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 Sean Von Clauss at The Porthole, Gina & The Red Eye Flight Crew at Portland House of Music, Cumberland Crossing at Andy’s, an Open Mic with Michael Krapovicky at Pedro O’Hara’s, American Ride Duo at Champions and more.


American Ride goes acoustic tonight as they bust out a bunch of modern country covers for you boogie to during a free show at Champions, which starts up at 8:30.


Take on this Monday evening with some musical merriment at Easy Street Lounge as local jam band Hambone returns to host an open jam this evening. Starting at 9 stop by and check out Hambone’s soulful, energetic tunes and sign up to sit in and play some songs of your own during this free and open gathering.


Pop-rock musician Michael Krapovicky returns to host another free Open Mic at Pedro O’Hara’s. Join in on the musical revelry as this all ages event get underway around 6:30pm.


Local singer-songwriter Connor Garvey will be bringing his soulful folk-rock to the deck of the Portland Lobster Company this evening. Check out Connor and a few of his friends as they start making some beautiful noise right around 6.

Boston singer-songwriter Sean Von Clauss will be performing a set of pop-rock originals and covers songs out on the deck of The Porthole this Monday evening. This free show will start up around 6.

Andy’s Old Port Pub welcomes locally based, contemporary bluegrass band Cumberland Crossing for an early evening of bustling bluegrass music. Tonight’s free show gets kickin’ around 7.

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.
