BumbleBee Brunch Playlist: 5/20/2022


Memorial Day weekend (and the unofficial start of the Summer season) is only a week away and here in Southern New England we're getting ready for a couple days of 90-degree heat. The prospect makes me absolutely giddy... I LOVE the heat & humidity of Summer. Summer also means the return of outdoor music shows!

Friday's show saw fresh new cuts from Santigold, Beck Black, Tamar Berk, Grand Splendid, Sports Team, Zola Jesus, Super User Friendly, and Yard Act. Boston was well represented with tunes from Bird Language (their NEW LP "625 Days" dropped on Friday,) The Chelsea Curve (who are busy at the moment touring Great Britain,) A Bunch Of Jerks, and The Worst (Portland, ME.) Boston trio Muzzins and Samantha Farrell performed on Saturday 5/21/22 at Harpoon Fest at the Harpoon Brewery in South Boston. We played the 2021 Muzzins single "Electromagnetic" and went back to Samantha Farrell's 2016 LP "September Sun" for a beautiful track entitled "Lover's Prayer."

So Memorial Day weekend marks the return of the Boston Calling Music Festival. Congratulations to all the BumbleBee Radio artists (The Chelsea Curve, Dutch Tulips, Coral Moons, Paper Tigers, and Aaron & The Lord) who made the bill along with the big national acts for the three-day festival. That said there are many of us (myself included) who simply can't afford to lay out the cash for the steeply priced festival tickets. So we spent some time on Friday's brunch program discussing some alternate ideas for music & fun next weekend.

Saturday (5/28) afternoon from Noon to 6 PM Diablogato is hosting a musical party at Porch Southern Fare & Juke Joint in Medford along with The Dogmatics, Duck & Cover, and Jittery Jack. Everett's Bone Up Brewing (who make some really good beer) will have a beer garden for this afternoon of great music and food. Click HERE for more info. We cued-up "Gimme The Shakes" from The Dogmatics and "Attention Economy" from Duck & Cover to get you ready.

Later that night (Saturday 5/28) head on over to the NEW Roadrunner music venue in Brighton for an 80's Throwback night celebrating the 42nd Anniversary of Boston nightclub The Channel. Essential 80's Boston band The Del Fuegos headline this show also featuring Nervous Eaters, Fred Pinneau (from WBCN favorites The Atlantics,) Barrence Whitfield, Charlie Farren (Farrenheit and The Joe Perry Project,) Rick Berlin, and more! Doors at 7:00 PM... Music at 8:00.

At $45 (in advance) and $50 (at the door) this great evening of Boston music is a bargain compared to a single-day general admission ticket at $150 for Boston Calling ($350 if you actually want to make out the performers on-stage!) We played "I Still Want You" by The Del Fuegos and "Lonely Hearts" by The Atlantics on the Friday show.
