I had a great time seeing music a couple of Saturday’s ago at The Monkey House. I met up with Christopher Larrow and Rich Haskell and we arrived close to showtime. We got in and settled and a lovely sound came from the stage.

Jakals are from Boston and played some songs with a nice sweep and feel to them. Everyone enjoyed their sound including Mary Wolcott who had arrived separately. Most of the songs had a pop sound with a jazz or prog or almost metal feel. Katie Solomon had a nice voice that often soared and roared and reminded me of Dio when she really let it out. They played a bunch of songs from their Keep Mother Sane album. I really enjoyed their set until the fourth song, Homesick, which just took me over the top. I was in bliss as they played songs like Devil’s Eyes and closed the set with a rocker called Abel. I’d go see them again anytime.

 

Up next The Nancy Druids took the stage. They opened with the swirling Sky then rocked out December. Ann Mindell gave her new drum set a little extra kick on Halo. By Design was especially enjoyed by a few familiar looking faces in the audience that made me realize who the final band of the night would be. The Druids rocked on with a song about seeing salvation all around then Sean Ripped launched a great solo on Just Another Day. A lovely song about life followed then they shimmered the room with Disappear. A song about not remembering who you are had a cool John Franklin bass line and more over the top drumming. They closed the night with a space between a secret and a lie.

Chris and Rich had taken off but Mary and i were game for checking out the next band. With Anne-Marie Costa on keys and vocals, Jamie Williamson on guitar, vocals and tall wizard hat and Peter Danforth on sax it was almost a Cranial Perch reunion. They were joined by a cool rhythm section and called themselves Late Night Sneaky Uncle. They had a bit of an off kilter Friends, Romans, Countrymen, lend me your Kim Jong Un for a while kind of vibe, and opened with a hymn about current events. They played songs that embraced chaos and songs that embraced beauty and sang about dotards and rockets. They played a folky song with a Sweet Jane vibe. The played a little Show Me The Way, To The Next Third World War that could possibly be still knows as Alabama Song. It had been way too long since I had heard Anne-Marie sing and her voice is more amazing than ever. The set had songs about diving into swimming pools with no water and how things go over and over and out the wrong way. The blend of order and chaos was expertly done and very enjoyable. They closed the 12 song set saying the truth lies somewhere in the middle.

I said a couple of quick goodbyes and Mary and I headed back to the party that was forming at my place.

Song Before: I Don’t Like Mondays – The Boomtown Rats

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It’s been a tough week to be a music fan what with the shootings in Las Vegas by a man who’s mind just broke, then the untimely death of Tom Petty. The only think I can think of to do is to celebrate the people who are out there making art and music and spreading love and joy every day. Let’s begin tonight with a new band that I don’t know a lot about but are engaging the world with their music.

1.) The Mountain Carol – The Mountain Carol
2.) The Crow – Bardela
3.) Homesick – Jakals
4.) Safe To Say – SWALE

It gives me no end of comfort to know that Swale are out there making and playing great songs like that. Jakals are from Boston and came to visit The Monkey House last Saturday and put on a wonderful show. That song really stood out. I caught Bardela at the Monkey House on Tuesday and loved how Arty LaVigne and Cooie DeFrancesco‘s voices blended. The other two guys in the band were pretty good too. Cool song from Carol. OK, let’s head over to Robot Dog Studio for another edition of WBKM live at Robot Dog.

5.) Done Saving Bones – Matt the Gnat and the Gators
6.) A Cut In The Night Sky – Matt the Gnat and the Gators
7.) Frozen Winning Streaks Of A Gambler – Matt the Gnat and the Gators
8.) Paper Doll – Matt the Gnat and the Gators
9.) A Monster’s Holiday – Matt the Gnat and the Gators

I want to thank Ryan Cohen for making us sound great and thank Matthew Bryan Hagen and Caroline Marie for such an amazing performance! Also, thanks to Burlington Beer Company for the tasty libations. Matt just had a birthday so Happy Birthday Matt again. OK, lets move on to the next song on the album I’m playing all the way through, song after song week after week. It is an album that features Matt on guitar.

