Check Shane Reis & more at Monday of the Minds at Flask Lounge tonight


Get ready to turn those Monday frowns upside down with some good tuneage and good times. Here’s everything you need to know in order to show this Monday who’s boss. Check out shows such as Emilia Dahlin at Slates, Mothership Monday at Portland House of Music, Mike Preston at Andy’s, and more.


Local siren Emilia Dahlin brings her raw, rootsy folk and dynamic jazz vocals to the stage of Slates this evening for their Monday Music Series. Dahlin’s honest and high-energy performance will get underway at 8:15.


Pop-rock artist Michael Krapovicky returns to Pedro O’Hara’s this Monday evening to host another free open mic event. This event is open to all as the creative gathering and networking begins at 6:30pm.


Andy’s Old Port Pub welcomes back local musician Mike Preston for some acoustic country tunes tonight. This free and all ages show gets started up right around 7.

Mothership Mondays with Andrew Bailie & Crew continue tonight at Portland House of Music and Events. Get down with Bailie and friends as they funk up your Monday with some super fun jams starting at 9pm.

Monday of the Minds, a night of community hip hop, is back at Flask Lounge tonight with a showcase from Shane Reis. Reis has just released a brand new record that should definitely become a part of your regular rotation so I would expect him to perform many new joints from that new album.  You can also anticipate sets from Hannah Harleen, James Grant, Visitor 1, Khed Calvin, Gravy, and Graphic Melee to keep things crankin’ throughout the evening.  I’ve no doubt tonight’s event will be one for the hip-hop history books, so be sure to swing through and check it out as things get poppin’ off right around 9 o’clock with your hosts Stay On Mars and Smokeye.
