Truth be told, I wasn’t always into bass music. I spent most of 2012 cringing to dubstep while most of my friends got down like dinosaurs. But that all changed when I first heard Flux Pavilion’s, I Can’t Stop. Those prolific vocals over moving melodies made from grimy synths bridged the gap between me and bass music. Even four years later, this track prevails as a closing anthem cherished by bassheads everywhere.

Happy Birthday Nitehawk!


Nitehawk opened its doors 5 years ago on June 24th and is celebrating all this week with some of their favorite flicks and $5 beers.  To top it off, on Friday they are going all out with free tots! Nitehawk – we love you. Cheers to many more.


Programming Highlights:

Since Nitehawk Cinema opened on June 24, 2011, and overturned the prohibition law banning alcohol in theaters, we’ve been committed to presenting the very best, original programming combining three things we love the most: movies, food, and drinks.

June 22: The Deuce screening of Street Trash. Nitehawk first screened Street Trash in April 2012. THE DEUCE debuted at Nitehawk in September 2013 with a screening of Vice Squad.

June 23: Kevin Geeks Out about Death. Kevin first Geeked Out at Nitehawk in October 2014 with zombies.

June 24 & 25: Midnite screenings of Drive. Drive was one of the first movies that Nitehawk played and we played it for a loooong time. You loved it, we loved it and so we’ve chosen it to be a part of our five year celebration! Also, the drink special for this movie, called The Driver, has never left our menu since 2012.

June 25 & 26: Brunch screenings of The Breakfast Club. Nitehawk kicked off our repertory brunch screenings with The Breakfast Club in January 2012. The brunch lives on in the form of our regular brunch series prix fixe: “The Breakfast Club” ($15) one entree plus mimosa or Bloody Mary. 

June 28: Film Feast – Dazed and Confused. Nitehawk’s FILM FEASTS was first served in October 2012 with a screening of Apocalypse Now with Sixpoint Brewery and is the ultimate example of what Nitehawk does best. Dazed and Confused marks the fourth time we’ve collaborated with Lagunitas Brewing Company.

See you there!

This One Goes To Eleven: Weekly metal roundup

Grave-Miasma-Endless-PilgrimageApologies for the feature-related interruptions of this section of late, but time and words—as I’ve learned the hard way—are definitely finite resources. Moving forward you can expect about the same deviation as you’ve been getting, but rest assured, when I don’t have something more substantial already cooking, I will be here, churning these things out all the same.

This One Goes To Eleven: Weekly metal roundup

a1459108403_16More sickening news from the world at large this week. I love metal. My guess is you do too. But as we approach one of the 2016’s first serious AOTY contenders –and one not without its own ethical complications–let’s try to keep all this in perspective. We aren’t saving or taking lives here. We are talking about entertainment, so keep calm and respect your fellow hessian.
