If you’re in as much denial as I am that the work week has arrived, and that the weekend is officially over, here are some cool happenings that will make it seem like the weekend never left and actually granted us a Monday night extension! Fun stuff to check out including Harvard Cavemen at Andy’s Old Port Pub, The Longfellows at Portland House of Music, Open Mic with Michael Krapovicky at Pedro O’Hara’s and more.

LEWISTON

If you’re spending your Monday in the Lewiston area, drop by Pedro O’Hara’s as local pop-rocker Michael Krapovicky hosts another acoustic Open Mic event. Tonight’s free and fun musical gathering gets started up right around 6:30, so grab an instrument and get ready to make some music this evening!

PORTLAND

Local acoustic duo Harvard Cavemen will be serving up a bunch of classic cover tunes at Andy’s Old Port Pub this evening. Join the fellas for some free, all-ages fun as tonight’s show gets underway right around 7.

Take in some bustling bluegrass and grab a slice of delicious Otto pizza at Otto’s lower Congress Street location as Joe Walsh and some of his talented friends serve up some satisfying, toe-tapping tunes starting at 8:30 tonight.

Mondays continue to be one of the most soulful days of the week down at Portland House of Music and Events. The Longfellows, a collection of some of Portland’s funkiest players which boasts members of Model Airplane, Jaw Gems, The Fogcutters, Micromasse Connor Garvey Band, and more, will be bringing the fun and funk to the stage as tonight’s show gets swinging right around 9.

Rhode Island indie roots rockers Deer Tick will be unplugging tonight as they bring their Acous-Tick tour to the stage of Port City Music Hall. This 18+ acoustic show will get underway with an opening set from astral-folk artist Mutual Benefit starting at 9pm.

SACO

Check out some entertaining Open Mic action down at the Kerrymen Pub in Saco where beginning at 7:30 both solo musicians and full bands are welcome to take to the stage and do their thing in front of an audience of music lovers and peers. Tonight’s event is free and certain to be a lot of fun, so swing through if you’re in the area this Monday.
