Skyler Cross wants to “Bring the Music to Greenwood” with a new All-Ages Music Venue
Mr. Cross has a Kickstarter going to raise money for a new All-Ages Live Music Venue in Greenwood, IN. In this episode, we ask all the important questions, starting with numero uno: Is ‘Skyler Cross’ your real name, dude? Come on. Really?
SkyCro also talks about the terrible injustices and atrocities going on in the Greenwood, IN music scene, and the new crazy adventure he’s embarking upon. And you’re invited!
Greenwood Punk Rock
GREENWOOD, INDIANA Skyler Cross talks about his brand new all-ages music venue, recording studio, practice space, community punk rock rec room known as… well, he hasn’t decided on a name yet. And he hasn’t exactly got all the money he needs to open the darned thing.
But Skyler has a dream. And a Kickstarter. And a whole bunch of friends and the strong Greenwood Punk Rock community who are tired of not having a cool place to go hang out and see shows. Not just Punk Rock shows. But all kinds of shows. Country and Western.
Listen to the episode to find out how you can help Skyler get this new all-ages music venue off the ground in Greenwood.

Quotes from the Cross (Skyler Cross, That Is)
“Let’s stop outsourcing our music, and Help us create this crazy adventure!”
“The Greenwood area is not very friendly to new entrepreneurs. It’s very expensive. But it’s the greatest place to have a venue.”
“The idea is to get 90 people a week in the venue for shows at about $10 a ticket.”
“It’s going to start out very small.”
GreenfieldBlues on Periscope
Chris Brake Show takes to Periscope to talk with some cool folks like GreenfieldBlues! We talk about how Greenfield, IN is known for arresting everybody all the time. “Come on vacation, leave on probation” and “HandCuff County” instead of Hancock County are two things people say around here. GreenfieldBlues on Periscope actually told us about “HandCuff County” I think, so props to GreenfieldBlues on Periscope.
GreenfieldBlues also asks if the Chris Brake Show is for or against marijuana legalization. John talks about why marijuana is illegal according to his Brain Memory.
Our hearts and thoughts go out to Monotone Matt over the loss of his wife Steph. We’ll miss Giggles and we’re glad we got to know her at least a little bit. You can hang out with Matt on Periscope @MonoMatt
