Rosedale is not a hipster band. (What the hell is a hipster anyways?).  Rosedale is not a hardcore band, not a boy band, he is not known for his tattoos, he doesn't star on some reality show, and he's not an artist who hinges his future on pitchfork declaring he is the hot new sound...and he is ok with that.  Rosedale is the musical outlet for Mike Liorti.  A 6 foot 9 friendly giant who can play piano,guitar and sing like a juggernaut.  He plays what most would call aggressive pop music, and he does it because he loves it.  He doesn't care if it's not your cup of tea...but if you're thirsty he's brewing up a new pot for you.

Myah Evans is a Bloomington based, experimental, indie, singer-songwriter.  Born in Indianapolis.  Evans has always had a distinct love for music.  Her musical education began with the piano, which she began tinkering with at a very early age.  By 14, Myah was writing full songs accompanied with the acoustic guitar loaned to her by a friend.

Her first project, a 4-track demo entitled "Familiar Things," was released on Christmas 2012.  The album was entirely written, recorded, and produced by Myah on her iPad using Garage Band.  It quickly drew the attention of popular artists in the Indy music scene.  After this release, she began performing places in the Indianapolis area at venues such as, the Athenaeum, the Irvington Theater, the Arts Garden, the CONRAD, and many more.  With the release of “Familiar Things (Deluxe Edition)”, which gave the listeners 6 more songs.

Evans decided it was time to spread further than their hometown and embarked on the #GETFAMILIARTOUR in September-October 2014.  After their return to Bloomington on Halloween of 2014 Myah began work on a an EP entitled "Y".  With the release of the EP on August 15th, 2015, listeners could hear the evident amount of growth in melody, layering, lyricism and quality of the new songs.

As a self-taught musician and guitarist, Myah has devoted her life to creating emotionally charged lyrics and melodies.  Although this talented experimental, indie, singer-songwriter has come a long way from where she started, Myah feels that she has much more to share.

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.
