The Lego Movie (2014) PG

An ordinary Lego construction worker, thought to be the prophesied ‘Special’, is recruited to join a quest to stop an evil tyrant from gluing the Lego universe into eternal stasis.

From www.rottentomatoes.com: Critics Consensus: Boasting beautiful animation, a charming voice cast, laugh-a-minute gags, and a surprisingly thoughtful story, The Lego Movie is colorful fun for all ages.

Live Music (The Fearless Freaks (acoustic) $5, Gates Open at 6pm), August 13, 6pm – 9pm in the Isaac Taylor Garden & Gallery Caffè.

The Fearless Freaks started life as an acoustic ensemble dedicated to performing renditions of songs by Oklahoma rock group The Flaming Lips. Taking their name from the title of the documentary by Brad Beasley, Parker Millar, Kenny Castania and Terry McElhennon formed the group in the summer of 2014, meeting every Wednesday to play open-mic night at Mesh Sports Bar on Trent Road.

After recording Be Kind to Animals, an album of acoustic covers of The Flaming Lips, and UFO’s at the Mesh 2, a live collaboration between the Fearless Freaks and the amazing musicians who frequent open-mic night at Mesh Sports Bar, the band rounded out their lineup, adding drummer and multi-instrumentalist Jake Ross.

The Fearless Freaks have since recorded a debut full-length album entitled Mindkiller with the help of local audio engineer John Parker of Track One Productions. The band continues to be a fixture of the blossoming music scene in New Bern, North Carolina, and on August 13th they will be playing a special acoustic set downtown at the Isaac Taylor Garden. Their positive mentality and feel-good brand of psychedelic rock music are best summed up with the Fearless Freaks’ motto: We Are Freaks And We Love You!
