Who Downtown Boys / Lunch Cult / Bad Leg When Friday, May 29, 2015 8:30pm – $8 – 18+ Where SPACE Gallery (map) 538 Congress St Portland, ME, USA 04101 Other InfoDowntown Boys / Lunch Cult / Bad Leg “Downtown Boys are a bilingual political sax punk party from Providence, RI, featuring members of What Cheer Brigade. They write songs about smashing the prison-industrial complex, racism, queerphobia, capitalism, fascism, boredom, and all things people tell us that try to close our minds, eyes, and hearts. Following right in step with their punk-rock forefathers and mothers, their blistering and inspiring performances challenge audiences and throw them back into the pit when things get too heavy. Their new LP Full Communism drops on May 4 via Don Giovanni (Screaming Females, Jeffrey Lewis, Mitski).

They’ll be joined by experimental, garbáge-rockers Lunch Cult and fresh Portland punk power trio Bad Leg.”

AFRAID – SINISTER VIBES

 

Honesty time — we’re huge fans of (nearly) everything that comes out of Jakob Battick’s mind (some of the later Jakob Battick and Friends albums still seem a bit too down still).

KAKI KING: The Neck Is A Bridge To The Body / Lisa/Liza – SPACE Gallery – 02/28/15

Who KAKI KING: The Neck Is A Bridge To The Body / Lisa/Liza When Saturday, February 28, 2015 8:30pm – $15 adv/$20 dos – 18+ Where SPACE Gallery (map) 538 Congress St Portland, ME, USA 04101 Other Info”Kaki King’s groundbreaking new work, The Neck Is A Bridge To The Body, sees the renowned guitarist/composer joining forces with visual performance pioneers Glowing Pictures to construct an innovative, immersive multi-media production in which the guitar itself takes center-stage. King and Glowing Pictures – known for their work with such artists as Animal Collective, David Byrne & Brian Eno, Beastie Boys, and TV On The Radio – have re-conceived the guitar as a screen for a remarkable range of new digital projections. Luminous visions and unexpected textures are cast onto a signature acoustic guitar customized specifically for this production. The guitar gradually evolves, taking on a living, breathing existence of its own.

Hailed by Rolling Stone as “a genre unto herself,” Kaki King is a true iconoclast, a visionary musician/artist whose singular work rightly stands out amongst the easily formatted. Over her decade-long career, the Brooklyn-based guitarist/composer has recorded five extraordinarily diverse and distinctive LPs, performed with such icons as Foo Fighters, Timbaland, and The Mountain Goats, contributed to a variety of film and TV soundtracks (spanning Golden Globe-nominated work on Sean Penn’s Into The Wild to scoring – and appearing in as guitar-playing hand double – the acclaimed 2007 drama, August Rush), and played to ever-growing audiences on innumerable world tours.

Lisa/Liza, “Maine’s #1 lo-fi folk hypnotist” (according to Owen Ashworth of Casiotone for the Painfully Alone) opens up the night with a set of her spare and delicate psych-folk gems. ”
