Sassquatch

Sat July 30 | 8pm | $10 in advance, $12 day of show | Buy Tickets

Sassquatch is the missing link between funk, fusion, jazz, rock and pop. With the massive support of their fans, and their dedication to the music they love, the group has been fortunate enough to perform at venues across the state, at the WCYY stage of the Old Port Festival, and has been able to fund their first full length album “Cryptomusicology”. Fronted by the dynamic vocal work of Christine McCormick and Jared Wilkinson, dominated by the technical guitar proficiency of Matthew Knight and Bryant Sirois, and the rhythmic precision of bassist Dan Gilbert and drummer Cameron Lopez, Sassquatch works diligently to make believers out of their audience. Have you seen Sassquatch?

“They have achieved that rare perfect balance of danceable grooves, sophisticated musicality, and compelling stage presence.” – Richard Nelson Professor of Music, Jazz and Contemporary Music Program, University of Maine at Augusta.

The Secret of Kells
Directed by Tomm Moore
Starring Brendan Gleeson, Mick Lally, Evan McGuire, Christen Mooney
English
1 hr 15 mins

2010 Academy Award® Nominee –Best Animated Feature

A masterpiece from the producers of KIRIKOU, THE SORCERESS and TRIPLETS OF BELLEVILLE! Magic, fantasy and Celtic mythology come together in a riot of color and detail that dazzle the eyes in this sweeping story about the power of imagination and faith to carry humanity through dark times. Features the voices of Brendan Gleeson (Harry Potter, In Bruges), Mick Lally, Evan McGuire and Christen Mooney.

Young Brendan lives in a remote medieval outpost under siege from barbarian raids. But a new life of adventure beckons when a celebrated master illuminator arrives from foreign lands carrying an ancient but unfinished book, brimming with secret wisdom and powers. To help complete the magical book, Brendan has to overcome his deepest fears on a dangerous quest that takes him into the enchanted forest where mythical creatures hide. It is here that he meets the fairy Aisling, a mysterious young wolf-girl, who helps him along the way. But with the barbarians closing in, will Brendan’s determination and artistic vision illuminate the darkness and show that enlightenment is the best fortification against evil?

The_Secret_of_Kells_movie_poster

SHORT: In the remote Irish woods, Cellach (Brendan Gleeson) prepares a fortress for an impending attack by a Viking war party. Unbeknown to Cellach, his young nephew Brendan (Evan McGuire) — who has no taste for battle — works secretly as an apprentice in the scriptorium of the local monastery, learning the ancient art of calligraphy. As the Vikings approach, revered illuminator Aidan (Mick Lally) arrives at the monastery and recruits Brendan to complete a series of dangerous, magical tasks.

No conventional sports documentary, The Trials Of Muhammad Ali investigates its extraordinary and often complex subject’s life outside the boxing ring. From joining the controversial Nation of Islam and changing his name from Cassius Clay to Muhammad Ali, to his refusal to serve in the Vietnam War in the name of protesting racial inequality, to his global humanitarian work, Muhammad Ali remains an inspiring and controversial figure. Outspoken and passionate in his beliefs, Ali found himself in the center of America’s controversies over race, religion, and war. From Kartemquin Films – makers of such acclaimed documentaries as Hoop Dreams and The Interrupters – and Academy Award-nominated director Bill Siegel (The Weather Underground), The Trials Of Muhammad Ali examines how one of the most celebrated sports champions of the 20th century risked his fame and fortune to follow his faith and conscience.

A unique film following an international cast of three generations of women artists from Cairo, France, Germany, Iran, the United States and the United Kingdom who are forging their careers in the London art scene.

The film takes you on an intimate but fast-paced journey, moving the lens between art and life to reveal the dynamic and multi-faceted story of this enigmatic calling.

From the creators of the Academy Award®-nominated The Secret of Kells comes a breathtakingly gorgeous, hand-drawn masterpiece. Based on the Irish legend of the Selkies, SONG OF THE SEA tells the story of the last seal-child, Saoirse, and her brother Ben, who go on an epic journey to save the world of magic and discover the secrets of their past. Pursued by the owl witch, Macha, and a host of ancient and mystical creatures, Saoirse and Ben race against time to awaken Saoirse’s powers and keep the spirit world from disappearing forever. As enthralling for adults as for children young and old, Song of the Sea is a wonder of magical storytelling and visual splendor that is destined to become a classic.

No conventional sports documentary, The Trials Of Muhammad Ali investigates its extraordinary and often complex subject’s life outside the boxing ring. From joining the controversial Nation of Islam and changing his name from Cassius Clay to Muhammad Ali, to his refusal to serve in the Vietnam War in the name of protesting racial inequality, to his global humanitarian work, Muhammad Ali remains an inspiring and controversial figure. Outspoken and passionate in his beliefs, Ali found himself in the center of America’s controversies over race, religion, and war. From Kartemquin Films – makers of such acclaimed documentaries as Hoop Dreams and The Interrupters – and Academy Award-nominated director Bill Siegel (The Weather Underground), The Trials Of Muhammad Ali examines how one of the most celebrated sports champions of the 20th century risked his fame and fortune to follow his faith and conscience.

