Wednesday, April 15  |  7:00p  |  $5 / $7 (dos)

Rosedale is not a hipster band. (What the hell is a hipster anyways?).  Rosedale is not a hardcore band, not a boy band, he is not known for his tattoos, he doesn't star on some reality show, and he's not an artist who hinges his future on pitchfork declaring he is the hot new sound...and he is ok with that.  Rosedale is the musical outlet for Mike Liorti.  A 6 foot 9 friendly giant who can play piano,guitar and sing like a juggernaut.  He plays what most would call aggressive pop music, and he does it because he loves it.  He doesn't care if it's not your cup of tea...but if you're thirsty he's brewing up a new pot for you.

HOLOGRAMANIA 2015

Saturday, April 18  |  7:30p  |  $8 / $10 (dos)

The Indianapolis based duo, I-Exist, have transcended the limits of Modern Rock.  Through an uncompromising focus on creativity, the band have found a sound all their own featuring delicate ambient soundscapes, soaring vocal melodies, and heart pounding rhythmic patterns.  After performing over 100 shows across 42 states on their Human Hologram Tour in 2014, I-Exist is alive now more than ever.

Starting out as a concept from a cabin in the middle of the woods, which Brian Lenington (vocals, synth, guitar, cello) called home at the time, I-Exist found it's core in 2007 with Buddy Jackson (guitar, vocals), Cameron Bailey (drums, vocals), and Jon Bolotte (bass, vocals).  The band took it's first major swing with their debut full length album in 2009 titled "Within Imagination", which scored their single "Fire Fly" on the Major Motion Picture Soundtrack "SAW 3D: The Final Chapter" as well as a music video feature for "Pass Out" on the movie's Blu Ray / DVD release.  The band rode the success of that release beginning with a national tour in the Spring of 2010 and into 2011.

Never settling for the status quo, the group set out to do the unthinkable with their next release.  In 2012, I-Exist announced that they would be unleashing an epic, four-volume concept album entitled Humanity which released alongside each season of that year.  Spanning 24 tracks, the collection became a force of its own, bringing the listener into a world rarely achieved in rock music. Narrated by voice actor Adam Crowe, "Humanity" pushed the band's sound beyond all previous boundaries with cello tracks, hand percussion, and orchestral scores.  The massive songs instantly caught fire on YouTube, which have gone viral through FaZe Clan, OpticNation, and other channels which have gained the band over two million plays.  The momentum carried into the next year as Ernie Ball selected the group to play Van's Warped Tour 2013.

Always evolving, I-Exist made a massive change in 2014 in order to fulfill their dream of traveling the globe. Going from a four-piece to a duo, the band used all of their imaginary and technological prowess to create a state-of-the-art stage performance featuring full size holographic players.  The innovative show took the band across the entire United States while turning heads at over 100 shows that year.  They even got the attention of Jeff Hanson (former manager of Creed, Paramore, and Sevendust) who brought the single “Giving My Life” into full rotation on SiriusXM Octane.

On January 1st, 2015, the band announced another breakthrough album concept. Consciousness, an ambitious three-year trilogy, promises listeners to “expect the unexpected” and marks the beginning of a “breakthrough sound of the future”.

NYC'S guitar-driven, anthemic rock band Eve To Adam is not content to re-hash the same old song of yesterday, in the name of the all-mighty buck.  They understand their why: To reignite Rock.  After four studio albums, a decade of touring, and surviving a number of industry shifts, they also know where the buck stops.  And this isn't a band that's passing it along.  They've remained consistent in their vision, consistent in their intention, and consistent in their determination to play it forward, regardless of the current trend in fashion, style or fad of the day.

Eve To Adam has upped-the-ante on their fourth, game-changing release Locked & Loaded (3-For-5/MRI/Sony Red), by bringing in the best of the best to co-write, produce and collaborate on this sonic journey.  New single "IMMORTAL" was co-written and produced by Dave Bassett (Halestorm, Shinedown) with additional production by Michael “Elvis” Baskette.  "IMMORTAL" is impacting radio now and has been featured on iTunes "New & Noteworthy," The epic, anthem, which is highly cinematic in tone, is a tribute to heroic legacies.

Sunday, April 26  |  6:00p  |  $10 (dos)

This band of teenagers grew up as best friends that hope to someday revolutionize the meaning of music.

Fairview has been a band since 2010 who now thrives as an up and coming pop/rock band playing shows in and out-of state.  This group of best friends started making music together during high school.  Although they all attended different schools, they still found time to hang out and practice.

Members Matt (lead vocals and rhythm guitar), Lizzy (Lead vocals) and Cesar (Lead guitar) all met at a Catholic elementary school called St. Joseph's;  thus creating their everlasting friendship.  It wasn't until high school that they met Becca (violinist), who completed their four member band. But they needed a name!

The four friends would sit around the kitchen table with random books opening to random pages to find words to make up a name.  Some of the things that came out of that experience were definitely memorable, but not band-name worthy.

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

Saturday, May 9  |  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.
