
16.) Fear The Government – The Wards
17.) Weapon Factory take 4 – The Wards
18.) Bernie Is A Punk – BERN UNIT
19.) Feel The Bern – Violint Wednesday

That song is such a lovely look at life when Bernie was Mayor of Burlington. He would make a decent President. Nice reworking of the Ramones song by the band from California. I though a double shot of Wards would be nice. I don’t think we need to fear the government but we do need to elect decent caring people, which we often do not do for odd reasons. Nice rockers from Doubtfire and Button. OK, here’s a brand new punk song.

20.) A Song About Riding Bikes Adrienne Cooper Smith
21.) Awake To Steak – Black Hairy Tongue
22.) Six O’ Clock – The Wards
23.) Decide – Dave Jarvis Band
24.) Prime – Black Rabbit

Great rocker from Rabbit. That’s not even on one of their albums yet. Classic ’90’s rocker from Dave. Nice punk from the ’80’s with the Wards. BHT straddled that line between the ’80’s and ’90’s. Adrienne is out rocking us today. This next band is doing the same.

25.) This Town – Suburban Samurai
26.) An Obscene Amount Of Debt – Sink or Swim
27.) United States – The Wards
28.) We Need Bigger Knives – As We Were
29.) Bury Me Easy – Real Talk

Cool song from their new album. Were played around in the early 2010’s. American Imperialism was in full force in the ’80’s as the Wards so nicely point out. Sink and Suburban are out and about rocking us hard. This next band is doing the same.

30.) Warmonger – Smokestack Lightning
31.) Gettin’ High – Heavy Plains
32.) Bit O Honey – Happy Spangler
33.) Magic In This Mystery – Robin Gottfried Band

Robin and his band will be at On Tap Bar & Grill on Saturday. Fun song from Spangler. Great rockers from Heavy and Smokestack. Well, I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?
