Micodin & Dynamo-P showcase new music at Rap Night at The Asylum

We’re doing it to it slow and steady this week as we make our way into Wednesday evening. Per usual there’s a bunch of awesome shows happening all around tonight, so get out there and hurdle the hump — let’s go!

Jazz up your Wednesday with a free show down at Gingko Blue on Fore Street in the Old Port as the Jason St. Pierre Trio will roll through four decades worth of jazz and pop standards starting at 7 o’clock.

Just a few paces down the street at Bull Feeney’s you can check out another fun evening of folk tunes courtesy of local duo the Squid Jiggers. These fellas will be creating sounds that pair perfectly with an ice cold pint of beer, so swing on by and check them out starting at 8 o’clock.

Guitarist Dave Jacquet of local acoustic duo, Uke n’ Smile will hosting yet another free open mic at Cole Farms in Gray tonight. Beginning at 7:30 all musicians are welcome to join in on the fun and jam on stage with Dave and friends, so grab your acoustic guitar and let the creativity energy flow!

Local siren Andi Fawcett goes solo and acoustic tonight for a free performance at Profenno’s in Westbrook. Usually you can catch Andi fronting such acts as Doubting Gravity and Sly-Chi, but tonight she strips her songs down for fun, intimate show that gets underway around 8 this Wednesday evening. 

If you’re looking for some open mic action north of Portland tonight, check out a free and fun event taking place down at the Irish Twins Pub in Lewiston where local singer-songwriter Matt Fournier will be holding things down for any and all musicians who want to take to the stage and perform some jams tonight. Grab your ax and some friends and make it down to Irish Twins Pub for 8 o’clock this evening.

Frontier in Brunswick is hosting another free show during their Live in the Lounge music series, which gets underway right around 8 this evening. Tonight you can check out jazz composer/guitarist Richard Nelson who brings together some creative musicians for imaginative interpretations of jazz classics with his band The Richard Nelson Imaginary Ensemble.

One of your last chances to enjoy some live, local open mic goodness down at Slainte Wine Bar & Lounge — they’re closing their doors on April 26th 🙁 — on Preble Street happens this evening as singer-songwriter Nick Poulin hosts this free event that gets started at 8 tonight. 

Rap Night at The Asylum pops off with a proper party in anticipation of Micodin and Dynamo-P’s forthcoming release “Serious Problems”. The duo will be taking to stage to showcase a bunch of new material to prepare your earholes in readiness for when the album drops. God.Damn.Chan will get things started as well as open and late night open mice with your hosts Ill By Instinct and El Shupacabra. It’s been a minute since Micodin’s been in Maine since his move to Jersey, so be sure to show up and spread some love tonight as things get underway right around 9.

Two critically acclaimed 00s indie rock groups will be properly represented by a handful of local talent at this week’s Clash of the Titans upstairs at the Empire on Congress Street. Starting at 9:30 enjoy some cheap beers and blistering lyrics about your post-adolescent lack of achievements! Sounds swell, right? Then be sure to check it out!
