Chris Webby
DJ Semi
Jitta on the Track

special guest

Thursday, November 20 |  7:00p  |  $15

In the past 5 years, Chris Webby has released 10 full length projects, 8 of which were given away completely for free.  All of his releases have been known to cause a big splash.  He was the first artist to ever crash the server at the largest online mixtape site, (he was also the second to do it).  Webby's debut EP in 2012, "There Goes The Neighborhood," not only topped the iTunes Hip-Hop charts within 24 hours of its release, but also boasted the number one spot on the Billboard Heatseeker chart.  His most recent release, the mixtape The Check Up, reached platinum download status within the first week of release on one site alone.  The numbers speak for themselves. Webby's body of work has built him a large and notoriously loyal fan base.  His online presence is massive.  His widespread fan base not only continuously proves their ferocity online, but through their support of his live shows, resulting 5 of his own nationwide tours.  He has had sold out shows at famous venues from Webster Hall in New York to The Troubadour in LA.

Songwriting, singing, and playing the guitar have never been a choice for Texas-born, finger-picking, Bryce Ernest Taylor.  It is just a part of who he is.  His compassion and understanding of the human condition, his natural musical talent, and his desire to share this through his smooth voice and rhythmic guitar skills made his entry into the Indie-Folk music scene inevitable.  His winding road through the various terrains of love and life, marriage and fatherhood, informs his songwriting and has led to an appreciation of life that pervades his musical expression.  Drawing from his own, as well as others', life experiences and the diverse musical influences of folk rock of the 60's and 70's, 80's new wave, and a wealth of progressive singer/songwriters of the past two decades, he comes up with a sound personal and unique.  Affectionately given the nickname of "capo boy" at one of Paul Reisler's songwriting camps for his use of multiple capos (thanks to Don Conoscenti ), he refuses to let the guitar make the same old sounds or to write songs with a cookie-cutter.

She's a swingin', sassy, rockabilly redhead who sings what most won't say.  With influences like Elvis Presley, Wanda Jackson, The Beatles, and Dolly Parton, she's a little bit country and a little bit rock 'n' roll. Her name is Lindsay Brandt, but you can call her Red.

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.
