Lord Blood-Rah coming to town

On Saturday, Oct. 22, Lord Blood-Rah, host of Lord Blood-Rah’s Nerve Wrackin’ Theatre as seen on MyTV Fort Wayne on Saturday nights, will be in town for two events. 

First up, a meet and greet will be at Stoner’s Funstore from noon-3 p.m., allowing you to stop by and shake hands with Lord Blood-Rah and get a photo, maybe while in some Halloween getup. At 9 p.m., the fun continues at Cinema Center when he will host a showing of the Boris Karloff rarity The Ghoul

There will also be a trick or treat bag of selected Halloween Short Subjects and other fun.

Clyde hosting New Year’s Eve Eve party

To cap off 2022, The Clyde will host Doc West’s Rockin’ New Year’s Eve Eve concert on Friday, Dec. 30, at 8 p.m. 

The event will feature two hours of rock anthems from everyone’s favorite party band Hairball

These cats are a drop-dead accurate homage to some of the world’s biggest ’80s arena acts in a full-on, no-holds-barred party that you must experience. The act features everything from authentic costumes, lights, sounds, and hits from Van Halen, Kiss, MÖtley Crüe, Queen, Journey, and more. 

What’s even better, our very own Whoa, Man! will open the show, so you best arrive on time. 

General admission tickets are available online at, by calling (800) 514-3849, or at The Clyde box office, all Wooden Nickel Records locations, Neat Neat Neat Records, and Sweetwater Sound.
