I’m so excited. Yes, like Pointer Sisters excited. Like 50 shades of excited. Like excited excited. Why?
Because I am FINALLY going to see the indie-folk duo Arborea live! And you should too.
They’ll be performing at the Portland Museum of Art at 5 p.m. On Thursday (Jan. 15).
The show is included in museum admission and is free for members. You’re encouraged to stick around after the music’s over and artify yourself. It is a museum after all. There’s art. Lots of it.
I’ve loved – and have written about- Arborea (Buck and Shanti Curran) for many years despite the fact that we’ve never met in person. They’re based in Lewiston and don’t get down to Portland all that often but that’s no excuse. I’m lame for not having made a proper effort t see them live.
That’s all gonna change and I can’t wait!
Here’s a few Arborea clips for your aural and visual pleasure. Listen and look to understand why I’m beside myself with immense joy about FINALLY being in the same room with this incredible, compelling duo.
See you there!