10.) Children Of The Grave – Surf Sabbath (The High Breaks)
11.) Hurricane Jane – Hayley Jane and the Primates
12.) Lovely Day – gneiss
13.) Come Kiss Me – Near North

North are about to release a beautiful new album called Most Every Night at the Monkey House on Saturday. Gneiss are at Red Square tomorrow evening. The Primates just released their new album We’re Here Now. I love it when they do Hurricane live and am happy to have a copy of the song that I can play. The Breaks are so great, whether they are in their usual mode or the Sabbath mode. OK, these next two bands will play with North on Saturday.

14.) The Invisibles – Black Rabbit
15.) Machu Picchu – The Mountain Says No
16.) The Mime – Joe Adler
17.) Nowhere Feels Like Home – Fire The Cannons

Sometimes it’s easy to feel lost and like there is no home and that song touches on that. Just remember, we all feel that way and can help each other make a home in our vibrant community. Joe is a true treasure and brings us lots of music. That’s such a great song. Cool songs from Mountain and Rabbit and I can’t wait for Saturday. So, a few weeks ago The Tsunamibots made me the director of robot propaganda and I thought I better try and live up to the title.

18.) Robotic Meltdown – The Tsunamibots
19.) Robots Making Love – Pinhead
20.) I Think I’m turning Into A Robot – Wave of the Future
21.) Rise Of The Robots (Reprise) – The Tsunamibots

I hope you enjoyed that fun set by such creative musicians. This next song was recorded at Robot Dog Studio and features Matt Hagen on bass.

22.) Local Lore – Savage Hen
23.) Comm To Space – ROUGH FRANCIS
24.) The Space Between – The Nancy Druids
25.) The Great Forgetter – The New Siberians

Such a fun song from the Siberians. Druids played a great version of that one last week at the Monkey House. Francis are a treasure and that song always rocks. Great rocker from Hen. Well, I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

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

Tonight’s local music radio show will run from 9-11pm US Eastern Time Thursday September 14. It can be streamed from the WBKM Facebook page and will go as follows.

Song before: Fireworks – The Tragically Hip

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. My heart goes out to the people of Florida. Please help out if you can. I want to thank Higher Ground for sponsoring the show. They will bring the giant GPN festival to the waterfront this weekend. Let’s begin tonight with a couple of bands who played at The Monkey House last night.

1.) Taung Child – The Dead Shakers
2.) Echoes On – Cones
3.) Unveiled – Pours
4.) Bidets And Confused – Sad Turtle

Turtle play cool instrumentals with Seinfeld references and are always fun. It was cool to see Chris Shar of Pours at the Landlady show last week but was even cooler to hear him play drums with the Shakers. Cones are from Los Angeles and we are so lucky to live in a town where they can just come and play on a Wednesday night. The Shakers haven’t recorded their full psychedelic sound yet but Child hints at it. More about that in a couple of weeks. OK, it’s time to play the last song on Loose Tooth and I will have to pick a new album to play all the way through, song after song, week after week.

5.) We Tried – Clever Girls
6.) I Like Flowers And I’m Not Afraid To Say It – Peg Tassey MUSIC
7.) Automatic Sweetheart – Hammydown
8.) Day Of The Dead – Hana Zara

Hana just successfully funded her new album with a Kickstarter campaign and I can’t wait to hear it. It was cool to see Abbie Gail from Hammydown play with Caroline Rose at the Madaila on Main show recently. I got to go to Ottawa and see the mosaiculture and to go to Montreal to see the botanical gardens this week so the Peg song jumped to mind. Great song and EP from Clever Girls. I”m sure they will have something new soon since they have lots of songs in their set that are not recorded yet. Last Saturday I saw a few classic bands at Higher Ground and one who have been playing around but I had just not seen. Here is one of their songs.

9.) Co2U Later – The Tsunamibots
10.) Projector – Vetica
11.) Despite The Rain – Starlight Conspiracy
12.) Nowhere Feels Like Home – Fire The Cannons

Cannons played in the early 00’s and rocked us hard. Starlight were a cool ’90’s band. Vetica played some great shows in the 10’s and the Tsunamibots are putting on fantastic shows now. OK, let’s reach even further back into Burlington’s past.

