Swale 016

 

Tonight’s local music radio show on 107.1FM WBKM will run from 9-11pm US Eastern time June 8, 2017 and will go as follows:

Song before: I Will Dare – The Replacements

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It was a rainy week but the last couple of days have been beautiful and sunny and this town is filled to the brim with jazz. Tonight’s show will be a jazz free zone. Let’s begin with a new wispy piece of music from one of the classic bands in town.

1.) Here’s Where You Were – SWALE
2.) She Has Your Name – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
3.) Bulldozer – The Zero Likes
4.) Nightingale – 1881

That is the next song from Lights, Camera, Action and is the first song on the Camera EP. Great song. Zero Likes feature Doug McAllister from Ninja Custodian and Doug just sent me that a couple of days ago. Thanks!! Great song by Phil Yates and the band. Phil is moving on to Chicago soon and will play one more show tomorrow at The Monkey House. I will be thee. Hmmm, Swale. OK, last night I went over to Robot Dog Studio and recorded an interview with live songs from Dino Bravo. I want to thank Ryan Cohen for doing the sound, Jeff Arbor for helping to set up and Tom Wolf for doing video. Here we go.

5.) Sugar Coated Candy Stix – Dino Bravo VT
6.) Strawberry Blonde – Dino Bravo
7.) Crime Scene – Dino Bravo
8.) A Song About The Ocean – Dino Bravo

Thanks for rocking us nice and hard Dino! They mentioned they have an upcoming show with The Dirty Blondes so let’s play one of their songs.

9.) Yayo – Dirty Blondes
10.) Whiskey High – Swillbillie
11.) Too Good – Black Rabbit
12.) Ninjas Vs Zombies (Let’s Keep Our Heads) – Phil Yates

I’m happy for Phil but sad that he won’t be playing around all the time anymore. I’ve enjoyed many shows over the years and have played his music on my radio show since the second one I did in March of 2013. Black Rabbit will play the show with them tomorrow over at the Monkey House. I think Swillbillie will play the upcoming Nectar’s show with Dino and the Blondes. OK, this next band are in town tomorrow night for a show at Jim’s basement.

13.) Two Weeks (‘Til The End Of The World) – Grand
14.) On A Sunday – Screaming Broccoli
15.) Paint It Black – Silver Bridget
16.) Could You Be The One? – Phil Yates & The Affiliates

Another classic from Phil and the band. Great cover of the Stones song by Bridget. Broccoli played back in the late ’80’s in Burlington and were lots of fun. Grand are so much fun. I really like a lot of Phil’s songs but he and the band have played many shows with some really fun bands and I got to know them because of Phil. Here are a couple.

17.) Sparks – The Color Exchange
18.) Jessie – Danny LeFrancois and The Parts
19.) Tropa – YURT
20.) Flicker (Song For Clara) – Phil Yates & The Affiliates

Another great Phil song. Phil and the band played with Yurt at the Monkey House in July of 2016. They played with The Parts at Manhattan Pizza and Pub in January of this year. They played with Color Exchange at Nectar’s in 2015. This next band also played that show.

21.) This Machine – Invisible Homes
22.) Place ov Dead Roads – Casey Merlin Rae
23.) The Light – Kat Wright
24.) Grass is Always Greener – Phil Yates & The Affiliates

That one features Raph Worrick on the keys. Great rocking song from Kat and the band. Their guitar player, Bob Wagner, is joining Seth Yacovone Band tonight at Nectar’s for a band they are calling Water For Gasoline. That’s a brand new song from Casey Merlin Rae, who is living in Washington DC but comes back to play now and then. Great song from Homes. OK, there is not much time left so let’s play a few more songs as we say goodbye to the mighty and wonderful Phil Yates.

25.) Burn Burn Burn – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
26.) Burn It Down, Bernadette – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
27.) Might As Well Settle – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
28.) Little French Earthquakes – Phil Yates & The Affiliates

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

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

11.) Moving Song – Zola Turn

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?

Cricket Blue, Silver Bridget, The Parts, and Phil Yates & The Affiliates at The Monkey House March 19, 2017 Show Up Shows vol 2   Leave a comment

I had a great time seeing music last night at The Monkey House. The show was set to go from 6:30-10 and I had to work until 7. It was a benefit for Planned Parenthood and is part of a series of shows to benefit worthy organizations put on by The Monkey House and Sean Hood.

I got out of work at 7 on the dot and ran over to the Monkey. I assumed I would miss one of the four bands but would be happy to catch what I could. Cricket Blue were on stage and playing as I got settled in and said hi to Jeremy Gilchrist. I wasn’t listening with full attention but still liked the sound of the new song they were playing. I got into focus mode and loved the guitar and vocal interplay on Quiet pt 2. They followed with Ode To Billy Joe and wrapped up the set. I missed a few songs but was happy with what I caught.

