It’s only the beginning of the week and I already have Friday on my mind. I think it’s best if we just choose to disregard the fact that it is Monday and move towards more fun and upbeat things such as the shows that’ll certainly help you blow away those Monday blues. Let’s just suck it up and have some fun tonight as we attempt to show Monday who is boss. Check out some tunes from Gina & The Red Eye Flight Crew at Portland House of Music, The Proftones at Portland Lobster Company, Open Mic with Michael Krapovicky at Pedro O’Hara’s, Accidental Seabirds at Andy’s Old Port Pub and more.
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 new friends tonight!
Let some sea breezes blow your Monday blues away out on the deck of Portland Lobster Company as The ProfTones play some great blues, R&B, and rock hits at tonight’s free show. The joint starts jumpin’ right around 6 so be sure to stop on by if you’re in downtown Portland tonight.
St. Lawrence Arts presents their next installment of their Monday Night Jazz Series with a performance featuring Kate Campbell Strauss & Friends.
