The Mads in St. Louis!

Hey Missouri friends! Trace and Frank will be playing two shows (7:00pm and 10:00pm) and hosting their riff-writing workshop (12:00pm) on December 12th at the Ivory Theatre in St. Louis! To read more about it, check out our article in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

This show is super important because it will work a little differently than ones we’ve done in the past. Instead of getting our paycheck from the venues, we’ve taken a risk and had them personally rented out of pocket in the hopes that ticket sales alone are enough to make a profit (after our hotel, airfare, etc. have been paid for). If this show is a success, we’ll be able to play more rental venues in the future, which blows open the possibility of playing many more towns (maybe including yours!). So tell your friends, your dog, your dog’s friends, your dog’s fleas, and everybody to be at the Ivory on December 12th.

Thanks to Tom O’Keefe for setting everything up, and the incredible work he did for us while we were Cinematic Titanic.

    Nice website!

    I saw 2 of these shows so far. There are a few ways to get your MST3K fix these days but this has by far been my favorite!

      We’ve got several potential venues lined up in just about every part of the country. No guarantees yet that they’ll pull through, but we’re working on it!

      Nothing solid, but Boston’s on our list.

      1. OOh I hope this happens! Was so bummed we missed them in Springfield in June – can’t wait for them to be in the New England area again

        It was nice meeting them in Minneapolis – and you too Zoe!

      We were in Chicago last October and we’d love to come back. We’re working on making it happen right now. Keep an ear out.

    The Frauenthal Theater in Muskegon, Michigan, would be a great venue!

      Thanks for the recommendation! We’ll look into it.

        I’ll second the Frauenthal Theater in Muskegon, MI. It’s my wife’s hometown, and I’d make a special trip to see the Mads!

          Definitely have to give that one a peek then. Thanks!

    There are a lot of Mysty fans back east that would love to see The Mads. Saw them several years ago in Princeton when they were were in Cinematic Titanic. The State Theater in Easton PA is a very nice venue. Also the Mayo Performing Arts Center in Morristown NJ is very nice.

    The Screening Room or The Loft in Tucson would be an excellent location. Huge MST3K fanbase in town, indie theaters.

    I caught the show in Columbus Ohio last night, Thursday July 13th and it was even better than I would have expected. It was really good. I had yet to see Glen and Glenda but I thought I knew the movie from all the clips that get used over the years. But no, I knew nothing. There’s is a lot of bizarre stuff going on in there.
    I can sum it up in one word. Damn!

    I was getting worried. friday night at their show in Chicago. Joe Flahherty was there and I worried about what much comedic genius in the same room could result in. Cosmic wormholes, huge explosions sfter critical mass was achieved. Fortunatey what we got was an incredbly great evening. Flahhery wasn’t there to participate, he was just there. I hope I didn’t bug him too much by running my SCTV theory by him (layers) . It’s got to get old but he’s such a professional that he didn’t show it if annoyed.
    And fhe show. Man, it doesn’t get any better. They ripped ‘The Tingler’, a low budget acid movie from 1959 but it still beat Corman’s “The Trip”
