BANGOR 'The Nite Show with Danny Cashman' will celebrate WABI's 60th anniversary with a one-hour version of the show at an earlier time. "The Nite Show Celebrates 60 Years of Great TV on WABI" will air at 7 p.m. on Saturday, June 29. The show will bring together WABI personalities from the past and present, blending interviews with the show's usual amount of comedy and music.

'It is sometimes mind boggling to think that WABI's vast, impressive history now includes a nearly three-year run of a local late-night talk show," said Nite Show host Danny Cashman. "When given the opportunity to honor that history, we jumped on it. We'll have some great interviews, some comedy bits that pay homage to WABI's legacy ... and - as they used to say at TV5 - something special, too."

Return of the Frisbee

We live in an age of competition. Children play competitive sports, graduates compete to get into the best school, and they graduate into a work force that is, well, competitive. Given that, it can be hard to understand a sport as elastic as ultimate Frisbee. There are only 10 rules, and the sport can be as laid-back or competitive as you want it to be. It should not come as a surprise, then, that Queen City Ultimate is taking to the field for its second year.

 Josh Kearns, the lead organizer for Bangor's summer league, says that Bangor Parks and Recreation started a league in the early 2000s, but it was disbanded in 2008. In December 2011, Kearns and Dan Bullard, a native of Bangor, founded Queen City Ultimate, making that summer the inaugural year.

Back to Light

Sohns Gallery features the work of Caleb Charland

BANGOR The Sohns Gallery at the Rock & Art Shop is featuring the work of Maine artist Caleb Charland. Back to Light demonstrates a connection to the exploratory capacity of art.

The work explores the nature of electricity with variations on the classic potato battery experiment that is a staple of grade school science. Informed by the scientific work of Michael Faraday, Charland's work shows us that 'Nothing is too wonderful to be true,' borrowing the words of Farady.

New England Art Featured At UMMA Gallery

The University of Maine Museum of Art in downtown Bangor is displaying the finalists for the I-95 Triennial. In its second installment, a traditional jury show, the I-95 Triennial prides itself on providing a wide representation of New England artists, many of whom are from the Downeast region.

For two months, the main gallery hall is set aside to make room for the finalists - usually a rotating selection from the permanent collections (which includes works by Pablo Picasso and Salvador Dali) as well as featured contemporary artists (including Michael De Brito and Alan Bray). This year out of 113 artists, 34 were chosen for exhibition. The jury this year was composed of Timothy McDowell, professor of art, and George Kinghorn, director and curator.

A new venue. A new start

Bangor's Waterfront Concert Series begins its fourth season

BANGOR It's a gray Thursday night as people fill into the new home of Bangor's Waterfront Concert Series. Nestled into a tighter spot aside the hill along Main Street a mere hundred yards from its former spot where it stood for three years, the new Darling's Waterfront Pavilion looms large over rows of well-organized chairs that are more reminiscent of the interior of the Collins Center for the Arts than an outdoor amphitheater. Soon, rock bands Hinder and Motely Crue will be treating fans to their first sounds of heavy guitar and teeth-chattering bass in a venue that took both collaboration and patience to achieve, and for many will be home to many more concerts in the years to come.
