The New Year’s
A New Day Cabaret

Nothing says fresh like January and some original theater. Therefore, we’re proud to announce our first event of 2017,

newday

So here’s how the prepping worked. Three local photographers snapped pictures of actors. Then three playwrights wrote plays inspired by the photos. So if a picture is worth a thousand words…

The night will also feature live singing by Katy Burns and Ellen Dyer, a dance performance by Cindy Lou Parker and improv from Magical Lying Hour and Ophelia’s Rope. All this adds up to one big night of performances featuring Houston MC, Amy Pope.

The Inators (Bryan/Colllege Station, TX)
https://www.facebook.com/The-Inators-569970039766984/

The Inators is loud guitar bass drum indie pop. The Inators is Dan, Fred, Johnny, and Kelly. With influences from 6L6, EL34, Tim, and 12AX7, The Inators combine elements of The Only Ones, The Replacements, Gin Blossoms, Cheap Trick, The Knack, a little Husker Du, and a dash of Beatles, to produce rock-n-roll that is a bit power pop and a bit pop punk. As an outcome, The Inator’s songs are sweet, hopeful, bitter, and betrayed.

Slow Future (Houston, TX)
http://www.slowfutureband.com/

SLOW FUTURE is a rock band from Houston, Texas.  The band originated in 2014 as a new beginning for guitarists/vocalists Joel Hoyle and Mike Starbuck, and drummer Koree Smith, who played in a previous band together.  Bassist Phil Jackson ran into Smith at a party and asked to join the trio’s new venture.  The quartet has created an instinctive blend of punk-inspired rock.  Their debut single, “Girl Gets Down”, echoes the grit of garage rock and the melancholic aggressiveness of ‘80s and ‘90s underground rock.  It’s all about making meaningful connections through real emotion translated into raw music. This group of self-styled, small town outcasts is releasing its debut E.P. in April 2016, and will be playing throughout the Southern region to support the release.  Let the music tell you the rest of the story!

Tame Tame & Quiet (Mansfield, Denton, Fort Worth, Arlington TX)
https://www.facebook.com/TameTameandQuiet/

Tame..Tame And Quiet formed over the summer of 2004 when Aaron, Boyd and Darren came together with the intention of creating music that was unique, both to their potential audience and to themselves, challenging them to expand past their previous bands’ styles and limitations. In pursuit of this goal, however unintentional, they moved forward creating music that tackled a variety of moods sometimes within the same song. While labeled everything from “weird” to “angular” to “subversively melodic” to “indie jazz” they pursued their vision culminating in the release of their first full length album in 2007. Titled “Tin Can Communicate” the album was recorded, mixed and mastered by Matthew Barnhart at the Echo Lab in Argyle, Texas during 2006. In early 2008, TTXQ enlisted the bass mastery of Paddy Flynn (Deep Snapper, Raised By Tigers) to extend these initial ideas and push the sounds forward.

2013 the original three piece line up reforms for a benefit show.
2014 The new line up of Aaron, Darren, Paddy and Jason McMullen on drums debuts and begins creating new music.
2015 Aaron, Darren, Jason continue with Jeff Williams taking over on bass.
