Blizzard schmizzard, Joe Gallant and friends plan to rock The Big Easy tonight

All right, all right, I know that there is some weather out there, but that shouldn’t deter some of you from getting out and enjoying what is actually still on for this Friday evening. There are a few things to check out around town tonight, so throw those long johns on under your Party Pants and get to where you’re going safe and sound tonight. If you can walk to these events, do so and bundle up! Let’s Nemo!

The Big Easy in Portland keeps the party going despite Mother Nature’s insistance to put a hold on Friday. Tonight things keep cranking with local pop rocker Joe Gallant as he takes the stage with his full band. Special guest Max Garcia Conover as well as a handful of members of the Mallett Brothers Band will be on hand to get the party started right around 8 tonight.

Another Portland show that’ll start right around 7 so you can get home before the parking pan takes affect is happening at Ruski’s where Darien Brahms and Chicky Stoltz are teaming up with a handful of guests to play some respectable covers. It’s a free show, so if you’re hanging in the West End, check it out.

Despite the blizzard, Flask Lounge in Portland hosts another edition of Foundation Friday tonight. Bundle up and get ready for a free dance party featuring the finest underground dance music around. For this month’s edition, special guests Nocturnal and Carl Fisher will be on hand to keep things going strong alongside resident DJ Mr. Dereloid.  Things get fresh right around 9.

Turn up the heat and get funky upstairs at Empire Dine and Dance on Congress Street in Portland tonight with Chaos Sauce and Shut Down Brown who promise to keep you dancing the night away with their blends of progressive-rock, funk, and soul. There’s no cover, so check it out starting right around 9.
