ABOUT

Born and raised in Warsaw, Poland, ARTHUR ALEXANDER grabbed his guitar and headed for America where he joined a band called THE POPPEES who took up residence at CBGB's in NYC, heading up the Power Pop Division of the then-just-emerging New Wave/Punk Rock music scene. The Poppees released two critically acclaimed singles on Bomp! Records, but soon after Arthur founded a band called SORROWS. Before they could even get a bass player, a demo tape caught the interest of CBS Records who signed Sorrows, and two albums followed: “Teenage Heartbreak” and “Love Too Late”, plus several singles - all receiving a string of rave write-ups, as well as "pick hit" nominations from Billboard, Cash Box and others music trades. In 2010, Sorrows saw a re-emergence of their music with a Bomp! Records release “Bad Times, Good Times” leading to more tours and playing to enthusiastic audiences throughout the East and West Coasts. The band now, now simply named The Arthur Alexander Band, is currently working on their next album, expected out in time for this exciting debut show here at BLUE PORTLAND MAINE on Thursday, September 19, 2024. https://arthuralexander.bandcamp.com/album/one-bar-left

Also on board are fave local mavens TIGER BOMB whose 3rd LP is also expected to be dropped later this year! Tiger Bomb will fill the dance floor with their high energy "tuff-bubblegum" sounds. These four fab femmes rock hard, but make no mistake, Tiger Bomb knows their way around a good pop song full of catchy hooks & harmonies. Their all-original songs have a deep rich filling, coated with powerful guitars, melodic bass lines and driving drums, for a tasty thrill-packed dancing & listening experience with some of the most playable sounds around today! "The Rock & Roll veterans of garage-pop band Tiger Bomb are the coolest female rockers here in Portland, featuring a big, bold and British sound, like the Who. With a retro visual aesthetic, Tiger Bomb is a true gem of our scene, regularly performing across New England." -WMPG https://www.facebook.com/tigerbombband https://www.youtube.com/@tigerbomb2640 https://tigerbomb2.bandcamp.com

Kicking this party off - all the way from Los Angeles California comes THE GLIMMER STARS! "All rock & roll was meant to be fun, pure and simple, that's the bottomline", says vocalist/bassist Mini Mendez, in describing the vibe of The Glimmer Stars. Mendez, along with Steven Soto (guitar) & Richie Mendez (drums), have been writing & gigging for many years and seem to be showing no signs of slowing down. After landing on a couple of cool compilations (Not Lame, Radio Beat), the band released their self-titled debut LP in 2005. Two more full-lengths, several EPs, and a handful of singles, currently make up the remainder of the Glimmer Stars credit list. https://theglimmerstars.bandcamp.com/ https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=glimmer+stars
