Oh my, Monday, you’re doing your best to thunder punch me in the throat today, but I refuse to let you win. If you’re duking it out with this first day of the week might I suggest taking some time out and enjoying yourself this evening at any one of these fine establishments. Check out some tunes from Gina & The Red Eye Flight Crew at Portland House of Music, Stephen Chopek at Andy’s, Monday of the Minds at Flask, and more!
Slates Monday Night Concert Series continues tonight with GoldenOak, a local folk group whose genre-blending sound has them steadily emerging as a musical force in New England. You can see them tonight as their performance begins at 8:15pm.
If you’re anywhere near the Lewiston area this Monday, drop by Pedro O’Hara’s where local pop-rocker Michael Krapovicky will be hosting another installment of his weekly acoustic Open Mic event. Tonight’s free event gets underway at 6:30 and is open to all, so grab an instrument and get ready to make some music, and some new friends tonight!
If you’re out and about this Monday afternoon swing over to Portland Lobster Company where Mitch Alden will be performing. Mitch Aldren is the creative force behind alternative rock band, Now is Now, so stop by and check out his solo set, which starts right around 12pm.
Take I’m some folk-pop and indie rock by way of Memphis, Tennessee tonight as Stephen Chopek plays a free show at Andy’s Old Port Pub. This all ages performance begins at 7pm.
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 is back at Flask Lounge tonight with a Halloween hip-hop celebration for the living and the dead! Stop through and check out some of New England’s brightest emcees including Visitor 10, The Bumbling Woohas, Myles Bullen, Laughing Animal and Human Speakers. There will also be some live art happening courtesy of Hidden Ladder Collective as this free spooktacular party starts up at 9.
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. She is also the Promotions Director for WFNK, WTHT and WHXR in Portland as well as an On Air Personality at 107.5 Frank FM.
