OK People, listen up and check out this awesomeness!
The Maine Academy of Modern Music (MAMM) maineacademyofmodernmusic.org, a mile long list of local musicians, mixers, engineers, producers and the like have collaborated with local filmmakers to produce a video representing music right here in Portland. It's all in the name of celebrating Playing For Change Day, an annual event hosted by the Playing for Change Foundation (PFCF) playingforchange.org
The chosen song is the wonderfully perfect "Be In Love," by Portland's Dominic and The Lucid.
All ages are welcome to ASYLUM (121 Center St., Portland) on Saturday (September 22) for the debut of this incredible video. The party starts at 5 p.m. and the cover charge is $5. A portion of this goes to MAMM and PFCF.
Here is the official trailer/teaser for the video just to wet your whistle. youtube.com/watchI for one can't wait to see the whole thing. Hats off to everyone involved in this absolutely fantastic and inspiring endeavor.
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.
