    5 things to do this weekend, 2.26.09

    1. Psychedelic folk rock supergroup Gandalf Murphy and the Slambovian Circus of Dreams are Maine favorites, and they're playing not one, but two shows in the area this coming weekend. Check them out Friday night at 8 p.m. at College of the Atlantic in Bar Harbor, and Saturday night, also at 8 p.m., at the Unity Centre for the Performing Arts.
    2. River City Cinema continues it's winter movie series, screening Academy Award-nominated documentaries and features. Friday night, check out "Trouble the Water," a documentary about Hurricane Katrina, and Saturday night go see the OScar-winning doc "Man on Wire," detailing the high-flying art of French tightrope walker Phillipe Pettite. Both movies screen at 7:30 p.m. at the Bangor Opera House.
    3. Feel like taking the show on the road? Whether you're driving or you live in the area, take a haul down to Deer Isle and see almighty blues duo Green and Bosse play at Mikey's G Spot. It looks like we're in for slightly warmer weather this weekend, so hit the road and help bring spring a little closer.
    4. 103 Ultra Lounge in Orono hosts a who's who of Maine bands this Friday, including the Divine Ruin, the Big Coffin Hunters, Afterblack, Wolves Among Sleep and the Exclusive. Show starts at 7 p.m., and tickets are $12 at the door.
    5. And finally, OK, so Gilbert and Sullivan might not be everyone's cup of tea. But if it is, and you appreciate good, solid theater, then head down to Ellsworth this weekend for the Gilbert and Sullivan Society's take on "The Pirates of Penzance," set for 7:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday at the Grand Theatre.
