Stopping by KahBang on a summer evening

From the audience
With year two now in the books, it's safe to say that standout sets by artists on the rise are what could truly set the annual KahBang music festival apart from similar gatherings throughout New England.

Stars, bars, and open arms

Flags + Guns Dept.
The first thing I noticed when pulling into the Preble Street parking lot on Back Cove for last Sunday’s open-carry firearm event, which had been organized to encourage Mainers to legally wear their guns in public, was the Confederate flag.

Review: Theodore Treehouse at Slainte Wine Bar Mardi Gras

Music Seen
A few weeks back, Theodore Treehouse made a brief appearance in this spot, lending the band the quote that now appears on their MySpace page: "Even the bike punks couldn't resist bopping their heads."

Review: AC + PanzerBastard + AoK Suicide Forest

Music Seen: AC + PanzerBastard + AoK Suicide Forest, live at Geno's, January 15
AoK Suicide Forest, featuring Michael Anderson (Loverless, Johnny Cremains), David Joy (Sunrunner) and Leif Sherman Curtis (Moneycastasia, ex-Conifer), have only been around since last summer and have quickly honed their blend of '70s proto-metal, psychedelia, and Japanese noise rock to a razor-sharp edge through relentless gigging.

Music seen: Pixies vs. Sonic Youth at Empire

Sublime musical match-ups
The Clash of the Titans has become a Portland staple over the last three years. Since shifting from the Big Easy to the Empire this year, the Tuesday tradition has lost none of its crowd-pulling potential.

Review: Buckethead, Wolff at Asylum

Buckethead and Wolf, live at Asylum on May 27, 2009
Little is known about the masked maniac called Buckethead. According to his mythology, he was raised in a chicken coop next door to a drive-in theater, and the bucket he wears on his head contains cursed chicken bones that give him his supernatural guitar-shredding powers.

Music Seen: Ocean and Pontiak

Ocean and Pontiak at SPACE Gallery, May 5
The day after Ocean's predictably under-attended (30-40 people) Cinco de Mayo performance at SPACE, a friend who also attended asked what I thought. "So loud," I said. "So slow," he responded. It wasn't hard to catch the reverence in both reactions.

Clubber Lang, Antiseptic + Batshelter at Geno's, April 10
Ah, Batshelter. What exactly are they? Punk, metal, a little of both, or something far more complex? Whichever, they've developed quite the following in the past few months.
