the Irving Theater welcomes
DREAMERS
The Kickback

Sunday, March 29  |  7:00p  |  $12

Prepare to embark on a journey with DREAMERS, with their unique brand of grunge that is nostalgic for a space somewhere between art-school eccentric and the late 1970s punk scene.  Drawing inspiration from the likes of John Lennon and David Lynch, DREAMERS first sent their kaleidoscopic sound out into the universe with their self-titled debut EP (November 18, 2014) and now return with their highly anticipated follow up,  This Album Does Not Exist, due in late Summer of 2015.

Their colorfully passionate music tugged at heartstrings and had tastemakers dancing around the room all in one fell swoop, with praise pouring in from the likes of Billboard, Spin, Alternative Press, Vice NOISEY, Guitar World, and major buzz from the blogosphere and HypeM heavy hitters like The Wild Honey Pie, Earmilk and Baeble.  Their lead single “Wolves” has been in full rotation on SiriusXM’s AltNation for over 10 weeks and has climbed the Alt18 Countdown (based on fan votes) - where it has remained for 8 weeks, peaking at #7.  It has also received spins on KROQ and reached #2 on alternative specialty radio's FMQB and KKBB charts.The band has shared the stage with indie rock royalty including The Vaccines,  The 1975, Bear Hands, Walk The Moon, Oberhofer, Broncho and will be the direct support on a winter tour Public Service Broadcasting.  Not band for an unsigned indie band, huh?

Comprised of Nick Wold (vocals, guitar), Chris Bagamery (drums, backup vocals), and Nelson (bass, backup vocals) DREAMERS are (for the meantime) currently wandering in Brooklyn.  With Nick and Chris having awoken in Seattle and Nelson in Maryland, they each found a contemplative solace in music, and first met in another life as part of four-piece band, Motive.  After catching the attention of the likes of MTV2 and New York Times as well as opening slots for the likes of The Vaccines and Bear Hands, Motive eventually parted ways only to reform in this current life as a three-piece outfit, which would become DREAMERS.

DREAMERS’ upcoming LP is a psychedelic collection of indie rock tunes that journeys through an array of experiences culminating one transcendental moment.  With each track a mystifying journey and tale in itself, DREAMERS are ultimately here for one purpose - to help you follow your dream, whatever it may be..

Comprised of Billy Yost (vocals, guitar), Eamonn Donnelly (bass), Jonny Ifergan (guitar), and Ryan Farnham (drums), Chicago’s The Kickback is a result of Billy’s emigration to The Windy City from rural South Dakota in late 2009 and the subsequent Craigslist pleas seeking out band members.  The group’s music (with songs exploring journalists banding together in the early 1980s to battle the decline of print journalism through sheer ultra-violence to the emasculation of trying to protect the woman you love in a city you don’t understand in a body you know is eventually going in the ground) have earned the group wide praise from Rolling Stone, Sound Opinions contributor Jim Derogatis, You Ain’t No Picasso, the Chicago Tribune, and many more.

After a steady two years of touring and supporting acts like White Rabbits, Smith Westerns, Here We Go Magic, Tapes ‘n Tapes, and Telekinesis (all-the-while earning a reputation as a stellar and explosive live act), the band is preparing to release Sorry All Over The Place (named after a fictional footnote in David Foster Wallace’s Infinite Jest), their debut album produced by Spoon’s Jim Eno.

Saturday, April 4



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

Saturday, April 4  |  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.
