[seeing a poster for the Enchantment Under the Sea dance] Dr. Emmett Brown: Look! There’s a rhythmic ceremonial ritual coming up.
Marty McFly: Of course! The Enchantment Under the Sea dance! They’re supposed to go to this. That’s where they kiss for the first time.
Dr. Emmett Brown: All right, kid. You stick to your father like glue and make sure he takes her to that dance.

That’s right, we’re having ourselves a regular ole 1950s era sockhop at ACS! Rock N Rollers Chris Aytes and the Good Ambition and surf ninjas Los Habaneros will be providing the tunes and the MMC, Sisters of Sound, as well as ACS will be providing the prizes for the costume contests! That’s right, plural! Best male, best female and best group!

Also, the bands will be competing for the best costumes, and you get to vote! As a reward they get a bonus for their night’s pay!

So grab your poodle skirt, dust off that leather jacket, and come on down to the Enchantment Under the Seas dance!

Mathien w/ The Vi Tran Band (American Heroine MHK Release!) & Jessica Paige

When:
September 14, 2013 @ 10:00 pm
Where:
Aggie Central Station, 1115 Moro Street, Manhattan, KS, 66502, United States
Categories:

Almost any one of the many tools at the disposal of Indie rockers Mathien could lead to a successful modern band. The tongue in cheek clever observational song lyrics, a band of musicians who seem bred to experiment in every possible musical style, and a versatile vocalist equally comfortable crooning a soul ballad, screaming a rocker or shifting to hip hop: put them altogether and you’re no longer talking about a potentially successful band but a great one.

The Vi Tran Band from KC will be releasing their new album “American Heroine” in MHK!

“American Heroine is my “wheat fields” album. It’s an album inspired by my love of American literature and all the master storytellers I read when I was growing up–Hemingway, Steinbeck, Fitzgerald. It’s also a romantic rebuttal to the stoic Hemingway heroes of the past; it’s a love letter; it’s a conversation between the heroes and heroines on both sides of the narrative.”

Local song goddess Jessica Paige will be opening up with her sweet, sweet songs. Even the poisonous ones taste like heaven.
