Check out Tsula & The Sad Boys & Rigor Samsa during this week’s Under The Influence at P.H.O.M.E


Holy Hannah Montana Miley Cyrus, I truly thought that Monday was going to do me in, but in the words of Sir Elton John: I’m still standing, yeah, yeah yeah! I feel like we’re probably all sort of into the swing of things after an event filled weekend and should be ready to tear up this Tuesday together. If you’re looking to get down this evening, here are some things to check out such as Ragged Jack at Railroad Pub, Ryan Halliburton & The Still at Portland Lobster Company, Memphis May Fire with Too Late The Hero, The Great North & The Restless Atlantic at Port City Music Hall, Tomato/Tomato at One Longfellow Square and more.


Two Wheel Tuesdays continue at the Railroad Pub in Lisbon tonight as they welcome rockabilly band Ragged Jack to the stage for some fun. This evening’s gathering also serves as a benefit for the Mt. Ararat Special Olympics so make some plans to stop by starting at 6pm.


Get your Tuesday evening started with some free tunes at Portland Lobster Company as Ryan Halliburton and The Still bring some pop-rock tunes to the deck during a free all ages show that starts around 6.

Andy’s Old Port Pub hosts another Tuesday evening of acoustic, old school Louisiana blues as they welcome back Poor Howard to the stage. Tonight’s all ages and free show starts up at 7 o’clock.

Memphis May Fire bring their hard-hitting combo of hardcore, metal and emo to Port City Music Hall tonight for an all ages show that’ll also feature sets from  Too Late The Hero, The Great North and The Restless Atlantic. Things get thundering right around 7:30pm.

Husband and wife duo, Tomato/Tomato (pronounced: tomayto tomahto) are bringing their mix of old timey bluegrass, roots, and folk music back to the stage of One Longfellow Square tonight. Their dynamic live performances feature John on vocals and guitar and Lisa on vocals, washboard, bass drum, and tambourine. Check ‘em out as things get underway around 8pm.

Blue welcomes back the Kelly Laurence Quartet for another Tuesday evening of jazz tunes. This show gets underway at 8 o’clock.

Another Open DJ Night is happening once again at Flask Lounge in Portland.  Starting at 9, you can sign up for a slot DJing on some open tables. All you need to bring are some records, CDs, and a pair of headphones! This event is absolutely free and always a good time, so go on and check it out.

The weekly musical event known as Under The Influence at Portland House of Music and Events continues this Tuesday as they present yet another amazing night of Maine-made music with Tsula & The Sad Boys and Rigor Samsa. These two talented bands will be showcasing their own original indie rock and roll tunes as well as covers from artists that have helped to shape and inspire their sound.  Things get underway at 9 and will feature original jams as well as renditions of songs by such artists as the Smashing Pumpkins, Joan Jett, Dead Kennedys, The Beach Boys and more, so be sure to check it out.

Bull Feeney’s in the Old Port presents another acoustic Open Mic with member of local folk-pop act, The Dapper Gents, Jacob McCurdy. Jacob will be playing and emceeing at this free and fun Tuesday night party. Tonight he invites everyone on to the stage to show off their musical capabilities beginning at 9:30.


If you’re south of Portland this Tuesday and hoping to either play out at an Open Mic or just take in some tunes from some local talent, the make some plans to hear out to The Run of the Mill as they present another installment of their weekly creative and musical event starting at 8 o’clock.
