    Default Clash of the Titans-Portland, ME

    I am not trying to start anything, so PLEASE do not turn this into the usual. Just an FYI for anyone (if there is anyone) in the Portland, Maine area. Empire Dine and Dance is having a Clash of the Titans tonight at 9 PM - Van Halen vs Van Hagar. Local bands get up and play the songs of each era. I'll be there...

    You live in Portland, ME? Beautiful part of the world you have there. I visited your fine city about 4 years ago. I had a great time and really enjoyed those crustaceans you catch out of the ocean. What are they called again? Delicious, is all I can say.

    Yea, I live in Portland. I've been here for about 9 years. Came up from Philly for a woman...fortunately I married her and am still with her. The summers are the reason to be here...the winter, not so much. But yes, the lobsters in Maine are unlike lobsters from anywhere else. I think it has to do with the artic waters mixing with warmer waters in the gulf of Maine. The worst part of Portland is we have a lousy arena, so if I want to catch a good show I have to go down to Boston (only 1 hr 1/2 or so away).

    so it's like a running theme the bar uses? That's pretty cool. I like that. Do they have just one band that represents each group? Are they tribute bands?

    In the past its been both a variety of bands that get up or one band per group. Some have been tribute bands, others are rock bands that play all covers. I'm not sure how this one will go. There are a few decent VH (both era) cover bands in the Northern NE area. Hey, its reason to go out on a tuesday night. Something I haven't done in a long time.

    This is not a qualitative judgment on which era is better, but I would think it would be easier to get together a set of VHI songs to cover than a set of VHII songs. RWTD, ATBL, Panama, etc. from a performance standpoint would be easier for a cover band to get a hold of than finding someone who can sing in Sammy's range.

    Again, not saying it's any better, just saying more difficult for a cover band to pull off.

    I hope any of the bands have the good sense not to play all the worn out hits from both eras.

    Sounds cool.

    Good for you. Nothing like a Maine lobster, except maybe three, and a couple dozen of steamers on the side. I almost drove back up there for a Gov't Mule show a couple of years ago but chose not to given the distance. I live in upstate, NY so it would have been a longgg road trip. I'm reading about how cheap lobster is right now. Makes we want to drive up there and buy a couple of dozen from one of the road side shacks near the ocean. Yummy!!!

    Yea, real cheap right now. Makes me feel bad for the lobstermen(and women) who go out at 3-4am spend all day and net ($$) close to nothing, but it is a LONG trip from NY. On a personal note, nothing beats steamers, not even lobster.
