It's hard to believe we've been concertless for months now. I went to see Skillet in mid-March just days before things "got bad", as they say. I had no idea the rest of my spring and summer show plans would disappear seemingly overnight.

Things are starting to reopen here in Maine but the last to come will be our live entertainment, which is fair. Pack hundreds of us sweaty, screaming, singing, crying, fans into one building and that's just asking for the 'rona.

Well, the State Theatre is over it. Over not having bands on the stage and over not opening their venue to fans. While they can't completely reopen, they are opening up their doors for some bands, and for all of us...digitally.

Beginning this Friday, June 5th is a concert series titled, "Conclave". The series is kicking off with local legends, Rustic Overtones.

The live stream will be free to view on Facebook live from the State Theatre's Facebook page, which you can "like" here.

The theater states they will be following all state guidelines for the show (and those upcoming) with just the band and only the necessary staff to pull off the stream.

Each show will also have a donation link to benefit each act.
