Here’s Your Listing: The Roll Call Of October

By Liam Woodworth-Cook

Portland is a happening spot for music. Here we’ll go through the rundown of some of the bigger names passing through town. As always, music can be found in some capacity every night in Portland. There’s open mics Monday through Thursday, and several clubs/bars are frequently rocking and rolling. Be sure to check The Portland Phoenix for a full listing of all upcoming shows. Of course you can also go online to the venue’s website for listings as well. The jazz club Blue, located on Congress Street, has music every night (excluding Mondays). Bull Feeney’s gets packed on the weekend for rock-and-roll cover bands, and hosts an open mic every Tuesday. Gritty McDuff’s also hosts local acts throughout the week and weekend. And seeing how most of us are college students, I’ll mention the infamous Amigo’s. A college dive (with pool tables and cheap drinks) guaranteed for sloppiness, Amigo’s has outdoor music every weekend. Here’s a brief listing for upcoming shows at the big name venues.
