Maine Tool Library to open in Bayside

Free home goods

Brown case isn't so black-and-white

Diverse City
One minute, Michael Brown was walking to his grandmother’s house in Ferguson, Missouri, on Aug 9. The next minute, he was dead—another young black man sent to his grave violently before he could even really live his life.

Growth is a myth

Artist and adolescent make arresting Sigrid
Sigrid on Her 14th Birthday is an unlikely merging of minds that’s as fresh, authorially confused, and genre-slippery as they come.

Telling it like it is

Critical reviews of Portland arts by Telling Room students
Two weeks ago, the Telling Room hosted Review Camp, a week-long forum where greater Portland students (aged 10-14) learned to write critically about arts and cultural activities in the area, training their sights on a music video by indie-pop singer-songwriter Sara Hallie Richardson, the newish soda parlor Vena’s Fizz House in the Old Port, and art shows at SPACE Gallery and the Portland Museum of Art.

Fire on fire

Caro Khan introduce themselves as Pyronauts
From the varying deliveries and styles through the three fully instrumental tracks, there’s a lot to consider in Pyronauts , with equal attractions in playing it loud in the car with the windows down and in the headphones.

Not getting by in Portland


The city’s economy, and especially its real estate market, is booming, and gentrification is a potent force reshaping many neighborhoods. But it’s striking how much is the same for low-wage workers.

USM budget deficit split by conflicting philosophies

Crisis at USM
Whatever criteria the University of Maine system is using to decide where to cut, it doesn’t seem related to the production of degrees.

Coping with adulthood

Central Provisions vs. Old Port wisdom
The neighborhood’s newish Central Provisions is grown up. But it also embodies our ambivalence about adulthood, and our persistent hope that a few more drinks will help us cope with it.
