Lightning Crashes … Twice

You didn't hear this from me, but a little birdie told me that Ed Kowalczyk, the former lead singer of Live, will play a secret show at 2 p.m. today at Halvorson's on Church Street. Kowalczyk is playing a sold out gig tonight at Higher Ground. And for those of you younger than 25, if you don't know who Live was, picture a grungier, artsier(ish) version of Daughtry. Gawd, I feel old.

Anyhoo, since I'm also feeling a little nostalgic today, here's Live's "I Alone." And yes, I realize given the title of this post, you probably were expecting "Lightning Crashes." But I hate that song. Also, lightning "flashes." Thunder crashes. That's bugged me for years …

BiteTorrent, Now With 25% More Freedom

Due to blowing my entire column this week recounting the Furthur fracas, your regularly scheduled BiteTorrent has been moved to the friendly confines of this here blog. And a day early, to boot! Buckle up.

-------

Small Fourth of July weekend is generally overloaded with live music — and even though there are few things more quintessentially American than Journey cover bands, I'm not just talking about Breakwater before the fireworks. This year is no exception, highlighted by what's quickly becoming a yearly staple: The fourth annual Speaking Volumes July Third Party in the parking lot of the kooky Pine Street shop — which, incidentally, offers a nice vantage point for taking in our annual simulation of bombs bursting in air. This year, the rain-or-shine BBQ (and raffle!) features four up-and-coming, and appropriately eclectic local outfits, including Prana, Brother Through Glass, The Feverbreakers and How to Stay Alive in the Woods. Admission is a $5 suggested donation the Cystic Fibrosis Lifestyle Foundation.

-------

Meanwhile, just a short jaunt south to Bristol, those who prefer their music a smidgen harder — and a lot louder — should check in with the second annual Screaming for Change Festival at The Hub, which gets under way on Saturday. The two-day hardcore hootenanny features a jaw-dropping array of local and regional hardcore and punk bands. Rather than mention a few, and since I'm not restricted by a word count here — and mostly because I just friggin' love hardcore band names — here's the complete breakdown, in order, from headliners to openers:

Saturday: Bane, Unrestrained, Word for Word, Mantra, Our Fight, Sacred Love, Crucial Times, Problems, Born Under A Bad Sign, As We Were

Sunday: My Revenge!, The Effort, Battle!, Dead Icons, Outlast, Under Anchor, No Love Lost, Coughing Fit, Alive and Well, The Control, Crown of Lions

A two-day pass to all the festivities is $30. Single day passes differ depending on which day you go: Saturday is $20, Sunday is $15.

-------

28 Degrees Taurus Should your tastes veer more toward the experimental, I'd suggest the post-fireworks bash at Radio Bean on Saturday. The mind-bending bill includes B-town micro-label Aether Everywhere's the le duo, B-town micro micro-label/brewery Mars Pyramid's VIKOMT and a really cool ambient psych-rock duo from Allston called 28 Degrees Taurus. For that last band, imagine if My Bloody Valentine took a fistful of uppers and got really into Jefferson Airplane and/or Burt Bacharach, and you're sort of in the ballpark. Should be a fun show.

-------

Happy trails to local local soul man Joshua Panda, who embarks on a summer-long busking tour following a pre-fireworks send-off show at The Skinny Pancake on Saturday. Panda will hit the left coast for a spell, busking and playing clubs across the country before returning to celebrate a new album with a big homecoming show at the Lake Champlain Maritime Festival in late August. Safe travels, Josh.

Furthur(no)more

**UPDATED FRIDAY, 4:05 PM**

The hippies are coming! The hippies are com … wait a sec. They're not?

According to their website, Grateful Dead redux Furthur have been forced to cancel their upcoming Concerts on the Green performance scheduled for 7/5 at stately — and now 99% hippie free — Shelburne Museum. Here's the announcement:

July 5th Shelburne Vermont Show CANCELLED
To All Of Our Fans Who’ve Purchased Tickets To Our July 5 Show in Shelburne, VT:

After days of meetings to address and alleviate last minute concerns being expressed by State and Local Authorities, Furthur is very disappointed to learn that today (6.24), the local authorities, citing an inability to deal with an expected influx of ticketless fans, traffic concerns, and other issues, have revoked the approved permits for the show and have decided to cancel Furthur's concert at Vermont's Shelburne Museum on July 5. As the decision was made by the local authorities so close to the event date, regrettably we are unable to find a suitable alternate venue in Vermont. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience!

