Hi, I’m Heather and I’ve got the feels for local music. I’ve been in radio for 11 years, both on-air and behind the scenes. I’ve seen some shit. I could write about all of the genres comprising Maine’s music scene, but let’s face it- we’d be here for one metric ass-ton of time. Instead, consider this my love letter to the hard rock and metal scenes, with some punk rock sprinkled in- have you HEARD Port City Saints?! I feel like there isn’t enough representation of the “scene”, and that doesn’t sit well with me.
The scene in Maine is booming right now. From Kindred in Madawaska, to Chaos Machine in Bangor, Dirty Rotten Winter and Arta’Sin in the Augusta area, Culling The Herd and Re:vision in Lewiston/Auburn, all the way down to greater Portland where you’ll hear Devils Nite Out, Weapons At Hand and Destination:Void , and in Biddeford where you’ll find the powerhouse hard rock band Sygnal To Noise. That’s not even all of ’em, dude. This state isn’t lacking any of the good stuff.
In this blog, you can expect band interviews, pics from shows, info on upcoming shows and where to see them, and so much more! I sounded like a damn radio commercial right there. Can’t really say I feel sorry about it.
Oh, and don’t get on my ass about spelling and punctuation. I’m not a writer. I have a clean record, and I don’t need the friggin grammar police on my tail. I’ll also use colorful language because it pleases me. Plus, I can’t swear on the air. This makes up for it.
