Man, I wish Eugene Hutz would loosen up a little bit. With a little more charisma, he could really go places. I'm kidding, of course. The Burlington expat and the leader of globetrotting gypsy punks Gogol Bordello has done pretty... Continue reading

Aaand we're back! I had hoped to update my travels around the CMJ Music Marathon in semi-real time last week. But in hindisght, that was probably a little too ambitious. Between panels during the day, endless showcases at night and... Continue reading

Howdy, folks. And welcome to the 2011 CMJ Music Marathon, virtual edition, live from drizzly New York City. After a delay plagued arrival in NYC yesterday afternoon and a minor fiasco at registration — no, we don't know, or care,... Continue reading

Rumors have been swirling for a couple of days now that VT's Phinest would be throwing an Irene benefit gig within the next week or so, somewhere in the state. Well, guess what? According to a press release just sent... Continue reading

In today's column, I mentioned Justin Levinson would be taking to the stage at Nectar's this Friday, celebrating the release of a new single he recently recorded with Nashville's Madi Diaz. Here's that very single, in clever video form. Continue reading

It's hardly news in Burlington that the Vacant Lots are blowin' up. The garage-psych duo have had quite a run of late, touring the country with the likes of Spectrum, dropping by showcases such as SXSW and the Austin Psych... Continue reading

I ran into Matt Hagen of Lendway/Nefarius Frenzy a week or two back, and he was positively raving about a surprise act at a recent Metal Monday, the metal series at Nectar's he's been curating/hosting with Metal Matt Longo from... Continue reading

This just in from the lads at Angioplasty Media and GPN's Matt Burr, Daytrotter's Barnstormer series is coming to Vermont. Specifically, the Old Lantern in Charlotte on Sunday August 28. For the unfamiliar, Barnstormer is like a mobile mini-festival curated... Continue reading

Unfortunately, news of this show came in too late for me to make mention of or list in the paper this week. But local indie pop outfit Hello Shark are playing Muddy Waters in Burlington this very evening at 10... Continue reading

Yeah, yeah. I know. It's been a while. I could make excuses for the dearth of posts this past month. I could offer sincere regrets, guarantees it will never happen again, solemn vows to be a more vigilant blurbsmith. But... Continue reading

I'm usually not much for reality TV unless it involves Padma Lakshmi, but this is kinda cool. Or horrifying, depending on how you feel about Radiohead. It seems a UVM pre-med student, Devon Barley — who is also the music... Continue reading

Today's missive comes by way of local indie-folk outfit Osage Orange. It's a nifty little video for their song, "Alchemy," that fairly screams Burlington bohemia. You've got yer ragtag dancin' fools clad in vagabond chic garmenture, lots of pointy facial... Continue reading