Full & complete refunds will be available soon via point of purchase.
If you bought tickets online you'll automatically be refunded.

Anyone else sensing something fishy going on here? Stay tuned …

[Ed. note: This item was cross-posted at Solid State.]

-------

[UPDATE: Friday, 3:30 p.m.]

My goodness, what a long, strange trip this has  … ahem.

According to the statement from Furthur, the culprits of our collective mellow harshing are the "local authorities." But here's the thing, the local authorities found out about it the same way we did.

"I came in early this morning, before seven, and our town planner had a copy of the notice that Furthur posted on their website," said Shelburne town manager Paul Bohne in a phone conversation with 7D earlier today. "That was the first I had heard of it."

But surely permitting the concerts must go through the town of Shelburne, right?

"We don't permit them," says Bohne, "We don't have a process for permitting concerts at the museum."

That responsibility actually falls on the state, specifically the Department of Public Safety. And according to an article posted earlier today by Burlington Free Press staff writer Sally Pollack, they didn't cancel the show either.

From the BFP story:

The Department of Public Safety issued a permit for the Furthur concert at Shelburne Museum, but it did not cancel or revoke the permit it issued, according to Major Walt Goodell of the department.

"We did not cancel it," Goodell said. "We would take an interest in any planning if we were invited to the table to discuss additional needs. But we've had no role in canceling the permit."

OK, so if Shelburne didn't do it, and the state didn't do it … who the in the name of Jerry pulled the plug?

Shelburne Museum public relations and marketing director Leslie Wright — who earlier today responded to a 7D inquiry with a firm, "No comment" — informs us that an official statement from the museum is forthcoming shortly.

And the plot thickens …

-------

[UPDATE: Friday 4:05 p.m.]

And here it is, the official statement from the Shelburne Museum:

SHELBURNE MUSEUM STATEMENT ON JULY 5 CONCERT CANCELLATION

June 25, 2010
We regret that the July 5 Furthur concert at Shelburne Museum had to be canceled. We could not host this show without an adequate security plan from the concert’s organizers in place. We did not have that and so made the difficult decision to withdraw as the concert’s venue.

Ready for Bear

Happy Thursday, Solid State.

All week long I had hoped to offer some choice words on Friday's Bear in Heaven show at the Monkey. But betwixt recovering from a weekend of wedding fun (not mine, thank you), banging out this week's issue, cobbling together next week's issue, working on the next edition of our What's Good college guide, keeping tabs on the World Cup and that crazy ass epic Wimbledon match, buying a smart phone (I caved), figuring out how to use said smart phone, surviving an earthquake, getting in some exercise (for me and my half-crazy, half-pitbull Buckley) and catching up on the new season of Top Chef, frankly, I'm pooped. But enough of my problems.

Instead, I offer you the attached video from the Brooklyn band's episode of The Take Away Shows. I would also urge you to pop over to Pitchfork and dig into this remix of BIH's "Ultimate Satisfaction" by The Field that dropped yesterday. It's pretty cool in a hazy, sprawling, druggy kinda way.

Also, I'd be remiss if I didn't rehash this week's column love for the debut of Daniel Munzing's (My Dearest Darling) new electro indie outfit Errands, who will open for BIH. Check 'em out here.

And last but not least, have you seen the Monkey's awesome new website yet?

Speeding Up

This just in from our old pals Waylon Speed: the promo video for the band's appearance at this year's Gathering of the Vibes.

No Music Wednesday

Hey, Burlington. I have a modest proposal for you. Ready?

Can we just all agree not to have really cool shows on Wednesday nights anymore? Maybe have that be the music scene's collective night of rest or something? (Rock 'n' roll sabbath?) Because frankly, Wednesday shows are a huge pain in my ass, logistically speaking.

Obviously, the paper hits newsstands every Wednesday. So the problem is that I never know whether it's better for me to mention a Wednesday show a full week in advance (and hope you, dear reader, either make note or remember it a week later), ORRRR if it's better to hold the mention until the day of the show  — and hope you both pick up the paper that day and flip directly to my column, which I'm sure you all do anyway, right? Ahem.