13.) Boom Boom (Out Go The Lights) – The N-Zones
14.) Paint It Black – Silver Bridget
15.) Breathe – Ninja Custodian
16.) Cowgirl In The Sand – Real Old and Insane Donkey

That was a band that Seth Yacovone put together to play some Neil Young songs. Ninja used to play cool covers back in the late ’80’s at Nectar’s and other places. Bridget played last Saturday and are playing the next couple of Saturday’s at Nectar’s. N-Zones played back in the early ’80’s or late ’70’s. Burlington has a lot of great original music but we do like covers too. OK, this next band will make a rare appearance in town at Light Club Lamp Shop tomorrow at 7:30.

17.) Northern Skies – The Lindbergh Baby
18.) Say It – Anachronist
19.) A Company Man – Carraway
20.) Drug Laws – SWALE

I love the way that song continuously rocks. Such a fun song from Carraway. Great songs form Anachronist and Lindbergh. So, last Friday there were a bunch of cool bands who played at the Art Hop but heavy rain wiped out most of the outside shows. This band saw a break in the weather, got set up and began to play as the rain came back. This was the only song of their set and they are such troopers for even playing that one.

21.) The Original Original – Black Rabbit
22.) Good Times – Grand
23.) Shark – Greaseface
24.) Blank Daze – Mr. Doubtfire
25.) Blue Lights – Sink or Swim

Sink will play a show this Saturday. Ask them for the detains since it’s an underground show. Doubtfire and Grand played a great show at Radio Bean Monday night. Grease are playing at the Monkey House on Saturday. OK, let’s keep rocking.

26.) By Design – The Nancy Druids
27.) The Great Forgetter – The New Siberians
28.) Small Town Movie – The Cush
29.) Song About The Ocean – Dino Bravo VT

Those are four of many the great songs to come out of the Burlington scene. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

I had a great time seeing music last Friday at Light Club Lamp Shop and Nectar’s. The timing was perfect so I could catch both shows easily.

I got out of work a little early, had some time to hang out, then took the short walk to the Lamp Shop. I got in and settled and said hi to Molly King and Loren. I got a spot close to the stage and The Nancy Druids Duo took the stage. John was on vacation so Sean switched from electric guitar to acoustic and Ann Mindell took a small edge off the drums and they played their lovely songs in a new format. I fully expected that the songs were so strong that they would hold up fine and was proven correct from the first few notes. They opened with a song about the way things might have been then knocked out Just Another Day. Sign was fun and poppy and it was great to hear December in June. Sky spoke to our universal nature then they took a walk in the park and felt fine. Halo is one of their heavier songs but it translated well into the acoustic setting with Ann not hitting the drums quite as hard but still adding the quick fills. Disappear is a gorgeous song and sounded great and By Design was fun too. They played a new song about seeing salvation all around and I, and the mostly full room, was in a happy place. Sean said they never do Envy songs but made an exception with A Thousand Lies. They closed with The Space Between but the audience would not let them go. A cover of Leonard Cohen’s Hey, That’s No Way To Say Goodbye closed the set perfectly.

I headed out quickly then took the walk down to Nectar’s. I said hi to Rebecca Rogers and then Nathan Curtis showed up. The Dirty Blondes hit the stage as a five-piece with Chris Clark on bass, Ornan McLean, and new guy John M Whyte on guitar. They opened fast and hard with Burn and both Becky and Diane Sullivan were in wonderful voice. Crybaby followed then they showed us how to do the Kung Pao. Scorned Woman kept the rock at a furious pace then they eased up a little for Oh Dirty Blondes. Hallelujah kept our spirits up then they ramped back up with Slut. They kept things dirty for Jacking Off then told the tale of being Too Drunk To Vote. They stayed with the theme for Drunk then told us why Ornan will always be the drummer for the Dirty Blondes. Yayo took us on a walk around town then they closed with That New Guy Is Not James Bond. They sounded great for the whole set and having John in the band sounded wonderful.

Up next, Swillbillie rocked out a bunch of songs about whiskey, chickens, and the devil. They have a punkabilly sound and play fast and loud. The guitar/vox, bass, drums trio opened with their Manifesto then sang a song about roosters. Recurring themes of the devil and roosters filled the set. Songs like Sin Is Funner and Whiskey High were just great. They closed the 15 song set with Hell Chicken and the mostly full room was in a happy place.

