What has happened to us? Despite the most advanced medical technology in the world, we are sicker than ever by nearly every measure. Cases of diabetes are exploding, especially amongst our younger population. About half of us are taking at least one prescription drug and major medical operations have become routine. Heart disease, cancer and stroke are the country’s three leading causes of death, even though billions are spent each year to “battle” these very conditions. Millions suffer from a host of other degenerative diseases. Could it be there’s a single solution to all of these problems? A solution so comprehensive, but so utterly straightforward, that it’s mind-boggling that more of us haven’t taken it seriously? FORKS OVER KNIVES examines the profound claim that most, if not all, of the so-called “diseases of affluence” that afflict us can be controlled…
Man On Wire
August 23 at 7pm

Tickets are $7

On August 7, 1974, Philippe Petit, a French wire walker, juggler, and street performer days shy of his 25th birthday, spent 45 minutes walking, dancing, kneeling, and lying on a wire he and friends strung between the rooftops of the Twin Towers. Uses contemporary interviews, archival footage, and recreations to tell the story of his previous walks between towers of Notre Dame and of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, his passions and friendships, and the details of the night before the walk: getting cable into the towers, hiding from guards, and mounting the wire. It ends with observations of the profound changes the walks success brought to Philippe and those closest to him.

Cody Riley Band
August 25 at 9pm

Tickets are $30 online and $35 at the door

Up and coming singer-songwriter Cody Riley has lived a long life as an artist to be only seventeen years old. He started playing guitar at age five, wrote his first lyrics at seven, and played in his first band at eight. Cody played bass guitar when he was eight years old for his older brother Chris, then played rhythm and vocals in a duet group with Chris for The CCRiley Band.

Now, Cody is the front man for The Cody Riley Band. Cody’s musical ability will make you want to move to the music, while his lyrics will leave you wondering just how a seventeen-year-old writes with the wisdom of an artist three times his age. His first E.P. release in August of 2007 was just another stepping stone to the top. With producer Rodney Pyeatt stepping in to lend a hand on lead guitar as well, it was bound to be a success. Following the release of that E.P., SHORT BUS, the band hit the road to do what they have always loved to do: play music. Cody Riley just finished his New CD, EVERYTHING IN COLOR.
Come and see Cody in action as he films his next music video live at Liberty Hall!!
