Midnight Picture Show
USA 1975 | digital | Dir:  Jim Sharman | 100min | R

HOLIDAY SHOW

Midnight / doors 11:00p  |  $7 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.

#SongwritersCircle

NUVO Members Pick
the Irving Theater welcomes
Cole Woodruff (Indianapolis)
Meghan Martin (Indianapolis)
Baby Ocho (Indianapolis)
Emily Lehman (Indianapolis)

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


While Americana Folk Singer/songwriter, Cole Woodruff accompanies himself expressively on guitar and harmonica,  it’s his dynamic voice that soothes and his powerful lyrics that mend hearts.

Cole turns each venue into his own living room, and each listener into a new friend, with a disarming personality and his honest performance.  Aside from being a songwriter, he is simply a gem of uniqueness and authenticity.

Holding tough with audiences young and old over the years, he’s earned every listener he’s acquired from simply following his passion. Combining masterful storytelling, poignant lyrics, and powerful vocal ability, Cole’s music welcomes everyone who wants to engage. Reminiscent of 60s/70s folk, his songs are messages of hope for a weary world.

6:30p / doors 6:00p  |  $10 at the door

After years of trying to start bands but failing to find anyone serious about music, Sean Shepard (Guitarist/Vocals) decided to go it alone in the studio and record some songs that he had written over the years. &bnsp;The result was a six song EP he titled “Wolves & Sheep” under the band name Antighost.  Shepard then used the EP to find musicians interested in forming a band.  He met and auditioned Dylan Vanderson (Drums) and after a year of playing shows with various bass players, the two met Ben Jazwinski (Bass) and the final piece of Antighost fell into place.

Antighost's debut EP exploded on the airwaves all across the country as the band toured extensively.  Based out of Grand Rapids, word quickly spread of Antighost's high energy and raw presence.  The band has worked tirelessly to perfect their performance and sound, bringing forth a new wave of alternative rock rooted in the grunge, emo and punk eras.

Antighost followed up "Wolves & Sheep" with their debut album "Creatures" a hard hitting 15 track concept record.  Despite the bands young age they toured tirelessly across the Midwest, bringing "Creatures" state to state, and igniting stages along the way.  Praised for their live presence and lyrical content, Antighost have proven rock and roll is far from dead.

#CreedIndy

An Evening of Music and Comedy
Creed Bratten

8:00p  |  $20/ VIP $60 advance

Fans of NBC’s The Office best know Creed Bratten as the disturbingly hilarious, popular character of the same name.   What most do not know is, not only has he been acting since the late 60s in films such as Mask and Heart Like a Wheel, he’s a bona fide classic rocker extraordinaire and a founding member of the legendary rock band The Grass Roots – makers of hits such as “Let’s Live for Today” and “Midnight Confessions”.

Since joining the cast of The Office, Bratton released a trio of solo albums – 2008’s Creed Bratton, 2010’s Bounce Back and 2012’s Tell Me About It.  Even with his busy TV acting schedule, including "Garfunkle and Oats," "Franklin and Bash," "Liz and Dick," and in films such as "Terri", "The Sound of Magic" and "The Ghastly Love of Johnny X," Brattonremains extremely active in music.  His live one man show is a perfect example of Creed's ability to combine his immense musical talents with his unique, one of a kind comedic mind.
