About two weeks ago now (sorry for yet another delay on a photo gallery, seems to be a trend around here, eh?) the annual NoshBow Festival was scheduled to hit the streets of Portland, but due to some incessant rain, the festivities had to be moved inside to the recently-opened Portland House Of Music […]

It’s been about a month since the inaugural All Roads Music Festival happened in Belfast, ME (May 16, 2015). HillyTown photographer Conall O’Brien was there to catch the action, and we checked in with festival director Meg Shorette for her thoughts on the experience, and to find out what lies ahead.

Death is the elephant in the room of our lives. It’s one of the few universal inevitabilities we all face in our world, and yet we pretend it doesn’t exist and choose to ignore its impact until we’re directly faced with it. The thought […]

Lady Lamb @ Port City Music Hall – 3.13.15 – photo by Andrew Foster
On Friday the 13th, Port City Music Hall hosted Portland ex-pat Lady Lamb (RIP “the Beekeeper”) for her highly-anticipated record release show (we went record shopping with her the night before […]
On February 27th, Port City Music Hall hosted a mellow evening of northern sounds – Timber Timbre from Canada headlining, and Jacob Augustine from Lincoln, ME opening.
Augustine & his fellow bearded bandmates outright stole the show. Familiar was the singer’s deep soothing voice, seemingly full of wisdom from multiple lives past. New […]
Last night at Port City Music Hall, Odessa and The Lone Bellow kicked off a winter tour with a sold out show. Check out some photos by Cait Kimball (full gallery here) and the rest of the tour dates (continuing tonight in Burlington, VT) further down.
Hi folks, it’s been a while, huh? We’ve missed you. Maybe you’ve missed us. Or maybe you’ve been out enjoying your life and going to all sorts of amazing concerts. We sure hope so. Anyway, last week, our photographer Andrew Foster hit The State for the great Jenny Lewis + Kurt Vile & The Violators […]
For the second year in a row, we put together an official showcase as part of the Brooklyn-based Northside Festival. This time, we teamed up with our friends at StereoActiveNYC (full disclosure: HillyTown was sort of an offshoot/Maine-companion of SANYC in the beginning) and had some help from BreakThruRadio to put together […]
Predictably, Lady Lamb The Beekeeper had an excellent, crowded show at SPACE Gallery, which she always talks about as being her home venue (we’ll never forget that time she hushed a sold out, talkative crowd there before she was even very well-known locally). It’s always great to see her back on that stage, and […]
We’re starting to really get used to – and enjoy – these shows where bands take it to the crowd, be that on the floor, or on chairs, benches, bars, etc. Last night at SPACE Gallery was certainly one of those. Though Brooklyn band Lucius had to cancel, the two acts still on the […]
Can we just make this happen once a month or so? Girl Talk has come to Portland a couple times now, and it’s a reliably fun, sweaty, ridiculous affair of a party. Read on for photos from the latest visit, shot by Tom Couture.
It’s hard to believe that it’s already been three months since this year’s excellent Belfast Free Range Music Festival. The growing fest has quickly become one of our favorite musical moments to look forward to each year in Maine, and we’re proud to be a part of it (through our annual afterparty at Three […]
Sure, this was almost three months ago, but that sounds like a good time to reminisce a bit. On Friday, April 27, we took over the great Dirigimus warehouse space in Portland for a massive party featuring What Cheer? Brigade, Callers, the Milkman’s Union, and the Nogar Family Band. It was a fun, surreal […]
