Central Street in Downtown Bangor will look a little different on Saturday night...would you believe it if we told you it was becoming Diagon Alley for the night?! Join in on the fun as we celebrate the midnight release of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by transforming a small part of downtown into the legendary wizarding world. Specialty Sweets Downtown will become legendary sweets shop Honeydukes; Temple of the Feminine Divine will offer an assortment of "Swish and Flick" wands as Ollivanders Wand Shop; Haus of Ao - Threading & Henna will offer henna body art as Scribbulus Writing Implements; Central Street Farmhouse is the Leaky Cauldron serving up free samples of (nonalcoholic) Butterbeer; The Rock & Art Shop is your one-stop shop for all things curious as Slug & Jiggers Apothecary; and of course The Briar Patch is offering pre-orders of the new book in their role as Flourish & Blotts. Activities, games, food, and performances for wizards and muggles alike of all ages!
It all happens from 10pm-12midnight this Saturday, July 30th, culminating with the sale of the new Harry Potter book at 12:01am!

Perhaps no other large building in downtown Bangor has inspired so many hypothetical conversations as 73 Central, the long-empty, multistory structure near the corner of Central and Main streets. What could go into that space?
This Thursday night in West Market Square...join us for a Cool Sounds Concert with William Joseph Jiordan! William played in the Blue Hill dance band the Living Daylight, and co-founded the folk ensemble Oh Deer!, and now brings his own brand of poetic balladry and orchestral folk to our Downtown stage.
Show starts at 6pm, with our Fresh Air Market opening earlier at 5pm. As always, our FREE concert series is brought to you by the generous support of Emera Maine and Beal College. #downtownbgr #heybangor #coolsounds #listenlocal ... See MoreSee Less

Rushad Eggleston (“Rushadicus”) is a revolutionary cellist, composer, poet-philosopher, and entertainer whose unforgettable performances captivate and inspire all generations and types. With an intimate knowledge of classical music, jazz, and bluegrass under his fingers, coupled with an infamously infectious sense of rhythm, Rushad is a whole futuristic wonder-band expressed through just one person. Using his cello (and occasionally a guitar) as the steering wheel, Rushadicus will take you on a rocket-fueled melodic journey through space and time, and from the ridiculous to the sublime. Hopping nimbly around the stage with his cello strapped to his body while passionately singing songs that range from stuck-in-your-head-for-weeks to elaborate yet compelling miniature operas in his own language of Sneth, Eggleston is an incomparable soulful jester of modern times. A fearless improviser, Eggleston spontaneously navigates through his seemingly endless repertoire of instrumentals and vocals, only pausing briefly to set the stage for a battle between him and Bach, or rattling off with incredible speed a 3 page poem of self-fashioned words*.
If this sounds a bit far-fetched or incoherent, make no mistake: Rushad Eggleston is a world-class entertainer, with credentials. He won a full scholarship to Berklee College of Music in Boston and was nominated for a Grammy award while still studying there, a feat which no other member of its laundry list of legendary alumni have pulled off. Eggleston singlehandedly invented bluegrass cello and spawned a huge revival of cello in roots music. Now it seems every other band you see has some transformed cellist jamming along. In addition to acting in television commercials for the likes of Mazda, appearing on movie soundtracks and hundreds of studio recordings, Rushad was also a founding member of the popular alt-bluegrass outfit Crooked Still, legendary stringband Fiddlers 4, and explosive rock trio Tornado Rider. He has performed at renowned venues (including Carnegie Hall) in 45 states and 13 countries, and taught hundreds of youngsters worldwide how to let loose their musical imaginations and rock on the cello.
Doors open at 7pm, Show starts at 8pm.
