From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Let’s begin tonight with a song about about holding the hands of your loved ones.

2.) Ghosts – Troy Millette Music
3.) Faded Movie Reel – Jeremy Gilchrist – Singer-Songwriter
4.) The Way It Is – Maryse Smith

Maryse will be back in town next week for Waking Windows. Hopefully, I’ll get to catch her set. Great song from Jeremy. That was recorded last year at Robot Dog Studio. Hauntingly beautiful songs by Troy and Hana. OK, here is the next song on Engine, the album I’m playing all the way through, song after song, week after week.

5.) Crutch – Kelly Ravin Music
6.) Golden Crutch – SWALE
7.) Borderline Pt 2 (live) – J Bengoy
8.) Last Night – Carraway

Carraway will be at The Monkey House on Monday, and I will have a fun announcement about them next week. Cool song from Bengoy’s new album Dogwood Winter. I just had to play the Swale song out of the Kelly song. OK, this next band will play with Carraway on Monday. It’s a song about dark and stormy nights.

9.) Miner Forty-Niner – Doom Service
10.) Prime – Black Rabbit
11.) Once More With Apathy – Mr. Doubtfire
12.) What’s Inside A Thing? – Zeus Springsteen

That’s such a fun song from Zeus. Apathy was recorded at Robot Dog too. Prime is a new song from Rabbit and has been stuck in my head for the past week. Great rocker from Doom. On Saturday at the Monkey House there will be an early show fundraiser fort Matthew Thorsen. He’s great friends with the Blondes and the two bands after will play the show.

13.) Burn – Dirty Blondes
14.) Song About The Ocean – Dino Bravo VT
15.) Gorilla Monsoon – Barbacoa
16.) Freeway – David Rosane & The Zookeepers

Last Saturday we held the memorial service for my mother. The church choir did a lovely version of Down To The River To Pray. Later in the afternoon my brother Ken and I took a trip to Waterbury and saw the Zookeepers. They played a cool acoustic version of Freeway. Thanks for being there for us! Barbacoa and Dino will be there for Matt on Saturday. The Blondes are always here for us all. OK, this next band will rock in Jericho tomorrow.

17.) Haze – gneiss
18.) Strings – Binger

21.) Tiny House – Tom Pearo
22.) The Mists – Aram Bedrosian
23.) Fantasma – Mal Maïz
24.) Practicing – Steady Betty

Betty are so cool. The Maiz song was recorded earlier this year at Robot Dog. I had to play the Aram song since it’s been so rainy lately. Nice place to space with Tom. This next singer wrote Practicing.

25.) Tell Me – Linda Bassick
26.) Country comes To Town – Bardela
27.) Poem For Torin/Ethan Is Stoned – Peg Tassey MUSIC

It’s been so warm that I’ve been driving around with the windows down and it makes me think of Lendway. Classic song from Peg. Lovely song from Bardella and nice rocker from Linda. Well, I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we? Ta ta. See Ya.

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.
