Jaw Gems keep things fresh tonight with a free show at Local 188

By: Holly Nunan

I truly hope everyone’s re-entry into functioning responsibly as a part of society yesterday was an easy one for all. It definitely was one of those never-ending long weekends of waking up highly confused in last night’s Party Pants next to a half-eaten turkey sandwich, so I can understand how difficult the transition may have been. Tuesday is shaping up to be another night full of a multitude of different kinds of music, so take heed and get out there tonight.

If you’re looking to break it down this Tuesday evening then head on over to Flask Lounge in Portland where another installment of Drop It: Open Decks will be taking place. Beginning at 9, you can sign up for a slot DJing some open tables, all you’ll need to bring are some records, CDs, and a pair of headphones. Tonight Professor Trouble will be on hand to provide an opening set full of underground beats and dubstep. As always Drop It is an absolutely free-of-charge event and is always a good time, so shine up those rage shoes and get ready to throw down.

Check out some roots rock for free this evening by heading over to Gritty’s in the Old Port where Travis James Humphrey will be playing a solo set tonight.  Humphrey has opened for such acts as B.B King, Ricky Scaggs and Bill Chinnock.  He’ll be doing his thing from 9 to midnight tonight.

Over at Slainte Wine Bar & Lounge on Preble Street in Portland, DJ Ponyfarm presents another entertainment-filled evening of free karaoke.  That’s right, if you’re looking to belt it out and be your own rockstar this Tuesday evening, you can do just that starting at 9 o’clock tonight and with absolutely no cover charge.

Maybe a little bit of chilled out, experimental jazz paired with some freestyle rhymes is more your thing this Tuesday night.  If so, then mosey on over to Local 188 on Congress Street where the Jaw Gems will be doing their thing from 10 o’clock until closing time.
