TWO: This Way / The Mallett Brothers

Who TWO: This Way / The Mallett Brothers When Tuesday, March 8, 2011 8:00pm – $2 – 21+ Where Port City Music Hall (map) Portland, ME, USA 04101 Other InfoThis Way: After years of banging out anthematic rock ‘n’ roll on the Portland music scene, This Way have settled into an alt-country / roots-rock sound that is a mixture of lush pop sensibilities and honest down-home roots. It’s vintage wall-of-sound dynamics with predominately acoustic instruments. This Way has an adherence to alluring melodies and vocal harmonies that allow the lyrics to take center stage above a rootsy rhythm section. This Way is in the final stages of finishing their sophomore record, produced by Abel Adame at Drumshow Productions in Portland. As opposed to their pop/rock debut album, We Could All Make History (released in 2008), the new record has manifested itself over the past year to become the most authentic and honest music This Way created to date.

The Mallett Brothers:
The Mallett Brothers Band is a brand new alt country outfit grown out of the seedy underbelly of Northern New England’s ripe and eclectic music scene. With one foot in the muckiest of American country/bluegrass/folk/mountain music and another on the pulse of today’s postmodern musical sensibility, The Mallett Brothers Band has drawn its members from a true witches’ brew of musical histories (including dabbles in punk rock, Americana, folk, funk, metal, hip hop and bluegrass), to create a truly dynamic sound consisting of two parts dreadnought acoustic, three parts soaring vocal harmonies, a touch of twang and howl, and a rhythm section made of steel and fire. If they don’t get your boots tapping, they promise to play their next show at the dump.
