Tuesday, October 28th

the Indiana Electro-Music Group presents
Tatsuya Nakatani
Adam Riviere

Tuesday, October 28  |  7:00p  |  $10

Tatsuya Nakatani is a creative artist originally from Osaka, Japan.  He has been residing in the USA since 1994 and is currently based in Easton, Pennsylvania.  Since the late 1990s, Mr. Nakatani has released over sixty recordings in the USA and Europe and has performed countless solo percussion concerts through intensive touring.  He has also collaborated with hundreds of other artists internationally and presented masterclasses, workshops and lectures across the USA and around the world.

Nakatani's approach to music is visceral, non-linear and intuitively primitive, expressing an unusually strong spirit while avoiding any categorization.  He creates sound via both traditional and extended percussion techniques, utilizing drums, bowed gongs, cymbals, singing bowls, metal objects and bells, as well as various sticks, kitchen tools and homemade bows, all of which manifest in anintense and organic music that represents a very personal sonic world.  His approach is steeped in the sensibilities of free improvisation, experimental music, jazz, rock, and noise, and yet retains the sense of space and quiet beauty found in traditional Japanese folk music.  His percussion instruments can imitate the sounds of a trumpet, a stringed instrumentor an electronic device to the extent that it becomes difficult to recognize the source of the sound.  He has devoted himself to a musical aesthetic where rhythm gives way to pulse, often in a way that is not always audible or visible, in currents that incorporate silence and texture.Nakatani’s primary music activities include solo percussion performance, N.G.O. (Nakatani Gong Orchestra) and collaborations with musicians and dancers both in live performance and recordings.

AnC Movies presents
Science, Sex and the Ladies
The True Story of Female Orgasm
USA 2013 | digital | Dir:  B Aaron, C Borowicz, T Borowicz | 98min | NR

Thursday, November 6  |  7:30p  |  $6 / $8 (dos)

Out of the land of Kinsey from the Heartland of America, comes a frank, irreverent and very necessary documentary.  Science, Sex, and the Ladies is humorous but serious with a simple yet far reaching argument; our (mis)understanding of the female orgasm has broken our sexual cultural.  By looking back through the hallmarks of sexual research that define our scientific and cultural understanding of sex and orgasm, and by taking a witty look at the history and society that shaped them, the film discusses not only how we ended up this way but most importantly why we need to change.
Science, Sex, and the Ladies was researched, written and created right here in Central Indiana over a period of 8 years.  It's been a long time in the making, and we're excited to finally share it with the city that helped build it!

Come out to see a movie you won't forget, drink some fabulous local brew, and enjoy some time with friends!

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.
