As a musician Draken Asher Mongollon is trying to get things together to play publicly more often. He gets stage time here and there both by himself and with other cool people who give him a chance to jam with them. He has a lot of fun. He's really hoping to put a band together soon because he think his sound so much better on an electric guitar with a full sound around his leads. Wish him luck.

US 1975 | digital | Dir: Jim Sharman | 100min | R

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.

Mick Foley
WWE Hall of Famer

  8:00p / doors 7:00p
  $25 / VIP $50 / PREMIUM $75 (advance)
  all ages (17+ suggested)


One of the cornerstones of WWE's meteoric rise in the late 90's, Mick Foley earned the nickname 'The Hardcore Legend' for his ability to absorb seemingly inhuman punishment in some of the most dramatic matches in sports-entertainment history. Already a respected veteran for his 11 physically punishing years wrestling under the name Cactus Jack, Foley's career soared to new heights in WWE as 'Mankind', a character Foley claimed was inspired by a combination of reading 'Mary Shelly's Frankenstein' and listening to the music of Tori Amos.

As Cactus Jack, Foley won the 1995 ‘King of the Deathmatch' tournament in Yokohama, Japan, and continued wrestling, despite the amputation of his right ear, in a match against Vader in Munich, Germany in 1994. As Mankind, Foley was a 3-time WWE Champion, but is best known for his epic and brutal battle with The Undertaker in 1998's 'Hell in a Cell' match, during which he was knocked unconscious after falls both off of and through the 16 foot Cell structure. Despite the injury, Foley finished the match – with one of his front teeth lodged in his nose.

With retirement looming as a result of that physically demanding style, Foley penned his own memoir, Have a Nice Day without the aid of a ghost-writer - writing 200,000 words in longhand in 50 days. The book showcased Foley's paradoxical blend of wit and wisdom, wildness and warmth, and shocked the literary world by hitting number one on The New York Times best-seller list in October 1999. A follow-up, 2001's Foley is Good hit number one on The New York Times list as well. Foley has published a total of ten books; four memoirs, four children's books and two novels.

After speaking at some of the United Stated most respected colleges and universities - including MIT, Syracuse University, Notre Dame and The University of Miami, Foley decided to take his verbal skills to the stand-up comedy stage in 2009. 2012 saw Foley earn rave reviews for his comedy sets at Just for Laughs in Montreal, and the Edinburgh (UK) Fringe Fest - the two largest comedy festivals in the world.

Ginger Billy is a hillbilly from the backwoods turned comedian and has been recognized as a heartthrob in the country community because of his incredible physique. Shirtless and tattoed, the Ginger Billy gives viewers a humorous look into life in rural Upstate South Carolina. And he's doing it all on his own.

For years he was a respiratory therapist. But one day, after the retirement of Dale Earnheart, Jr., he thought maybe he’d make a video. "Well, when he retired, I thought to myself, 'man, you know what? This would be something that, uh, all rednecks would love if I talked about," he said. “When I saw how many views it got, I thought to myself, you know what, this might be actually pretty cool. This might be something I want to try again." The next thing he knew he was doing stand-up. A manager signed him on and got him a gig at a casino.

After many delays -- ranging from band illnesses to scheduling conflicts, to the pandemic, to changes in personnel -- Brand X is thrilled to FINALLY get to return to Indy!

John Goodsall, Chris Clark and Scott Weinberger are all set to come back to Indy following their fantastic 2018 performance here. New to the band is bassist Ric Bierabracci, but Ric's credits range from Adrian Belew to Chick Corea, to Billy Cobham, Eddie Jobson and more.

Join us for a fantastic evening of jazz/rock fusion, prog and more.

The original seeds of Brand X were sown many years ago in London as players in a studio band for many of Brian Eno's infamous solo albums. Drummer Phil Collins and Bassist Percy Jones got to know each other through those sessions. Later Jones and John Goodsall officially formed Brand X. Brand X are often mentioned in the same circles as Weather Report, John McLaughlin, Chick Corea, Pat Metheny Group, Jaco Pastorius etc. They have influenced modern day bands like Dream Theatre and Phish. On recent tours, members of Metallica, The Dixie Dregs, Dream Theatre, King Crimson, Renaissance and others came out to catch BX in action.

