Johnny Fountain's Farewell Show

Johnny Fountain is leaving Portland for the winter to trek out to California, explore the open road, and trace the roots of Colonel Albert Jennings Fountain. But he will entertain the crowds of Portland for one final night before his return this summer.

So, come down to the EMPIRE Dine & Dance from 6 to 10 pm tonight for an open mic event hosted by the legend himself. Johnny and his friends (possibly including Waisely Lighthead and Minnie Pistola of the Panda Bandits) will play for your enjoyment- all free of charge! Bring your guitar, rattle, or mandolin and join the fun!

[dog] and [pony] win best music video award for Lady Lamb the Beekeeper

Our friends over at [dog] and [pony] took home an award last week for best music video at the Portland Phoenix Short Film Fest. Their video featured Lady Lamb the Beekeeper performing "Comet Flies Over the Underbelly" live at the Tower of Song Festival.

Check out an article about the award-winning video here. And then watch it over at the [dog] and [pony] site.

Want a free Lady Lamb the Beekeeper Live Track?

You can download (for free!) an epic 10-minute live take on Lady Lamb the Beekeeper's "The Nothing". The song is best known as the rap sandwiched in the middle of the drum-heavy "Pennylicks", but here it is stripped down to a banjo-driven ballad.

All you need to do to get your hands on this download is to take this Eternal Otter Records' Customer Survey. The whole thing takes less than a minute!

Lady Lamb the Beekeeper LIVE @ SPACE

Lady Lamb the Beekeeper will be headlining tonight at Space. It has been awhile since she has treated Portland to a live performance, so you should go see what new tricks she has up her sleeve. She will also be joined by the Mumlers, who have the trusted guarantee of rocking according to our friends over at the Pine Haven Collective. Should be a great night of music!

Tower of Song also continues this Friday at its new location across the street (aka the Building of Song). Head down to Congress Square during the Art Walk to hear music from Johnny Fountain, Lady Lamb the Beekeepeer.... and Portland Legend, Moses Atwood! Moses has been in Asheville for the last couple of years, but now he is back in Maine and we are extremely excited to be hosting his homecoming!
