Chili with a side of New Music

Doors at 7:30; music at 8.

This show will feature members of WMU's composition program. Also there is gonna be a fucking legendary chili off! So if you are not so sure about your stance on contemporary music at least come for the chili and the art!

This is not a free show. I can't legally force you to pay or I would. Gas is not free, food is not free, instruments are not free. Support artists.

Please stay off the front porch (we have a back porch!) and put your cig butts in our cig bucket™ or an ashtray! Please don't litter, we will have trash cans in the driveway and one on the back porch. The cleaner the house stays the easier it is for us to keep doing shows. Also come on, it's 2019; why are you just throwing cans in the grass?

THE PHANTOM CARRIAGE
1921 Swedish Fantasy/Horror film directed by and staring Victor Sjöström. Considered one of the greatest silent films and one of the central works in Swedish film history. Known for it's beautiful and iconic imagery, the film was one of the first to use the double exposure technique to create it's ghostly scenes. Igmar Bergman and Stanley Kubrick were both huge fans of this film. Kubrick borrowed his famous axe scene from The Shinning from this film.