What's a music editor to do? (Complain about it on a blog, clearly.)

Anyway, I made a quick mention of the killer psych-rock show at Club Metronome tomorrow night featuring The Asteroid #4, The High Dials and the Queen City's own The Vacant Lots in my column last week. But in case you missed it (or forgot), I thought I'd highlight said show again using the magic of the Internet, where there is no such thing as a street date. So to that end, here's a video of Philly's The Asteroid #4 and their song "Here We Go." Enjoy!

Oh Dear, Abbey

According to an article in today's Times Argus, Montpelier alt-venue The Lamb Abbey has been shut down by the city's Building Inspector due to numerous code violations. Here's a snippet from TA staff writer Thatcher Moats' piece outlining the infractions:

"A broken sprinkler system, inadequate exits, no emergency lights, combustible drapery, inadequate exit signs, unlevel surfaces near the exit, inadequate handrails, and a door that opened into the building instead of out were among the code violations [Building Inspector Glenn] Moore found last Friday. There also was no valid Certificate of Occupancy for the building, which regulates how many people can be there."

Thatcher goes on to write that LA co-founder Duffy Gardner is unsure how long it will take to bring the space up to code and that "he and others will have to weigh whether to invest the money it would take to make the place code compliant for concerts and other events."

Translation: uh-oh.

We're awaiting direct word from Gardner himself on the topic. Though a brief email response characterizes the closing as "Just a minor setback." Stay tuned.

Nocturnals Play on Rooftop!

What's crackin', Solid State? I trust you're all enjoying yet another edition of Jazz Fest.

Speaking of which, I caught two pretty killer shows over the weekend. I dig into both shows a little bit in tomorrow's column, but the Parker Shper-led yoUSAy Placate at Radio Bean on Friday with local sax colossus Bryan McNamara sitting in was absolutely scorching. If you've yet to catch them, I'd recommend it if only to witness the sheer awesomeness that is drummer Phil Melanson. Holy hell, that guy is good.

Saturday, I dropped by the alley at American Flatbread for an early evening set by Anna Pardenik and the Holy Smoke-Off, who might just be my current favorite local band. For the uninitiated, the group is kind of a pared down spin-off of the rambling Vermont Joy Parade that made the rounds at Bonnaroo last year. AP&HSO boast a similar vagabond aesthetic and mix vintage jazz tunes with Pardenik's own indie folk(ish) originals. Also, they have a musical saw. (BTW, I'd forgotten how much fun it is to see music at Flatbread. That alley is really cozy. And as a friend pointed out, the stage kinda looks like it belongs in a nativity scene. Nifty.)

Anyway, here's some random stuff for your Tuesday afternoon:

The big news of the day is of course that Grace Potter & the Nocturnals are playing a free show, not on a rooftop, but on the Church Street Marketplace at 5:30 p.m. to celebrate the release of their new self-titled album, which comes out today. Say what you will about GPN — and I have — but giving a free outdoor concert in your hometown is still a pretty swell thing to do for your fans.

*******

Less swell is how Yeasayer's recent free show at Governor's Island in NYC went. Apparently, the unprecedented deluge of hipsters descending upon the ferry to the island evolved into the seventh circle of hell, leaving those who made it stranded on the island, and thousands who didn't stuck on the shore. On the plus side, it led to this hilarious blog post from Village Voice music ed Rob Harvilla, which chronicles the experience via random Twitter posts. 

*******

There hasn't been much written about the eTown Radio Show at the Flynn MainStage tomorrow, which seems odd given that the lineup features Anaïs Mitchell, Allison Moorer and Steve friggin' Earle. In fact, I had a recent email exchange with a pretty savvy local musician who had no idea Earle was even coming to town. In part, I imagine that's because the show's organizers scheduled it smack in the middle of Jazz Fest, making it easy for local press to overlook. Also, I haven't been able to touch the show, press-wise, because my brother, Tyler, is in the house band. Something about conflict of interest. Whatever. I'm pretty sure Ty gets paid the same whether anyone shows up or not. And really, this is all just an opportunity for me to remind you that I interviewed Earle last year. Moving on …   

*******

BTW, if there's time after the eTown show, I plan to stop by Manhattan Pizza to catch The Persian Claws, The Fatal Flaws, and these guys:

Jacuzzi Boys - Smells Dead from John McSwain on Vimeo.