The emcee of the night, Annie Russell, got up and plugged Planned Parenthood and encouraged people to vote in the silent auction with poise and humor. I think she began the night with a stand up set, which was what let me catch a couple of Cricket songs.

Up next Silver Bridget took the stage. Matt Saraca rocked the electric guitar while John Townsend formed the rhythms with acoustic guitar and kick drums and Johnnie Day Durand‘s musical saw soared over the top. They opened with Heart Of Gold then brought us to The End Of The World. And I Love Her was sweet then we went out to the Blue Bayou. They capped the set with Nowhere Man and the quiet and appreciative crowd was well pleased.

Annie came up for more announcements then made way for Danny LeFrancois and The Parts. Danny sang and played electric guitar and was joined by Steve Sharon on drums and Jason Pappas on bass. They opened with a heavy rocker that showcased Danny’s deep guitar sound. Driving All Alone was second and rocked hard too. The third song was a rocker about drinking and the fourth was a fast Irish ditty about a liquor store. The mellowed out for It’s A Shame and were joined by a fiddle player. I think his name was Jake. They brought Sean up to sing the next one and a distant memory made me cringe. It proved to be unfounded as Sean sang the heck out of a gorgeous song about Berlin after the wall or Oklahoma at dawn, or something like that. He stayed on stage for a cover of Achy Breaky Heart and that was the one I was worried about. It was fun and the audience liked it, so that was cool. After that, they called it a night.

Annie came back and announced the auction winners then Phil Yates & The Affiliates hit the stage hard and loud. They played a blistering Co-Pilot and kept rocking with My Favorite Bag. They eased up for the gorgeous If Only I Was Lonely then went back to full on rock for my new favorite song Send Him The Bill. They kept rocking with Burn It Down Bernadette and played one of the most intense versions of Little French Earthquakes that I’ve heard. They capped the night with Ninjas Vs Zombies and I was in a happy place.

I headed out pretty quickly and took the long happy bunny chasing walk home

I had a great time seeing music last Friday at Manhattan Pizza and Pub. It was one of those classic shows that featured a band I knew nothing about, other then they had been playing around a bit, and one that I loved.

I took the lovely walk downtown, got in and settled and it was not long until The Parts began to play. I’m pretty sure I’ve seen John Rogone play drums somewhere before, know a little about singer/guitar player Danny LeFrancois, and have seen Jason Pappas play with Eastern Mountain Time. It felt like an opportunity to see them all play together. I’m not quite sure how to describe their sound. The first song sounded not unlike the Knack if they took a foray into jam. Many of the songs had country overtones, although a couple were almost pure country. There was definitely a psychedelic edge running through the guitar on many of the songs. The first couple were pretty cool and the third was a fun quirky instrumental jam. The fourth was almost a grunge song. They rocked a song about having a lover on a sunny day then went a little country for the one about starting to doubt you. They went really country for The Dukes Of Hazzard theme song. Since it was inauguration day, Dan ripped out a super psychedelic Star Spangled Banner that was glorious. They played a song that had a Crazyhearse vibe and a spacey country song with a Wilco vibe. They jammed out the mostly instrumental song that followed and closed their set by bringing up Sean Hood to co-sing Achy Breaky Heart with Dan. I’m not a fan of the song, but their vocal interplay caught everyone in the room. It was remarkable.

During the set break I chatted with Luke Adam and a few others and Dan bought me a beer, and I was in a happy place.

Soon after, Phil Yates & The Affiliates hit the stage and rocked it hard. I missed the name of the opening song, though am sure I should know it. For the second song, and in honor of inauguration day, they played a fun version of Camper Van Beethoven’s Take The Skinheads Bowling. It just seemed so right and sounded so great. Burn Burn Burn followed then they offered Three Cheers. They continued with songs such as I’m Thrilled and the quieter If Only I Was Lonely. Flicker was fun then they picked it up to full throttle with Ninjas Vs Zombies. They played the newish Favorite Bag then rocked super hard on Burn It Down, Bernadette. I missed the name of the next one, something about making it happen, then followed with the magnificent Little French Earthquakes. She Has Your Name had that gorgeous sound and both Co-Pilot and Masterpiece were lovely. They let out their inner Lizzie Borden on I Am A Hatchet. They rocked out The Replacements classic I will Dare then played the newish California Song. Might As Well Settle was another great rocker and I think they closed with The Pogues Tuesday Morning.

I left shortly after the last note, since I had to be at work in the morning and it was 1am. It was a wonderful time and I’m so happy I went out.
