PORTLAND, Maine — The city of Portland fell in love with the “Be in Love | Playing For Change — Playing For Maine/Maine Academy of Modern Music” video featuring local musicians performing the song “Be In Love” by Portland’s own Dominic Lavoie. With 38,812 viewers still swooning (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KrkWKdkN-CM), the Maine Academy of Modern Music (MAMM) is celebrating love and music by bringing the video to life on Feb. 15, at the Big Easy.
The celebration opens with young love at the All-Ages Show 6-8 p.m. featuring MAMM bands Beware of Pedestrians, Simple Burden, Emergency Sirens and Guilty Bystander. Cost $10.
Things get steamy at the 21+ Show at 9 p.m. featuring musicians from the actual video, including Dominic Lavoie, The Fogcutters, Dave Gutter, Anna Lombard, Jason Stewart, Sara Hallie Richardson, Kyle Gervais, Ryan Zoidis, Emilia Dahlin, Sara Cox, Kenya Hall, Rafael Keilt-Freyre, Amanda Gervasi, Megan Jo Wilson, Chas Lester and Kelly Bryand. Cost $15. Each musician/band will perform a short set and the “Be In Love” video will be recreated live onstage with the full ensemble to close each show. Tickets available at Bull Moose Music.
