Desert DeMeNtIa: A Dr. Demento Showcase. Sat. Oct. 8th [Sep. 12th, 2011|12:54 am]
thetrunkspace
Dr. Demento's website:
http://www.drdemento.com/



In today's modern/ironic world we're mired in self-serious entertainment, massive media consolidation, and the constant push to be new and relevant. It's tough to remember the days when an oddball magnet named Dr. Demento ruled the FM airwaves. Weekly, Dr. Demento brought into our homes and cars songs that were peppy, offbeat, and most of all F-U-N.
Beginning in 1970 and lasting in various forms through today (now on the internet).
Demento introduced hundreds of novelty songs to towns across the country.
He fostered a community that spans from ocean to ocean.

HP Lovecraft: Exhumed/Roasted. Celebrating 121 years of Horror! [Aug. 1st, 2011|10:59 pm]
thetrunkspace
The Trunk Space presents
HP LOVECRAFT: Exhumed/Roasted
Sat. August 20th, 2011
7:30pm, $6
1 night only

Howard Phillips Lovecraft is a writer of infamous, if not notorious Horror Fiction, filled with dark forces and monsters (both human and Godly), as well as intense personal psychological terror.

Noted author of 'serious fiction' Joyce Carol Oates has said that Lovecraft "exerted an incalculable influence on succeeding generations of writers of horror fiction."

Despite being accepted as works of fiction, to this day people profess to believe in and follow the rites described in Lovecraft's body of work, and have constructed religions derived from them. This places him in a unique pantheon of modern genre authors, that perhaps only L. Ron Hubbard could be considered a peer to.

Stephen King called Lovecraft "the twentieth century's greatest practitioner of the classic horror tale."

Stryper, "The Covering" reviewed. [May. 25th, 2011|10:04 pm]
thetrunkspace
1980s flashback, come back. Big Hair, High pitch vocals, buzzing guitars, and Jebus . .



“with his stripes we are healed” ~Isaiah 53:5

Chances are you aren’t too familiar with this bible verse, but maybe slightly more so with the 1980’s Christian Heavy Metal Band that took their name from this verse, Stryper! You may have seen ironic hipsters sport their shirts, or seen Juno wear one in that movie where she is a roller derby queen. Maybe if you are slightly older you recall their name or videos on Dial MTV, sort of an early TRL. Often mocked and disregarded, and deemed silly by even 80’s hair metal standards, they did give plenty of ammunition to the ridicule, they looked ridiculous, in their yellow and black, often striped spandex, lead singer Michael Sweet had a high, pretty and, well sort of sweet, girlie voice.
