The Big Easy is one of the best places to catch live music in Portland Maine. In addition to having a very friendly staff and a terrific owner this location boasts a comfortable atmosphere and great drink specials every day. You can catch a different genre of music almost every evening at The Big Easy and every Wednesday night is Rap Night! The Big Easy is currently considered the "home of Maine Hip Hop" and the two guys who help run Rap Night every Wednesday (Nate Shupe & Jesse Wagner) do a great job showcasing both local and national hip hop acts when available. In addition to live hip hop on you can always catch the now world famous "open mic" every Wednesday night at midnight. The open mic format varies, sometimes it's a DJ blending beats, sometimes it's a live band, and other times it's a producer on a beat machine but what doesn't change is the long line of MC's that show up to display their skills and build with each other every Wednesday night. Portland would be a mess without the Big Easy, thank you!
