Transylvanian Lip Treatment presents
Midnight Picture Show
US 1975 | digital | Dir: Jim Sharman | 100min | R

Midnight / doors 11:00p  |  $7
17+ unless accompanying parent or adult guardian

This campy cult classic (which unfortunately, we can't name here, but you can watch the trailer over there) is the most popular midnight movie of all time.  A corn-fed all-American couple stumbles onto a creepy castle one night when their car breaks down, entering a world they never dreamed existed. The castle turns out to be inhabited by a collection of kinky Transylvanian freaks led by a mad bisexual transvestite.  The film gained notoriety as the most successful midnight movie ever, in which hundreds of cult fans show up in costume and act out scenes from the movie.

You are not allowed to bring your own props.  Prop kits are available at the show.  Prop kits include rice (during the wedding scene at the very beginning, throw yours in celebration), a newspaper (during the rain scene, keep dry), noise maker (during the creation speech, celebrate and MAKE SOME NOISE), toilet paper (when the doctor breaks through the lab wall, hurl your "scotts" tissue), and toast (make your toast during the birthday dinner...toss it), will be available at the show for $4.  YOU ARE ENCOURAGED TO COME IN COSTUME.

Doors open at 11:00pm.  Virgin sacrifice before the show.  The movie begins at Midnight.

NUVO Members Pick
the Irving Theater welcomes


featuring
Joe Martyn Ricke (Huntington)
Katherine Nagy (Indianapolis)
Kelee Smyth (Indianapolis)
Marissa Dooley (Indianapolis)

8:00p / doors 7:30p  |  free ($5 suggested)


Joe Martyn Ricke is a native Texan poet, singer, songwriter, actor, writer, director, and raconteur, in the tradition of native Texas poets, singers, songwriters, actors, writers, directors and raconteurs.

His compelling, poetic songs leave audiences thinking and feeling but rarely sleeping.  A song like “Divine Electricity” leaves some folks thinking--“what the hell did I just listen to?”  And a song like “Beautiful Eyes” leaves folks feeling that the world is full of some incredible ultimate delight which, unfortunately, might be just out of reach but is still worth singing/howling about anyway(s).  When the flow is right, his songs provoke both feelings at the same time. One fellow songwriter says that Joe’s song “Little Clarissa” is “the saddest song ever written.” Taking that as both a compliment and a challenge, Joe is working hard to wrap up the entire t0p (or bottom) ten saddest songs as well.

Katherine Nagy is a songwriter and singer and currently lives in Indianapolis.  She has lived in many places including Ireland, Puerto Rico, Spain, Chicago, Seattle and more.  She has been greatly influenced by the music from these life experiences and enjoys incorporating eclectic styles and sounds into her lyrics and arrangements.

Over the years she has played the piano, the flute and the guitar, but her instrument of choice has always been her voice.  She has been involved in choral groups, musical theatre and classical voice training from childhood through college and beyond.

After graduating from Saint Mary's College with a business degree, she started working as a consultant.  She also began writing lyrics and music during this time and performing in Chicago at open mics.  She took a pause from songwriting and performing as she started a family with her husband.  However, she has recently decided to pick up the pen, paper and guitar again and has started writing some new music.

#Kashmir

Mark Gasper presents
Led Zeppelin Tribute Band
Kashmir

7:30p / doors 6:30p  |  $22 / $40 VIP


Chicago-based Kashmir performs music from Led Zeppelin's entire catalog including Led Zeppelin's classic movie, The Song Remains The Same.

Kashmir does not take liberties with the music. Led Zeppelin should be played as it was using only the equipment of the era, and should be reproduced dead on with great respect and admiration.

"It's not about us, it's about Led Zeppelin".

For everyone who loves Zep, and wants to experience an authentic recreation of a concert, this is the show to see! With costumes, effects and instruments exactly like those used by Zep, this is a true tribute concert.

This is an all-ages concert. Special ticket prices for fans who are ages 18 and under!

#ELPLegacyTour

Mark Gasper presents
Emerson, Lake & Palmer Legacy Tour
Carl Palmer

7:30p / doors 6:30p  |  $30 / $50 VIP


Carl Palmer, who was voted by ROLLING STONE as one of the 10 Greatest Drummers of All Time for his work in Emerson Lake & Palmer, is also a founding member of (and still tours with) ASIA. Overall, Palmer has sold over 50 million records.

Since 2001, Carl has fronted a 3 piece power trio: guitar, bass & drums doing the classically-driven rock hits of ELP.  He has totally reinvented the music of ELP.  If you can imagine, ELP with Steve Vai or Joe Satriani in the band instead of Keith Emerson, you can grasp the power of Carl's new band.

ELP's megahits, including Pictures At An Exhibition, Lucky Man, From the Beginning and Tarkus, helped define Progressive Rock and earned sales of 48 million.  Palmer's new band captures all the power of these hits in a hard driving, instrumental performance that's winning raves globally.

Don't miss this fantastic concert, with one of the true Kings of Prog Rock, celebrating the music which defined the genre.

Stay after the concert to meet Carl and the band, purchase their latest CD and DVD releases, plus classic reissues of ELP recordings, and get Carl to autograph them for you.

This is an all-ages concert. Special ticket prices for fans who are ages 18 and under!

#BrandX

Mark Gasper presents
Brand X
featuring Original Members John Goodsall and Percy Jones

7:30p / doors 6:30p  |  $30 / $55 VIP


Funk-Rock-Fusion Legends BRAND X are well-known for their dynamic and energetic live shows.

Anyone who has seen them in the past, has a story or two to tell.  In some circles, they may be best known for being "Phil Collins' other band besides Genesis".

For many musicians and those who simply know the music, there is no one quite like Brand X.  Founding members John Goodsall (Guitars) and Percy Jones (Bass) keep the Brand X tradition alive with a band that many are claiming as "The best live Brand X ever."

If you feel that way, you're not alone, as members of YES, Dream Theater, Kansas, The Dixie regs, Metallica and many others have come out of the woodwork to see Brand X live -- and rave about their live show.

From some serious fusion chops to subtle world beat dynamics, to offbeat British humor, it's all in an evening with Brand X... And there will be much rejoicing...

This is an all-ages concert. Ages 18 and under are admitted FREE for non-reserved seating or standing room, when accompanied by a Paying Adult or Guardian. Must have proper ID. The band's first-ever Blu-Ray concert release, and newest live CD called "Locked & Loaded", will be available at the concert, along with other Brand X recordings.  Stay after the concert for a meet-and-greet with the band and get their new releases autographed.

Dont miss the one and only BRAND X. Accept no substitutes.
