A Burlington Music Gripe

I think we all have a lot of gripes on the Burlington music scene. Right now I am a gigumundous (spelling?) fan of Radio Bean and Higher Ground - small and big, but both done right.
I am NOT a fan of the Lake Champlain cruise structure. Last night for the Burlington fireworks, I went on the Blues for Breakfast cruise. Blues for Breakfast is one of my all time favorite Grateful Dead cover bands and I always have a fun time dancin' whenever I see them play.
The tickets were $25 and included a good buffet aboard the King Street Ferry. The mood was chipper and people were warm to each other and it had the makings of a great little hippy night on the lake with fireworks - c'mon, who could ask for more?
Everything was fun and fab and then the fireworks started. Now, I think most will agree at this point that Burlington, Vermont fireworks pretty much are the best around - ever. If you think you've seen better fireworks, please comment and let me know!
Anyway, the fireworks ended and so did everything else. Apparently, too many shwilly tools got wasted and seasick and there was a lot of puking and many hidden flasks found. So, the bar closed and the band stopped playing and we were all ushered off the boat right as everyone else was leaving the waterfront and rushing to the always annoying Burlington bar scene - especially for those of us who just want to dance to a fun band! LAME! I chose the cruise for my Independence Day activities so I wouldn't have to deal with the crowds and lines and ridiculous scene.
I have my Raq ticket for the cruise on August 10th and I really hope it's not more of the same. I hate when shwilly tools ruin it for everyone else. Dock the boat and make them walk the plank and then back to sea for the rest of us! Arrrr!

I LOVE Vermont fireworks...in fact just last night I was sitting on a fun rooftop patio here in Denver-and I was so wishing I was in B-town.

I think the 3rd of July is one of my favorite days of the year in Burlington. The people watching is the best, the energy is good, Breakwater's is great :), the fireworks are great! etc.etc.

So 3 cheers to fireworks in Burlington..

but not three cheers for toolboxes that can't handle their liquor!

It is all a bunch of tree hugging hippy crap...

I must say I was not impressed with the short display of fireworks, as I used to watch them over the Statue of Liberty on the Hudson. I was satisfied never the less, I realize Burlington does not have 25 mil to drop on fireworks.

However, I will agree that after the fireworks Burlington was filled with idiotic garys and I left.

Well on a positive note - I went to see the band Quadra on the Lake Champlain Ferry, and it was a lot of fun. The set up is great, and the energy was great, even if the set list was a little before my time, the band did an awesome job including the crowd. The only sad thing to report, is that they ran out of good vodka, oh did I say good vodka, I meant ANY vodka, but I know there are greater tragedies in the world. All in all it's hard to beat, the incredible VT sunset, a few cocktails and a good vibe band all on the waters of Lake champlain.

My friend and I were recently talking about the ubiquitousness of technology in our daily lives. Reading this post makes me think back to that debate we had, and just how inseparable from electronics we have all become.


I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Societal concerns aside... I just hope that as memory gets less expensive, the possibility of uploading our memories onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's one of the things I really wish I could experience in my lifetime.
