Monday, September 2

The funk and soul band Model Airplane has been keeping the vibes alive on Monday nights at The Big Easy (55 Market St., Portland) for many weeks now, but are preparing for takeoff with a sendoff show on Sept. 6. If you can’t make that, catch ’em tonight at 10 p.m. or forever wait at the gate. Tix: $5 (21+). 775-2266. bigeasyportland.com.
