There are no drinks available for sale at the Firehouse. If you are twenty-one or over you are welcome to bring your own adult beverages.
A personalized message from Ben Smolin:
I am aware that the tickets are $15.00 and that is not cheap. However I think it is important that you know that this money goes 100% towards the show and if there is anything left over, I use that money to pay the band and the soundguy/venue. I have never once actually made money on a show and most likely I never will. These shows are meant to be true experiences and there are numerous props, costumes, and other such things that cost money to make and/or buy. It is totally your decision as to whether this show is worth your time and money. And I know that not everyone has $15.00 that they can afford to spend on a show. However when you walk in the door you can be certain that I have spent months of time and hundreds of dollars of my personal money, to ensure that this show will be an experience that you will never forget.

(This event is 18+)
First Kentucky Post:
First Kentucky Post is the occasionally-employed name for the music of James P. Fahy (ex-Teen Getaway).
First Kentucky Post began life as a project based on missives and foggy memories. Sometimes these songs "rock" but, often, they are aggro-ambient soundscapes conjured via electric guitars, synthesizers, and cassette tapes. Expect the latter.
Helmed by Seth Noble of Iron Giant Percussion, cnida consists of acoustic drone/additive processes for harmonium, percussion, and various other gadgetry. It's the ocean floor or deep space. You're probably dead either way.
Llarks is an ambient / noise band led by guitarist & computer musician Christopher Llarks (aka c.jeely). His music uses guitar, laptop and tape manipulation to create multilayered melodic compositions.
C has been actively releasing music since 1996 under previous projects Accelera Deck, September Plateau, and The Trust Riots.
Llarks is currently promoting the Like A Daydream LP which Vital Weekly said ..."will surely expand his audience..." The new album follows Llarks’ well received set at the Tonalism stage at Bonnaroo, which Rolling Stone called the "Best Place To Chill" (Bonnaroo 2018: 31 Best Things We Saw).
