Music: KahBang Festival Leaving Bangor For Portland - Portland Accepts With Open Arms

kahbang portland

07/17/14 - The rumors have just been confirmed. Due to slow pre-sales and some budget constraints, the KahBang festival has decided to move to Portland, Maine. CEO, Josh Gass, says there were a variety of factors which led him to make the decision, but ultimately it was the City of Bangor's decision not to allow camping on the waterfront that finally pushed him to make the move.

So much for KahBang in Bangor becoming like SXSW in Austin. Looks like Portland is going to reap those rewards now...

Music: The Other Bones Premiere "Damage"

04/14/14 -

Buy The Other Bones' latest album. Bands sound different in Maine.

Portland, specifically, has been collecting New England's slightly off-centered musicians. A mini-metropolis surrounded by wilderness, the city incubates a music scene informed by the proximity of the (modest) urban to the (extreme) rural.

The Other Bones is a female-fronted electronic pop/R&B trio formed in 2011. Blending powerful vocals with cutting guitars and smooth electronic elements, they create a sound described by one reviewer as "their particular stamp of retro-futurist complexity.”

The band began in a Somerville, Massachusetts apartment where vocalist Loretta Allen and producer/multi-instrumentalist Andrew Mead spent weekends recording demos. "It was all over the place," says Allen, who met Mead on a camping trip before their freshman year at Tufts University. "We recorded a full country version of a Killers song one night and spent the next night making tape loops... Unfocused, yeah, but formative." Following graduation, Mead moved to his home state of Maine and rented a practice space behind a local train station. Allen followed a year later.

As Mead notes, "We started from scratch. I had an MPC 1000 with two dead pads and a Moog Soft Synth on my iPad. Loretta had a microphone and a guitar loop pedal we 'inherited' from a friend. We were playing into a 50-watt PA my high school band had used. It was unpolished and invigorating."

After several weeks of writing and playing, the pair connected with Eric Bruce, who had grown up playing guitar and touring nationally with bands in New Jersey's rock 'n' roll scene. "We were playing the track that would become 'Feels Like Home' and Eric immediately started playing his chorus hook. It shouldn't have worked, but something clicked. We knew we'd have to start dealing with not knowing what to say when people asked what kind of music we play," says Allen.

In 2012, the band released their debut EP, "Hinges": a collection of electro-inspired pop tracks that told the story of the year Allen spent in Boston before joining Mead in Maine. The record peaked at #8 on the iTunes Top 10 Electronic Chart and led to a series of shows along the east coast.

"After 'Hinges,' we learned how to be a live band," says Bruce. "That record captured our creative momentum, and the next year was about slowing down and figuring out how to put on a seamless show and communicate effectively as musicians and as individuals."

Having won the Portland Phoenix Music Awards of "Best New Artist" and "Best Pop/Rock Act", and recently nominated "Best in Maine" for the New England Music Awards, the band is now deep into writing and recording their first full length record. As Mead comments, "The music is in some ways simplified and in others more fully-realized. It's our profession of love to R&B from the electronic world."

Music: BOSTON “Heaven on Earth Tour” with Special Guest CHEAP TRICK Coming To Bangor, Maine

boston maine

03/20/14 - Bangor, ME -- Following the successful release of their latest album, "Life, Love & Hope", T om Scholz' band BOSTON along with Special Guest CHEAP TRICK will embark on the highly anticipated “Heaven On Earth” summer tour this June, making a stop in Bangor, Maine at the Darling’s Waterfront Pavilion on July, 2nd as part of the Machias Savings Bank Concert Series. Tickets will go on sale to the general public this Friday, March 21st at 10:00am. Tickets are available via waterfrontconcerts.com and all Ticketmaster Outlets.

Always a huge crowd pleaser with their high-energy stage show, out-of-this-world sound, and remarkable musicianship and singing, BOSTON will feature the personnel and music from their highly acclaimed 2012 tour with some exciting additions. The band prides itself on performing a totally live show without the use of prerecorded music or technical enhancements, delivering the exceptional sound that is faithful to their studio recordings.

BOSTON burst onto the music scene with their eponymous best-selling debut album in 1976, and never looked back. With over 17 million copies sold, Boston generated hits such as "More Than a Feeling," "Peace of Mind," and "Smokin'," rock staples that are still in heavy rotation today. Their second effort, Don't Look Back was another chart-topper that confirmed their place in rock history, followed by Third Stage, which hit #1 on the charts, with the top single of 1986, "Amanda." With over 31 million albums sold to date, their music has stood the test of time, as evidenced by live BOSTON audiences that span generations.

Last December, BOSTON released their newest studio album, Life, Love & Hope on Frontiers Records. More than a decade in the making, Life, Love & Hope features 11 tracks embodying the classic and beloved BOSTON sound, as well as the latest in the evolution of Tom Scholz' musical artistry. Diverse yet cohesive, this long-awaited album has something for everyone and will fulfill the expectations of its long time fans, while exposing a new generation to one of rock 'n' roll’s great acts.

CHEAP TRICK may be one of the most covered bands of all time. Since the 70s they’ve been blending elements of pop, punk and even metal in a way that is instantly catchy and recognizable. With timeless classics such as “I Want You to Want Me,” “Surrender,” and “The Flame,” CHEAP TRICK are a musical institution. Anyone familiar with Comedy Central’s The Colbert Report will note that CHEAP TRICK wrote and performed the theme song.

With more than 5,000 performances, 20 million records sold, 29 movie soundtracks and 40 gold and platinum recording awards, the band was honored in October 2007 by the Chicago Chapter of NARAS (National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences) for their contributions to the music industry. CHEAP TRICK were featured in the John Varvatos Spring 2008 ad campaign.

The band has most recently performed their Dream Police album in its entirety along with an orchestra in select cities across the US. This innovative show also includes many other songs from the band’s extensive catalog, garnering them critical acclaim after performances in venues such as the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles.

Their most current release, The Latest, (released on CD, vinyl and 8-track) has garnered glowing reviews worldwide and continues Cheap Trick’s reign as power-pop progenitors as they continue their legacy of over 35 years in the music industry.

General Public ticket sale begins FRIDAY, MARCH 21st AT 10:00AM

Tickets prices range from $21.75 to $81.75 Reserved Seating & General Admission - PLUS ANY APPLICABLE FEES DEPENDING ON PURCHASE OUTLET - Tickets available via waterfrontconcerts.com, all Ticketmaster outlets, charge-by-phone at 1-800-745-3000 or locally at Mark’s Music in Brewer.
