Butcher Boy + Coke Weed + O'Death + Colby Nathan
ANOTHER LAUNCH | Next week marks the launch of Acorn’s annual Maine Playwright’s Festival at the St. Lawrence Arts Center. Thursday’s feature is a staged reading of lo-cal Cullen McGough’s Want/Not at 7:30. Otherwise, a big stand-up fandango gets on its feet at Local Buzz, where Kate Ghiloni, Karen Morgan, Stephanie Doyle, David Swander Ja-cobs, and Lucas O’Neil tell jokes at 7:30. Then there’s a wild one at SPACE, where Bar Harbor’s Coke Weed play tracks from their upcoming record with the Americana-punk band O’Death, who celebrate 10 years of life together.
