Danny LeFrancois

I had a great time seeing music Saturday at Radio Bean and Light Club Lamp Shop. Every year, at this time, The Bean throws a birthday party and celebrates with music all day and night. This year they turned 18 and had 102 scheduled acts. I got going nice and early and arrived a little after 8am. I chatted with Molly King and Loren for a bit then Danny LeFrancois took the stage. Apparently, his band The Parts slept in, so he played the show solo. He began playing acoustic guitar and built a loop. He added a bit of voice and let it go as he moved back to the drum kit and rocked for a bit. He returned to guitar and vocals for a cover of a Petty song that was subtle and cool. He played a couple of sweet original songs that made me smile, then said thank you good morning.

The Steph Pappas Experience

Up next Loren grabbed his bass and headed to the stage. He was joined by Ted Looby on guitar and the mighty The Steph Pappas Experience began to rock. Steph has a strong voice and is a great guitar player too. Several audience members joined in on percussion as she sang about cowyboys and waterboys. She wrapped the three song set with one about going out on the highway. She’s so cool.

Seth Eames and Miriam Bernardo

I hopped into the car and drove to work. I put in a 9-5:30 shift then zipped home. I dropped the car and took the lovely walk downtown. I wasn’t sure where they were on the schedule and did not recognize who was a the Lamp shop, so I slid into the Bean and caught a couple of songs by Miriam Bernardo and Seth Eames. He had a nice voice and played acoustic guitar. Miriam has an incredibly soulful voice and it’s always a treat to hear her sing. They sang a duet on a song about going away to the promised land then she regaled us with a song about how surely you were meant to be mine. It was wonderful.

Joe Adler and friends

I stayed at the Bean as Joe Adler and his huge band scrunched themselves onto the stage. Joe’s deep voice lead the way as they rocked out a song about going down the road. They followed with Tom Waits’ Bella Ciao then let it slowly slip into Come Together. The audience had fun singing along. It was a great set.

 

IMG_1259

Caroline O’Connor and Adam Frehm

I peeked into the Lamp shop and someone was setting up so I hustled back to the Bean and soon it was time for Caroline Marie to take the stage. She played keys and laid her sultry voice on us as Adam Frehm added some sweet electric guitar. Her long flowy gentle smokey rock sounded great. The first song had a nice trance vibe as did her second, Disco Shaman, through that was a little more uptempo. Both sounded great and I was in a happy place for every moment.

 

IMG_1263

Navah Stein

I stayed at the Bean as the next act, Navah Stein, set up a table on stage. A couple sat at the table and poured spagettin out of a pot onto the plates and grated some Parmesan on top then began to eat. I wasn’t sure where they were going with it and took a chance and headed over to the Lamp shop.

 

IMG_1270

I timed it perfectly as Ryan Ober and The Romans began to play. They oozed talent and played a couple of really cool rock songs. They played an older cover that I did not know from 1951, and had the crowd rocking. Bob Wagner sat in on the last song and it sounded like an old blues rock song. Towards the end Ryan and Bob had twin ripping guitar leads going and it was a wonder to behold.

 

IMG_1275

Brett Hughes and the Honky Tonk band

I popped back to the Bean and Brett Hughes and the Honky Tonk band were on. They played a song about a lawyer then a sweet one about hearing a whistle blowing last night. The last song had a ’50’s noir surf rock feel as they sang I’m coming home. Lowell Thompson ripped out a sweet lead that kept me smiling.

 

IMG_1276

Francesca Blanchard

I popped back to the Lamp Shop and Francesca Blanchard was about to start. She sang a song about an ex-girlfriend that was pretty amusing. She played a delightful new song about how the world is turning slightly off kilter. She closed with a gorgeous cover of Dylan’s Make You Feel My Love. I love her music so much.

 

IMG_1286

Ivamae

I meant to head back to the Bean to catch Kim Jordan but they said it was at capacity so I ducked back into the Lamp Shop. Ivamae got up to play and the room became pin drop silent, as usual. With a strong voice and a quiet electric guitar she emits a ton or power and melted me from the first note. Her second song was a cool one called Honey Bee and she wrapped up the enchanting set with one that ended tell me what you might be.

 

IMG_1287

Swale

It was getting close to a crucial time so I ducked back to the Bean and was able to get in. I got settled as SWALE took the stage. They opened with Eric Olsen singing a powerhouse version of Eighteen. I love that Alice Cooper song and they did a great version of it. Up next was a brand new song called Shrug It Out that was cool. I think it was about how we can see everyone you’ve ever been. They closed with a cover that I did not know but loved. It was a dark heavy rocker and Amanda Gustafson let loose her powerhouse voice. It was an amazing set.

