Belt 'em out at tonight's Open Mic with Jacob McCurdy at Bull Feeney's

Woah. That’s all I really have to say about being catapulted into reality today after a long, holiday weekend.  I hope you all enjoyed some down time, good times, fun times, and all that jazz. This week is cranking right into action starting with tonight, so let’s see what’s on the agenda for this Tuesday evening, shall we?

Again, I’m not certain how soggy this Tuesday evening will turn out, so if the weather holds out you can plan on getting things going with some live music out on the Portland Lobster Company deck over on Commercial Street in Portland where local rocker and member of The Grumps, Ryan Halliburton will be teaming up with some of his musically-inclined pals to play some fun tunes starting right around 6 o’clock. It’s free and fun, so if you’re looking for something to do a bit earlier in the evening, check it out.

Another Nashville-style Songwriters in the Round event will be taking place at the wonderful Blue on Congress Street in Portland this evening. Tonight they welcome one and all to participate in this event that gets underway right around 7. At around 8:15 local artist Brian Patricks will play a featured set of songs to close out the evening. Anticipate great songs and stories at this free, fun event.

With Cover to Cover on hiatus I’ve been spending my Tuesday nights down at The Asylum in Portland where DJs Kurt Baker and Mark Curdo spin all of the best party tunes all night long! It’s seriously some of the best music to shake your can to, so I encourage y’all to bust out your finest Party Pants and cut a rug with me…plus it’s embarrassing to KB if I’m the only one working it out on the dance floor. So follow me down to the basement where you’ll Mark and KB joining rock n’ roll forces for Wild Thing, a serious dance party featuring the finest garage rock, mod, wild soul, punk, new wave, surf, maximum R&B and more. It’s a dollar to get in and there are $1 beers and $3 well drinks to keep you hydrated as you hit the dance floor. Things get shaking right around 8:30 tonight, so stretch it out and then check it out!

Flask Lounge in Portland is ready to party with another edition of their unique open mic night especially for DJs. This free dance party, which allows up and coming record spinners to take a chance and get up on the tables during the evening, starts right around 9. All you need to participate are some records, CDs and controller. All formats of music are welcome, so swing through and get your DJ on!

It’s Tuesday night, which means it’s time to show Slainte Wine Bar & Lounge on Preble Street in Portland what’s up by belting some of your favorite songs at this week’s free karaoke party with DJ Ponyfarm. Get ready to sing all of your all-time favorite 90s jams starting right around 9 o’clock. It’s free, fun, and a great way to show off your powerful pipes, so check it out.

Bull Feeney’s acoustic open mic night continues in the Old Port this evening with lead vocalist of The Dapper Gents, Jacob McCurdy playing and emceeing for this free event. Tonight Jacob invites everyone onto the stage to show off their musical talents right around 9:30. If you’ve really got some skills you might even find yourself with a paying gig at Bull Feeney’s, so grab your ax and get ready to show ‘em what you’ve got this Tuesday.

Jaw Gems are primed and ready to deliver some smooth jazz tunes for your Tuesday evening with a free show down at Local 188 on Congress Street in Portland. Starting at 10, this group of talented dudes will be laying it down for you to enjoy all night long.
