Doubting Gravity are ready for the perfect pop-rock party tonight at Brian Boru

It’s almost time to join the party known as The Weekend so you might as well start preparing now. Here’s what the what is for your weekend pre-game as it’s time to get down on it this thirsty Thursday!

If you’re kicking it down and around Westbrook tonight, stop by The Frog & Turtle on Main Street where the local acoustic duo known as Uke n’ Smile will be doing it to it early this Thursday. Uke n’ Smile features David Jacquet on ukulele and Keith Kitchen on percussion singing some feel good tunes to kick back and relax to. It’s a free gig, there’s tasty food, and boozy drinks, so check it out starting at 7 o’clock this evening.

Pete Witham & The Cozmik Zombies bring the party downstairs at Empire Dine and Dance in Portland this evening. Tonight these fellas play the very best rockabilly and honky-tonk songs you could ever shake your hips to, so if you’re kicking about this thirsty Thursday check out their free show, which gets crankin’ right around 7:30 tonight.

Hope you grabbed your tickets to paradise and are ready to be Eddie Money’s little baby as the legendary rocker takes the stage for a special unplugged, acoustic solo show at The Asylum in Portland tonight. Local rocker John Clavette will get things started with an opening set of tunes right around 8.

Mathew’s on Free Street in Portland is ready to rumble with an epic night of local rock. Starting at 8 o’clock get ready to groove with The Diapasyn, Two Forty Gordy and The KBG.

If you find yourself Thursdaying in the Seacoast area, then be sure to check out an excellent folk/Americana show happening at The Red Door in Portsmouth, NH. Tonight Jon Nolan, Roy Davis and Jonathan Frazer Lessard join forces for a night of musical revelry. Things get underway upstairs at The Red Door right around 8:30.

Geno’s Rock Club on Congress Street in Portland gears up for a night chock full of local, alternative rock with ForMorning, Joint Collison and Hax Mansen. Check things out starting right around 9 o’clock.

If you’re looking to get down to some good tunes this Thursday then mosey on over to the Brian Boru in the Old Port where Doubting Gravity will be getting the party started right around 9pm. Andi Fawcett and the fellas of Doubting Gravity will be brining you the best original pop rock tunes around, so grab a beer and shake your can this evening.

Mellow your mind, bust some sweet moves, and hula hoop the night away down at The Big Easy in Portland for another fun time with the one and only Band Beyond Description. Far more than just your typical Grateful Dead cover band, these fellas will jam out on everything from the Allman Brothers, Phish, The Band and more. Anticipate good times, good tunes and good people starting right around 9:30.

Of course Thursday night also means that the guys of Vinyl Tap are bringing the thunder to Gritty’s in the Old Port with their delightfully danceable covers that range 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.

Sonny’s in the Old Port welcomes another free set of tasty tuneage in their listening lounge from local roots/Americana favorites, Dark Hollow Bottling Company tonight.  The fellas will be on hand to provide good tunes and good times starting at around 10.
