Last week, thousands of musicians headed to New York City for the CMJ Music Marathon. For the second year in a row, Portland, Maine got its very own showcase. This year, the Portland Music Foundation brought 7 bands (Spose w/Sly Chi, Sunset Hearts, The Milkman’s Union, Billy Libby, Kurt Baker, the Mallett Brothers Band, and the Toughcats) to play at Sullivan Hall on Thursday, October 20. Read on below for a full gallery featuring all of these acts. It was an incredible night and we were glad to be a part of it.

In addition to this showcase, I was also shooting some shows for BrooklynVegan and throwing a free party