Dino Bravo VT closed the night with a killer rock set. Drummer Jeff LaBossiere was missing so David Evan sat in. David plays with Chris Farnsworth and Josh Shedaker in Zeus Springsteen so it was almost a mix of the two bands. Singer/guitar player Matthew Stephen Perry lead the band through Past The Mark then they pulled out a cover of Remedy. Two Car Garage and Pop Music brought us back to familiar Dino territory then they pulled out a cover of 20th Century Boy. Crime Scene was bit more mellow but really cool, then Wee’s Birthday Boy sounded great as always. They played a Zeus song next with David singing it then they let it slip into Time/Breathe reprise. It’s always great when a singer plays drums too. Strawberry Blonde and Chuck Berry were Dino songs that rocked hard then they ended the night with a couple of covers. TV On The Radio’s Wolf Like Me rocked hard and they closed with Creep from Stone Temple Pilots. They were done but the audience was not. They came back for a towering Comfortably Numb that let Chris shine on guitar.

I headed out pretty quickly after the show. It was such a great night of music.

Tonight’s local music radio show on WBKM 107.1FM Thursday June 22nd will run from 9-11pm US Eastern time and will go as follows:

Song before: You’ve Got Time – Regina Spektor

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Phish became so huge that a lot of people think of Burlington as a host to many jam bands, which we certainly have plenty, but we also have lots of diverse artists and some even think your song is too long.

1.) Your Song’s Too Long – Mr. Ray Fork
2.) Tell Me No – Clever Girls
3.) Fast – Chin Ho
4.) Terrarium – Vedora

I miss Vedora. What a beautiful song. Chin put a ton of music into our community in the 90’s. Nice rocker from the Girls. Ray Fork, you’ve just got to love him. OK, here is the next song on Camera.

5.) Dead End Street – 1881
6.) Small Town Movie – The Cush
7.) Bloodboy – Barbacoa
8.) Off To Be On – Near North

Cool song by the Vermont band. I should really try and catch up with them soon. Classic cover of the Envy song by Barbacoa. Bill Mullins and Kirk Flanagan from the band will play at Foam Brewers tomorrow as the Idles. Classic song from the Cush. Great song from 1881. This next set of music has a universal theme. It begins with not being able to get by, even though you are in the show.

9.) Soul Piggy Bank – SWALE
10.) I Got A Job – Maryse Smith
11.) Paycheck – Slingshot Dakota
12.) I Need A Raise – Cave Bees
13.) Rejected – Black Rabbit
14.) I Quit – Blotto

With the setup from the first song, I think you can see the flow of the theme from the song titles. Great songs, each and every one of them. OK, let’s keep rocking.

15.) Lion Tamer – Carraway
16.) Parking Lot – Villanelles
17.) Silence Kills – Secret Heliotropes
18.) Just Another Day – The Nancy Druids

I had to play that one because of the lion tamer reference. Cool songs from Heliotropes, Villanelles and Carraway. This next song is just great.

19.) Haze – gneiss
20.) Bury Me – Forest Gray
21.) Harvest Moon – Silver Bridget
22.) Easy Come – Split Tongue Crow

Great song from the Rutland band. Bridget are so wonderful. I caught up with Forest Gray at Radio Bean last Sunday and he put on a delightful show as always. Gneiss are at Martell’s in Jefforsonville tomorrow. OK, time to keep rocking.

23.) Spit N Fire Blues – Joe Adler & The Rangers Of Danger
24.) Showdown At The Blue Moon Hotel – Jerichovox
25.) Sequoia 3 – Binger

Great rocker by the very thoughtful band that Facebook won’t let me tag. Jerichovox are from Jericho VT and play cool songs. That song by Joe Adler and the band was recorded live at Nectar’s. OK, let’s keep rocking.

26.) Flypaper – Persian Claws
27.) Light’s Of Montreal – Lobot
28.) Strawberry Blonde – Dino Bravo VT
29.) Nowhere Feels Like Home – Fire the Cannons

Cannons only existed for a couple of years but left us with some great songs. Dino will be at The Monkey House on Sunday with some other musicians to raise money for a good cause, so you should Show Up. Lobot were so much fun, and so were the Claws. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?
