GYPSY TAILWIND have set a hard date for the release of their third full-length, Decades and Days, which will be the first with new gal singer AMANDA GERVASI. The show is June 26 at Port City Music Hall.

Congratulations to LOW-FLYING AIRPLANES, winners of this year’s ROCK OFF, put on in great fashion by the MAINE ACADEMY OF MODERN MUSIC. Beating out five other bands in a competition at the Port City Music Hall this past Saturday, they played a nice mix of Dave Matthews-style jam and Brit-invasion rock, with some interesting spoken-word and great arrangements that included keyboards, harmonica, and mandolin. Well done by the Yarmouth quartet. Other highlights: the MOUSAM RIVER RAMBLERS nearly stealing the show with a four-piece bluegrass set; TONY MCNABOE beeping out the F-bombs with his vocal mic behind the drums as DAVE GUTTER and PARANOID SOCIAL CLUB sang “Wasted” for the all-ages crowd while the judges were tabulating votes; 14-year-old twins Kristen (guitar/vocals) and Katherine Veayo (drums), along with frontgal Danielle Pease (15), outnumbering the boys in their five-piece pop act FYVE.

PETE MILLER is set to drop his debut EP, Shake the Dawn, with a May 21 show at One Longfellow Square.
