Mama’s Boomshack plays their final show at Portland House of Music tonight


Yo, I’m going to be straight up with you guys, I have been up for over 24 hours helping my radio family raise funds for the Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital. My brain functionality is non-existent so my apologies that this isn’t a full-on Friday Bilbo Bloggins showing, but I done did my best to get you the Newz and as Radiohead says, the best you can is good enough. Tons of stuff to do please do the things, I am going to take a day-long nap.
