Radio Show 119 Thursday July 16, 2015 9-11PM Eastern US Time WBKM.ORG
Words by Tim Lewis.
I just got back from doing my local music radio show on internet only WBKM.org, and seeing Arc Iris at Light Club Lamp Shop right after. On my show I highlighted some of the music happening in town this week and the big Neil Young show coming up Sunday in Essex. Of course, I highlighted it with local bands doing Neil. As for Arc Iris, they were great this afternoon at Summervale and simply stunning tonight at the Lamp Shop.
Songs before: Canadian Cowboy – Arc Iris Hey Hey, My My – Neil Young and Crazy Horse
From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It’s summertime and there are sunflowers everywhere. Twilight has fallen upon the city and there is music in the air. Kat Wright and the band are playing Battery Park this evening and Arc Iris played at the Intervale festival this afternoon. I caught most of Arc’s set and it was just fantastic. So delicate and precise and majesticly angelic. Some of the subtleties were lost in the audience’s lack of focus, but for those of us who listened, it was magical. Music is like that. It’s so powerful and fulfilling and then just evaporates. Some music only exists when the band is playing it and is never recorded. From then on, it lives only as a memory. This is a song that it could have happened to, but happily the band recorded it and just released it. I’m so happy to be able to play it whenever I want now. This is Sober by Vedora on WBKM and this is Burlington’s Kind of Music.
Seth and the band played a show of all Neil Young songs last year at the WBKM birthday party, and I’m psyched to have a recording of it. A lot of people are excited about Neil coming to town on Sunday. Swale played a killer version of that last Friday at Nectar’s including the killer guitar solo. Hmmm, Vedora. This next band are at The Monkey House tomorrow.
They were great this afternoon and I can’t wait to see them again after this show. I’ll likely miss the beginning of the show, but catch what I can. I could hear a tiny bit of Kat and the band as I walked downtown, and they always sound great. Another killer song from the new Vedora album that was recorded at Signal Kitchen. Eastern Mountain Time are releasing an album tomorrow but I could not find any of their music. Here are the other two bands who are playing with them.
A couple of great songs from Burlington’s illustrious ’90’s. Sean from Eastern opened for Phil Yates when he released his album, so it’s nice the Affiliates are returning the favor. Ok, here comes the next song on JV, the album I’m playing all the way through, song after song, week after week.
Francis played a killer show at Nectar’s with Swale and Plains. I was elated to finally see HP. I loved their first song but Womb is the one I’ve been walking around with in my head. Killer new Rabbit song. OK, let’s play another new Vedora song.
16.) Floating – Vedora 17.) Cowgirl In The Sand – Seth Yacovone Band
Killer version of the Neil classic. This next band are kicking off their summer tour Saturday at Radio Bean.
If you go to the Binger show, be ready to dance, for a long time. Killer song from Vox. They will be at the Monkey House on Wednesday. The Snaz are at Nectar’s on Saturday playing an early show at 7. OK, let’s go back to the ’80’s for a killer Neil Young cover.
22.) Cinnamon Girl – Ninja Custodian 23.) Down By The River->Like A Hurricane – The Seth Yacovone Band.
I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town, let’s do it again next week, shall we?
Songs after: Crucifix Corner – Fish Tonight’s The Night – Neil Young