The Red 4 Filth Tour
Alaska

  8:30p / doors 7:00p
  $25 (advance) / VIP MEET & GREET $55 / ULTRA $240 (advance)
  all ages


A bizarre cosmic collision propelled Alaska Thunderfuck 5000 to Earth in March 1966… and on to the fifth season of Logo TV’s RuPaul’s Drag Race in January 2013. Still radioactive, no one knows who or what she is yet, but no one cares, as long as she never returns to her native planet. Her age and species remain unknown to the public, but a few of her enemies claim to hold copies of her spawning record and universal passport.

After her spaceship crashed in the Matanuska Valley, a remote part of south-central Alaska, the U.S. government recovered an emaciated… make that, an emancipated alien, with a 1972 issue of Vanity Fair and a can of Tab, or that’s how the story goes. Why she needed an Elmer’s glue stick, no one has determined. She refuses to acknowledge it was in her possession. Few believe the wreckage was really smoldering, since magazines tend to burn, and cynics wonder if she was actually held captive in a research facility, or entertained by the night watchman until he got bored with her in the 1980s. She’s supposedly on the run from officials, but everyone knows they take off their uniforms and sneak into the clubs where she performs. Some turned into groupies and hang around long after the shows are over.

A well-traveled, campy extraterrestrial does have her perks and her irritations. Transients and drifters are directed to the nearest black hole via her pre-screw-you GPS navigation, and drug-addled layabouts are allowed to create their own black holes. She promises to upload each and everyone into the system. How dangerous can Thunderfuck be?

As dangerous as a black hole.

Watch this rare, magnificent being as she lights up televisions throughout the world on another of RuPaul’s extravaganzas. No, you won’t end up a cancer-stricken lab rat. The screen acts as a radiation shield to protect you from this renegade.

Greyson Chance

  7:00p / doors 6:00p
  $20 (advance) / MEET & GREET add $30 (advance)
  all ages


Singer/songwriter Greyson Chance is an emotive, pop-oriented artist known for his lyrical, often piano-based material. Chance first garnered attention online before breaking through with his 2011 debut, Hold on 'Til the Night, which hit number 29 on the Billboard 200. His sound has grown ever more nuanced, incorporating textured electronic production alongside his acoustic work.

Chance first began playing piano at age eight. In April 2010, a video of Chance performing Lady Gaga's Paparazzi at his middle-school talent show was uploaded to YouTube and went viral. It soon caught the attention of Ellen DeGeneres, who invited the 12-year-old to perform on her show, and eventually signed him to her then newly launched eleveneleven record label. A deal with Interscope followed, and in December 2010 he delivered his debut single, Waiting Outside the Lines. The full-length Hold on 'Til the Night followed in 2011 and cracked the Top 40 during its first week of release. The EP Truth Be Told, Pt. 1 arrived in 2012.

Chance continued to tour and record over the next few years. As he matured his voice deepened, and his taste shifted toward nuanced indie rock and alternative electronic pop. He showcased this sophisticated sound on his 2016 EP Somewhere Over My Head. Included on the set were the singles Afterlife Hit & Run and Back on the Wall. Also that year, he guested on tyDi and Jack Novak's dance track Oceans. Chance came out as gay in July 2017, making the announcement via social media and stating that he was happy and proud of who he was. The dramatic single Low followed that December. A spate of singles appeared over the next year including Lighthouse a collaboration with DJ/producer Fabian Mazur, Good as Gold and Twenty One.

In 2019, Chance delivered his sophomore full-length album, Portraits, which featured production by Willy Beaman, Christian Medice, and Todd Spadafore. Included was the single Shut Up. The EP Trophies arrives in June 2021, as did the stand-alone track Hellboy.
