Check out Pete Witham live at Blue in Portland tonight

It’s time to take on the first Tuesday of the year by hiking up those Party Pants and getting to it this evening! We made it through Monday unscathed so why not celebrate this achievement with some good tunes and good times this Tuesday evening? Here are some places to get the party started at tonight!

The Thirsty Pig in the Old Port is back at it tonight for its weekly open mic known as The Exchange. It’s an event for all musicians looking to collaborate, showcase and workshop their own original music. All ages, genres and musical abilities are welcome to join in on this evening’s fun, so be sure to stop by and check things out things get underway right around 7 o’clock. 

A great night of indie rock storms the Seacoast area this evening as a trio of acts take to the stage of The Red Door in Portsmouth, NH. Starting at 8 o’clock you can check out live sets from Portland’s own Foam Castles alongside Blinders and Autumn Attics.

Blue on Congress Street in Portland welcomes Pete Witham to the stage this evening for a show filled with songs and stories. You’ll recognize Pete from his work as front man to the twisted Americana and rockabilly outfit, The Cozmik Zombies. Tonight Pete performs a solo set, which gets underway right around 8, followed by an open acoustic jam welcome to any and all musicians right around 9 o’clock.  

Flask Lounge in Portland presents another open mic night for DJs this Tuesday. Tonight’s event allows up-and-coming record spinners to take a chance and get up on the tables alongside veteran DJs. All you need to bring to participate are your records, CDs and controller. All formats of music are welcome as the fun gets starting right around 9.

Slainte Wine Bar & Lounge on Preble Street in Portland presents another fun-filled Tuesday of karaoke courtesy of DJ Ponyfarm.  If you’re looking to belt out all of your favorite 90s jams, then stop on by and do just that starting at 9.

If you wanna take some time out this Tuesday and chill out to some experimental jazz that mosey on over to Local 188 on Congress Street in Portland this evening where the Jaw Gems will be doing their thing from 10 o’clock until closing time.
