Party down with Ice Cold Zima tonight at Portland House of Music and Events


All right, we made it through another Monday, which means it is time to go full throttle into Tuesday night. Get ready to put the pedal to the metal and get down on it this evening at shows such as Ryan Halliburton and The Still at Portland Lobster Company, the Kelly Laurence Quartet at Blue, an open mic with Uke n’ Smile at Sea Dog Brewing Company and more. Here’s what’s shaking all around town and beyond.


Portland chanteuse Renee Coolbrith joins forces with local piano man Kris Rodgers for another free happy hour set out on the patio of Portland House of Music and Events. Join this dynamic duo as they help you get your Tuesday evening started with some terrific tunes beginning at 5 o’clock.

Take Tuesday to the limit with some free music over at the Portland Lobster Company as Ryan Halliburton and The Still return to the deck with some fun pop-rock during a free all-ages show that’ll start up at 6.

Three talented singer-songwriters from right here in Portland will be teaming up for an evening of stories and song during an In The Round event at Blue tonight. Starting at 6 Max Garcia Conover, Griffin Sherry and Max Davis converge on stage for a show featuring their original roots, Americana, and folk compositions.

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

90’s cover band Ice Cold Zima will be rockin’ their last night of their summer residency at Portland House of Music and Events tonight. Travel back to a time of JNCO jeans, bucket hats, and bowl cuts with some cover tunes of No Doubt, Fiona Apple, The Cardigans, 4 Non Blondes, Green Day, Lauryn Hill, Bonnie Raitt, Stone Temple Pilots, Alanis Morissette, and more as things get jumpin’ right around 9.

Another Open DJ Night is happening again at Flask Lounge.  Starting at 9, you can sign up for a slot DJing on some open tables and 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.


Acoustic act Uke n’ Smile will be hosting another Open Mic at Sea Dog Brewing Company this evening. All artists of different skill levels and genres are welcome as this free, creative gathering gets underway at 8pm.
