Chris Ross and The North

New Band, New Album Young Once'

'Make a little room, take me when you go. We could let the coastline fade. We could call the highway home.' The opening lines of 'Annabelle' one of the standout tracks from 'Young Once,' the third album from Chris Ross and the first recorded with his new band.

The 2nd Annual Penobscot Music Festival is scheduled for Sunday, May 24, from 4 p.m. to 12 midnight at Jeff's Catering in Brewer.

A celebration of the area's local music scene, the benefit concert will feature eight bands for a $3 cover at the door.

Fully authorized documentaries, like authorized biographies, have a reputation for providing a whitewashed version of their subject. When Oscar-nominated filmmaker Brett Morgen ('On The Ropes,' 'The Kid Stays in the Picture' and the Rolling Stones doc, 'Crossfire Hurricane') signed on to write, direct and produce a documentary on the life of Nirvana leader Kurt Cobain, he was given just one dictate: 'Keep it honest.'

The result, 'Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck,' set to premiere on HBO Monday, May 4 at 9 p.m. and 14 more times throughout the month, is a searingly real mlange of images and audio pulled every part of Cobain's life, much of it never seen or heard before.

Many of us dread the doctor's office weigh-in, knowing that the number is frequently a little higher than we'd prefer.

For Derek Mitchell, 34, of Kansas City, Missouri, a weigh-in at his doctor's office last November was a wake-up call.

With literally hundreds of appearances in television and film dating back to the 1960s, you might think that Ed Begley, Jr. ('St. Elsewhere,' 'Arrested Development,' 'Best in Show') could be a little jaded about the idea of returning to series television.

But as Begley reveals in the following interview, after reading the script and seeing the pilot for a new one-hour domestic comedy called 'Your Family or Mine' (Tuesdays at 10 p.m. on TBS), he couldn't say 'yes' fast enough.

Aisha Tyler must be one of the busiest people working in Hollywood today. Seen daily on CBS's 'The Talk,' Tyler has also hosted The CW's 'Who's Line Is It Anyway?' for the past three years.

Since 2010, Tyler has been the voice of deadly super-spy 'Lana Kane' on 'Archer,' airing Thursdays at 10 p.m. on FX. The animated comedy's carefully plotted, rapid-fire scripts rightfully inspire comparisons to another beloved cult classic 'Arrested Development.'

As you read this, I want you to imagine a dapper man sitting with a guitar in the warm California sun. He's singing a song that he just wrote about your life.

Alright, the song may not specifically be about your life - or mine - but no one will fault us for thinking that it could be.

Randy Bachman talks Heavy Blues'

As a founding member of both The Guess Who and Bachman-Turner Overdrive, Randy Bachman's status as a rock legend is secure.

Bachman has a reputation for being among the most unassuming of rock stars. If you were to ask Randy, he would tell you that he's just a regular guy who still loves rock and roll and radio.
