Saturday Oct 25th @ 8pm The Bats
The Bats Cabaret::Comedy::Ensemble

Bringing together the seven diverse talents known as The Bats has netted a genre that can best be described as cabaret meets rock and roll... and everything in between. The five meddlesome women and two foolhardy men of this distinctive group embrace musical styles ranging from goofy to poignant. United by the angst and joys of middle age, they bare their souls onstage, singing of love lost and found, the perks and stings of growing bolder, and of life's best and worst moments. Whether covering other artists' material or singing their own original tunes, The Bats rock the stage with tight vocal harmonies and skillful musicianship, wit and sophistication, energy and creativity... then they throw in props and choreography for good measure! They sing, they dance, they yodel, & they won't stop, even if you ask them to.
The "Bats experience" is unique, smart, fun, lively, refreshing, and most of all entertaining. Don't miss it!

Sunday Oct 26th @ 7:30pm Nick Dittmeier & Josh Nolan
Nick Dittmeier & Josh Nolan Nick Dittmeier is a singer-songwriter from southern Indiana. He fronted the alt-country band Slithering Beast for five years. In early 2013, he branched out and started performing under his own name and established a new band. His first release was an EP called "Extra Better." It garnered local and regional attention and radio play, while earning him a nomination for "Songwriter of the Year" at the First Annual Louisville Music Awards.

Singer/Songwriter/Multi-Instrumentalist Josh Nolan has collaborated his musical background of dance halls, high school gymnasiums, spare-room-recordings, bar-hopping fill-ins, and fireside jams with his experiences as a college dropout, blue collar, small town, restless soul to create a music that is more than heartfelt.
Performing live with a 5 piece lineup, "Josh Nolan & The Bad Painters" offers an energetic stage show that combines elements from some of their more theatrical influences such as Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band and The Who, with interests in improvisational performances such as The Grateful Dead and The Flying Burrito Brothers.

Free Admission
