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.

Shipwreck Karpathos is a post-rock band from Indianapolis.  inspired by the likes of Russian Circles, Explosions in the Sky, and MONO, mixed with elements of post-hardcore acts like Refused, Envy, Thursday, and Touché Amoré, and even pulling in influence from minimalists like Philip Glass and Glenn Branca.

For the last couple of years the band has been working on an album called "Bring Down the Sky".  There has been so much time, and energy, and a fair amount of tears, frustration, and late nights that have gone into the writing of this album. It has been a long hard road, but as a result it has turned into something even better than they could ever have hoped.   They have never been more proud of anything then this collection of seven songs. And on top of the album they will also be doing a digital release of a collection of B-sides, live tracks, and ambient songs called "Return to Silence".

The Receiver

Tuesday July 19  |  7:00p  |  FREE

The Receiver is brothers Casey (keyboards, bass, vocals) and Jesse Cooper (drums, vocals) from Columbus, Ohio.  Formed in 2005, the brothers quickly expanded on ideas composed the previous year by Casey for his senior thesis in music composition studies at The Ohio State University.  After a few live performances, the band was picked up by New York-based Stunning Models On Display Records.  With the label’s support, the band finished the recording of their debut album “Decades” in 2006 and celebrated its release later that year with extensive touring throughout North America. Once home, Casey began the near 2-year writing process for their follow-up album “Length of Arms”.  The sophomore effort had its release in late 2009 on Vital Music Records.  The band recently signed with Kscope Records (Steven Wilson, Porcupine Tree, Engineers) who released their self-produced third album "All Burn" to critical acclaim in June 2015.
