    5 things to do this weekend, 9.25.08

    1. Check out the Eric Green Party in a really big show at the Bangor Opera House on Friday. Green and his down n' dirty swamp-tastic blues rock band will play at 7:30 p.m. Admission is $10, and you get the added bonus of seeing the band play on the set for the Penobscot Theatre's production of "On Golden Pond." Blues rock at an old fashioned Maine camp - kinda cool, huh?

    2. The Slightly Off Center players present A. R. Gurney's "Sylvia" starting this weekend at the Center Theatre in Dover-Foxcroft. Come see what happens to a middle-aged husband who is depressed about his work and uninspired in life when a beautiful, vivacious, loving dog enters his life? Are the bonds of matrimony stronger than man's best friend? The show is at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, and tickets are $12 at the door.

    3. There's another punk rock show at the Worker Center on Ivers Street in Brewer this Friday. Megatime, Grendel's Army, Clinic Bomb, the Slum Lords and a reunited Taco Apocalypse will play starting at 5 p.m. and $5 gets you in the door.

    4. The Camden International Film Festival is set for this weekend in locations in Camden, Rockland and Rockport. 20 documentary films about everything from the Iraq War to snow shoeing will be shown on Friday, Saturday and Sunday - for more info and for show times, visit

    5. If you feel like traveling southwards, go check out the crazy dance party that is a set from mash up DJ Girl Talk, who will play at 9:30 p.m. on Saturday at the Gray Athletic Building at Bates College in Lewiston. Girl Talk, a.k.a Greg Gillis, has been known to strip down to his skivvies and lead a pack of partyers out into the streets. That's how much fun his sets are. Tickets are $12, and are available at the door or at
