Gwar, Goatwhore, Nekrogoblikon, and The Native Howl at Higher Ground, June 15th

Gwar rolled the Black Death Rager World Tour over Higher Ground in Burlington, Vermont.

Gwar

I wrote about the first show on this tour a while back, and I also wrote a little about Goatwhore’s performance at Higher Ground in separate posts (links below). I don’t want to repeat myself too much so I won’t ramble hereabouts – check out those recap notes in the earlier posts if you are interested. This entry exists because I had a few photos to put up that weren’t in the other bits.

Have a look at the bands’ links following the photos, and see them on the road this summer and fall.

Here is another cache of three bands I took a few photos of grouped together for an eclectic rock gallery. I Prevail at Blue Ridge Rock Festival (Danville, Virginia), Frame 42 at Higher Ground (Burlington, Vermont), and Inner Image, also from Blue Ridge Rock Festival.

Here we go. The musical styles of these bands range far and wide, and they all gave us fantastic music to listen to in 2021.

Live Music: Barbacoa and Quiltro at Backside 405, Burlington

Higher Ground kicked off its 2021 summer outdoors live concert series at Backside 405 over Memorial Day weekend with Quiltro and Barbacoa.

The venue is Backside 405 located at 405 Pine Street in Burlington, Vermont. It is outdoors with one stage, food trucks, and a bar – it is a lot like a mini-festival set-up. Open air music is planned for every Friday and Saturday through August.

The first live bands played on Saturday, May 29th. They are both three-piece instrumental rock bands but they play very different music.

Quiltro is a space rock band, laying down laid back, ethereal lines meant to envelope you and send you on a journey, Their first album came out last year and you can get it at the Bandcamp link below. The band is Mark Taylor (guitar and keys), J. D. Hoffmann (drums), and Mike McKinley (bass).

Barbacoa is often described as a surf rock band. They do play in that vein, and also rockabilly along with other recognizable stylings. The music is upbeat and peppy – great for summer nights. Their latest album is Pharoah’s Camaro which came a couple weeks ago (link below). The band is Bill Mullins (guitar), Jeremy Fredericks (drums), and Kirk Flanagan (bass).

For now the crowd is limited to 500 people but could grow as the summer warms and the limits start to melt away. Backside 405 is a great place to spend Friday and Saturday nights – I’ll be there most every weekend.

You can get tickets at the Higher Ground link below, including a season pass to all the shows.
