Under The Influence continues tonight with Doubting Gravity at Portland House of Music


After a wonderful three-day weekend it’s time to take on reality and kick it into full gear for another working week. Thankfully Tuesday night seems to understand that just because it’s back to work doesn’t mean the party’s got to be put on hold. There’s a ton of cool stuff happening all around tonight including Lyle Divinsky at Portland House of Music, Scolded Dogs at Portland Lobster Company, Pat Foley at Andy’s Old Port Pub and more so check it out!


Self-proclaimed Sasquatch of Soul, Lyle Divinsky will be doing his thing at Portland House of Music this evening. Starting at 5, Lyle and a few friends will be laying down some seriously smooth funk, soul and R&B during this free show.
