BANGOR Iconic rock band Mtley Cre announced recently the details of their final addition of North American dates. The select new shows will take place in October and December as part of the band's two year Final Tour cycle. One of the stops on this tour will be in Bangor, ME at the Cross Insurance Center on Sunday, Oct. 18 as part of the Machias Savings Bank Concert Series with very special guest Alice Cooper. Mtley Cre's touring career will conclude on New Year's Eve, Dec. 31 at Staples Center in their hometown of Los Angeles where the band's career began 34 years ago.

Says bassist Nikki Sixx, 'The demand to add more shows in North America has been overwhelming. The fans have spoken so we've been trying to find time for more dates in addition to the international dates on the schedule this year. We want to say goodbye to as many fans as possible so we added these shows around the holidays. No better way to spend them than with the people who have supported us over all these years.'

BANGOR The University of Maine Museum of Art is bringing an evening of music and art to Bangor, Saturday, Aug. 17, 6 to 9 p.m. It is an occasion to celebrate art and more than 10 years of UMMA in downtown. The gala will be held in the sculpture garden of Norumbega Hall beneath a large tent. Guests can mix and mingle and participate in a number of activities, including a social media photo op, a new addition to the gala's itinerary, on the stairwell landing.

Highlights for this year's event range from craft projects to a scavenger hunt. Craft projects include button making as well as polymer bead making. Participants end up with souvenirs to bring home after the gala. The highlight of the craft activities is a large scale Summer Oasis mural that each guest is invited to contribute to.

'This is one smoking band,' I thought to myself while taking in one of the final performances of 'Hedwig and the Angry Inch' at Penobscot Theatre in downtown Bangor in early May 2010. I didn't realize then that I was watching the genesis of a new band; one that would soon become one of the most active groups in the area.

Guitarist and vocalist Sasha Alcott and drummer Chris Viner are When Particles Collide, a dynamic rock duo based in Bangor and actively garnering new fans and friends around the country. Since January 2011, they have maintained a very active gig schedule at home and on the road including shows in NYC, North Carolina, Boston, Pittsburgh and Kentucky.

When Particles Collide creates high-energy, melodic, unpretentious and well crafted punk-pop with influences that are felt but not obvious. For Sasha: The Pixies, Lady Lamb the Beekeeper, MiniBoone, Foo Fighters, The Clash, The Jam and David Bowie are among her faves. For Chris: Green Day is his all-time favorite but he also loves the Dave Matthews Band, especially drummer Carter Beauford. In Viner's formative years, Dream Theatre, Rage Against the Machine and Presidents of the United States loomed large.
