    5 things to do this weekend, 11.20.08

    Hey kids, I'm back!

    1. For starters, check out the band Dreamosaic at the Red Martini Saturday night in Bangor. Dreamosaic are a southern Maine based electronic duo, who play techno-infused rock. It's seriously cool stuff, and this is their first appearance in Bangor, so go check it out. Music starts at 9:30 and it's 21 plus.

    2. Oh my god you guys, "Twilight" opens this weekend. Based on the wildly popular young adult series by Stephanie Meyer, the buzz around this movie has been building for weeks. Hottie vampires, need we say more? There's a midnight showing at Bangor Mall Cinema tonight, and regular showing all weekend there and at Spotlight in Orono.

    3. Gandalf Murphy and the Slambovian Circus of Dreams take the stage at the Grand Theatre this Friday. As they describe themselves, they're like "hillbilly Pink Floyd," complete with stage theatrics and grandiose riffage. By most accounts, they are a killer live act. Show starts at 7:30 Friday night; for more info, visit

    4. Winterport Open Stage continues it's run of "The Taming of the Shrew," with performances at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at Wagner Middle School. However, this isn't the Shakespeare version - it's an adaptation using animal characters instead of the traditional characters. Hey, why not? For more info, visit

    5. Nothing else to do on lazy Sunday? Close your weekend out with a performance from Carlene Carter at the Unity Center for the Performing Arts. Carter, daughter of June Carter and step daughter of Johnny Cash, has music running through her veins, and plays a mean guitar and a rootsy, easygoing brand of rock n' roll. For more info, visit
