Wow. I'm still reeling from - and reflecting on - last weekend's "Gentlemen of the Road" Stopover from Mumford & Sons and the 7 other bands who played on Portland's Eastern Promenade. Special shout out to my favorite, St. Vincent!
The entire festival was incredible and is not something that will soon be forgotten.
Now then, all you hardcore Mumford fans, I've got a present for you. I was fortunate enough to have attended the band's special in-store appearance at the Bull Moose Scarborough show on Friday, August 3. Upon exiting the store after the band played, we were all given a REALLY COOL limited edition silk-screened poster commemorating the Mumford visit to Bull Moose. This thing is collectible, artistic and well, it's kinda awesome.
Want it? Send an email to me via firstname.lastname@example.org telling me you want it and I'm gonna pick a name from my cereal bowl on Monday afternoon, August 13. The only catch is that you have to come to the Press Herald office and pick it up. We're on the 5th floor of One City Center in Portland.
Peace, Love and Mumford,
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.
