Experience 1920s-40s hot jazz with New York-based The Hot Sardines on Friday, January 20 @ 7 p.m. Music first made famous decades ago comes alive with brassy horn arrangements, rollicking piano melodies, tap dancing, and vocals from a chanteuse who will transport you in time with a mere lilt of her voice. The Hot Sardines self-titled debut album was named one of iTunes' best jazz albums of 2014, spending more than a year on the Billboard Jazz Chart, debuting in the top 10 alongside Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga. In this second Admiral appearance, the band debuts their sophomore release "French Fries & Champagne."
Buckle up for $5 Movie Night with Death Race 2000 on Friday, January 27 @ 11:59 p.m. In the year 2000, America is a vast speedway. People line the streets to witness the greatest drivers on Earth in a cross-country road race from sea to shining sea - but this isn't the Indy 500 folks. This is a Death Race. Every car a deadly weapon. Every spectator a potential point. It's a cross-country road wreck - and the traffic is murder. Can our hero Frankenstein win the day? Buckle Up. Start Your Engines. And don't miss this 1975 cinematic classic starring David Carradine and Sylvester Stallone.
Celebrate Chinese New Year with The Peking Acrobats 30th Anniversary Tour on Saturday, January 28 @ 7 p.m. and help welcome the Year of the Rooster! The Peking Acrobats demonstrate maneuvers atop a precarious pagoda of chairs and are experts at trick-cycling, precision tumbling, somersaulting, and gymnastics. They defy gravity with amazing displays of contortion, flexibility, and control. The Peking Acrobats show is packed with awe-inspiring feats to create an exuberant, entertaining event featuring all the excitement and festive pageantry of a Chinese Carnival.
