8:00p / doors 7:30p  |  free ($5 suggested)


Eric Pedigo aspire to inspire. To connect. To share. To spark joy.  To give a piece of momentary happiness.  His song is his island. he wants others to feel engaged the way he does when he listen to songs he love. Alive.

Music is the photographs of our origin.  A series of vibrations that can soothe or ignite the soul.  It can invoke a positive feeling in another without physical contact.  It's the reminder that we are or want to be connected.   Eric realizes that he may be telling many of the same stories that have always told. He's telling his version.   His own experience.  With his voice. Stories of loss, love, regression, growth, dissonance and clarity.

These past 4 years have been a time of personal growth, development and rediscovery.  Eric has been struggling with his vision for his music because of all the outside noise of everyday life. think he' finally started to see things a little more clearly.  He finally caught some traction and have a collection of songs that He's proud to unleash.

5:50p / doors 5:00p  |  $8 at the door

In the midst of a failing project called Cosmic Fox; Hunter Caudill and Jack Wegert decided to record a single with Patrick Coyle (a close friend of Hunters growing up). Titling it; "My Weekend Doesn't Start Till Midnight" due to everyone working 2nd shift jobs at the time. On January 9th they went to New Albany, Indiana to record with Jet-lag Studios.  While finishing up on the new mix, the unfinished band started looking around for a drummer.  Austen Allgeier was soon recruited in time for the release in March 2016.

Throughout 2016 the band made progress in the Louisville scene, for being so young, started gaining momentum in followers and began to tour in August that same year.  While losing Patrick due to schedule conflicts, Next Attempt for the entirety of the closing year stayed a 3-Piece Pop/Punk band.

In the beginning of 2017, the band re-instated Patrick as a guitarist and began working on their EP for the upcoming year.  On January 13th, they traveled up to Indianapolis to record with Threshold Productions for a 6-Track EP which has yet to be released.

Midnight Picture Show

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.

HIDE YOUR GHOST TOUR
Sawyer Fredericks
Guest

7:00p / doors 6:30p  |  $20

Eighteen year old singer-songwriter Sawyer Fredericks, hailing from his family's farm in central New York State, is fast establishing himself as an authentic, original, Americana artist with an old soul.  His deep, beyond-his-years lyrics and melodies, raw, soulful vocals, and powerful live performances have attracted an ever growing number of devoted fans of all ages, selling out shows throughout the US.  As a folk/blues singer-songwriter, who cut his teeth at local farmers markets, open mics, and iconic New York venues like Caffe Lena, the Towne Crier Cafe, and The Bitter End, Sawyer seemed an unlikely match for reality tv, but quickly won over broad audiences with his genuine delivery and unique arrangements of classic songs, going on to win season 8 of NBC's The Voice.  Fresh from that whirlwind, Sawyer went forward with the release of his major label debut, A Good Storm, with Republic Records, an impressive blend of soulful Folk, blues, and rock, entirely written or cowritten by Sawyer.  His 2016 A Good Storm Tour included 62 shows across the US.  For 2017, Sawyer has once again gone independent, is busy crafting his sophomore offering, with full artistic freedom, and continuing to tour.

#DonnerReunion

American Murder Song present
The Donner Family Reunion Tour

7:00p VIP / 7:45p GA  |  $30 / $65 VIP / $250 Feast (SOLD OUT)


Cult musical filmmakers Terrance Zdunich and Saar Hendelman welcome you to AMERICAN MURDER SONG
.  Embark with them on “a playful and murderous odyssey through the territories of American identity, looming mortality, and divine judgment” (Sing Out).

Having won the hearts of midnight movie audiences by starring in and co-creating the Lionsgate film sensation REPO! THE GENETIC OPERA—hailed as “this generation’s Rocky Horror Picture Show” (Hollywood Reporter) and counted amongst The 25 Best Cult Movies Of All Time by a Rolling Stone Readers’ poll—Terrance teamed up with Saar to craft the music and tales for the film series THE DEVIL’S CARNIVAL.  :It was declared “One of the single greatest Devil-centric stories every told” (Ain’t It Cool News). In these films, they collaborated with the Saw series horror director Darren Lynn Bousman and performers ranging from Joan Jett to Tech N9ne to David Hasselhoff.

From there, the songwriting and performing duo veered into the dusty heart of America with AMERICAN MURDER SONG, a collection of original Murder Ballads that explore history through a sensational rogues’ gallery of murderesses and cutthroats.

During AMERICAN MURDER SONG’s debut year, Terrance and Saar led audiences back in time to 1816, to the infamous inn that served as the hunting ground for America’s first female serial killer, pretty Lavinia Fisher.  Collaborating with the likes of Chibi from The Birthday Massacre, Arch Enemy’s Alissa White-Gluz and Scotty Morris of the legendary swing revival act Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, they produced a series of cinematic concept albums and music videos, and traveled the country with The American Wake Tour.

Now, inspired by 1960’s television spook shows, they have imagined the one and only true retelling of The Donner Party experience via the lens of their own, fictional Twilight Zone style show: The Black Wagon.

#SLEDGE-O-MATIC

Joke's On You Comedy Tour
GALLAGHER
Artie Fletcher

7:00p / doors 6:00p  |  $19 / VIP $29 advance


Leo Anthony Gallagher was born in North Carolina but he grew up in Florida.  After completing college, Gallagher started working as a musician and comedian for Jim Stafford.  The duo traveled to California where Gallagher decided to perform by himself.  He started visiting the Ice House and The Comedy Store to find performance slots.  When he approached The Tonight Show, he was refused, not once but several times as show host Johnny Carson was not very fond of prop comedy.  However, Gallagher did make a number of appearances on the show in Carson’s absence when other guests were hosting the show.

Gallagher is an American comedian and prop comic, known for smashing watermelons as part of his act.  His signature sketch is a pitch for the "Sledge-O-Matic," a large wooden mallet that he uses to smash a variety of food items and other objects, culminating with a watermelon.  Gallagher is remembered as one of the best American comedians from the 80s.  Though he performed only fourteen comedy specials for Showtime, each episode has been broadcast innumerable times, especially on Comedy Central.
