Trailor 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.

Most unfamiliar with Lancaster County, Pennsylvania typically associate it with sprawling rural environments and Amish populations.  Those who have spent time in the central PA location can speak of an entirely different portrait of Lancaster.  They have experienced the "big city" atmosphere mixed with the earnest hard work ethos of a small town.  They know of the thriving and vibrant downtown arts and music scene, which has produced a number of ground breaking local music acts.  They can also tell you the benefit of its close proximity to 5 major US cities.  It is this blend of circumstances that established the creative approach, broad vision, and DIY principles of This Or The Apocalypse.  :They are a band that exhibits the patience and dedication to step outside the box to create something both heavy and unique.  Their craft of song is intelligent, scathing, honest and even uplifting.

“While the core of the songs retain the trademark TOTA sound, each member made a commitment to push their individual arrangements and performances well beyond any previously established boundaries.  The synergy between the band and the co producers was the perfect storm of aggressive and creative youth coupled with experience and wisdom.  The blistering ensemble of tracks will undoubtedly blaze a new path for the band and turn the world of aggressive music upside down.

Thursday, September 4  |  7:00p  |  $12 / $15  (dos)

Founded in 2004, the New Hampshire-based screamo quintet Our Last Night is comprised of childhood friends Trevor Wentworth (vocals), Matt Wentworth (guitar, vocals), Alex Woodrow (bass), Colin Perry (guitar), and Tim Molloy (drums).  Combining the melodic structures of emo with the guttural sounds of hardcore, Our Last Night sporadically toured the New England area for three years, releasing several EPs and self-made demos along the way.  These recordings found their way to Epitaph Records, where label owner Brett Gurewitz took interest in the band's maturity and wide-ranging vocals.  The label signed Our Last Night in the summer of 2007, and the group soon headed west to record its debut album.  Completed later that year, The Ghosts Among Us was released in early 2008, followed quickly two years later by We Will All Evolve in 2010. For their next album the band began to refine their sound, moving towards a more melodic, post-hardcore with few metal moments on their third album, 2012's Age of Ignorance.
