Dark Hollow Bottling Company brings the good times and good tunes to Sonny's tonight

Holy Hannah Montana Miley Cyrus! We’re really doing it, my babies; we are slowly but surely making our way to the freakin’ weekend! This week has been all killer and no filler and tonight continues to offer up much of the same. So make sure you get some sustenance, do some preventative stretching, and prepare to shake your thing all over the place this thirtsy Thursday evening!

If you find yourself waaay up north this evening, I mean like, in The County, then be sure to check out a great show that’s happening at Eureka Hall Restaurant in Stockholm. Tonight starting at 6:30 the fellas from Tricky Britches will be playing some of their old timey, roots/bluegrass tunes that’ll get your feet stomping and your face smiling. These talented dudes will be serving up their own brand of back porch jam session bluegrass all evening long, so check it out if you’re up that way this Thursday.

If you’re hanging down south and kicking around the Westbrook area tonight, stop on by The Frog & Turtle on Main Street where the acoustic duo known as Uke n’ Smile will be doing their thing. Uke n’ Smile features David Jacquet on ukulele and Keith Kitchen on percussion. It’s a free gig, there’s tasty food, and boozy drinks, so check it out beginning at 7.

Mathew’s on Free Street in Portland prepares for a huge night of local rock as The Motor Creeps, Kamikaze Angel, Weapons at Hand, and Jimmy Jacked gear up to blow the doors down starting right around 7 o’clock.

Portland’s own twisted rockabilly rockers and rollers Pete Witham & The Cozmik Zombies return to Empire Dine and Dance on Congress Street in Portland for their Thursday night residency with a high-energy show downstairs that fires up right around 7:30. It’s a free show full of fun, so why not swing on by and check it out?

Brothers Cody and Clint Phipps will be bringing their acoustic country-rock act, PitchBlack Ribbons, over to The Dogfish Bar & Grille in Portland.  Tonight you can check the fellas out as they play a set for free beginning at 8.

The fellas of North of Nashville head up to Rangeley this evening for gig over at Moose Alley. Starting at 8:30 the duo will be providing catchy originals as well as toe-tapping covers of all of the best country twang your little heart could desire.

Looking to get down to some good tunes this Thursday evening? Then mosey on over to the Brian Boru in the Old Port tonight where Doubting Gravity will be getting the party started right around 9 o’clock. Andi Fawcett and the gents of Doubting Gravity will be brining you the best original pop rock tunes around, so grab a beer and shake your can this evening.

Geno’s in Portland gets rocked this evening with some surfabilly tuneage starting right around 9 o’clock. Check out sets from Thee Icepicks, The Murder Weapon and Cowgirls of the Damned, who will be doing their thing all night long.

Sonny’s in the Old Port switches things up this Thursday with a free set from local roots/Americana favorites Dark Hollow Bottling Company.  The fellas will be on hand to provide good tunes and good times tonight starting at 9:30.

And of course Thursday night means that the fellas of Vinyl Tap are bringing the thunder to Gritty’s in the Old Port. Vinyl Tap is known for making people bust a move to their awesome and exceedingly danceable cover tunes that vary from Huey Lewis to Cee Lo Green, The Beatles, Stevie Wonder and everything in between. There’s never a cover charge and plenty of beer, so check it out starting at 9:30.
