1. Theater:

The Belfast Maskers present a night of Janis Joplin’s music with Piece of My Heart, a Maskers-written show adapted from her songs. Carlene Thornton stars as the rock legend and a Belfast area musicians are her “Big Brother and the Holding Company.”

The show starts at 7 p.m. Friday night at the American Legion Hall in downtown Belfast and tickets are $10.

2. Music:

After you’ve checked out “Piece of My Heart”, check out Roots and Tendrils on Cross St in Belfast, where songwriters Putnam Smith and Gabriel Zacchai will take the stage starting at 8 p.m.

Putnam Smith is a Portland-based indie bluegrass artist who will appear at this year’s KahBang Festival, while Gabriel Zacchai is from Waldo County and plays lo-fi folk.

Admission is $5, for info visit rootsandtendrils.com.

3. Art Walk:

The Downtown Bangor Art Walk is set for 5 to 9 p.m. Friday throughout downtown Bangor. Eight different venues host a wide array of art, from political cartoon art at the Boyd Place Gallery on Boyd Street, to installation art at the University of Maine Museum of Art. Maps are available at all art walk locations and at downtown businesses. The event, as always, is completely free.

4. Music:

Saturday night in Brewer the Next Generation Theater on Center Street hosts two fantastic Bangor area bands. Magnetic North plays a heady blend of funk, rock and alternative, while Sam & Yuri play tuneful, smart indie rock in the vein of Death Cab for Cutie or the Beatles.

Show starts at 8 p.m. and admission is $7. For info visit nextgenerationtheatre.com.

5. Father’s Day.

Sunday is Father’s Day. What are you doing for Dad? A great way for the whole family to have fun is to visit one of Maine’s 47 state parks, which on June 20 only will be offering free admission to all Maine residents.

Alternatively, you can celebrate a little early and try your hand at a different game of golf, with the Hampden Country Club’s Glowball Golf Tournament. 9 holes of golf will be played after dark, using glow in the dark balls. Neat, huh? The cost is $10, which includes balls and glowing safety sticks. For info, visit hampdencountryclub.net.
