Hey CYY peeps! The first Rave N Rage of the year is rock heavy - tailor made for all you alt rock fans out there. Check it out!


Keelan Donovan: Home For the Holidays-Ish w/ Sons of Alfond
Portland House of Music (Portland)
8:00pm Doors / 9:00pm Show
$15 Advance / $20 Day of Show
- Singer-Songwriter Keelan Donovan has been pumping out great songs for a long time - so good, in fact, that he moved to Nashville to make a career out of it. He's back in town this weekend, and performing compositions new and old. Catch him before he's selling out bigger rooms!


Tim Mercer Full Band Acoustic Show
St Lawrence Center for the Arts (Portland)
7:00pm Show
$12 Advance / $15 Day of Show
All Ages
- Tim Mercer has been a strong force in the local rock scene for a while now, and with good reason: he writes great songs, and injects them with the bold attitude mainstream rock has been missing for a while. Check this show out to see a rare glimpse of his more sensitive side.

Sparks the Rescue
The Brunswick (Old Orchard Beach)
8:30pm Show
- Sparks the Rescue's blend of pop-punk and hardcore influences have taken them all kinds of places - Europe, Warped Tour, you name it! They're on full display this weekend at The Brunswick, where we can all get close enough to high-five Alex Roy on stage. Anyone else miss him hanging off the piping on the ceiling when The Station was still around?

Drivetrain, Cruel Miracle, Cryptid
Geno’s Rock Club (Portland)
8:30pm Doors / 9:00pm Show
$7 Tickets
- Geared more towards the hard rock fans, this show is headlined by the phenomenal Drivetrain. Their new record, Muscles Big, encompasses both hard rock, and 80s, pre-skinny-jean hardcore at their best. Check it out if you're down to mosh! Though, I can't recommend it fully, as Geno's has stairs leading down to the stage.
