Weekend Spotlight: Some lovely music, wine and hors d’eouvres

Thu, 12/09/2021 - 12:00pm

It’s raining cats and dogs this weekend (figuratively) with a holiday party dedicated to animals, a tribute show named after a cat, and a mellow jazz concert, which has nothing to do with cats or dogs.

Tinsel & Tails Holiday Gala

Friday, December 10—Camden

PAWS Animal Adoption Center is throwing their annual holiday fundraiser at High Mountain Hall starting at 5:30 p.m. with music, a cash bar, complimentary wine, heavy appetizers, a Fund-a-Cause presentation, and more. Tickets are $50 each for admission, with all net proceeds going to support the animals at PAWS Animal Adoption Center. Only 45 tickets will be sold for this event. FMI: Tickets

Cat Stevens Tribute Show

Sunday, December 12— Belfast


Funny story: Every time I pick up a prescription for my cat at the pharmacy, the label lists it as “Cat Stephens.” If you love the real Cat Stevens, musician Tom DiMenna will be playing at Three Tides & Marshall Wharf Brewery to celebrate the 50th anniversary of “Tea for the Tillerman.” DiMenna replicates Cat’s signature finger-picking melodies and vocal phrasing to set the mood. The fee show goes from 5 to 8 p.m. FMI: Details
