"Emily Myren is making her mark on the Indianapolis music scene.  A sweet, beautiful emotional mark.  And thus far, of course, it is amazing. With youth firmly on her side, it will be very interesting to see where this lady goes with her style.  Currently in the studio, Emily needs to be heard live.  There is a certain level of passion and grace that fills the room as she performs." -Brother Brother Radio Cast

Pablo grow up in the "heartland" of the Midwest,  He started playing music in his early teens.....High School dances....under 21 get the jist.  After High School came an apprenticeship and a career as a pipefitter.  Soon after he was traveling the southern and western states working and playing gigs.  It was during much of this time that he found many of his experiences (stories and tales) to write songs.  On a trip back to Indiana in the 70's he met and became good friends with one of Indiana's finest singer/songwriters, Bill Wilson, who became his mentor.  He has spread his bag full of tales and songs over the past years from Denali Alaska to Tootsie Orchard Lounge in Nashville to Mexico.  As an interpreter of the songs he has learned along the way.  He has added his own style, his brand of humor, always heartfelt, but mostly just about life as we all know it.

Joy Caroline Mills is a songwriter, composer, recording engineer, multi-instrumentalist, singer, and producer.  She recently graduated from Ball State with a degree in Music Media Production.  Her latest work, Fever Dreams (2015), was written and recorded in West England during the fall of her senior year at Keele University.  The 6-song compilation charted at #4 on the NoiseTrade Pop Charts. Much to critics’ surprise, Mills wrote, performed, produced, engineered, mixed, and mastered her record entirely herself.

In January of 2016, Mills was offered a spot at a highly competitive music program in London.  In addition, her song "Recover" was included on the Beneflint Compilation CD to help water relief efforts in Flint, Michigan.

When she's not playing shows or writing music, she is active as a volunteer/guitar instructor for Girls Rock! Indianapolis.

Transylvanian Lip Treatment presents
Midnight Picture Show
USA 1975 | digital | Dir:  Jim Sharman | 100min | R

Saturday, May 14  |  Midnight  |  $6
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.
