The Cush Vermont Farewell Shows at The Monkey 4/9 and 4/10

Burlington's most promising, The Cush, are playing their "final local performance for the foreseeable future" tonight at 9pm at The Monkey House as well as another "final performance" tomorrow night, same time and place. This writer is sad and maybe a little heartbroken to see The Cush saying goodbye, but I'm sure I speak for the city and state when I wish them continued success with their unique take on the dreamy alt sound. The Cush are releasing their third full-length album, Between The Leaves, April 20th (expect a review soon). Playing alongside The Cush for both dates are some of Burlington's best. Friday will be Lowell Thompson and Cave Bees. Saturday is Mark Lind and Ryan Power.

Jer Coons comes home - Burlington 4/8

On the road recently with Trevor Hall and John Oates (yes, Thee), Jer Coons is coming home to Vermont tonight, playing at Higher Ground in South Burlington.  Jer has been consistently touring over the last year, playing to full venues from Florida to Madison, WI.  He's picking up fans in every city he shows his shining face - and it's well-deserved. He's been working his ass off, and his show (and band) are tighter than ever.

Yeah, it's pop, but it's damn good.  No need for anyone to get embarrassed, Jer's music challenges fans of all ages and genres to just try and have a bad time.  Check out the video for his single, "Legs" here.  His last show here was sold out, so if you haven't yet - GET YO' TICKETS NOW!  It will be an early show, like most at higher Ground these days - doors open at 7 p.m.  Taylor Carson will open.

Musicians needed for fundraiser!

mw

It's A Gift (29A Union Square across from the Citizen's Bank)  is in threat of being shut down due to finances. The store sells artwork and crafts by adults with physical and mental disabilities. During the Somerville Open Studios May 1st and 2nd, It's A Gift will have silk-screening in the store. Community members may bring in clothing or buy vintage clothing or a t-shirt ($5 or less) to have an image by one of our artists printed on them for $10.

In the evenings is where they need musicians to volunteer their time and talent to saving the store. It's a Gift will be having a Save Our Store fundraiser concert as a Somerville Open Studios after party. Starting at 6:30pm on May 1st and 2nd musicians can play a 30-45 min. set each. As an extra incentive for musicians, they can make a silkscreen of a band image/logo so that the musicians can make t-shirts,etc. If the image is brought in at the Somerville Open Studios they can have it ready with in a couple weeks.

The Day's Weight at Northeastern 4/8

It must be tough to have an apostrophe in your band's name - but I guess that's how you weed out the articulate from the people who don't care.

I care, and you should. The Day's Weight will be playing with Delta Spirit and Movers and Shakers tomorrow night, Thursday, April 8th at Northeastern's afterHOURS club. The show starts around 7:30 p.m.

If The Day's Weight strikes a familiar chord, it's because they played to a sold out room at The Deli's Boston launch party last November.  Though Pat McDermott and Kyle Toomey grew up together playing music in the outskirts of Boston, the band officially hails from Burlington, VT. The two have gathered a strong assortment of musicians from LA to Berklee, and have basically brought together some serious sound.

Dark but refreshing, The Day's Weight bring the old west to Indie rock.  McDermott's voice defines the band's persona - a voice steeped in sexuality and somehow familiar.  Each song successfully tells a story, and they'll make sure to drive it home. I think they'll impress the Delta Spirit crowd - which means it's worth being on time for this show.

Ray Neades benefit show at Church 4/8-4/10

rayneades

This Thursday through Saturday nights, there will be a benefit show for local musician Ray Neades at Church. Sadly, Ray passed away this past December, far too early at the age of 42. If you did not know Ray, he was perhaps most well known for fronting an AC/DC cover band by the name of Beefy DC. He got so much joy from playing music.

I saw his band perform at Paradise one night and after his set I asked him how he was. His face beaming, he told me he how he had always wanted to play that room, and that he felt like he was on top of the world.

At the time, I worked with Ray at Guitar Center. Outside of performing music, he was honestly one of the funniest people I have ever met in my life. He made my workdays so much better with his sense of humor. He told the kinds of jokes that I retell to people over and over again. He had such a big heart, filled with life and love of music.

The proceeds from the shows will go to help his family alleviate some of the expenses related to Ray’s death. The shows feature a large cast of local musicians coming out in support of Ray and his family, including Jenny Dee and the Delinquents and Andrea Gillis. You can get more info and buy tickets HERE

RIP, Ray. We will miss you.
