Rockland — The Monday Night Blues series continues Sept. 25 with Lindsay Weaver & The 24th Street Wailers, playing a 7 p.m. show in the upstairs music room of Time Out Pub, 275 Main St. Admission will be $10 at the door.

Singer, drummer, songwriter and bandleader Lindsay Beaver is a musical force. Originally from Halifax, Nova Scotia, Beaver has been leading her Juno nominated band across North America and Europe for the past several years playing a distinctive blend of rock ‘n’ roll, soul, punk and blues. Her limitless voice and ferocious standing-drumming have become known across festivals, theaters and clubs from the Arctic Ocean to the Gulf of Mexico.

The equally impressive rest of The 24th St. Wailers currently includes Michael Archer on upright and electric bass; and Marc Doucet and Josh Fulero on guitars. Their unforgettable live performances draw upon a deep well of influences that range from Little Richard to The Ramones; and from Howlin’ Wolf to Iggy Pop.

Next up in the weekly series are: Oct. 2, Slam Allen Band ($15); Oct. 9, Angela Easley Band ($10); Oct. 16, Eliza Neals Band ($15). For more information, visit northatlanticbluesfestival.com and click on the Time Out Blues link; call 596-6055 or email bluesman@midcoast.com.
