I know, I know, it's all about Facebook, Twitter and the interwebs as a whole. But sometimes an old-fashioned old-school flyer is just the thing to spin my spurs; especially when it's snappy, creative or fun. Of if the show sounds particularly awesome.
Consider this to be the first of several future posts of flyers and posters that catch my wandering eye when I take to the streets of Portland.
The bar is starting off awfully high with this one featuring a record-loving bleach blonde leggy dish from nineteen fifty something. Nicely done, Flask Lounge.
Here's what you need to know about Flask's Monday, March 26th offering:
Pop-punk by the Haddonfields from Missouri
Portland style rock and roll by The Kurt Baker Band
Rock, power pop and garage by Portsmouth's The Connection and
Portland''s Volcano Rabbit with their - and I quote - "post-pretentious -indie-electro-folk-punk-rock"
IF U GO:
WHEN: 7 p.m. on Monday, March 26th
WHERE: Flask Lounge, 117 Spring St in Portland
HOW MUCH: FREE! Just be at least 21
Aimsel Ponti has been obsessed with - and inspired by- music since she listened to Monkees records borrowed from the town library when she was six years old. She's a huge fan of the local music scene and interviews an act every week for "Making Noise" which runs in the Press Herald GO section. You'll also find her out and about absorbing live music like a sponge and roaming around local record shops and flea markets.
