I love live music. Ever since I got here to Maine, I've been saying that I can't wait to catch a live show.

Unfortunately, because I've been so busy getting settled in, I've only been to two: The Portland Lights Music Festival at the Maine State Pier, and I saw Andy Grammer at L.L. Bean in Freeport last week. Even though those were both really good shows, I know that I've only just gotten started.

There are so many great venues here in Maine, with a diverse list of acts coming in the next few months. There are definitely a few on this list that I'm planning on attending...what about you?
