Hello - No mention of Pushing a Brain Uphill Fest or Wolf Eyes but a lot of words on a highschool band - Goodbye

Re: “Thoughts About Mardi Gras

Having gone to school in New Orleans, I am more than familiar with what a GREAT Mardi Gras parade not only looks like, but more importantly, feels and sounds like. Even though we have celebrated, and attended the VT parade every year, because of the kids, it is not something that I look forward to. But! I know what this parade needs to give it a real heart beat (Oooh yeah, pun intended!), one which will have people yearning to come back, year after year. Are?! You?! Reaaady?! Boom da boom, da boom boom! It's the Music! When I think Mardi Gras parade...the first thing that happens is... I hear, and feel, the high school marching bands jammin' it out in front of the procession and the floats. It gets everyone into the spirit, young and old. Plus, here, in the bitter cold, moving to music would keep your skin from falling off. Bonus! & the high school band members would finally be able to score with the ladies as their kewl meter would skyrocket! Win win!

Re: “Soundbites: Concrete Revels

Thank you for the kind words and great photo of my brother Mike. We were happily surprised and touched by the number of people who called him a friend and who looked us in the eye and told us how much he meant to them. Mike did have great musical tastes, and I wish I had more time to discuss it with him. Thanks again. - Tom.

Re: “Soundbites: 2017 Predictions; A Fond Farewell

Dan Bolles, are you trash talking librarians?! When was the last time you attended a library event or for that matter were shushed by a librarian? FFL has held concerts for years, including punk (thank you Big Heavy World). Librarians are bad ass, we just don't make a lot of noise about it until we have to.

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:…
