Sorry if you are all sick of hearing my voice after a week of this AD campaign (I certainly am), but I am really excited about this new Conscious Thursdays series as a way to continue the positive momentum generated by the "Occupy" gigs and spread the "good vibe energy flow" through music.
Also, Thursday's show will be very special because of the Burlington debut of Soulstace, a performance by Workingmans Army (my favorite "under the radar" Vermont band ...need to get some... Read full post
In response to the discussion that has started regarding a potential Vermont Musicians Union…. I did some critical thinking last night to consider the question of whether such an organization would be worthwhile for its members (Conclusion: I think it would) and, if so, what valuable services could such a union provide.
The following bullet points are the results of my brain-storming:

With a growing number of folks listening to the station, perhaps it is a bit overindulgent to queue lists of 10 or more requests at one time?

It seems we’re swimming in a sea
Of misguided choices, misappropriation
Debt piled high as an elephant’s eye
Flanked by the towers of subcontractors
Digging our graves with an excavator.

Was treated to two amazing shows at Langdon Street over the past few weeks when Viscus and Electric Sorcery made rare appearances on this side of the state. Thanks again!
I am sensing an alarming trend as the top acts in Vermont are having a very difficult time drawing a commensurate audience to attend shows and share the vibe. Personally, I consider bands like Viscus and Electric Sorcery, MADMAN3, The Pulse Prophets etc. to be a public resource ....they make an important... Read full post
