“Look, we just write pop songs that make us feel things,” laughs Dane Allen, trying to explain the motive behind his alternative/pop group, Loyals.  “We aren’t congealed with this big message.  Obviously we can change our minds down the road, but that’s not who we are now.”

The band’s lack of pretension is as refreshing as it is uncommon, their self-assuredness a most likely side effect of the years they’ve spent playing together.  “We met when we were teenagers,” explains Allen of fellow bandmates Andrew Gomez and Evan Thon.  “We’ve stuck with each other ever since.” The decade long friendship not only earned them their moniker, but—through practice and experimentation—aided in the cultivation of a pop group that masters the genre.

Their self titled record—brimming with buoyant melodies and standout hooks—is a playful demonstration of everything pop.  The self-titled debut pays homage to their R&B and alternative rock influencers while maintaining an attitude all its own.  “This record is a byproduct of our daily lives,” explains Allen.  “It’s therapeutic to write what you feel in the moment, whether you’re sad, or you’re in love, or you just don’t care. We aren’t curated, we just write what we feel.”

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.

 7:30p / doors 7:00p  |  $25 / $60 VIP meet & greet


Kings Kaleidoscope and Special Guests embark on their first nationwide tour, covering 25 US cities promoting their newest album, "ZEAL".

Kings Kaleidoschope has a history of breaking convention.   The band first met at church, reimagining hymns and ecclesial melodies.  But what started under lofted ceilings soon broke through, reaching the ready ears of crowds and critics. Five EPs and two critically-acclaimed LPs later (both landing in the top 10 on Billboard's gospel chart), King's continues to reinvent their medium.  Genre-bending rhythms, bold arrangements, and soaring melodies underscore the diverse influences within the band.  Chad Gardner leads the collective of friends; up to ten members strong, and all hands stretch the canvas until it sings.  Their latest project, “The Beauty Between,” is another transformation, but what remains true—and what resonates with fans—is the creative core:  an honest expression of the ache, love, and color of a life redeemed.
