    Live music every Thursday, hosted by Ernest Whaley, from 7p-9p. The Central Hotel has opened up its back room, which includes a stage and lights too, to local Portland Community-builder Ernest, whom I originally met and got to know through Artichoke Music and a mystical Portland Folk Music location known as The Doverlaff. Ernest netted a couple of Live @ Weagle slots from me over 2014, and has since started up his own thang. So check it out! This will be my second time, and I had a lot of fun the first time with the other people Ernest booked, Dan Dover & Daniel Cecil. On March 5th, the other acts are TBD. I will let you know. And if I forget to post it, remind me to! Come on...!
