Braille (Philadelphia), S.U.B. (Ferndale), Screams of Christ at Trumbullplex October 15!

Take my tidings:
Stags contend;
Snows descend–
Summer’s end!

A chill wind raging,
The sun low keeping,
Swift to set
O’er seas high sweeping.

Dull red the fern;
Shapes are shadows;
Wild geese mourn
O’er misty meadows.

Keen cold limes each weaker wing,
Icy times–
Such I sing!
Take my tidings.

Who says anarchists don’t have their shit together HUH! This month we are celebrating 20 years of keeping it real with a Flyer Art Show, a huge show with our friends Mischief Brew.

FLYER ART SHOW OPENING – August 9th, 7pm
Thousands of flyers and posters will be showcased from 20 years of putting on all kinds of weird, amazing and radical events in our space. It is pretty incredible! The opening will feature the Theatre Collective’s own DJ Doctor Doom on the turntables, lots of fun games and of course food and drinks.

if you have any old flyers you would like to contribute to the show, please email them to or drop them off a few days before the show.

Open hours almost everyday during the week, will be posted soon!

BIG SHOW with MISCHIEF BREW- August 17th
Our friend Eric and Mischief Brew are celebrating their 10th ANNIVERSARY of playing at Trumbullplex while we are celebrating our 20th as a collective! Isn’t that something. So we’ve put together an incredibly rockin and badass evening of music, featuring….
Mischief Brew, a Trumbull favorite who will be celebrating 10 years of playing Trumbullplex. If you’ve managed to not come to Trumbullplex in summer for the past ten years and don’t know Mischief Brew, check them our here:

Rifle Diet: good ol’ Minneapolis crustcore returning to Trumbullplex for the second time.

Sometimes when bands get famous they find themselves suddenly too cool to play the anarchist collective. They get a band manager, who wouldn’t find it a profitable enough business move. Well, NOT LEMURIA! why? because they are FUCKING AWESOME.

An evening of poetry and music with Julie Patton and more

Julie+Patton+PhotoMay 31st, 2013

Julie Patton & Paul Van Curen- Julie Patton is the author of Using Blue To Get Black, Notes for Some (Nominally) Awake, and A Garden Per Verse (or What Else do You Expect from Dirt?). Patton’s work has appeared in ((eco (lang)(uage(reader)), Critiphoria and nocturnes. Room for Opal, a sound/text installation that Patton created as a Green Horizons fellow at Bates College, is in Jonathan Skinner’s Listening with Patton. Patton’s performance work, featured at the Stone, Jazz Standard and noted international venues, emphasizes improvisation, collaboration and other-worldly chora-graphs. Paul Van Curen accompanies her poetry with his guitar.

Doll Hairs – Detroit experimental rock & roll band that attempts to compose improvisation, and push the edges of a melodic discordance in pop rock.

Television Faerie Tale – Singer-guitarist Anita Schmaltz (Ass, In Your Hand) laments her state on stage as she merges modern day electronic innovation with storytelling in the king’s court. Heavily influenced by Donovan, Nico and John Cale, TVFT plays as a Pre-Raphaelite painting with word and sound.
