Showmen’s Rest & Gina Alibrio @ Port City Blue
Dec 2 @ 9:00 pm – 11:00 pm
Showmen’s Rest & Gina Alibrio @ Port City Blue | Portland | Maine | United States
Showmen’s Rest is a new group organized around songs that have sprung forth from the mind of Jimmy Dority. He has planted these songs in a community garden that is also tended by Mike Effenberger, Nick Phaneuf, and Mike Walsh. Together they prune, weed, and crossbreed until the songs reach their greatest yield. The music is meant to nourish the artist and the audience alike, drawing on a wide range of influences to create songs that the listener can take a casual stroll through while always still encountering something pleasingly unexpected. For fans of: Father John Misty, Wilco, Tame Impala, Talking Heads.
Gina Alibrio is a singer/songwriter and session vocalist hailing from Portland, Maine.  She is most known for fronting Portland’s most popular musical weekly residency, The Red Eye Flight Crew. The nine-piece funk supergroup features members of Rustic Overtones, Jaw Gems, Sister Sparrow & the Dirty Birds and Model Airplane.
Alibrio’s first full-length solo record, “Atlas” is due to be released in early 2022.

Fat Knuckle Freddy CD RELEASE! @ Port City Blue
Dec 3 @ 8:00 pm – 9:30 pm
Fat Knuckle Freddy CD RELEASE! @ Port City Blue | Portland | Maine | United States
VYING FOR THE SOUL is being released on Not Yet Remembered Records on 12/3/21. FKF will be having a Album Release show at Blue. This is what NYR has to say….
Will and I are very excited to bring you our next release, ‘Vying for the Soul’ by Fat Knuckle Freddy.
Versed in modern classical composition, American Primitive guitar and hybrid punk/blues, FKF (@fatknucklefreddy) has put together an album of haunting, subdued, guitar/synth tunes to help ring in the colder months of the year… soundscapes for the season. This album follows a slightly more abstract record (Diabolus Ambientium) composed using a 72-tone scale and another (Corruption, Deceit, Murder) that was dead ahead American Primitive.
The genre-melding tracks on this particular record leach soul, pensive emotion and conjure images of walking through a town or cemetery during the cold fog of dawn. We think this record will appeal to ambient and classical guitar fans alike and we hope you’ll enjoy.
– Ben @ NYR
You can Pre-Order the album on Bandcamp.

Maia Sharp & Catie Curtis @ One Longfellow Square | Portland | Maine | United States

Maia Sharp returns with Mercy Rising, her boldest, most confessional offering to date. After living in the Los Angeles metro area for most of her life, Maia moved to Nashville at the beginning of 2019, partly to be in an unapologetically songwriter centric town and partly as a personal life reboot. She reflects, “In the last 2 years, just about everything that could have changed has changed and it feels now like those long walks outside of all of my comfort zones were heading toward this album.”  

Maia has always managed to play all sides of the songwriting field.  She has had her songs recorded by Bonnie Raitt, The Chicks, Trisha Yearwood, Keb’ Mo’, Cher, Edwin McCain, Terri Clark, David Wilcox, Art Garfunkel, Lizz Wright, Paul Carrack, Lisa Loeb and more. She produced Edwin McCain’s album Mercy Bound (429 Records) and two songs for Art Garfunkel’s retrospective double album The Singer (Sony).  And through it all, Maia has continued to record her own albums.  She has eight solo releases (on Ark 21, Concord, KOCH, eOne, Blix Street and Crooked Crown respectively), a collaborative project with Art Garfunkel and Buddy Mondlock Everything Waits to be Noticed (EMI Manhattan) and a duo project called Roscoe & Etta with writing/production partner Anna Schulze.  Each release has led to extensive touring throughout the US and UK and appearances on Mountain Stage, Acoustic Cafe, World Cafe, NPR’s “All Things Considered,” CBS Early Morning and the Today Show to name a few. Maia is also an adjunct professor at NYU for the Summer Songwriter Workshop and she has been writing for Songwriting with Soldiers since 2017 where active duty service members, veterans and/or their family members are paired with professional songwriters to share their experience and turn it into a song.

Her new album, Mercy Rising, is out now to critical acclaim and features co-writes and guest appearances by Mindy Smith, Gabe Dixon, Noah Guthrie and P.J. Pacifico.
