Mild August Night, Underground On A Boat, aka Party Barge! [8.7.11]

Maybe it didn’t turn out to be such a Hot August Night (the slightly wet weather and wind kept the live music inside on the lower deck of the boat) but we still had a great party on the Casablanca Sunday Night. Thank you so much to Peapod Recordings, SPACE Gallery, if and it, . . . → Read More: Mild August Night, Underground On A Boat, aka Party Barge! [8.7.11]

SPACE Gallery Presents: Jerusalem and the Starbaskets / Phantom Buffalo / Foam Castles

Who SPACE Gallery Presents: Jerusalem and the Starbaskets / Phantom Buffalo / Foam Castles When Monday, May 9, 2011 8:00pm – $5-$10 suggested – All Ages Where Apohadion (map) 107 Hanover Street Portland, ME, USA 04101

The Apohadion is Portland’s premier DIY performance space, and Pat Corrigan and Dave Noyes’ newest thing of beauty.

Other InfoColumbia, Missouri stalwart rockers and De Stijl Records signees Jerusalem and the Starbaskets have been holding down their spot in the midwest as the king and queen of the scene. James Jackson Toth (Wooden Wand) is also a big fan and can say it better than we can: “Basically a duo (although sometimes augmented by other members), Jerusalem and the Starbaskets play unfashionable, unpretentious and completely devastating pop music, and they’re one of my all time favorite live bands… sounding like the third Velvets LP played by The Terminals. Note the righteous guitar tone any stoner rock Chud would envy, and catchy, infectious tunes (with a recent emphasis on country melodies) that will stay in your head for weeks. Completely necessary and great.” Our own princely posters, Phantom Buffalo open the night with Foam Castles.

Co-presented by SPACE Gallery and our friends at The Apohadion Theater, located at 107 Hanover Street, Portland Maine. Cash only at the door, first come first serve.

New FREE Foam Castles EP

I momentarily blew the lid on this one yesterday, before I realized that the band was trying to keep it secret (but like I told front man Tyler Jackson – “If it’s on the internet, people can find it”), but now you can officially stream, download, and generally get down with a brand new . . . → Read More: New FREE Foam Castles EP

I love a good dance party. That’s exactly what tonight’s show at SPACE turned into.

Video: Foam Castles cover Metal Feathers’ “Glass Collector”

And the current Portland music scene goes 100% self-referential…

What next, will Sunset Hearts cover Brenda? (Actually, I like where this could go).
