PORTLAND (WPFO) -- It's the last weekend of summer vacation for a lot of Maine students.  So make sure you get out and enjoy it!  Trevor Geiger from Dispatch Magazine tells us about some of the events this weekend.


The Mallett Bros w/ Waylon Speed & O’Chang Comics
Thursday, August 21 (8 p.m.)

Looking for a summer concert? Come see The Mallett Brothers, whose melting pot of musical influences includes folk, rock, punk, and even psychedelic. The concert opens with Waylon Speed, described by The Washington Post as “a cross between Metallica and the Lumineers, with an unnecessary dash of Prince showmanship.”
