For something like half a decade, this group of Portland musicians has come together at Mardi Gras, heating up the cold Maine winter, just before lent. Formed from a dozen or so local bands like Sly Chi, Model Airplane, The Fogcutters and Micromasse, they represent the best players in Maine. They cover a wide range of Crescent […]
