The day following the Old Port Fest is always, always, always a rough one. I hope you guys are hanging tough and making it through this Monday unscathed. There is a glorious light at the end of the tunnel and it’s got a bunch of good times, good people and good tunes, so keep on keepin’ on as we make our way into Monday night and then make some plans to check out shows such as Sam Chase at The Porthole, an Open Mic with Michael Krapovicky at Pedro O’Hara’s, Gina & The Red Eye Flight Crew at Portland House of Music, The Delta Knights at Portland Lobster Company, Tom Gizzi at Andy’s Old Port Pub and more!
If you’re spending this Monday in Lewiston make plans to drop by Pedro O’Hara’s as local pop-rocker Michael Krapovicky hosts another acoustic Open Mic. 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!
Decompression Chamber Music is an informal and entertaining intro to small ensemble chamber music that’s offered up during the rush hour of the day to encourage audiences to catch an hour or so of tunes to help them unwind their day. Tonight the band returns to One Longfellow Square with the intention to bring Bela Bartok’s Sixth Quartet to life on stage beginning at 6 o’clock.
Take in some tunes out on the Portland Lobster Company deck this evening as they welcome back local act the Delta Knights for some R&B, blues, soul, funk, swing, rock, jazz and more starting right around 6:30.
Funky Mondays continue to be the perfect 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 featuring members of Model Airplane so you know you’re gonna 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 presents Ace Is Working and P.Seize at Flask Lounge tonight. Indigenous Immigrants will also be returning to the stage to rock a set alongside Peace Out Pat and Ill Murray. Check out a great night of hip hop and good vibes as this free show starts up at 9.
