Radio Show 84 Thursday October 23, 2014 9-11PM Eastern US Time WBKM.ORG
Words by Tim Lewis.
I just got back from my local music radio show on internet only Wbkm Dot Org. Despite there being great music out and about, I really wanted to spend the night fully in the studio and into the show. I guess I can’t see it all.
Song before: Starman
From our small city to the great big world these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Sorry that none of my prerecorded breaks played last week. Tonight I’m in the studio for the full two hours. Let’s finish up playing Row, the great EP from Montpelier’s Anachronist. The last two are coming and the first is He’s Still There on WBKM and this is Burlington’s Kind Of Music.
1.) He’s Still There – Anachronist 2.) Clouds – Anachronist 3.) Unveiled – Pours 4.) Never Satisfied – THE VACANT LOTS
The Lots played a killer show at the BCA center last week. Pours did a great job opening, and I loved Unveiled when they played it live. Clouds is pretty appropriate considering the grey rainy days we’ve been having in Vermont. Sometimes you have to realize that your surroundings can influence how you think, but it’s good to know there is a lot more happening. The sky looks grey, but the stars are out behind it. Thanks to Britt Shorter for hooking me up with the Pours album and the ticket to Alpenglow at the Universalist Church last Sunday. It was a gorgeously powerful show and this song really jumped out.
It was good to see Michael Clifford at the Alpenglow show. Matthew Bryan Hagen will be playing with The Dark Side Of The Mountain playing Pink Floyd covers at Nectar’s October 31st and November 1st. Lonestar have a show November 4th. Vote first, then go see them. Binger are playing that night too. Word has it Brendan Devitt has a ton of new Siberians songs coming soon. Here’s a song from another Burlington star, who is in California at the moment. She has a new album coming soon too.
Great new song from RT! Love those guitars!! Great song from Josh! There is a series called live from the fort that some local artists are doing. I just saw a cool one from Maryse Smith where she played 3 songs and had 2 short interviews. It was pretty sweet. She played this one.
12.) 15 Steps – Maryse Smith 13.) Ordinary Day – Milton Busker 14.) Santa Anna – Hana Zara
Hana will play Radio Bean next Sunday, and always puts on a great show. Milton will play next Wednesday at the Bean and is always excellent too. Let’s pick up the pace and rock a bit.
Slingshot are finally coming back to town on November 1st. They are playing 242 Main. Great songs by Gabby and Joe. This next band are playing November 1st at Signal Kitchen, and have a killer new video out!
The Blondes have an anniversary show coming up at Club Metronome on October 31st. Black Rabbit are likely playing there right now with Dino Bravo VT. I want to be there but I want to be here with you too. Decisions. It was so fun watching Ryan Miller teach Amanda Gustafson this next song when they played the Bean a few weeks back. He’s playing the November 1st show with Swale at SK.
I’m so excited to see them on November 7th at Arts Riot. Phil Yates is playing Radio Bean on November 3rd. This next song contains a bad word, so if you are really sensitive, you may want to hit mute for the next 2 minutes. It’s not meant maliciously but to drive home the anger one feels when one has parked their car and found that it has been towed. This is a classic Burlington song.
I love the symbiotic lyric between those two songs. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?
Song after: View From The Hill – Fish
Here is the Swale video
