Bentley Caldwell

Saturday, May 16  |  8:00p  |  $10 / $12 dos

Tenasie Bowe & Matt Keyler, combining their songwriting and performance skills to create a unique and refreshing sound, make up the Americana/Pop/Country duo Tenasie.  Coming from two different sides of the country (Bowe, Las Vegas and Keyler, Indianapolis), they both moved to Nashville in pursuit of furthering their solo careers. First meeting in January 2013, later that spring they played in their first writer’s round together and felt an instant chemistry through similar writing styles and an undeniable blend of their voices.  Immediately the two began writing together and forming a band to perform as the new act “Tenasie".  In the past year, they have earned the title of "Best Country Duo/Group" of 2013 and 2014 by the Nashville Independent Music Awards, as well as " Best Country Group" and "Best Americana Group" of 2014 by the International Music and Entertainment Association.  Currently they are performing their debut EP locally and nationally!

Most artists have a clear concept of their genre and writing style. But every once in a while, an artist comes along as an exception, and transcends genres.  Bentley Caldwell is such an artist.

Based in Nashville, but a native son of Kentucky, Bentley Caldwell is a singer-songwriter not to be overlooked. Genuine and deep-knitted, his lyrics fit seamlessly into his music, which is best described as a special blend of soul, blues, and folk.  Bentley’s music is simple and beautiful, yet haunting and heartfelt, beckoning comparisons to artists like Ben Harper, Ray LaMontagne, and Amos Lee.

In March of 2014, Bentley released his first EP, A Place to Be, garnering great response.  A Place to Be has been noted as “soulful, smooth, deep, and meaningful.”  In short, Bentley Caldwell is a breath of fresh air in the world of music.

"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

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


Saturday, June 13  |  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.
