Re: “A Paean to the Pants

Great piece! Dave from The Zambonis here. We played many shows at Toast w the amazing Pants. Slept on Tom's floor after gigs. Their music has always been with me. Side note: played a gig tonight in Brooklyn and used my fave crappy amp, my friend asked, is that the amp that was used on The Pants song 2000? Yup. Eat Crow was recorded here in CT with Zamboni / Philistine jr super producer/friend/UVM grad Peter Katis. PANTS FOREVER!

Re: “Soundbites: Scarface in … Barre?

"As usual, there's probably a bunch of bands playing at a bunch of bars in celebration of getting grotesquely drunk and in cartoonish appropriation of cultural traditions. What fun!

Look, I'm not going to write about that shit."

Haha!! Amazing! I feel the same way...That exact scene was happening at Gusto's after the show. I now know why people refer to it as "Dis-Gusto's".

Re: “Soundbites: Scarface in … Barre?

I now see: as pointed out by an amigo: that the above statement was quoting Chris Rock, and not the authors statement. My apologies to Dan Bolles! peace.

Re: “Soundbites: Scarface in … Barre?

Scarface was not 'the first guy to do his rhymes in the first person about robbing people and drug dealing.'
Take a look at Ice-T's "6 'N the Morning" or "9mm" by BDP KRS-One & Scott LaRock. These were in '86 & '87 respectively.

Re: “Soundbites: On Bernie Jam, Caroline Rose & Invisble Homes and the Pants Doc

"Picture the Clancy Brothers at a Sanders rally, and you're in the ballpark." Dan, I couldn't ask for a bigger compliment, I'm a Yuuuge Clancy and Makem fan (I went to Armagh with Tommy Makem & Sons in 2000). I named the song after the chorus, but have been promoting #IrishBernieSong. Cheers!

Re: “Soundbites: On Bernie Jam, Caroline Rose & Invisble Homes and the Pants Doc

Well David Rosane and The Zookeepers do have a Bernie Song and it ain't called Feel the bern it's called civilisation and since i have the wit of stairs i only just wrote it and it wont even git recorded probably until after he's elected president but in the interim we WILL play it at Bernie Jam. Its about Bernie' (and our)'s place and role in space and time in the overall historical arc of human emancipation and flourishing of democracy. And it goes like this.....
seeyou saturday in West Newbury!

Re: “Soundbites: And the Winner Is

Sorry... June 18th, not the 16th... in case anyone wants to check them out I don't want them staring at an empty field.

Re: “Soundbites: And the Winner Is

We were super impressed by the kids from Harwood which is why... a week or two BEFORE they won the spot at Grand Point North... we had already invited them to open for Brett Hughes and the Honky Tonk Boys at our Music on the Green event in Waitsfield on June 16th... We love kids who rock!

Re: “Soundbites: And the Winner Is

Soundbites: And the Winner Is was so well written - thanks Dan. Be sure, the Harwood Assembly Band will not disappoint. After giving the bass player permission to use the intercom, I soon heard the words, "Hey, if you vote and we win, we get to play for people who will come and listen by their own free will." It cracked me up. I'm so proud of our school - the talent, camaraderie, and fire in the belly to simply do it.

Re: “Soundbites: Kyle Gagnon Gets Weird

Hi Egmatic. Thanks for commenting.

While Soundbites is technically a music column, I do consider it an appropriate outlet for comedy coverage as well. Though labeled "Music," a primary focus of the section is what's happening in area nightclubs — you'll notice the listings surrounding the column are labeled "Clubs." More than ever, that includes comedy.

I strongly disagree that comedy in Burlington is a fad. I think the standing-room-only crowd at the GMCF's opening showcase last night (on a Wednesday, no less) would, too. I would urge you to venture out to one of the GMCF shows this weekend — Kyle's in particular. I think you'd be surprised at just how funny these folks are. They're talented artists who work hard and deserve recognition.

Also, I did write a mini-Soundbites for the blog that deals exclusively with music: http://www.sevendaysvt.com/LiveCulture/arc…

Re: “Soundbites: Kyle Gagnon Gets Weird

YO, I like me some WHITESNAKE, but you don't hear me complaining about how Dan Bollles didn't even talk about their new album yet. You want to CHANNEL some of that IMPOTENT RAGE into Triceps of steel? Hit me up for your RAGERCISE needs. Otherwise I say CAN IT, you can't stop this comedy train that's already left the station. People been ROCKIN it with DRUMS and LAUGHIN at People TElling jokes since we was hunter gatherers sitting around the FIRE.

KYLE is gonna slay it like Kerry King at Red Rocks.

Re: “Soundbites: Kyle Gagnon Gets Weird

Comedy is NOT music. This music column should be about music. Comedy should get its own space, or be covered elsewhere. This is the 4th or 5th time the column has been devoted to standup. Those are 4 or 5 weeks there certainly was music news around town that we missed. Standup will not last in Burlington, as evidenced by the small crowds at these gigs. I don't get the sense that live music aficionados cross over into seeing standup regularly -- or ever. Boring -- because, let's face it, most "comics" are not funny.

Re: “Soundbites: Neil Young to Play VT

Lukas Nelson & POTR are a severely underrated rock band. They'll be at the Jeezum Crow festival at Jay Peak a few days after the Neil Young gig. Gotta wonder if Neil will make his third appearance then...

It should be noted that Benny Yurko of the Nocturnals is also a part of Blues and Lasers.

Re: “Soundbites: Why Care About Net Neutrality?

Why would you assume there's a better than decent chance most people aren't aware of the net neutrality issue? It's definitely been in major news outlets including over a dozen times in the last year in the NY Times. John Oliver and Stephen Colbert have also done pieces just in the past year and the daily show was talking about it back in 2006.
While I think it's great to continue to bring attention to such an important topic, I find it curious you would do so in such a manner as to imply readers have no interest in anything other than Facebook quizzes.
