THE HIPSTERS @ 9pm

The Hipsters: Nothing but solid ground pounding, hip grinding, ass shaking rock and roll provide the base for this band. Years of history between the foursome has given them perspective on all types of music….but a fresh attack on music, as well as a true enjoyment of working the crowd keeps the atmosphere alive and electric.

Solid dance rock that you know and love…High energy atmosphere that you want to be a part of…its hot rock for cool people, and you need to get some.

Truman, Special Agent Dale Cooper and help crack the case of the murder of Laura Palmer.

geeks who drink: PUB QUIZ @8pm (FREE)

What’s a pub quiz?

Simply, a quiz game played in a pub. It’s an Anglo-Irish tradition, but our goal is the same: to foster friendly competition, and promote social drinking. A noble cause!Does it cost anything?

With rare exceptions, no. You should buy food and drinks though. Our business model is no big secret: We drive business to our host venues or we get fired. So just ordering water is NOT cool. Plus, fish have sex in that stuff.

Do I need to sign up beforehand or can I just show up and play?

Just show up. Team size is limited to six. Play solo if you’d like, but don’t blame us if you’re lonely.

All right, so what’s in it for me?

Besides a couple hours of free entertainment, the top teams get bar gift certificates. Plus there are chances to win free pints (or gift-certificate equivalents) for answering five bonus questions throughout the evening. We also have bizarre prizes courtesy of our weekly Bonus Email Question. Finally, your team can revel in the eternal glory of having your photo posted on this here website.

What’s the quiz format like?

The quiz consists of eight rounds of eight questions each, played by teams of up to six people. Questions are read aloud by the quizmaster and teams write down the answers, turning them in at the end of each round.

Rounds 1, 4 and 6 are themed rounds – anything from “Eight Questions About Sex That Won’t Make You Too Uncomfortable” to “TV Shows Your Parents Watch.” Round 2 is a music round worth double points: name the artist and title for each song clip. Round 3 is a multiple choice round or a speed round. Round 5 is a visual round based on a printed handout. The all-audio Round 7 usually covers movies or TV shows, and is worth the standard eight points. Finally, Round 8 is always 16 points on Random Knowledge.

One round can be jokered, doubling your points for that round only (yes, the 16-point rounds are fair game). The team with the most points after eight rounds is the winner.
