What’s a night out at Inside Edge like?
It’s celebrating life on the edge. Music: Indie Rock, Punk, Outlaw Country, Post-Americana. Comedy: with a sting so sly you hardly notice, til ya bleed a little. Dance: Belly Dance, Post-Post Interpretive. Magic: beyond Cirque Du Soleil.
Some people dig roots music. Some, indie rock. Some, our own “punch in your nose” Altcountry/Rockabilly sound.
But good music is, well, GOOD. All these “inside edge” genres are just different enough, sophisticated enough that you fans overlap.
So we mix a cocktail of Roots blues, AltRock, and mebbe a truly hip spoken word/HipHop sound.... PLUS the kind of face-to-face interaction with up-and-coming musicians right there on the dance floor you'd NEVER get anywhere else--even with a backstage pass!!!
Whaddya know! We got an interesting evening....
And this is just the beginning!
Once a month, we’ll open the doors at the Back Door — Bloomington's most elegant alternative dance club — to up-and-coming interesting bands who need a shot, plus at least one more established band a night.
With music — and comedy and more — that appeals more to 30+ A D U L T S than the barely-legal-to-drink set.
PLUS, there’s a CONTEST! The audience votes for the best band of the night. And the top 2 bands take home some hard-earned bucks. Along with overdue bragging rights!
Imagine a dark, cozy, intimate nightclub dressed with white tablecloths and people sipping martinis.
And couples dancing….
Imagine a REAL night out. To a galaxy far far FAR away…..
Imagine yrslf and yer sweetie at “Cabaret Inside Edge,” hosted by Kimmie & Johnny….
