Thu, 04/07/2022 - 3:00pm

    After a brief hiatus, we’re back to tell you about the hidden pockets of talent that will grace the Midcoast this weekend. And with the weather finally getting the hint and creeping up to near 50 this weekend, a road trip might be in order to catch some superior reggae bands and spring skiing at Sugarloaf Mountain.

    Sugarloaf Mountain Reggae Fest

    Thursday, April 7 through Sunday, April 10—Carrabassett Valley

    It’s Maine’s version of Spring Fest, but instead of 20-somethings drunk-arguing on the beach, the Annual Sugarloaf Reggae festival hosted by Baxter Outdoors, will feature four days of indoor and outdoor entertainment all day and night with shuttles running throughout, so you don’t have to drive. Plus, there’s still good skiing if that is your thing. They promise “good vibes only!” Click here for tickets and the band line up.

    Leave the kiddies at home for this one—The Colonial Theatre is hosting three seasoned comedians, Johnny ‘Friggin’ Ater, Tuck Tucker, and Mark Turcotte. “All three Maine comics have toured nationally and are equal parts smart and funny—with plenty of comedic bite leftover.” To see a little bit of Tuck Tucker’s act on The Bob Marley show check out this clip. The show starts at 7 p.m. and tickets are $20 which can be purchased here

    Coffee House Singers

    Saturday, April 9—Camden


    Zoot Coffee is hosting four talented singer-songwriters to croon while you sip your latte: Alice Limoges, Louisa Stancioff, Bella Barnes, and Caeley McVerry at Zoot will be performing from 5 to 8 p.m. There’s a $10-15 donation and masks are optional.
