HillyTown.com and Neon Garden! + the Roundup (Jan. 25-30)

Last weekend’s double-header at SPACE with the Dead Of Winter show and then Mission Of Burma left me (and probably a lot of people, given how crowded both shows were) pretty wiped out. It’s Friday though, and again the options are plentiful.

HillyTown.com has teamed up with Neon Garden (whose parties at the White Heart regularly make you shake it) to bring you a free show tonight at Slainte with Lady Magma, Pass Kontrol, and a local opener who may or may not be called Data Entry (no, seriously, that may not be who they are, we’ll find out tonight…). Check out the show details here. Come out and say hi!

And now for your weekly roundup! It’s a quickie this time.

Portland-related music (and more) news:

  • Ray LaMontagne announced a show at Merrill Auditorium. The Low Anthem opens. Tickets on sale soon.
  • Portland Photo Works is hosting a Portland-based photo exhibit appropriately titled Port City Show – you can submit your own work to be considered for it.
  • Be careful if you use the Stonewall Kitchen store for free meals – you may want to skip the desert.
  • Edith & Edna on Exchange Street appears to be closed. Anybody know more about this?
  • There’s some sort of new project space at the North Dam Mill in Biddeford, with a music series sponsored by River Tree Arts. I wish I had more details, but they offer little to no info on it. Tonight they feature Dead End Armory and Emilia Dahlin among others, according to the Bollard.

Not Portland-related, but definitely worth knowing about: The Dark Was The Night charity compilation coming out on February 17th is amazing. I highly recommend checking out the preview tracks and picking it up when it’s available.
