Know Theatre is proud to announce that up-and-coming Nashville recording artists Indiana Queen will take the stage Saturday night during Cincinnati Fringe Festival’s Fringe Prom, on May 30 at 11 PM.

Indiana Queen is a new queer alt-country band fronted by longtime Fringe Festival artist Kevin Thornton. Indiana Queen’s music is described as having “traces of Hank Williams,” and “the pulse of ‘Jolene’”, but with a decidedly untraditional flair and rock-and-roll edge. Indiana Queen will be headlining Nashville Pride in June—but you can see them here first, at Know Theatre tomorrow night!

Indiana Queen joins us for our annual Fringe Prom, part of the nightly Bar Series events of the 12th Annual Cincinnati Fringe Festival. Our Fringe Prom theme this year is “Cowboys and Indie Bands,” so feel free to pick out your favorite Western wear, give it some hipster flavor, and rock out to the sweet sounds of Nashville’s kings of queer alt country.

The Cincinnati Fringe Festival runs through June 6th with over 180 performances from 45 productions, featuring more than 230 local, national, and international artists. This year the Festival is set to welcome over 8,000 visitors to Downtown and Over-the-Rhine. Every single night of the Festival, after your shows let out, we’ll be hosting a different Bar Series event, so join us at Fringe Headquarters at Know Theatre of Cincinnati to raise a glass, have some fun, and get a little weird.
