Conclave

The State Theatre is excited to announce CONCLAVE – a new live-streaming concert series from the stage of the empty State Theatre that kicks off with a huge double-header on June 5 with the Rustic Overtones and June 6 with The Ghost of Paul Revere. The series – presented by Sierra Nevada Brewing Company, Fire on Fore, birdtheory., Eminence Arts, Ocean Sound & Lighting and the State Theatre – will take place every Friday thereafter through July 17 with other incredible artists including Murcielago, The Mallett Brothers Band, Bell Systems, Just Plain Jones, Angelikah and The Ballroom Thieves.

Conclave will be a continuing series of multi-camera, pro audio, live streamed concerts filmed from the empty State Theatre straight to your device. All streams will be FREE and viewable via Facebook Live from the State Theatre’s Facebook page. Fans are encouraged to donate to each band via a donation link that will be posted in the stream of each concert. All concerts will start at 8pm.

It’s time to get back to live (in the comfort of your own home!)

The State Theatre and its partners are presenting the livestream series in compliance with the State of Maine’s mass gathering restrictions and following suggested safety guidelines so that our employees and bands will be in the safest environment as possible. Only band members and the minimal production team needed will be allowed in the venue. All production and camera operators are required to wear masks and maintain a minimum physical distance of 6-feet from each other. No one is allowed to touch the band’s stuff except the band! All high-touch surfaces and any shared surfaces (stage, etc) will be sanitized and disinfected before and after each concert. We are all in this together and the safety of our staff, artists, patrons and friends (like you!) has and always will be our top priority.

Bell Systems

Bell Systems is a new collaboration between Geneviève Beaudoin (Dead Gowns) and Spencer Albee (As Fast As, Rustic Overtones). Both vintage and modern in constitution, Bell Systems makes thoughtfully irreverent pop music. They released an EP, ‘Three songs to dance to.” in late December 2019, with a full length to follow in Spring of 2020. They made their live show debut opening two sold-out shows for the Ghost of Paul Revere on Dec 28 at Portsmouth, NH’s Press Room and on New Years’ Eve at Portland, ME’s State Theatre.