*******

Last but not least, here's a shameless plug for a 7D sponsored event, also on Wednesday: The Cooler at the Firehouse Plaza at 6 p.m. The cocktail party will feature music from Queen City indie band Villanelles, who will have just wrapped up their live recording session as part of Burlington City Arts' Jazz Lab project.

A Guide to Recognizing Toussaint

Last week, I had a great conversation with New Orleans pianist Allen Toussaint, for the cover story of tomorrow's paper. Among other things — discussing the art of songwriting, returning to New Orleans post-Katrina, collaborating with Elvis Costello, etc. — my chat with the legendary songwriter confirmed something I've long suspected: that when I grow up, I want to be an old, black piano player from New Orleans. Dude is just one smooth cat, even at 72.

Anyway, here's an older clip from a British TV show that sort of illustrates what I mean. In it, Toussaint describes how his mentor, Professor Longhair, subtly helped shape the course of N'awlins jazz piano.

Neon Magus is Watching

M_f04f556ffae040dfbc5434c6e9baf933 This just in from our old pal, former 7D intern and current correspondent with The Deli New England, Will Ryan: his band, Neon Magus, is set to release its long awaited debut album Watching the Watcher with a show Saturday night at … um, well, I'm actually not supposed to tell you. Of course, my merely mentioning a show happening at a venue that I'm not allowed to write about should give Burlington readers a pretty good idea of where said secret(ish) show happening. Hopefully the cops aren't as quick on the uptake and/or are too busy hounding "undesirables" on our precious Marketplace. Still, you didn't hear it from me. Nor did you hear that Nuda Veritas, Ghost Weapons and The Le Duo will also perform.

What you can hear from me is a track from the record, which was recorded at Thee Mighty Hotel2Tango in Montreal. The album, released on Burlington imprint Aether Everywhere, was engineered and mixed by Howard Bilerman (Arcade Fire, Godspeed! You Black Emperor) and features guest turns from Thee Silver Mount Zion's Efrim Menuck, The Le Duo's JB Ledoux and experimental auteur Greg Davis, the last of whom mastered the recording.

So without further ado, I give you "Andromeda, Pt 2 (Spirit World Daydream)" by Neon Magus, from their new album, Watching the Watcher

Guy (and Gals) Smiley

Oppressive heat and/or the crazy pollen outburst got you down? Check this clip from sweet Swedish indie-pop outfit A Smile and a Ribbon, yet another band on the bill at this Saturday's Smittens-led global showcase at the Monkey. Stay cool, kids.

Oh, the Irony: Moustache of Insanity

I can't decide if I love this band or loathe them. But you gotta admit, Moustache of Insanity does inspire a sort of geeky curiosity — and a mild desire to grow a moustache. The London-based duo are part of an international indie pop showcase of sorts at The Monkey House this Saturday, curated by our very own lovable tweeny boppers, The Smittens. And yes, I'm running out of "twee" puns.

Anyway, we'll get into the other bands on the bill later this week. But for now, here are Moustache of Insanity, performing their cheeky lo-fi pop nugget, "Cheese and Freckles."

Torched

This just in: Miami-based psych-metal band Torche apparently had some trouble crossing into Canadia for a scheduled gig in Montreal — something about stolen gear and passports. So they'll be making a surprise appearance at the Monkey House tonight with shoegazers The Sight Below and Burlington outfits Painted Manes and Burrows.

Just as a frame of reference for why this is kind of a big deal, this weekend Torche will be at The Electric Factory in Philly for a two-night stand with Coheed and Cambria. So yeah, for the band to swing through the comparatively tiny Monkey House on a random Tuesday is pretty rad.

(Thanks to Michael Nordstrom and his 13 year-old son for the head's up!)

Good Morning (Jacket)

What a pleasure to wake up this morning and find this little bundle of press release joy nestled in my inbox. Higher Ground has just announced that My Morning Jacket will rock Champlain Valley Expo's Midway Lawn on Friday August 20. Tix go on sale this Friday at 11 a.m. The announcement comes on the heels of last month's news that Primus, Gogol Bordello and Heloise & the Savoir Faire will play the Fairgrounds on July 29.

