On Friday, April 4, pop-paradigm twisters What Laura Says Thinks and Feels will bring their brand of Beach Boys-esque harmonies to the huge party tent at the cinema. They'll be joined by electro-spazz kids Peachcake. On Saturday, April 5, Bohemian Geek Soul artist Jody Gnant will take the stage, followed by live karaoke band, The Instant Classics. Both shows start at 7 p.m., and admission to both shows is free.
