Upcoming Events

Friday October 3rd The Fever with The Settlement 

"Their sound lies somewhere between bluesrock, punk and new wave. They call themselves The Fever and infect you with their music" - RADIO M94.5 
  • "LA punk rockers THE FEVER offer up some ballsy Neo-Wave tunes reminiscent of some of the best bands from NYC and San Francisco circa late 1970's. Coco's vocals echo another beauty, Debby Harry, but with a tinge of bored junkie adding an edgier sound. Listen to Romeo Void's classic "Never Say Never" and you could imagine The Fever sharing the stage with them. Lead guitarist/bass player Teut licks have a raw punkish sound but his proficiency elevates him closer to new-wave. In both "Cheap Tattoo" and "Chicka Boom" he grinds out distorted power chords backed by his fat bass beats while Coco snarls lyrics at you. Besides sounding great they also look great so I'd be really surprised if these guys aren't a big hit. Rock on guys!" -DickTator


    "With a flair for extremes – including both wearing nipple tape on stage and music videos with references to DV (domestic violence) – its safe to expect things to get a little hot when you're exposed to The Fever." - SUPERGOODMUSIC 



National Comedy with Brian Barginier, Jerry Morgan and Andy Frampton Thursday October 9th 

Founder of the Original Black Jews of Japan comedy troupe. 
For years now Brian Barganier has been tearing up the comedy scenes in New York City and all a long the east coast. The Connecticut native's style runs comfortably on the edge of conventional and alternative comedy. He is described mostly as what can be called "planned carelessness," Although he is seen as being morbid or crude sometimes,Brian always manages to pull a 180 and find the funny in topics that sometimes seem untouchable. In 2012 he released his first cd "Grilled Cheese and Orgies" and recently released his first full length album: "Kinda Ready to Die" 

Jerry Morgan has been performing all over the east coast at a variety of stages and venues for years. His style has been described as, ", heady... like a mixing anxiety, observation and self deprecation into a blender;  introspection in story form."



He performs and co-promotes a monthly comedy series in New Haven, CT called Fistful of Jokes.
