A grungy, intergalactic dance party takes over The Big Easy

By: Holly Nunan

It’s almost that time where we all become zombies due to tryptophan and apple pies, so we better make the most of our time before the food coma hits.  Tonight’s shaping up to be seriously fun, so let’s give ol’ Tuesday a look-see.

If you’re in the Cape Elizabeth area this Tuesday evening, start this off with some acoustic soul & blues courtesy of Anna & The Diggs over at The Local Buzz. Delightful tunes and delicious coffee make for an awesome evening that gets underway right around 8 o’clock.

A night of pulsing percussion and driving drum beats makes it way on to the stage of SPACE Gallery in Portland this evening where former Oneida drummer, John Colpitts will be bringing his work in the new act, Man Forever, to life.  The percussive force behind the likes of Dan Deacon and Teeth Mountain, Greg Fox, will also be on hand for this evening’s drum performance in his act Guardian Alien.  Local psychedelic act Herbcraft gets things started right around 8 o’clock.

Slainte Wine Bar & Lounge on Preble Street in Portland presents another entertainment-filled night of karaoke with DJ Ponyfarm.  That’s right, if you’re looking to belt it out and be your own rock star, you can do just that with absolutely no cover charge starting right around 9 tonight. Bring some buds, ingest some liquid cougar (boozey booze) and do it to it.

The Big Easy in Portland invites everyone out to a Cover to Cover double header as Lit on the Flash and Mother Leopard team up to bring you two classic albums in their entirety as well as original sets of tunes for a full night of rocking, rolling, and general partying. Lit on the Flash will be reprising their role as grunge rockers Nirvana and are set to perform the band’s notorious album Nevermind in its entirety. Mother Leopard will also be doing their thing by turning the evening into an epic intergalactic dance party as they pay tribute to MGMT’s record Oracular Spectacular. The party starts promptly at 9.

Another edition of Drop It: Open Decks Night is happening once again at Flask Lounge in Portland.  Starting at 9, you can sign up for a slot DJing on some open tables, all you need to bring are some records, CDs, and a pair of headphones! Tonight DJ Turd Ferguson will provide an opening set of electronic music to get this started.  This event is absolutely free-of-charge and always a good time, so go on and check it out.

If you’re looking to save some scratch for all that Black Friday shopping, you can head over to Local 188 on Congress Street in Portland where Jaw Gems will be keeping things fresh with some experimental jazz that will also feature some Portland emcees. Things get underway right around 10 and are absolutely free.
