Gag Me with a Spoon
A whimsical group of classically trained musicians obsessed with 80s girl bands, "gag me" is the brainchild of vocalists Laynie Calderwood and Megan Poulos. These magnificent ladies are fresh off of starring in an off off off broadway run of "Anything Goes." Supported by the multi-talented, multi-instrumental Adam Tuch (guitar and keys) and rockers extraordinaire Jacob Marschall (drums) and David Chain bass), "gag me" snagged first place in this years Schreiber battle of the bands. Due to artistic differences (grandmas birthday) David will not be joining the band at Portfest, however, they we lucky to lure guest bassist, Noah Milstein away from his many projects for this amazing show. Be on the lookout for surprise guest artists! Join us on the main stage for a "totally, like, awesome" show.
