Are you familiar with the Head and the Heart (above, performing “Rivers and Roads” live on KEXP FM)? They’re a folk-leaning six-piece out of Seattle—Josiah Johnson (vocals, guitar, percussion), Jonathan Russell (vocals, guitar, percussion), Charity Rose Thielen (violin, vocals), Chris Zasche (bass), Kenny Hensley (piano) and Tyler Williams (drums)—and they’ve got an amazing live show. They’ll be here for two sold-out dates in September, at Music Hall of Williamsburg on 9/26 and at The Bowery Ballroom on 9/27. But they’re also playing with some pretty heady company as part of the DMB Caravan on 8/27, huge acts like Dave Matthews Band, Dispatch, moe., Robert Randolph and the Family Band, Josh Ritter & the Royal City Band and others. It’s going to be an amazing three-day festival on South Island Field at Governors Island, and The House List is giving away two tickets to Saturday’s show. Fill out the form below to try to win and include your full name, e-mail address, which show you’re trying to win tickets to (DMB Caravan, 8/27) and a brief message explaining why you deserve to go. The winner will be notified next week.

Tonight in Portland, Maine, music returns when State Theatre Portland has its grand reopening. The 81-year old venue has undergone extensive renovations—to the stage, lighting and sound systems, and seating and bar areas. The place looks great. Although it’s not just about how it looks, but also how it sounds. And what’s a party without some great music? In advance of playing five albums and five shows at Terminal 5 next week, My Morning Jacket plays a sold-out show tonight. That in itself would be a fantastic opening weekend, but in this case it’s just a great start because moe. plays tomorrow night and then on Sunday anyone is welcome to come to an open house. There will be a host of local bands, plus the day will serve as the launch event and membership drive for the nonprofit organization Portland Music Foundation, which aims to educate and inspire musicians and music professionals throughout the Portland area and help the entire local music industry grow and prosper. It’s a happy Friday indeed.
