Paint Nite painting party www.paintnite.com
Paint Nite® is a new concept of blending two timeless pastimes, artistic painting and drinking cocktails, as a way to draw patrons into local pubs with a unique opportunity to socialize and be creative. The 2-hour Paint Nite painting parties are held daily with 25+ people in attendance who follow the step-by-step instructions of one master local artist from blank canvas to masterpiece. Paint Nite® is about making art accessible to people who don’t consider themselves artists or creative in any way. Paint Nite is about fostering a fun, low stress, non-judgmental environment that inspires everyone to enjoy the process of creating something from nothing. We want the anxiety that people may feel about doing something “wrong”, to be displaced by a fun night of socializing with friends and having a relaxing, creative time. For many customers, Paint Nite will be a novel and memorable experience, as many have not touched a paint brush since elementary school. Find us at www.paintnite.com. Any questions about events contact info@paintnite.com.

Ryan Chaney and the Jakeleggers

Chaney, also known as The Preacher, sings about, picks from, and writes and rants on the sick, the seamy, but always fun fulminations of America's collective unconscious. When the JakeLeggers deign to emerge from their mist to accompany him, the admixture brings out a country punk beast on a tear, with tastes from plaintive and melodious traditionals to original carnivale.

Curtis Eller's American Circus

The American Circus is a brutish and inelegant rock & roll band hailing form some faded North Carolinian tobacco town, let by banjo player and songwriter, Curtis Eller. Mr. Eller's compositions describe a dreamlike vision of American history where all points in time have collapsed into one. Past recordings have seen a ghastly parade of historical luminaries, from Abraham Lincoln and Buster Keaton to Amelia Earhart and Joe Louis, sharing the spotlight with a host of Civil War generals and corrupt 19th century politicians. Their latest phonographic recording, "How to Make It in Hollywood", is a collection of glittery show tunes, sentimental tear-jerkers and rock & roll rave-ups whose lyrics are populated with two-bit prize fighters, Hollywood has-beens, lapsed gospel singers and forgotten pop stars.

Karaoke Tuesdays at 10 PM with the Jared Michael Gniewek Karaoke Warzone

The irreverent and raucous Jared Michael Gniewek Karaoke Warzone has been destroying popular music since 2010 when ex-metal singer and comic book
writer, Jared Michael Gniewek, began substituting for Bay Area karaoke 
icon, KJ Paul. Upon leaving San Francisco, a fundraiser was held by 
both enthusiasts and professionals alike to start the Warzone, sending him off to New York City saying “show
 them how we do it.” His events consist of a positive and 
jovial environment where people celebrate what karaoke is all about, 
transforming pop music into folk music and making extroverts go too far.

J.A.ME.(S) BROOK plays Brooklyn grunge at the Prospect Heights Music Festival
J.A.M.E.(S) BROOK is a rock band that formed in the jam sessions and barrooms of Brooklyn, New York. The members of the band--Justin Goldman, Adriano Vasquez, Marcel Negret, and Ernesto Benitez--come from a wide range of places, from Colombia to Connecticut, and bring an even wider range of musical influences to our sound. In any J.A.M.E.(S) BROOK song, you might hear traces of Pearl Jam, Social Distortion, Pavement, Led Zeppelin, Gram Parsons, the Allman Brothers, Soundgarden, the Doors, or the Smashing Pumpkins. We strive to bring these influences together to create a recognizable yet new guitar-driven sound that reflects the diversity and energy of Brooklyn, the place we call home. http://bit.ly/1iHzqGb

Dance Music for Mice plays songs of geed, lust and self-pity--a combination of country and down home blues.
Dance Music for Mice is the brainchild of Framus guitar player David Saphire, a Brooklyn native who has lived in Prospect Heights since the mid-80s. After playing gigs by his lonesome in watering holes around the neighborhood David joined forces with Ramblin' Rica, a blues-belting diva, and Stan S., a lap-steel aficionado and the former bassist for the Incredible String Band. Dance Music for Mice combines original interpretations of country and down home blues classics. http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http%3A%2F%2F2.bp.blogspot.com%2F-dulhf4dI3Ag%2FUZzj0vvvroI%2FAAAAAAAAGTI%2FlVzAPMhlxn0%2Fs1600%2Fmice.jpg&imgrefurl=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.brandedsaloon.com%2F2013%2F05%2Fwednesday-052213-dance-music-for-mice.html&h=550&w=961&tbnid=mjcAM9yzp1Pg5M%3A&zoom=1&docid=CYvQ84k4TH4dPM&ei=OcePU4-DLo6LyATU_4DAAg&tbm=isch&client=safari&ved=0CCsQMygAMAA&iact=rc&uact=3&dur=1337&page=1&start=0&ndsp=43

LICE, the lost children of Liberace, deliver a brand of musical entertainment guaranteed to lead you on a path of self destruction!
LICE plays heavy Rock with music and lyrics meant to send listeners and audience members spiraling into madness and erotic abandon, with a touch of sparkle. We met when the Mormon genealogy researchers in Utah called us to meeting in Salt Lake City to inform us that we were all sired by Liberace. Apparently the gay thing was just a gimmick. Realizing the truth of our heritage, we came together to carry on our father's work of bringing musical greatness to the world.
