Midnight / doors 11:00p  |  $7

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.

Formed in late 2014, Settle Your Scores has hit the ground running and shown no signs of slowing down.  Releasing their first full-length album at the beginning of 2016, the Ohio natives quickly made a name for themselves, touring frequently across the US.

Born in late 2012, Sink the Ship came out swinging when they arrived on the scene. Being heavily influenced by both post hardcore bands and today's metal artist they were able to harness a sound that had one foot in the past and the other in the future, making it a relatable sound for today's metal fans.

In 2014 the band released their debut EP titled "Reflections".  The EP is a kaleidoscope of catchy guitar riffs, passionate lyrics and heavy driven drums meshing together to create their unique sound, blending pop, metal and hardcore.
Now on April 27 get Sink the Ship's latest album, "Persevere".  :Check our the new music video from the album at New Noice magazine

Americana is the perfect concoction of American roots music that comprises our musical ethos as we know it today. It is something so engrained in our history, folklore, tradition, and mythology that it is not as simple as just "becoming" Americana, but rather, it is something that you are born into. It's that old cast-iron Coca-Cola sign that's been in your neighbor's shed for 50 years, a banjo and a Fender telecaster playing together, a 1955 Chevy with a modern stereo.

There are few artists that can truly encapsulate the essence and true range of Americana like Muscle Shoals artist Hannah Aldridge, whose musical pedigree precedes her and speaks for itself.

Hannah Aldridge is the daughter of Alabama Music Hall of Famer Walt Aldridge, who is one of the most prolific songwriters of the modern musical era.  Twice named by Billboard magazine as one of the Top Country Songwriters of the year, ASCAP Songwriter of the Year, and countless Number One and Top Ten hits recorded by the likes of Lou Reed, Reba McEntire, Travis Tritt, Earl Thomas Conley, Ricky Van Shelton, Ronnie Milsap, and Conway Twitty.

With sounds ranging from blues in the Mississippi Delta to the dusty, dixieland jazz sounds from New Orleans, the musical stylings of Muscle Shoals on up to the primitive roots of American Country music, Hannah Aldridge leaves no inspiration or influence untapped.  Besides being a seasoned staff songwriter for BAR Music with song placements in television shows like Hart of Dixie(CW) and recognition from American Songwriter as well as Relix Magazine, her vocal talents rarely go unrecognized, something that lends itself to being true to the Americana methodology of not using excessive "talent-enhancing" techniques in the studio or live. Both her natural and cultivated talent help her to emote with both listeners and musicians alike on a truly organic level. Hannah has toured all across the United States and Europe gaining a grassroots movement of fans that wait in silent adoration of the return of their Americana Heir Apparent Princess of Muscle Shoals.

Keith McGill

8:00p / doors 7:00p  |  $15 advance / VIP $25


Keith McGill is clever, insightful, and a little bit eye-opening. His comedy is truth with a twist.  He has a style that is smooth and temperate, and lacks any gaudy gimmicks or catch phrases, making him one of the best standup acts within earshot...  His material is positive and PG-13, yet still intelligently critical of the comical absurdities [of life]...This Louisville native is impossible not to like.  Keith was also a Standup NBC Competition finalist.  As well as touring internationally on Royal Caribbean and Holland America Cruise Lines, Keith has appeared on BET, CMT, LAUGHS on FOX and is a Bob and Tom Show favorite, and a much sought-after entertainer for corporate events.

Erik Stolhanske is an actor, writer and producer and member of the comedy group Broken Lizard, probably best known for his role as “Rabbit” in the hit comedy Super Troopers.

Erik graduated from Colgate in 1991.  He and fellow college friends Jay, Kevin, Paul, and Steve shared an interest in sketch comedy, and formed the comedy group “Charred Goosebeak”.  After graduating, they moved their group to New York City and changed its name to “Broken Lizard”.  Stolhanske has written, produced and starred in all of Broken Lizards’ films – including Puddle Cruiser, Super Troopers,Club Dread, Beerfest, and their latest release The Slammin’ Salmon – a comedy about one night in a restaurant owned and deplorably operated by former Heavy Weight Champion, Cleon Salmon (played by the Academy Award Nominated actor Michael Clarke Duncan), and staffed by Broken Lizard. Stolhanske also appears in The Onion Movie, The Sweetest Thing and Watching The Detectives.  On television, Erik can be seen on the HBO critically acclaimed series Curb Your Enthusiasm and Six Feet Under as well as on the Comedy Central special Broken Lizard Stands Up.

He was born without a fibula. He overcame his disability to become one of Hollywood’s most popular comedians and has surprised many of his fans with his appearance in the popular exercise program P90X.  He is now speaking to audiences across the country, telling his poignant and often humorous story of overcoming obstacles and persevering, even when the odds are stacked against you.

Upchurch The Redneck
funnier than a chili dog fart in a space suit

8:00p / doors 7:00p  |  $30 advance / VIP $60


Ryan Edward Upchurch was born in Cheetham County TN on Mat 24th 1991.  He comes from a close family full of humor which led him to become the hilarious redneck comedian we know today.  In 2014, while hanging with some friends Ryan started creating videos as his character "Upchurch The Redneck" within four months time he gained over 100,000 fans.  In less than a year he hit over a million fans on social media.

In some of his famous videos, Ryan would sing bits of his favorite country songs.  Fans couldn’t get enough and would beg for more.  In July, 2014 Ryan put out his first single “Raise Hell and Eat Cornbread” which started the RHEC craze.  Before long, Ryan had his own RHEC clothing line.  Redneck Nation quickly sponsored the clothing line and in no time RHEC merchandise became popular.

It seems everything Ryan touches turns to gold. He has such a kind heart and outgoing personally, he is just easy to love.  In 2015, he joined the team of Rise & Stand to help the organization raise awareness about bullying and labeling.  He spends a good majority of his time mentoring fans in need. Recently, Ryan released his hick-hop rap album “Cheatham County”.  The album was in the top 25 before even hitting shelves.