DaPonte String Quartet Summer Series II: Then and Now

The Quartet stretches itself both geographically and musically with Summer Series II: “Then and Now.” The series gallops through classical music from its earliest foundations to a hot-off-the-press contemporary work: a new quartet commissioned by the DaPonte String Quartet.

 

“Then and Now” will consist of differing selections including: Dutch-born composer Rocco Havelaar’s  Quartet No. 3, J.S. Bach’s Three Contrapuncti from The Art of Fugue, and Felix Mendelssohn’s Op. 13 (one of two works featured on the DSQ’s soon-to-be released CD).

The DSQ is especially pleased to be presenting the Havelaar world premiere. Fittingly– for the Then and Now theme–Havelaar says his work, while a thoroughly contemporary string quartet, was inspired by Brahms and late Beethoven.

Tickets ($25, free for under 21) are available from www.daponte.org, or at Gulf of Maine Books, Brunswick,  OR Pay As You Wish at the door

Pelé: Birth of a Legend
Directed by Jeffrey & Michael Zimbalist
Starring Vincent D’Onofrio, Rodrigo Santoro, Diego Boneta
1 hr 47 mins, rated PG

Pelé. A name known around the world, a sports legend who changed soccer forever, and a national hero who carried the hopes and dreams of a country on his back. But before he was an icon, he was a kid from the slums of São Paulo, Brazil, so poor that he couldn’t afford a real soccer ball. Charting his meteoric rise—from scrubbing floors to support his family to honing his electrifying playing style on the streets to leading Brazil’s national team to its first World Cup victory at the age of 17—Pelé vividly brings to life the greatest sports story of the 20th century. With Vincent D’Onofrio and Brazilian musical star Seu Jorge.

When Elephants Were Young
Directed by Patricia Sims
Starring William Shatner

1 hr 30 mins, rated NR

When Elephants Were Young is a 2015 Canadian documentary film directed by World Elephant Day Co-Founder Patricia Sims and narrated by William Shatner.

Wok and his young elephant Nong Mai share a life of struggle and street begging in gritty Bangkok. Their tender bond reveals a complex relationship where elephants live with humans even though they are wild animals. One day the opportunity comes to release Nong Mai to the wild. Can an elephant who has only known a life of captivity survive in the forest? While the lens never strays from its focus of protecting the endangered Asian elephant from exploitation and extinction, this provocative and bittersweet film is a surprising view into the paradoxes of elephants in captivity, dismantling common beliefs about the age-old relationship between human and elephant. Despite imminent threats to the future of Asian elephants, the opportunity for Nong Mai’s survival may be a happy ending that offers hope for all.

Snaex and Bad Mariachi

Snaex know no limits, yet aspire to align themselves with what is always necessary: patience, harmony, and the child’s mind. Snaex are Chris Teret, who hails from Baltimore and founded a band called Company, and Chriss Sutherland, who is from Maine and who helped maintain such musics as Cerberus Shoal, Fire on Fire, and Olas. Both now reside in the Portland, Maine area.
Buy Tickets
Bad Mariachi is a song project of greater Brunswick denizen, McKay Belk, his bandmates from the absence-laden if and it, Chris Dibiasio and Tim Alan Walker, and local songbird, Kristin Kellas. It’s an obsessed avocation that is told with a vestigial drawl hungover from a southern boyhood. All of these players have spent the better part of this decade nursing their affinity for the amorphous thing we now call folk music, so it comes as no surprise when you hear certain staples of the era; a stumbling swing time, 90s dissonance, meek perversions of jazz, and other subtle appropriations from around the world. Which is not to say it’s insincere. The songs come from excessive introspection– rambling predictions that hold no water, veiled confessions, descriptions of systemic failure, and raw salutes to the hilarity of modern self-doubt. Their first recording, an aimless waltz called “Crowhurst”, will be featured as part of an installation by Emilie Stark-Menneg at the PMA biennial.

The true, decades-spanning tale of the greatest fan film ever made.
After Steven Spielberg’s classic Raiders of the Lost Ark was released 35 years ago, three 11-year-old boys from Mississippi set out on what would become a 7-year-long labor of love and tribute to their favorite film: a faithful, shot-for-shot adaptation of the action adventure film. They finished every scene…except one; the film’s explosive airplane set piece.

Over two decades later, the trio reunited with the original cast members from their childhood in order to complete their masterpiece. Featuring interviews with John Rhys Davies, Eli Roth and more, Raiders!: The Story of the Greatest Fan Film Ever Made is just that: the story of this long-gestating project’s culmination, chronicling the friends’ dedication to their artistic vision—mixed in with some movie magic—to create a personal, epic love letter to a true modern classic.
