Happy Monday! I’m not entirely certain that I’ve fully recovered from this weekend’s seemingly endless shenanigans, but I’m going to hike up my Party Pants and full throttle my way on through this day. I invite you all to do the same and reward yourself for a job well done by getting out to any or all of these fun Monday evening shows, including Grizzly Bear with Nat Baldwin at the State Theatre, Yard Sail’s See Ya Later show with The Ghouls, Work in Progress & Spacehaven at Bayside Bowl, Pat Foley at The Porthole, The Boneheads at Portland Lobster Company, Gina & The Red Eye Flight Crew at Portland House of Music and Events, and more.
Get the week started with with one heck of a party at Easy Street Lounge as epic jam band Hambone brings some musical merriment to your Monday with an open jam welcome to all. Starting at 9 check out Hambone’s soulful, energetic jams and even sit and play some of your own.
Local pop-rock musician Michael Krapovicky returns to Pedro O’Hara’s to host another open mic event. Join in on the musical revelry as this all ages gathering gets underway around 6:30pm.
OLD ORCHARD BEACH
My Skeleton, a local acoustic act consisting of musicians Alex Roy and Matt Libby, will be performing a free show out at Hooligan’s on the pier in OOB tonight. Join these fellas for some Monday night fun beginning at 9pm.
The Porthole welcomes Pat Foley for some acoustic country-rock. If you’re in the area tonight make some plans to drop by as the music starts up at 6.
Tonight local pop-rock outfit, Yard Sail, says See Ya Later. The band is hosting a fun night of music, and celebrating five years of making music together with party that will see two members off in style as they prepare to head off to college. This See Ya Later show will feature performances by not only Yard Sail, but fellow local bands The Ghouls, Spacehaven, and Work in Progress. This all-ages and free shindig will get shaking promptly at 6 o’clock at Bayside Bowl.
Check out another free and fun show at Portland Lobster Company as The Boneheads return to the deck for some musical revelry this Monday. This local act will liven up your evening with fun Americana and roots sounds starting at 6:30.
Check out the down-home, acoustic roots sounds of David Beam and Friends as they return to Andy’s Old Port Pub for some good times tonight. This lively bunch will be playing some great music for your Monday night wind down so swing through and enjoy this free and all-ages show starting at 7.
Critically acclaimed, Brooklyn-based indie band, Grizzly Bear will be bringing their experimental songs full of lush, intricate arrangements to the stage of the State Theatre this Monday evening. Also on this evening’s bill is avant-garde bassist, Nat Baldwin, who is known for his work in the Dirty Projectors as well as being a contributor to albums by Vampire Weekend, Grizzly Bear and more. Things get underway at 8 during this all-ages event.
Funky Mondays continue to be the place to get down as Gina Alibrio and the Red Eye Flight Crew bring you some of the funkiest, fun and soul-filled sounds around. Alibrio’s impressive pipes are backed by a band made up of most of the members of Model Airplane so basically you’re guaranteed to have a wicked good time boogie-ing down to some terrific tunes as things get started at 9 over at Portland House of Music and Events.
Monday of the Minds, a showcase of some of the scene’s biggest and brightest hip hop artists, continues tonight at Flask Lounge. Tonight they’ll be presenting a BBoy showcase from Portland’s own Boogie Toonz as well as performances by artists Busy Bars, Sympl, San ity, Fatal J, Aynjewl Fayce, Paranormal Adam, and more to showcase some of their beats, bangers and bars. Things get underway right around 9 with early and late night freestyle cyphers to sign up for too.
Aside from here on this blog, she can be found around town taking in local shows, performing with any variety of musical acts (basically anyone who will give her a microphone and a tambourine), and talking up local music on WCSH 6 on Friday mornings around 6:20am.
