VALENTNE SHOW

  Midnight / doors 11:00p
  $8 (advance) / $10 (at the door)
 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.

Avant Night present
Sleepytime Gorilla Museum
CHEER-ACCIDENT
The Isolation Tank Ensemble

  7:00p / doors 6:00p
  $25 (advance)
  all ages


The most gloriously uncategorizable American band in existence, has rebanded and will be touring North America!

Back in 2011, amid cries of protest and disbelief, the Sleepytime Gorilla Museum closed its doors and disbanded indefinitely. Persistent rumors about a posthumous album flew across Sleepytime's global community for years before eventually settling into the tall grass of time like a swarm of cicadas at summer's end. "Sperm swam. Eggs applauded. Babies hatched. Other bands were born," recalls curator Matthias Bossi. Labels and alliances perished. Ailments festered. Several beloved friends and family members passed away. "The SGM fields lay fallow for a decade and more." Only now, a baker's dozen years later, is the buzz rising once again.

The Museum, comprised of multi-instrumentalists and rotating vocalists Nils Frykdahl, Carla Kihlstedt, Michael “Iago” Mellender, Matthias Bossi, and Dan Rathbun, plays an arsenal of instruments ranging from the somewhat standard (drums, electric guitars, bass, electric violin) to the rare (bass harmonica, nyckelharpa, marxophone) to the homemade (Slide-Piano Log, Electric Pancreas, Pedal-Action Wiggler). The group has consistently evaded easy categorization, garnering accolades from across the aisles of contemporary classical music, prog rock, industrial music, metal, avant-garde improv, and more. Their music, in turns bashing and bucolic, enveloping and unsettling, tends towards long-form epics interspersed with mysterious field recordings.

Rock against rock and rejoice! The Museum will re-open soon for one day only in Indianapolis!

Hailing from the singularly vibrant musical hotbed known as Chicago, CHEER-ACCIDENT has been a creative, vital force in rock music for over 30 years. They constantly strive to surprise their audiences and themselves through relentless reinvention. From dreamy pop to angular art-rock, CHEER-ACCIDENT strikes a powerful balance between personalized and unique studio wizardry and the visceral excitement of a well-honed, explosive live rock band. The band is currently a septet, comprising of various members who have come and gone throughout the past two decades. Their body of work is unparalleled in its ambition and originality, and their most recent releases, "Putting Off Death" and “Here Comes The Sunset” (to name just two, on Cuneiform and Skin Graft, respectively) demonstrate how the band continues to improve with each passing year.

The Isolation Tank Ensemble are a cinematic instrumental six-piece hailing from around the Louisville area. Their collective insouciance about the trappings of genre has bred a signature sound coined as "trash prog". You're going to either like them or your crops will die. The choice is yours

"Gomes is a power player who is at his best when his gear is in the scorched earth between blues and rock. After all, it's the electric guitar; sometimes tickling it is not enough." - Guitar World

With a guitar slung over his shoulder and the amps turned up full tilt, Anthony Gomes electrifies blues and rock at a 21st century crossroads of his own. The Canadian vocalist, guitarist, songwriter and producer wails with all the force of a hurricane in the Mississippi Delta and enough fret-burning fireworks to leave his strings in flames.

Over the years, he's toppled the Billboard Blues Chart at #1, earned the endorsement of legends such as B.B. King, tallied tens of millions of streams, and packed shows on multiple continents. In 2022, he makes his Rat Pak Records debut with High Voltage Blues, amplifying his soul and spirit like never before.

Looking for an actual 21st Century guitar hero? Here he is.

Secondhand Shows present
The Bygones
Allison Young and Joshua Lee Turner

  7:30p / doors 6:30p
  $20 (advance) / $25 (day of show)
  all ages


The Bygones are an indie folk duo consisting of Allison Young and Joshua Lee Turner. Their sound ties together unexpected genres, from traditional jazz to 70's singer-songwriter, classic country to bossa nova. Josh's classical guitar background and ear for vocal harmony provide the underpinning for Allison's powerful songwriting and nostalgic voice, in duo arrangements which are intricate yet accessible, classic yet fresh.

Josh and Allison first worked together in 2018, recording a cover of Willie Nelson’s "Crazy", which now has over 4 million YouTube views. They soon realized that their musical styles were a natural fit for one another, and in 2022 they recorded their first EP, May 9-12, which they toured to sold out audiences across the UK later that year.

Josh and Allison made their US debut as The Bygones in 2023, selling out shows in New York City and Nashville. This show will be part of a national tour in support of their first full-length album of original music, coming out Spring 2024.
