Arbuckle shakes things up at Time Out

Dustin Arbuckle & The Damnations

Rockland — The weekly Monday Night Blues series continues Oct. 15 with Dustin Arbuckle & The Damnations. The band will play a 7 to 10 p.m. show in the upstairs music room of Time Out Pub, 275 Main St. Admission is $15 at the door.

Midcoast blues fans will remember Dustin Arbuckle as a founding member of Moreland and Arbuckle, the critically acclaimed progressive roots outfit that spent 15 years on the road and produced seven album. The duo has gone amicably their separate ways, and vocalist/harmonica player Arbuckle is ready to explore a wide range of music with his new project, Dustin Arbuckle & The Damnations.

The Kansas native has long held an appreciation for traditional American music in the vein of Charley Patton, as well as the cross-pollinated sounds of The Band or Stax-style soul. An astute devotee of the blues by the time he was a teen, Arbuckle also opened his mind to the Allman Brothers Band, Johnny Cash, Sam & Dave and Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers.

“I hope you’ll hear some of that reach with The Damnations,” he said. “This is a time to shake things up a bit and see what comes out.”

Doors open an hour before show time. Next up in the weekly series are: Oct. 22, Memphis Lightning ($10); Oct. 29, Professor Louie & The Crowmatix ($15); and Nov. 5, Erin Harpe & The Delta Swingers ($10). For more information, visit northatlanticbluesfestival.com and click on the Time Out Blues link; visit the Monday Night Blues Facebook page; call 593-9336; or email bluesman@midcoast.com.