Very quietly, the good folks at HG seem to be trying to curate a legitimate, mid-level outdoor venue on the Midway Lawn. Especially as the Concerts on the Green at Shelburne Museum continues to trend a little older — but then, don't we all? — this is an interesting development. Here's hoping the experiment works!

In the meantime, here's a clip of MMJ front man Jim James performing earlier this month with the Preservation Hall Jazz Band. (And no, it's not representative of an MMJ show at all. It's just cool.)

Thursday Ramblings

A happy Thursday to you, Solid State! Feeling a little scattered today, so bear with me …

Higher Ground delighted aging hipsters (like me) around the region earlier this week by announcing that Broken Social Scene will play the Ballroom on Wednesday September 22. Tickets go on sale Friday at 11 a.m. And if it doesn't sell out by, say 11:03 a.m., I will never give Alex Crothers and Co. a hard about time about booking indie bands ever again.

-------

Speaking of Higher Ground: Li'l Kim. Wednesday, June 02. Really.

-------

I'll probably mention this in my column next week, but it never hurts to give new material a dry run, right? Anyway, earlier this week, I was minding my own business, just compiling some club listings for next week's issue when I stumbled across this listing for Thursday, June 20 Langdon Street Café website.

JP and the Tough Choices

J.P. Harris and The Tough Choices play Country-Goddamned-Music. Period. Sick and tired of the modern Pop-Country filth broadcast shamelessly and persistently across our beautiful countrysides, The Tough Choices set out to right the wrongs done to a music so classically and quintessentially American. As we speak, Hank Williams, Buck Owens, Carl Smith, and countless other champions of Honky Tonk are rolling in their graves, groaning with disgust over the watered-down contemporary excuse that Nashville presents us for Country Music. Save a few Randy Travis gems and Alan Jackson hits, this flim-flam is pathetic, at best.

And then, I noticed this curious addition to the band's press blurb …

FREE BEER IF YOUR NAME IS DAN BOLLES.

JP, you had me "country-goddamned music."

(PS- Not that I'm above boozy bribery, ahem, but I'll actually be on my way to Philadelphia that night. Sorry, boys. Another time, perhaps?)

-------

In the last week or so, I've had three or four separate people — none of whom are not involved with the band or promoting the show, mind you — email about how much they think I would personally like The Barr Brothers. The Slip-offshoot will be at Parima this Saturday. I'm only just digging in this morning, but I'll say this, any band that effectively uses a harp and hammer dulcimer is aces in my book. Here's a clip:


-------

As it turns out, Thom Yorke is fan of Vermont's own Bill McKibben and his website 350.org. Neat-o.

-------

Apparently, my column this week stirred up some grumblings in the local comedy community. Take it away, Wacky Pete …

-------

And last but not least, this week's paper contained an enormous production goof. Long story short, my lead music feature about local hardcore punk band Unrestrained and their upcoming bicycle tour of New England — yes, bicycles — was regrettably omitted from the print edition. Or, at least the first 700-ish words were. Do the band a solid and check out the full story here. And if you really want to help me make it up to them, you could attend their farewell show tonight at 242 Main.

Suck It Up, Buttercup

It's been like pulling teeth to get some blogging done around here lately. Sorry 'bout that. I could make excuses. But really, I just need to suck it up and make with the typing. So here 'goes, in rapid-fire, I'm playin' catch-up fashion.

-------

If you haven't submitted your application to take part in this year's Burlington City Arts JAZZLAB Studio Sessions during Jazz Fest … get on it already. The deadline for submissions is Wednesday, fer crying out loud. And just what the hell is JAZZLAB? Great question.

In official BDJF lingo, "JAZZLAB is an experiment in the effect of community energy and other organically developing factors on the [music] being created." In layman's terms, it's a chance for your band to jam at the Firehouse Center and work with JAZZLAB's engineers-in-residence Ben Collette and Rob O'Dea while people watch.

