Week by week

Making the most of the rest of the summer
For the rest of the summer, here are a selection of items remaining before the chill comes that you should squeeze in, no matter how quickly your calendar is filling up.

Seven-man army

Old Crow Medicine Show arrive with the Remedy
Lately, it’s been open season on “Wagon Wheel,” which has become the acoustic musician’s “Freebird,” one of the very few songs that people actually know well enough to find it funny to request.

All the world's a stage

Shakespeare's colorful As You Like It in Monmouth, Bath, and Deering Oaks Park
When three theater companies, all within a one-hour drive of Portland, choose to present the same Shakespeare play on overlapping dates, you have to wonder what about that particular show resonates with this particular moment.

Closing the gap

Is Portland ready for a $15 per hour minimum wage?
The Mayor wants to give low-wage workers a raise, but will it be a modest boost or a Seattle-style jump?

Inquiry under pressure

Richard Tuttle's experiments in printmaking
That said, “Richard Tuttle: A Print Retrospective” affords a fascinating opportunity to get a more complete picture of the artist, who, apparently, thinks like a sculptor engaging space even when paying his respects to the medium of printmaking, its practitioners, and its history.

Play oud in the West Bank
"(Israeli) immigration asked me at the airport why I didn’t leave when I could have and I said it was because I felt safe. They told me I was nuts.”

Number crunchers

Press Releases
Maybe instead of devoting still-more resources to food reviews, Maine’s leading news organizations should spend money on keeping better tabs on Augusta.

A little nip

Politics and Other Mistakes
You might not realize it, but while it’s legal to carry a gun in Maine (either openly or, with a permit, concealed), putting a flask containing an alcoholic beverage in your hip pocket is against the law.

Selling our shares

Despite its perks, Airbnb is making it tougher to live in Portland
Before we herald Airbnb as the harbinger of Portland’s “sharing economy” revolution, some troubling side effects are beginning to show. Airbnb is raising rents, fracturing neighborhoods, accelerating gentrification, and diminishing Portland’s stock of affordable, available, permanent homes.

City Theater revives stripper romp
Linda Sturdivant directs a spirited and attractively appointed production of the musical The Full Monty , the Americanized version of the 1997 British film, at the historic City Theater, in Biddeford.

Inclinations & otherwise

Three artists break out at Corey Daniels'
In an assembly that is at once challenging, aesthetically diffracted, and oddly comforting, the Maine artists Peter Bennett, Heather Chontos, and J.T. Gibson unite their work at the breathtaking Corey Daniels Gallery, the Wells art house built on a plot half in the world of regional antique culture, and the other firmly in a modernist fantasia.

What you say, Ryan?

Ghost returns with Proper Placement
Ryan’s calling card is his sincerity. While the production and presentation are of a genre, you won’t find him talking about puffing the chron or dissing women or dropping a million f-bombs or using a bunch of contemporary rap jargon. He’s got a plan and he executes it, with more variety and modes of attack than he’s had on display to this point.