 

IMG_1288

Swale

I think Brett and Kat were going on in the Lamp Shop but it looked crowded so I stayed at the Bean to catch Yes Darling. They were a duo with Ryan Montbleau singing and playing guitar and Haley Jane unleashing her powerful voice on us. They had a whole act of a bickering couple that was quite amusing. They played songs about kissing your lips then punching you in the face and how you would be cool if you reached your potential. It’s hard to describe how good it was, but everyone in the room had a smile.

 

IMG_1296

Yes Darling

I hung out at the Bean as Anal Knievel took the stage. You can guess what he began talking about.

IMG_1302

Paper Castles

I ducked over to the Lamp Shop as Paper Castles began to play. Their relaxed off kilter flowing pop music was a beautiful place get lost in. The music was airy and joyous and I loved going with the flow. They ended the three song set with one about how I’m all right and kept me smiling.

 

IMG_1304

Paper Castles

I headed back to the Bean and Osage Orange were on and playing a song about a medicine girl. They had a cool low fi indie sound that kept me in a happy place. They did a nice version of Buddy Holly’s Everyday then closed with a song about seeing my ghost in the darkness. They are so cool.

 

IMG_1310

I had been bopping between the Bean and the Light Club Lamp Shop, but at this point, I just settled into the Bean for the rest of the night.

Up next, the mighty Miku Daza took the stage. Their sax player was missing but the power trio charged ahead at full rock throttle. They sang about not needing you and how you don’t make it easy so I’m gonna make it hard. They played a powerhouse version of Flaca Daza, and late in the song Sugar the clown made an appearance. She stood on the bar at the back and dove into the arms of the audience. She was carried to the front then danced madly on and off the stage. The band let Flaca transition into Panic and we danced hard. Before the last song the band removed their shirts. Don’t worry, Miku had a bra and the guys had tape over their nipples so no one had to be shocked. The band ripped up a killer version of the song about the tree I’m climbing and called it a night. Wow.

 

IMG_1332

Miku Daza

Up next, Jeremy Rayburn got up to speak. He was very glad that the eighteen year old Radio Bean would not be drafted, and said other nice things about the wonderful place.

 

IMG_1341

Jeremy Rayburn

As he spoke, the band set up behind him. When ready, Cave Bees hit us hard and heavy with Juliet. They followed with another cool new song called Happy Man. It had a ripping bass line and Creston let loose a killer lead guitar break. They followed with another brand new one called Future Now that was really good too. They kept the pace at full speed for Golden Goose and closed the set by rocking the Queen City tonight. It’s always a great time when they play.

 

IMG_1345

Cave Bees

Dre followed with a story about meeting someone at the Bean and going on an adventure. It was fun, and she used it to describe how many people have met at the Bean and gone on to create wonderful stories. She did a nice job capturing the magical community that inhabits the Bean.

 

IMG_1349

Dre

As she left the stage Nico Suave and the Bodacious Supreme began to play. They opened hard and heavy with Over The Hills And Far Away. Nicole’s powerhouse voiced filled the room. They stayed with Zeppelin for the whole set and ripped up Heartbreaker. I thought they might let it go into Living Loving Maid but they took a turn and dropped it into Communication Breakdown. It was glorious.

 

IMG_1361

Nico Suave and the Bodacious Supreme

On the side of the stage Matt Matthew Bryan Hagen MC rapped out a couple of amusing songs. I missed the details of the first one, as I got another drink, but was locked in for the second as he spilled the beans. Such an appropriate song.

 

IMG_1365

Matt Hagen MC

A trio who identified as robots and binary followed. The Tsunamibots taught us to surf and rocked us hard. They sang of the surfing craze in the robotic age and murder robots on holiday. They wrapped the set with a song about a young robot trying to catch its first wave, then sang CO2 You Later. I love them so much.

 

IMG_1371

The Tsunamibots

Up next, The Eames Brothers Band band took the stage and turned the night a little bluesy. The first one had slow smokey sound and was about missing you in the night. They took us back to the days of old and locked into a long cool relaxed blues jam. They sang a song about how it’s been a long time coming up to this day, then closed with a fun funky song. They are immensely talented.

 

IMG_1384

The Eames Brothers Band

The stage emptied then filled with Kat Wright and her amazing band. It was late at this point and I was tired but basked in the gorgeous glowing music that they treated us to. Kat’s voice was right on and the band were super tight, even if the horn players had to be on the other side of the sound desk. Bob Wagnerr played a sweet lead on guitar during the second song and the whole room swayed for their entire set. They closed with a super cool version of The River. I don’t see them nearly as often as I would like, so I’m really glad I stuck around.

 

IMG_1385

Kat Wright

Lee Anderson came up to speak and told a couple of stories about this wonderful place he has created. A cake appeared and we all sang Happy Birthday.

 

IMG_1390

IMG_1396

The Birthday cake

At this point I needed a grand piano to prop up my mortal remains, but I had to hang out. Julia Caesar opened the set with a brand new song about singing, for it’s the thing that they do. They followed with a familiar song about how it was winter when she chose to blur the lines. Megan Wild Rice had a ripping guitar lead break on Nosedive, then they closed with another brand new one. I think it was about Mars changing direction. They are always amazing.

