    5 things to do this weekend, 10.23.08

    1. "State of the Union" opens this week at the Penobscot Theatre, with shows at 8 p.m. Friday, 5 p.m. Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday at the Bangor Opera House. The PTC gets very timely, with a play that details the rise of a candidate during the 1944 presidential election. As you'll notice if you go to the show, not that much really has changed.

    2. Boston-based heavy rockers Prospect Hill play a show at 103 Ultra Lounge in Orono on Friday night, with local bands Wolves Among Sleep, Soul Kill, Again I Rise and Rebel Angel. The show starts at 8 p.m., admission is 10 bucks, and it's all ages.
    3. The Devil Music Ensemble visits the Strand Theatre in Rockland again, with their original music score for the 1920 silent film "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde," which will be screened at 8 p.m. Saturday night. In the past, the Devil Music Ensemble has in the past performed their original scores for such films as "Nosferatu" and "The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari" at the Strand, and it's always been a creepy, cool night of sound and image. Admission is $13.50, and for more info
    4. Jesus Mary and Joseph, would you believe that the Napper Tandies are playin' at Paddy Murphys in downtown Bangor Friday night? Well you better believe it, cause Maine's finest Irish band will take the stage starting at 9 p.m. that night. Come drink your fill of Guinness and drunkenly sing along to "The Fields of Athenry." For more info, visit
    5. And finally, for something a little different, at 1 p.m. on Saturday at the Recreation Center at the University of Maine, the public is invited to take part in "Thrill the World," an annual worldwide simultaneous dance to Michael Jackson's "Thriller." Cities around the world are participating in the dance, and this year, UMaine is involved. Not clear enough for you? YouTube it. Then show up at the Rec Center at 1 p.m. and get your Thrill on.
