Saturday is the big day for the 2018 MAMM SLAM. Maine's annual High School Band Rock-Off is happening at Empire in Portland. Doors open at 1 pm and tickets cost $12 for adults, $7 for students, and children under 5 are free. If you know someone in a band, they will have $2 off coupons for the show. The event is put on by the amazing Maine Academy of Modern Music, who is Maine's biggest statewide music school. Come on down. You won't believe how GOOD these kids are!
