    4. Try something different this weekend.

    5. Daniel Bernard Roumain is a composer and violinist who blends funk, rock, hip-hop and classical music into a new sonic vision of music. He's playing Sunday afternoon at Minsky Recital Hall on the UMaine campus, in a program titled A Civil Rights Reader, in which he pays tribute to people like MAya Angelou, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr. It's probably some of the most interesting music you'll hear played in this area in a while. The performance starts at 3 p.m., and tickets are available by calling 581-1805.
