Virtual high fives all around as my favorite day of the week is here! I’m not sure why, but I have always favored Thursdays. I kind of blame the nineties and the fact that Friends aired on Thursday evenings, those were the days when I was not quite big enough to wear proper Party Pants, but nonetheless, Thursdays rule and this Thursday is no different. Let’s check out what sort of tasty tune selections are in store for this evening.
A promising show is taking place tonight over at One Longfellow Square as Brooklyn’s Lake Street Drive returns to Portland with their catchy pop songs rooted in the familiar, but with a certain bit of flair all their own. Getting things going around 8 o’clock tonight will be opener Laura Cortese.
The super talented fellas in The Ghost of Paul Revere, who brought the house down over at The Asylum this weekend, will be getting things rollin’ over at the Dogfish Bar & Grille in Portland around 8 tonight. If you’re into awesome stringed tunes, soaring voices and foot stomping melodies then make your way over to the Dogfish for tonight’s free show.
If you’re looking to shake what your momma gave ya all night long then look no further than Flask Lounge in Portland where the Blaqdada Dance Party commences right around 9. Hosted by Bary Juicy and Che Ros tonight’s event will feature special guest 32French, so swing on by if you’re looking to get down and shake those hips this Thirstday evening.
Local pop-rockers of the ass kicking cover band (yes, I used the phrase ‘ass kicking cover band’ and meant it), Kilcollins will be doing their thing tonight over at RiRa in Portland. Rocking and/or rolling gets going right around 9 tonight.
The Big Easy‘s regular, chilled out Thursday crowd will be shuffling in right around 9:30 for this week’s Band Beyond Description show. What to expect: hula hoops, hippies, and good times for all with Portland’s favorite Grateful Dead cover band, who actually cover way more than just The Dead. So if you’re into mellowing your mind, get your can over to The Big Easy.
North of Nashville will be rocking it tonight over at Brian Boru right around 9:30pm and won’t stop the party until last call. Jay and Andrew infuse their love of pop music with a little bit of bluegrass for a sound that is truly American. This is a free show and always a lot of fun, so check it out.
If you want to do some rocking and/or rolling tonight to everything from The Grateful Dead to Stevie Wonder, Charlie Daniels, The Beatles and everything in between, then you should probably scoot your pooch over to Gritty’s on Fore Street in Portland for another Thursday night with Velourosaurus. It’s always free and always a helluva time so check ‘em out starting right around 9:30.
