Anybody else enjoying the heck out of this heat wave? It feels like summer is finally on it's way. All I really need to be happy is for the weather to stay like this all year... Oh, and live music! Here's this weekend's roundup:

FRIDAY 5/4

May The Fourth Be With You: Party Time Excellent Star Wars Party
Portland House of Music (Portland)
8:00pm Doors / 9:00pm Show
$5 Advance / $8 Day of Show
21+
- Who wouldn't want to go to a Star Wars dance party?! Featuring live renditions of your favorite tunes from the movies, this party should service both casual and hardcore fans equally. One word of advice, though - don't be that guy that dresses up line Princess Leia.

Juke Joint Devils
She Doesn’t Like Guthrie’s (Lewiston)
8:00pm Show
Free
All Ages
- Portland based Juke Joint Devils certainly live up to their name - well, the juke joint part anyway. This decidedly 50's inspired set of rock and rockabilly tunes is sure to satisfy the greaser in you. I'd say sport your pompadour, but MAN those are a lot of work.

 

SATURDAY 5/5

Local Laughs: Cinco De Mayo
Aura (Portland)
8:00pm Doors / 9:00pm Show
Free
21+
- CYY's comedian in chief Brett Groh is at it again - bringing a solid lineup of local comedians to the stage, Local Laughs is a great way to get out and see what Portland's comedy scene has to offer. If you see Brett, though, try not to harass him... much.

Chris Ross & The North
Bangor Arts Exchange Ballroom (Bangor)
8:30pm Doors / 9:00pm Show
$10 Advance / $15 Day of Show
All Ages
- Chris Ross & the North are definitely one of Maine's mightiest rock bands - they're from here and they sound like it. Add that to a great venue, and rotating taps, and you have an awesome, though slightly less traditional way to spend Cinco De Mayo. 

Sloan
Empire (Portland)
9:00pm Doors / 10:00pm Show
$20 Tickets
21+
- Hailing from Halifax, NS, Sloan have been in the pop rock game for more than 25 years. Their finely crafted tunes have made waves all over Canada, and gained them a cult following here in the US. Think dreamy pop with hints of Weezer.

Well, there's this week's list! If I missed something you think deserves to be mentioned, leave a link in the comments and help get the word out!!
