The 25th Anniversary Tour of The Real McKenzies 
With special guests Isotopes

The Real McKenzies are a national treasure. Founded in 1992 by the punkrock poet laureate, Mr Paul McKenzie, this merry band of miscreants has spent a quarter century circumnavigating the globe. It would be a serious mistake to write them off as just another Celtic punk band. This is an absolutely monumental giant of an album. Two Devils Will Talk is fourteen tracks of pure, unbridled audio bliss.

Geekdom House Live! watches Battlestar Galactica
Come discover which of your friends are Cylons. Geekdom House Live! returns with an episode of Battlestar Galactica. After watching the episode together we will over-analyze the episode and let it play with our life, faith, and philosophy.

If you're not sure if there is a difference between a Cylon and a toaster, that's ok. We pride ourselves on doing a fairly good job of explaining anything that needs to be explained - so you can enjoy the fandom regardless of familiarity.

The event and snacks are free. A free-will offering will be taken to cover expenses. 
Sam's Place folks will be in place to service all your coffee, espresso, and tea needs.
We operate from a Christian worldview, however we have no expectation on others and welcome differing viewpoints into the conversation.

Judah & the Lion Going to Mars Tour, with guests

Like Kids These Days, their debut record, climbed to number two on the genre-wide Heatseekers chart. With their second album, Folk Hop N Roll, the guys shine a light on the place where their influences overlap. Front man Judah Akers, who shares the band's lineup with drummer Spencer Cross, mandolin player Brian Macdonald, and banjo wiz Nate Zuercher. We all grew up loving these hip-hop beats, so why not make an album that has the grit of Run DMC or Beastie Boys, along with all the folk instruments that we play?

Continuing the success of Folk Hop N’ Roll, their hit single, “Take It All Back 2.0”, recently reached the #1 spot on the Alternative charts.
