July Fourth Show!

Hello! We’re having one show this summer and it’s July 4th! Check it:
Aquadome Summer Fun Fest flyer

For the second year in a row, we are very fortunate and pleased to be hosting a summer show. We’ve got four great Kirksville bands lined up and we’ll be grilling food the whole time. It should be a fun, sweaty, laid back show. We’ll be finished by sunset so you can still catch the Kirksville fireworks, which start around 9:30 near the Kirksville country club.

Bonus: Our former president, Hannah Copeland, is playing in Glass Fields! This is probably their final show–at least for the foreseeable future–and I’m sure they’ve got big plans. Come out to see a historic performance!

IPAC Freak Dance

This Saturday, April 21st at 8pm -1am:

A fog rave at the Aquadome featuring a DJ, silly string and highliters, “That Bitter Taste” directed by local filmmaker Jonathan Marshall, some Modville, and a performance by the band Orange Iguanas.

Admission is $4, doors open at 8 p.m., come prepared for dancing and fun!

Bee! Why? Oh, Bee!

Full Moon Show 4/5/12
