Their music has a very large and refreshingly organic sound that follows in the many traditions of the yester-year of Rock N Roll, thus gaining them the reputation of being a hard rock version of Fleetwood Mac, just dirtier. They impart the truest essence of Rock n' Roll through guitar driven licks, road dog attitudes, and a high energy, professional live performance!

The Almas have released their newest full length album Truth Sells which will be followed by a multiple tours through out 2021. The band plans to release music videos and new merch in support of the new album.

hosted by
SAMMY TERRY

  8:00p / doors 7:00p
  $10 movie / $20 Meet & Greet with Sammy Terry
  all ages


This iconic horror film follows the obsessed scientist Dr. Henry Frankenstein (Colin Clive) as he attempts to create life by assembling a creature from body parts of the deceased. Aided by his loyal misshapen assistant, Fritz (Dwight Frye), Frankenstein succeeds in animating his monster (Boris Karloff), but, confused and traumatized, it escapes into the countryside and begins to wreak havoc. Frankenstein searches for the elusive being, and eventually must confront his tormented creation.


Brought to Life (or rather Death) in 1962 by Robert Carter, SAMMY TERRY - say it fast! - has been haunting the TV airwaves of Indiana for decades. Countless families remember spending their Friday nights watching Nightmare Theater, hosted by Sammy Terry.

Even though the local weekly TV program ended in 1989, generations of Hoosiers still wake with a start, hearing the creak of the coffin and that sinister, pale-faced ghoul's ominous laugh in their nightmares. Today, Sammy Terry continues to lurk in the deep, dark recesses of our minds, ready to scare and delight fans old and new since in 2010, Robert passed his cape down to his son, Mark Carter.

#MickFoleyIndy

Mad Hatter Shows present
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.
