Wednesday, June 19
Fronted by singer/guitarist Leah Wellbaum, the threesome Slothrust cranks out loud, melodic alt-rock not unlike that of Portland power trio Weakened Friends, who open at Port City Music Hall (504 Congress St., Portland) at 8 p.m. Tix: $16-$18 (18+). 800-745-3000. portcitymusichall.com. And down the street at SPACE Gallery (538 Congress St.), Planned Parenthood presents a screening of Little Woods, a powerful drama about two young women out West struggling through the underworld of pain pills and poverty, at 7 p.m., followed by a discussion of health care—access challenges in Maine. Free (all ages). 828-5600. space538.org.
