14th ANNIVERSARY 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.

"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.

Anthony Michael Hall began his career in commercials and on stage as a child, and made his screen debut in 1980. His films with director-screenwriter John Hughes, beginning with the popular 1984 coming-of-age comedy Sixteen Candles, shaped his early career. Hall's next movies with Hughes were the teen classics The Breakfast Club and Weird Science, both in 1985. His performances as lovable geeks in these three films connected his name and face with the stereotype for an entire generation.

Hall diversified his roles to avoid becoming typecast as his geek persona, joining the cast of Saturday Night Live (1985–1986) and starring in films such as Out Of Bounds (1986), Johnny Be Good (1988), Edward Scissorhands (1990) and Six Degrees of Separation (1993). After a series of minor roles in the 1990s, his performance as Microsoft's Bill Gates in the 1999 film Pirates of Silicon Valley put him back in the spotlight. He had the starring role in the USA Network series The Dead Zone, from 2002 to 2007. During its run, the show was one of the highest-rated cable television series.

Legendary UK Psychedelic Rock band
GONG

  8:00p / doors 7:00p
  $30 / Premium Seating $55 (advance)
  all ages



Since its beginnings in 1969, GONG have released albums which created genres, defied genres, and taken people on musical journeys around the stars and back to Earth, all with a bit of "love, from Planet Gong".

Over the decades, with each new album and new tour, Gong have forged new musical pathways, with members moving in and out of the band as the muse would appear or depart. Along the way, Gong has brought influential kindred into the band including Daevid Allen, Steve Hillage, Didier Malherbe, Tim Blake, Pip Pyle, Pierre Moerlen, Theo Travis, Mike Howlett, Allan Holdsworth and Bill Bruford.

A renaissance of the band began in 2009, with Allen adding Ian East (woodwinds), Dave Sturt (bass), Fabio Golfetti (guitar) and Kavus Torabi (also on guitar) into Gong. Allen's life was brought to its earthly conclusion in 2015, but the band has continued with the addition of Cheb Nebbles on drums.

This is GONG today. Still exploring musical innovations, while still being pioneers of psychedelic space Prog rock.

Join us for a multi-media experience, in a rare USA appearance, with a band who defies description in a concert you'll never forget.

Walking With Ghost
    with Amy Bruni

  8:00p / doors 7:00p
  $25 / VIP $50 / Meet & Greet ADD $30 (advance)
  all ages (17+ suggested)


Amy Bruni, co-star and Executive Producer of the hit paranormal series Kindred Spirits, calls upon over 20 years of investigation experience to help people reclaim their homes and lives from the mysteries of the unknown. Amy's passion for helping others comes together with her love for paranormal exploration as she rejoins her partner in crime, Adam Berry, and forms a paranormal powerhouse aimed at helping families in crisis find answers from the world beyond the veil.

Prior to Kindred Spirits, Amy was a star of SYFY's popular paranormal program, Ghost Hunters. Joining the cast in 2008, Amy traveled the country exploring the most haunted locations in America while working as the team's historical researcher to give identity to the long forgotten spirits they encountered during their travels. After seven exciting years with the show, Amy exited to focus on her growing family and start her own paranormal travel company, Strange Escapes.

Her love of travel mixed with her passion for the unknown flourished as she now invites lovers of travel and mystery to try their hand at investigating some of the country’s most infamous haunts, including the Mt Washington Hotel, The Queen Mary, and The Stanley Hotel.

Even with her return to television with Kindred Spirits, Amy loves to stay busy and active within the paranormal community, continually finding new and exciting haunts for her travel business. She invites those looking to experience the bizarre and unknown to join her and other paranormal celebrity guests at her Strange Escapes throughout the year. In the rare instances that Amy finds a bit of free time from investigating or running her travel business, she enjoys scouring antique stores for spiritualist memorabilia, hitting the beach, and drinking wine. Though she stays busy, she’ll never say no to a good ghost hunt- or chardonnay.
