For this, the third installment of our collaboration with BTR Hear & There, we stopped by Lisa/Liza‘s apartment in the West End of Portland on a chilly, foggy day, for an intimate, solo performance of her song, “There In The Water.”
The video is also available on YouTube.
Upcoming tour dates: 2/14 @ Precinct . . . → Read More: BTR Hear & There MAINE #3: Lisa/Liza – “There In The Water”

We’re back with another installation of this 4-part BTR Hear & There video series with Maine artists. Last week, we gave you if and it performing “Undone” at Bunker Brewing Company in Portland.

Sometimes we just like to spring fun things on you. Today marks the beginning of a series of video collaborations as part of BreakThru Radio‘s BTR Hear & There series, presenting bands performing in interesting locales. For this MAINE-themed series, we spent a week in and around Portland working with some of our favorite local . . . → Read More: BTR Hear & There MAINE #1: if and it – “Undone”
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 . . . → Read More: Lady Lamb and Kaki King Played SPACE [12.4.12]
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 . . . → Read More: Pearl And The Beard and You Won’t Played SPACE [12.2.12]
What, did you think that just because it’s Sunday and a soggy day that you get to stay in for the night? Think again. Two shows in the Arts District are sure to get the crowds out. Port City has Trampled By Turtles (whose name we just can’t get past, but they do seem quite . . . → Read More: Slippery Sunday, What To Do Tonight
I’m actually in town for a bit so we’ll be paying even more attention to what’s happening in Portland this week.
Tonight the big show is obviously Smashing Pumpkins at the State. Not sure what their shows (or lineup) are like these days, but if they play at least 5 songs pre-1999, it’ll probably . . . → Read More: Tonight in Portland!
Dinosaur Jr are back in town tonight, headlining a show at the State Theatre. You probably already knew that.
Now for a bit of shameless self-promo: If you’re still up for fun (and have some hearing left) head over to Slainte after the show for a free party with Mount Sharp (ex-Marie Stella . . . → Read More: Dinosaur Jr Tonight, Late Show With Mount Sharp
Olas is more than just a band: it’s music, dance, performance, and now a film! Debuting at SPACE Gallery on December 15, Olas The Film is a portrait of the music, the dance, the people, the lives, the partnerships and the friendships of Olas.

There’s a whole lot of strange going on in this video for Contrapposto‘s single, “Cousinfriends,” but we like it. What do you think?
So many of our favorite Maine bands have managed to make their way down to NYC and found time to do sessions at Serious Business Music for BreakThru Radio: Kurt Baker, Sunset Hearts, Brenda, The Milkman’s Union, Marie Stella, etc… and now The Rattlesnakes! Watch the video below!

Today, VICE premiered the video for Sontiago‘s song, “Muscle Car,” featuring Therese Workman from Oh My Goodness (who we’ve been harassing forever to play a show, and will continue to do so). It’s a fun track and the video is just a big old Portland love fest for us with so many familiar faces making . . . → Read More: New Sontiago video – “Muscle Car” + Lady Lamb news
Interview by Kevin Steeves.
“It’s just a fuckin’ star-spangled tried and true regular rock’n’roll band which happens to have six people from the local scene in it. If that’s the criteria for a supergroup, most bands in this town would probably qualify. We wish we were the Traveling Wilburys, that would rule.”
