Celebrated Maine author Elizabeth Peavey returns to the St. Lawrence Arts in Portland on Saturday, June 6th with her hilarious and heartbreaking one-woman show, “My Mother's Clothes Are Not My Mother,” which won the 2013 Maine Literary Award for Best Drama.
“My Mother’s Clothes” is performed in a series of connected monologs by Peavey as she confronts the following: Losing a parent is difficult enough. Losing your final parent presents an additional challenge: What are you supposed to do with all your family's stuff? For months, she avoided wading through her late mother's things. But when her mom's condo sells, she's forced to reckon with its contents. As she does, objects surface, triggering memories from her childhood. Possessions she once thought would be easy to chuck - the Polynesian hors d'oeuvre platter, the outdated evening coat, the milk glass and tea cups - suddenly take on epic stature, forcing the question: How do we know when to let go?

06/13/15 – CHRIS TRAPPER began his career as the front man for late–90’s alternative rock band THE PUSH STARS (Capitol Records). With four CD releases and several high profile national tours – including a run with Matchbox Twenty – The Push Stars served to establish Chris as an authentic talent. As a modern day singer–songwriter, Chris is most known for his song THIS TIME, the Number 1 selling song on the Grammy nominated soundtrack for AUGUST RUSH (Robin Williams, Jonathan Rhys Meyers – Warner Bros Pictures).
Trapper’s music can best be described as lyrically driven roots–pop with a knack for telling everyday stories filled with extra–ordinary characters. His work hailed by The New York Times as "classic pop perfection".
His most recent album release 'Technicolor'(Oct. 2013) is a collection of 17 songs written and performed by the artist.

Her acclaimed self-titled album was release with celebration and praise in 2014. Hailed as, "A masterstroke of hooky melodies and razor-sharp lyrics that address the never-easy battlefield of the heart."- Steve Morse/The Boston Globe

06/26/15 – Don't miss The Thalia Zedek Band as they perform with Bar Harbor based psychedelic rock band Coke Weed, here at St. Lawrence Arts on Fri. June 26th at 7PM. TICKETS $8 adv // $10 door.
Thalia Zedek might be entering the fourth decade of her career as one of the most singular voices in rock, but she shows no signs of creative fatigue and continues to be an integral part of the Boston music scene ever since her debut in the 90's when she introduced her unique approach to neo-psychedelic and folk-rock.
Zedek released her first album in five years in 2013. She also reunited with Come, re-issuing their classic debut Eleven:Eleven. In October, following this intense flurry of activity, Thalia regrouped with her band in Boston to record an EP, harnessing the creative energy she had accumulated during her time on the road.
The resulting album "SIX"- is an six song album, concisely arranged and generous in sounds. "[SIX is..] a seeming back and forth between Zedek and the guitar, a conversation between voice and instrument. In an album that digs into relationships and the echoes they leave in our lives, this is the one that Six leaves us with, the one between emotion and the means to express."- Matthew Fiander/Pop Matters
We are thrilled to have New England-based indie-psychedelic group Coke Weed start the evening off with a set preview their upcoming album. Due out this Oct. 2015 will be 'Mary Weaver', the quintet's fourth LP. The band's longstanding love for the glam/art-rock axis, class of West Berlin, comes to the fore. The result is a panorama that encompasses Bolan's boogie, the kraut/R&B hybrids of Bowie's Station to Station, and the desperate romanticism of Roxy Music and Iggy Pop.
You asked for it- and you got it! Lady Luck Burlesque is finally making their Portland debut! The ladies couldn't be happier to show Portland how they shimmy and shake. "A Summer Burly-Q Review" is the perfect mix of traditional burlesque, glitz & glamour, and sensual tease. They promise it will make your summer night even hotter! They bring some new acts and crowd pleasing favorites to the St. Lawrence that's guaranteed to bring the house down.
Lady Luck Burlesque consists of a talented and diverse group of 20 performers who are always proud to bring classy, well rehearsed shows all over New England.