 

IMG_1408

Julia Caesar

I was exhausted but loved the next band too, so I had to stay for one more set. Preece came on as a trio with Jer Coons playing bass. Their blistering fast loud indie rock was full of joy. They opened with Waste Of Time then followed with Girl In My Bed. I missed the names of the last three but rocked hard to all of them. Preece are truly amazing.

There was at least one more band, but I just had nothing left. I ducked out and took the short walk home. The Radio Bean birthday party is a great opportunity to check out music and I’m so glad that I did.

1881 write such great pop songs. Nice jams from Binger and the MC. Ray and Russ are amazing. Here’s a cool recent song.

21.) I’ve Come To Love – Carraway
22.) You Can Love If You Want To – Peg Tassey MUSIC
23.) Curve Ball Dreamer – Zola Turn
24.) Clear Wide Wail.

Three of those songs are quite old and still wonderful. I’m sure the Carraway song will hold up over time too. Here’s a song that features Raph and Jane that was mentioned in the interview.

25.) Beach Song – Mr. Ray Fork
26.) Love In The Afternoon – The Thursday Torys
27.) Vincent S Head – Chin Ho

Classics from Aaron and Chin. I hope to catch up with the Tory’s sometime soon. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

Song before: Two Places At Once – The Church

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. If you’ve listened in at WBKM in the past few days you may have noticed that we shifted our format to be local music, but I’m still going to be in every Thursday to give you my take. Let’s begin with a legendary local performer who has been in Nebraska for the last couple of years, but still comes back and plays for is. Here is a song from her brand new album Where Amanda Is King.

1.) Hartford – Hana Zara
2.) Editor In Chief – Ryan Power
3.) Magenta Man – Rue M.
4.) The Sea Widow – Hana Zara

I’ve given the new album a couple of glancing listens and Widow and Hartford jumped out, but I think the whole album is pretty amazing. Thanks Hana! Classic song from Rue who always put on amazing shows. Cool new song from Ryan’s album They Sell Doomsday which came out in October. OK, let’s play the next song on Black, Blue and White.

5.) Make It Work – The New Siberians
6.) Crutch – Kelly Ravin
7.) Golden Crutch – SWALE
8.) Low Down Mid-December – Eastern Mountain Time

Such a great song about this time of year. That version was recorded at Robot Dog Studio a couple of weeks ago. I’m just getting to know Kelly Ravin’s new album Engine. I thought Crutch would sound good after the Siberians song then had to toss in the Swale song for obvious reasons. OK, here is the title song from Kelly’s album.

9.) Engine – Kelly Ravin
10.) Empress Of Ireland – Thompson Gunner
11.) The Mime – Joe Adler
12.) You Will Fall – Kelly Ravin

Some of Kelly’s songs are more country but Fall is all out rock and roll. Great song from Joe. Empress is pretty epic and was recorded live one night at Nectar’s. OK, let’s keep rocking. This is from an album coming out soon but I got an advance copy so I can play you a few songs.

13.) Signal Loss – Zeus Springsteen
14.) By Design – The Nancy Druids
15.) Above The Frequency – Invisible Homes
16.) Everything Will Be Eventual – Zeus Springsteen

That’s another cool new song from Zeus. That’s a classic from Homes. I saw an acoustic version of the Druids last week and it was cool. That’s a full rock as usual version from the Robot Dog session we did earlier this year. OK, this next song was recorded live at Nectar’s a few years back.

17.) I Think I’m Turning Into A Robot – Wave of the Future
18.) Robots Making Love – Pinhead
19.) RobotsImprovingRobots – The Tsunamibots
20.) Joey Is A Robot – Zeus Springsteen

That song is so much fun when they play live and I’m happy I have a copy now so I can share it with you. What can I say, our town just loves robots. OK, let’s keep rocking with another Burlington classic.

21.) Heartbreak Baby – Villanelles
22.) Can’t Feel It – Vetica
23.) From Here – The Red Summer Sun
24.) The Anchor – Carraway

All of those songs were from the past 4-5 years and sound so great. OK, let’s keep rocking.

25.) Full Moon Flowers – Zeus Springsteen
26.) The Mountain Carol – The Mountain Carol
27.) The Last Carol – The Cush
28.) Mary – Plan B

Plan B played around in the 80’s and that is such an epic song about searching for the good life. I want to send that out to my friend Mary Wolcott who just took off to go to France and spend a lot of time at the Louvre. Way to go. Lovely song from The Cush. I caught Mountain at Radio Bean on Monday and they were amazing. More on that soon. Thanks Zeus!! Well, I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

Ta ta, farewell, see you next week nudge nudge wink wink…
