Max García Conover Album ReleaseAn organic farm in the middle of nowhere in Spain. Dry wind through dry leaves. Dogs sleeping a siesta in the sun. Rain that never comes. And horses. Always horses. This is where we dropped off the critically acclaimed singer-songwriters Haley Heynderickx (Portland, Oregon) and Max García Conover (Portland, Maine), along with a bunch of instruments. We gave them 7 days. 7 days to get to know each other. 7 days to write an EP together and record it. The result is Among Horses III, six songs of staggering beauty.Among Horses III is available now at the link below and Max will be playing a local release show on Saturday, December 1. Sadly, Haley won't be there this time, but there will be some spectacular special guests, including The Western Den and Maine Youth Rock Orchestra.listen: https://kud.li/sc011soncanciones.commaxgarciaconover.comThe Western DenTo find a musical soulmate, someone with whom to explore your innermost feelings, unite artistic languages, and craft a shared voice is a daunting, even mysterious, undertaking. Some writers spend years searching and never uncover the other half they seek; for others, a partnership just flicks on like a light. The origin story of the hauntingly beautiful duo The Western Den is wonderfully curious in just this way: Deni Hlavinka, an introspective pianist from small town Virginia, posted a song idea on a college forum for accepted students. Chris West, a bright-eyed guitarist from Bermuda, sent back the song the following day in finished form. Upon meeting in person, they discovered their musical—and personal—bond was eerily close; there was never a discussion of forming a band, never a conscious choice, it just happened, fueled by a sheer desire, a necessity to pursue what felt right.The act of reaching out in search of a common creative haven—that same force which brought Hlavinka and West together seven years ago—is a theme of ‘A Light Left On’, their forthcoming debut record. A careful labor of love, it emerged over the course of two years as a set of demos, which the pair then tracked meticulously over a six-month span. This restraint stands in stark contrast to their previous releases, two EPs which they hurried to release with the same speed and enthusiasm of Hlavinka and West’s initial long-distance collaboration. The result of their patience this time around is an ornate emotional garden, lovingly cultivated and ready for company. In their songwriting, arrangements, and production choices, the band leaves behind the folk label, which always felt like a safe descriptor yet never quite like home, pushing out into orchestral, ethereal, and chordally complex territory, while preserving their sweeping vocal harmonies, at once lush and modest, unmistakably the foundation of their partnership.‘A Light Left On’ details a coming-of-age search—for purpose, for an environment that feels authentic. From its inceptive command to “raise it up, give a name / call it close, temporary though all the same”, the album announces its creators’ desire to define themselves within a turbulent landscape of thoughts, to have a light left on somewhere that feels permanent. Absent of that flag-planting resolution, the record offers up the belief that a light is still out there—‘I’m still holding on, still, still I’m holding on’—as if spoken to themselves as a mantra, on repeat, to reassure and encourage.The Western Den showcases a mature pursuit of beauty that is all their own, and yet they capture the emotional soul-searching that exists in all of us, whether we hide it from the world or share it. In Hlavinka and West’s case, they have chosen to share it, extending their trust in each other to their audience."people under the spell of The Western Den often watch them with their heads tilted upwards, their mouths slightly open, pulsing subconsciously in time to the music. It’s like observing someone having a very strange dream.” — Zoe Atlas, Sound of Boston: Local SpotlightLEARN MORE: www.thewesternden.comLISTEN: https://open.spotify.com/artist/3AKIOaRG1CUS6JYtgavz1z?si=WbwmnS1CQmuKWt10JzKgEwMaine Youth Rock Orchestrahttps://rockorchestras.org/

Scroll Down to Register While marijuana is not new, the potency, ratios of tetrahydrocannabinol/cannabidiol, concentrated products called budder or shatter and edibles are different and present related but unique problems. General increased awareness of prescription drug misuse led to prescription drug monitoring programs and decreased prescribing of commonly misused medications.  As a result, some patients switched to using medications that are more surprising. Attendees will gain familiarity with newer substances and newer forms of or ways to use older substances of misuse, as well as how and perhaps why we are in the current circumstance of increased substance use, misuse and poor outcomes.  Substance related poisonings reported to the Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont poison centers will be presented. Newer substances, such as fentanyl analogs, electronic cigarettes and current marijuana products, as well as persistant substances, such as stimulants, sedatives and other opioids will be discussed. Trends involving opioids, amphetamines/methamphetamine, cannabis/cannabinoids, amphetamine-like hallucinogens and nicotine-containing products will be addressed.  Following the presentation, Dr. Simone will present cases and associated questions.  The audience can respond to the questions, indicating whether they have learned the most important facts and can apply them to simulated situations.  ABOUT THE PRESENTER Karen Simone, M.D. Dr. Karen Simone is the Director of the Northern New England Poison Center, which serves the States of Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont.
