The Vacant Lots [221]

4/18/11: The Vacant Lots are a garage-psych duo that formed in Burlington during the summer of 2008. Three albums later, the band's line-up has changed (drummer Brian MacFadyen was replaced by Frank Zammiello), but their hypnotizing sound remains as they prepare to play at the the prestigious Austin Psych Festival at the end of April.

Eva caught up with The Vacant Lots' frontman and lyrical poet, Jared Artaud, for an interview in the basement of Seven Days (complete with the band's  signature projection of trippy images). Back in late February, she also filmed their performance at Club Metronome in Burlington.

Music: The Vacant Lots, Hypnotized, "Confusion," "Cadillac," & "2009" and According to the Gospel, "Let Me Out"

Vermont Foodbank [220]

4/14/11: Did you know that Vermont is among the top 10 hungriest states in the nation? And that 1 in 7 Vermont households don't have enough to eat?

The Vermont Foodbank plans to distribute 8 millions pounds of food to 280 agencies who will feed 86,000 Vermonters this year. Eva visited their distribution center in Barre to meet some Barre Tech Center culinary arts students who were preparing meals in the Foodbank's community kitchen. Eva also stopped by Project Independence, an adult day health services center, to share a nutritious lunch that was prepared with food provided by the Vermont Foodbank.

The Vermont Foodbank is the beneficiary of the upcoming Vermont Restaurant Week (April 29-May 5) and you can donate $10 by texting “FOODNOW” to “52000” (the contribution will show up on your phone bill) or contribute the money you save on your eating adventures to the virtual food drive on our website.

Music: Kevin MacLeod, "Sunshine A" and "Porch Swing Days"

Syd, The Way We Found It, "Interlude" and "Prelude"