Sounds pretty cool, right? If you're interested in applying, email [email protected]

-------

Semi-regular 7D music section contributor Matt Bushlow has a new-ish gig working with VPR. His last bit was a nifty little farewell to The Cush. Check it out here.

By the way, I mention this now because I just received a nice email from Gabby Douglas, who says she and Burette are settling in nicely, deep in the heart of Texas.

-------

While perusing the Twitterverse this morning, I stumbled upon an interesting (and welcome) new addition to the local music blogosphere, On Permanant Rotation, written by Burlington web-builder and music nut, Brendan Bush. Today's post concern's this evening's Drunk Up Buttercup show at the Monkey House and includes the attached video from IndieATL.com.


Handling opening duties tonight is the Seth Gallant-led side project The Dirty Watts. In an email sent earlier today, the In Memory of Pluto front man writes that the band is "for fans of bad bar rock," adding "I may be kidding … then again, maybe not." How mysterious! Gallant adds that the band, which also includes members of Cannon Fodder and "a dude that works at City Market," are finishing up a debut EP which should be released … sometime. Rock and roll. And welcome to the fray, Brendan.

-------

Last but not least, and unrelated to music, this blog post by Village Voice editor Tony Ortega is exactly why I work for an alt-weekly newspaper (and hopefully why you read 'em).

Tune in tomorrow when we take a look at a new wine documentary starring Maynard from Tool. Really.

Merry X-Mas from Aqua Teen Hunger Force

I've been meaning to get to this post all week long, but somehow the days (and nights) keep getting away from me. One of those weeks, Solid State. One of those weeks.

Anyway, you may have noticed Aqua Teen Hunger Force Live! on the Higher Ground Ballroom calendar Friday night and thought, "But that's a cartoon! Cartoons aren't real people!"

No, no they aren't. And good of you to recognize that, I might add. However, cartoons are made by real people. In the case of Cartoon Network's ATHF, they're made by Dave Willis and Dana Snyder, who, in addition to writing and creating the series, also voice most of the characters — at least those not played by Neko Case.

So what do they do live? Dunno, really. But according to the press blurb they sent along, you can expect: "Dave and Dana live! Performing music! Reading from scripts! Amazing unseen videos that may never be shown again! But probably will! Clips from upcoming episodes of ATHF and Squidbillies! Giving out free junk!"

Well, OK then.

Dave and Dana are on the last leg of their tour, and reports from around the blogosphere … exist. I haven't actually read any. Like I said, one of those weeks. I did, however, scavenge the cavernous depths YouTube for like three, maybe four minutes just now and unearthed this gem from an ATHF show in New Orleans last month. Call it Christmas in May. Warning: Hilarity ensues.

Roger, Wilco

When I interviewed J.C. Brooks of Chi-town's J.C. Brooks & the Uptown Sound for last week's issue, we chatted about a video the band had recently shot for their killer cover of Wilco's "I Am Trying to Break Your Heart." For those of you not industrious enough to go seek it out for yourself, here's that vid, and a friendly reminder/nudge/kick in the pants that the band will be at the Monkey House tomorrow (Wednesday) night. Enjoy.

Heloise & the Champlain Valley Faire

This just in from the good folks over at Higher Ground, who announced a slew of interesting summer shows this morning. In chronological order, they are:

Wednesday, July 28: The Swell Season at the Flynn MainStage. Oscar-winning folk-pop collaboration between The Frames front man Glen Hansard and Czech pianist Markéta Irglová.

Thursday, July 29: Primus, Gogol Bordello and Heloise & the Savoir Faire at the Champlain Valley Expo's Midway Lawn. Do you really need me to tell you who Primus are? Out of curiosity, I wonder when the last time Burlington ex-pats Heloise Williams and Eugene Hutz were on the same bill? Viperhouse and The Fags had to have played together at some point, right?

And rounding out this summer's Lake Champlain Maritime Festival:

Thursday, August 12: MGMT at Burlington's Waterfront Park. MGMT are the proud owners of the single most divisive album of 2010, Congratulations. You're either for it, or agin' it. There simply is no in between. 

Sunday, August 15: Dark Star Orchestra at Burlington's Waterfront Park. If you didn't know that DSO are a hugely popular Grateful Dead tribute band, you must be new to town. Welcome.

Why I Love The Low Anthem, Reason #356
