Portland Noise is an online community resource for musicians, audiences, and venues. The project’s goal is to support the local live music scene by being a consolidated source for all live music events in Portland, highlighting Maine-based artists, and, in turn, strengthening the live music scene by mapping out the soundscape of the city on any given night. Portland Noise promotes all shows equally: big or small, DIY or legit, free or ticketed, and is committed to giving equal exposure and attention to both new bands playing their first show and established groups on tour.
Portland Noise is no one, it is for the community. Putting an individual or figure as the one responsible for this project diverts attention from the “mission”: getting people out to see live music and highlighting the local music scene.
