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.
