From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Let’s begin with a singer who is working on her second album.

I had a great time seeing music in our community tonight. I worked a 9-5:30 shift then drove straight to Essex. As I walked up through the parking lot I could hear Troy Millette Music and Bethany Conner Music singing together. I got in and settled and Bethany left the stage and Troy continued his set. He told a story about truckers listening to his music and how the next song was #18 on an overnight long haul country station. Ghosts sounded great as he contemplated what was waiting on the other side after he died. He plugged his upcoming August 17th album release and said he would be opening for Live and Counting Crows the next day. His version of Round Here was unique and poignant. His in-between song banter was top shelf as he played a song called Brothers, which will be the first song on his upcoming album. He asked if we wanted a Beatles song or a mashup. Mashup won and he played a bunch of songs I did not know, but sounded vaguely familiar. I think he said there was some Taylor Swift in there and at he end had us let our inner Whitney Houston out. He closed the night with the first few verses of Freebird then dropped it into Let It Be. He is such a wonderful talent.

Bethany took the stage to a noisy food and drink ordering patio bar and fiercely cut through it with her songs. She played a song about being twisted and one about doing laundry for the first song and wondering if she was ever going to be able to make it through life. Her dad, Greg Conner joined her on the cajon on that one, and several others during the set. She played a heartfelt version of Linger then asked when you’re going to come around, you’re going to come around. Jumper was cool then she played a song from her upcoming EP. Believe in me like I believe in you was just great and had a nicely complex rhythm. Ho Hey was familiar and fun then she played a song about regretting nothing. She sang about colliding and how I love you when you’re singing that song. She reminisced about feeling like she would be anything you wanted her to be, but it had an eye to the future where that is not the ideal. Drops of Jupiter was cool and the Drift Away ending only made it more fun. Wonderwall was fun then she played a sweet old original called Josie. The A Team was fun then she went back to Train for Soul Sister. She played a very gentle version of Landslide then played an original about how she has seen the end and everything will be OK. A new song called Anchor was stunning then she sang about the one that got away. She sang about knowing what lay at the end of summer and not wanting it to end then played a cool song called Perfect. She played a short song from her first ep about sweet dreams and closed the 24 song set with Ex’s And Oh’s. I loved her new songs, her powerhouse voice, and can’t wait for the next album.

I drove home, did a quick turnaround, then took the walk downtown to Bleu Northeast Seafood. Julia Beerworth and Josh Glass were on stage as I got in and settled. They were singing about how everything is about you. What’s In California lit me up hard then they followed with Here Comes The Sun. They played a sweet Julia song about a House On A Hill then closed the set with Dylan’s Oh, Sister. I chatted with Josh for a bit in the break and settled back in as he played a cool new song called Miles Above Me. Julia returned for a song about getting rich and buying our parent’s houses. Dylan’s I Want You was great but their version of One More Cup Of Coffee sent chills down my spine. They played another Julia song about an old Oak Tree, then played Angel From Montgomery. I thought they were kidding about playing some Zeppelin but Tangerine was sweet. It was getting late so I ducked out the door as they played Let It Bleed into Honky Tonk woman. They sounded so nice.

I walked over to Finnegan’s and it was just about time for The Mountain Says No to play. They opened hard and heavy with Restaurant then released the glory of King Grifter. I Know Right rocked hard and Iron And Metal kept the glory factor high. Right Bright Lord was searing and Eggshell rocked hard. They throttled back a tiny amount for 3,000 Incubators then jammed out Ricky The Rider. They took us to incredible heights with Machu Picchu and eased back into searing territory with If You Lie. Gazerbeam started slow and had a nice build and they closed with a blistering version of The Bomb. It was so great to see and hear them.

Savage Hen followed with a set so heavy most metal became instantly jealous. They played songs such as Voodoo Revenge and Alabama Swamp Skin. They sang about seats that were taken and a clever girl. They took us to the edge of the world then spoke of Local Lore. They played a long song about the wolf and a 36 second song called Curtain Call. They hit us hard with one more before calling it a night.

I ducked out quickly and took the lovely walk home. I know I missed a ton of music tonight, but I caught a lot and loved it all.

I had a great time seeing music last Wednesday at Nectar’s. I did lots of errands during the day, like meeting with the lawyer and mom’s tax guy, then had a nice visit with her. I caught a long nap, was up and running around 8, then took the lovely walk downtown.

I only caught a couple of songs by Troy Millette. He played a song called Brothers from an upcoming EP that sounded pretty nice. He said he was learning a new cover for each Wednesday show in March. He played a sweet version of Let It Be and dropped it into Round Here. He has a great stage personality and a pleasant voice. I’ll have to catch a full show soon.

Up next, Matt the Gnat and the Gators took the stage and regaled us with fun creepy stories. Matthew Bryan Hagen was joined by Miss Saxy (Caroline Marie) and Todd Gevry (the hog) on snare. They began the night with a story about an assassin who collects body parts as payment and has The Snake Doctor add them to his gumbo. They sang about how There’s A Loss In Finding Innocence. They sang a song about a paranoid man who thinks the moon is a woman who is out to get him on Lady Moon. They told us a story of a man who stole someones jacket then fell through ice and the jacket buoyantly saved his life. He looked at the name in the jacket and spent much time Looking For Forgetful Louis Brown. They sang about a man who lives on the sidewalk and reaches for your feet as you walk by on Dalton Delaney. They sang about a Monster’s Holiday and the familiar tale of an astronaut about to fall back to Earth on A Cut In The Night Sky. They asked if maybe the Paper Doll is looking to cut you then told the story of a man in prison who survives by getting people addicted to his uncle’s cookies. When the supply runs dry he breaks out to find his uncle who’s name is Jesus. I think the song was called Sweet Jesus. They told us about the Frozen Winning Streak Of A Gambler and closed the night with a ditty about how I Forgot My Baby At The Reunion Dance. Their stark dark sound was enthralling and I was so happy to finally catch a full show.

Miku Daza came up next and blew the doors off the place. They had a gypsy punk ska rock sound and made you want to dance hard. They sang in English and in Spanish. They played a few slower songs but most of the show was super high energy. They exuded joy. I didn’t catch a lot of detail in my notes but I loved every minute of the 16 song set. I definitely need to get to know their music better.

After the set I said a few goodbyes then took the lovely walk home.
