Smith and friends, live music from the Noah Wilson Collective, and improv comedy from Off-Center’s own Cult Following ensemble.

Cult Following returns on Wednesday (Oct. 21) to celebrate “Back to the Future Day.” In Back to the Future Part II, Marty McFly travels to Oct. 21, 2015, to save his children, yet to be born in 1985, the setting got the original Back to the Future film.

Off-Center’s party this Wednesday will be an homage to the ’80s, hover boards and Marty McFly, complete with a DeLorean photo op. (Yes … real DeLorean!)

The bar, sponsored by Great Divide Brewery, opens at 7:30 p.m.; the show begins at 8. Then on Friday (Oct. 23), Cult Following hosts “Karoake Musical,” a mash-up of karaoke and musical theatre. Willing audience members will be invited to grab the mic and sing their hearts out while driving the actors’ improvised and unexpected plot twists.
