Friday, January 5th

This weekend downtown Terre Haute is kicking off Winter with Frosty First Friday. Start the new year off right by exploring downtown and all it has to offer. The main features for January are a Hot Chocolate Crawl and Frosty Top Scavenger Hunt for Jeep Junkies! The art galleries, restaurants and shops will be open so you can spend any holiday cash you might have received. Don’t forget to stop by the Clabber Girl Bake Shop and test out their themed menu for this event, you won’t regret it.

If you are a lover of all things Prince, because who isn’t?! Stop by Books in Brew in Indy to enjoy a viewing of Purple Rain. The movie is about a victim of his own anger, the Kid (Prince) is a Minneapolis musician on the rise with his band, the Revolution, escaping a tumultuous home life through music. While trying to avoid making the same mistakes as his truculent father (Clarence Williams III), the Kid navigates the club scene and a rocky relationship with a captivating singer, Apollonia (Apollonia Kotero). But another musician, Morris (Morris Day), looks to steal the Kid’s spotlight — and his girl. They will be tapping a special brew at 10:00 and showing the movie at 10:30.

If you stop downtown for the first Friday event, grab your significant other and check out J.Fords & The Swope’s Date Night. The restaurant will be having a menu inspired by art work in the Swope collection. The Swope will have a date night activity sheet to help make your night a little more exciting. Please make your dinner reservations by calling J. Ford’s at (812) 235-5549.

They’re bringing you soul, funk, doo-wop, and vintage music from around the globe. The point is to dance and DJ LITTLETOWN and D. STRANGE are going to make it hot and make it happen. They’ll be spinning vinyl and if you’ve got a classic favorite or tasty retro styling to share, feel free to BYOV. Come see what they’re about, share in libations, and cut some rugs. Costumes are welcome and encouraged!

D. STRANGE will open this feature! He’s a black identity extremist with an affinity for dusty crates of techno, house, and soul artifacts littered across the USA.

Little Town has been playing out since 2012 and considers her style to be eclectic / fitting to the room she plays for.
