joshua powell.jpg

at the historic WHITE RABBIT CABARET
(bear witness to an evening of the midwest's finest)

Joshua Powell + the Great Train Robbery (indy)
Untangled from sonic hexes of clay and blurry eyes, the kaleidoscopic reinterpretation of rock witchery, sloping up heavenward with cosmic channeling of belted protest breath and sweat that fills a reflection pond in your hallucinating spirit's angsty core.

MOIRA (ohio)
Lush violet dream pop like the cat sleep of Sunday afternoon inside a synthesized mewl, cascades of polyphonic charm telekinetics, a holy trio of aural bedroom pioneering and rectitude.

Mister Moon (ohio) -
Build your celestial nest in the echoing chamber between two syncopated battle drums, whistling octaval birdsong beneath the tintinnabulation of indie rock reimagined as everything worth listening to in universal stereo.

ALL ETHEREAL // ALL THE TIME

Show at 8pm

Must be 21+ with Valid ID

All Seating is First Come, First Served



New York City-based comedian and actor Todd Barry is widely recognized for his roles as the bongo-playing Third Conchord on HBOs Flight of the Conchords and Mickey Rourkes deli boss in 2009 Oscar winner The Wrestler, and renowned throughout the entertainment industry for his nuanced, measured, and thoroughly original approach to stand-up. Drawing audience members in with his deadpan self-deprecation and ability to pile punchline upon punchline, his decidedly low-key stage persona belies a deeply intelligent, often biting, occasionally absurdist worldview, one lauded by discerning fans who seek a fresh yet honest update to traditional observation and social commentary.
Boasting multiple stand-up appearances on The Late Show with David Letterman, Late Night with Conan OBrien, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and two Comedy Central Presents specials, and his latest one hour Comedy Central special Super Crazy. Todds resume also includes such hit TV shows as Louie, Delocated, Bored to Death, Tim and Eric, Chappelles Show, Sex and the City, Roast Battle and even Sesame Street. Among his additional feature-film highlights are Todd Phillipss Road Trip, Louis CKs Pootie Tang, and Mitch Hedbergs Los Enchiladas. You can see him soon at Sigourney Weaver's right hand man in Amy Heckerling's Vamps, and as Paul Rudd's co-worker in David Wain's Wanderlust. Internationally he has performed at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Montreals Just For Laughs Festival, the Vancouver International Comedy Festival, and Kilkenny, Irelands Cat Laughs Festival.
Todd has been heard on both The Howard Stern Show and The Bob & Tom Show, and his albums Medium Energy, Falling Off the Bone, and From Heaven are available from Comedy Central Records, Amazon and iTunes. He has earned the U.S. Comedy Arts Festivals Jury Award, praise from Ricky Gervais as one of the best comedians of 2009, and accolades from The Onions A.V. Club, which declared Medium Energy one of the best comedy albums of the decade.
Todd was the subject of a recent New York Times Arts section cover story, which referred to him as a master of standup and noted when it comes to live performance, few comics are more consistently funny.
Todd Barry Podcast debuted in 2013 and has since reached #1 on the iTunes.

VOCAB presents: Release and Prelim for Indy Pride Poet Laureate

We are excited to be apart of the journey of so many artists in Indianapolis. This month's show will be featuring the latest releases from some of our favorite artists.

Sylvia Thomas with the release of DIVINE (written by Sylvia Thomas, foreword and edited by Elle Roberts) is a series of poems reflected on my experiences with sex, religion, love, divinity, and my trans body. In order to heal my spirit, faith, and womanhood from the violence I have experienced, my own self-love became my religion

Gritty of Gritty & The Craftsman with his latest release

Join VOCAB, Iconoclast, and Indy Pride as we band together to hunt for Indianapolis' very first Pride Poet Laureate. Kicking off as a portion of VOCAB's renowned open mic event, this series will take the form of a literary death match tournament. Anyone interested in competing must perform at VOCAB's open mic to be considered by a panel of judges and advance to the next round. Those selected to move on must appear again before judges at Iconoclast's event Thursday, May 16th. When our final few are chosen, they'll face each other one last time at a curated reading, no open mic, where each will feature for 15 minutes. This is when YOU, the audience will pick our winner! Follow along with each event and meet some of Indianapolis' premier poetry community at two of the best open mics in the city. Or if you dare, COMPETE for your shot at the title, The 2019 Poet Laureate of Indy Pride.

To participate in the prelims for the poetry death match for Indy Pride you must email esmith@indypride.org Signup is limited to 12 people and you must email to participate

Cost : $25 USD for one or $40 USD for 2 plus a $2 paypal fee.

1-2pm: Chair Dance Fundamentals
Learn the sassy and classic technique of chair dancing in this comprehensive foundation class. We start at the base with discovering the physicality, strength, and grace it takes to make this discipline look flawless! We cover safety, transition techniques, impactful poses, leg and arm work, and foundation inversions. We also cover the exercises that complement the moves learned for building the strength it takes to execute this style with ease. This class also has a small choreography component to explore act building with chair dancing.
What to bring / needs : Please wear crops or leggings instead of shorts as you may stick to the chair. Not recommended for students with severe back injuries. Knee pads or legwarmers are great for extra protection.

2:15-3:45pm: The Slow Burn - Moving with Sensuality and Intention
Moving slowly on stage is challenging. It takes thought, confidence, and a belief in the expression you are portraying to your audience. It starts with a thought, is moved through action, and then becomes bestowed to your audience. Whenever you are moving on stage, you want your actions to radiate strength and grace, power and intention. This movement- and theory-based class will take you through a warm-up, a diverse range of movements and the theory behind them, and exploration of receptive and penetrative energies to bring the most diverse translations of your desires to the stage.
What to bring / needs : Please wear dance or yoga clothes and bring a note book and water. Dance shoes optional.

About Lola: Co-director of the Vancouver Burlesque Centre, member of Sweet Soul Burlesque and an internationally recognized, award winning performer - Lola has headlined festivals from Colorado to Stockholm, been voted into the Top 50 of Burlesque Figures 8 years running, and holds the title of 2nd runner up Miss Exotic World 2013. As a rock'n'roll flapper, Lola is best known for her intense slow burn and combining her anachronistic styles of vintage and modern, a 1920’s starlet with a kiss of Ramones grit.

Reformed Whores with Special Guests

If Dolly Parton & Flight of the Conchords got drunk and had a baby, you'd get the musical comedy duo Reformed Whores!

Described as “Southern-Fried feminism with a side of crass and a tall glass of sass,” Katy Frame and Marie Cecile Anderson have headlined comedy clubs and toured the country opening for the likes of musical parodist "Weird Al" Yankovic, bassist extraordinaire Les Claypool, guitar hero Dweezil Zappa and rockabilly vet Reverend Horton Heat. Reformed Whores have over a million hits on their YouTube Channel and their sophomore record "Don't Beat Around the Bush" debuted in March 2016 in the top 20 iTunes comedy chart. Most recently their show GRAND OLE CUNTRY premiered in August 2017 at the Edinburgh Fringe, and was hailed by the press as "A magnificently bawdy celebration of female sexuality” and "Genuinely endearing and unflinchingly upbeat." (Broadway Baby)
